Hello, I’m Ren, the 20-something-year-old American comic artist behind kampingchicken! Born, raised, and residing in the Pacific Northwest, I’m best known for my terrible sense of direction, a slight obsession with pineapples, and binging shows on Netflix. Of course, when I’m not utilizing those skills, I spend my time drawing. My comics, like their name, are often unusual, a pretty good mix between amusing slice of life encounters and the weird.

Drawing has always been my creative outlet, and paired with a love for storytelling, comics quickly became an ideal way to express myself. In 2017 I showed some comics I’d scrawled out in a notebook to a friend while we were camping, and surprised by how much he enjoyed them, I began sharing with friends and family, and then took to the internet. Whenever I can get people to smile, laugh, or relate with my work, my heart is warm. I make art for love, kindness, and the weird things in life.

That's because it gets the best reviews out of everything I've done that I keep procrastinate ^^. Would probably have stopped a while ago if the results of it was bad !

The people closest to you are indeed the ones you get mad at the most. It takes balance to maintain a friendship.
