Howdy all.

I moved to an apartment! This was not originally the plan.

My brother's business is rapidly growing and he and my mom thought it would be a great idea for me to join him. He's a graphic designer, I'm an illustrator. He's fantastic at Illustrator and I'm fantastic at Photoshop. Anything he can't do I can do and anything I can't do he can do. It's a perfect partnership. So, I bought a 7 1/2 foot long printer to jump into the business with was too big to fit into my domain in the basement. So I ended up moving out so my printer can move in. For now I have named it Bruce.

All of my creative energies of late have been expended at SINET and working on a painting for mother's day. But rest assured DJDO is not dead. I'm just preoccupied and tired a lot. I miss doing comics for you all but adulting is time consuming. Below is Bruce and I in the new apartment. The apartment is a 90-ish year old cabin built of cedar.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art

I am an enterprising, visual story teller. Most call this an artist but I feel the term is too broad. Since the time I could hold a pencil I’ve found a passion not just in artistic expression but doing so in a way that includes a broad audience. I revel at the opportunity to present a viewer with a piece of work and watch their reaction, be it laughter, tears, indignation, or triumph. This desire has shaped and molded my life to bring me to where I am today.
I come from an inherently creative family. Being the only girl of four children I’ve been exposed to quite an adventurous life. Each family member has taught me a wide range of skills from auto mechanics to music. My parents always encouraged me to be inventive and independent and I’ve carried these principles into adulthood.
Today I am always looking for new things to try my hand at; recently I took up the violin and taught myself to play. I am a devout book binder and my other hobbies consist of finding the most challenging and random craft to make every other month no matter the medium. I also have the heart and soul of a satirist and have spent the greater part of my life creating works to entertain and amuse, my current means of delivery being the internet. My story is just beginning and I am eagerly working toward a life of productivity and prominence.

I won first in the State High School Editorial Cartoon category. It was a cartoon depicting the hot issue of the Terry Shivo controversy, it asked the question: "Right to Live or Right to Die?"

I've graduated with my Bachelors of Visual Art

Hi :D

Um, I have a question about DJDO.

Okay, um. This is probably going to sound impertinent, but here goes.

If you draw the Dutchman crew again could you maybe add Worm somewhere subtly in the background at all? It's okay if you can't. I understand. He's not a cannon character and no-one would really recognise him.

I forget which one he is, do you have a picture?
