From July 2014 to April 2017 I drew pages for the comic "Concerning Rosamond Grey". Currently I'm writing the script and world-building for my second comic, and improving my art technique.

With my comics, I have two goals: one, to improve my comic art to a professional level; and two, to achieve this goal using only traditional methods. I get my inspiration from the works of Osamu Tezuka, Hagio Moto, Shigero Mizuki and Keiko Takemiya. I would also like to try having no physical or digital screen tone.

Hello Friends,

I haven't forgotten about you, really. :) I also haven't abandoned dA: at least, I intend to return. Life has just been interesting. 

The good news is that I got a job Berlitz teaching English: this works well with my intended missionary occupation in Japan. 

The bad news is I have a bad roommate situation, and I will be moving out. Thankfully I have a place to stay for the month of September, and then I will have to figure out where I am going. 

The other bad news is I haven't done much of anything art-related. Maybe it's stress, maybe it's change, but I haven't been inspired to do much. I hope my art fervor will return.

The other good news is that I intend to start a general blog: since I'm an Idaho girl that moved to Boston, I thought of calling it "Potato in Boston". I'll see if the domain is still available. People from here, people I know IRL, and an assortment of individuals have told me that I can write, and if I wrote something, they would read it. So I'll give it a try. 

Talk to you soon,

Hestia.
