As a kid, I desperately wanted a dog so I would draw and write comics about a girl and her dog. When I was in high school, I would draw and write comics about my friends and the boys I had crushes on. After high school, I stopped making comics for a long time. I can't put my finger on why exactly, but I lost focus on a lot of things I loved in my late teens.
In 2019, a local bar/arcade hosted a comic competition for Halloween. I entered and was awarded "most horrifying" for a comic about a dentist pulling out an unwilling patient's teeth before putting them in his own mouth. Pretty gross, right?
Drawing my first comic in years was the spark that reignited my love for the art form. From there, I started drawing punny Pokémon-themed comics and then eventually comics about my daily life. After weeks of drawing a character that looked a lot like myself, I came up with my green-haired space bun design and the rest is kind of history.
My best ideas always come to me right as I'm drifting off to sleep—I think the human brain is at peak absurdist when between awake and asleep (and a little tipsy).
