My Bio

You can call me either Amanda or Argo - both are my name. I got into drawing when I was a kid as a means of being able to make everything I imagined real in a sense. By middle school I knew I wanted to be an illustrator and chase art as a profession. Since then there's been blissful highs and depressing lows, but my passion for wanting to draw has remained. From making comics during class in high school to reigniting and strengthening my love for creative arts in general by experimenting in college, I know that I will strive to create as long as there are still ideas in my head that I feel the need to share.

In all honesty (and with no shame at all), I fall victim to imposter syndrome way too often and it is difficult to build myself up as an artist, especially since I couldn't hit the ground running after graduating college. Once upon a time, this account flourished with new art on a regular basis with little to no fear of judgement. I was "barely learning" after all. Now, my goal is to revive this "dead" account and make it flourish once more. I wish to overcome my fears and become the illustrator the younger, middle-school me dreamed to be. In the most anime way possible, I will do my best to chase and obtain my dream, even if it means having to relearn things and try new approaches over and over again. I am once again learning.

I'm Hispanic. I'm in my 20s. I may be too nice for my own good, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not comfortable with sharing where I'm from and where I've been, but just know that I love San Antonio, Texas and my Texas pride is grand. I'm a Christian but I ain't a radical. (I mean just look at my video game and music tastes.) I identify as androgynous, so if I look male or female or whatever in-between to you, that's what I am. I'm a Gemini and I take pride in it despite not caring much for astrology. I took a personality quiz and it said I was a Campaigner so there's that too. Lastly, my best friend says I'm an anime protagonist - like Naruto/Midoriya level anime protagonist. (You can tell I love anime, I'm sure.)

I'm by no means professional...yet? I'm learning things as I go because the art program at the college I went to wasn't up-to-par with teaching artists like me how to go about this business, at least as an illustrator in a town who has no love for illustrators unless they make political comics. (I am not a fan of politics so sucks for me.) But I'm going to handle this the way I've handled everything else in my life thus far: I'm just gonna wing it. I'm just going to keep learning, keep trying, keep experimenting, and keep moving forward, and reviving this account may just help me.

Weeeeellllll...this is awkward. Once upon a time I said I was going to revive my DeviantArt and get back into the grind, but clearly I was lying. This time I'm not...at least I hope I'm not. DeviantArt has changed more than I have these past 3 years. Every now and then I stopped by to see things from the people I watch and the groups I'm in, but dang was this a leap. It's nothing like the DeviantArt I joined into back a nearly 10 years ago. 10 years...man. I was in 8th grade back then just waiting for Linkin Park to drop A Thousand Suns, now I'm a year removed from college just hoping I can get my job back in a few weeks. The world's in a very weird place right now, especially the US. What a fitting time to join back and document how a pandemic single-handedly shut the world down, a literally stupid and racist dictator is running the US into the ground, and all this while I try to move out and take charge of my future. That's a plot twist if I've ever seen one. I haven't

I'm Going to Change (I Promise)

Wow, I touched DevinatArt again.     Recently I got an email from DeviantArt celebrating my sixth anniversary. I've continuously creeped around DeviantArt from time to time, but this email hit me: I haven't submitted anything in more than a year. I haven't brushed my profile up. I haven't changed anything. I kept saying I'd get back into the game, but I never did. That email telling me I've been here six years was a wake-up call for me. I used to put so much effort into my DeviantArt and I used to keep up with lots of people and all of that seemed to stop. Though not to use this as an excuse, but college and family events had big roles to pl
