Hello~! My name is Lindsay. Born November 9th, 1981 (sign: Scorpio), I'm a comic artist born and currently living in Central Florida.
I've always had a love for art, and have been drawing from the time I was able to hold a crayon. Growing up, I enjoyed painting realistic renditions of animals, as well as drawing my favorite cartoon characters. I discovered manga and anime in my teens, which also influenced my artistic style. I'm also a huge fan of animated Disney movies and wanted to be an animator before I discovered and fell in love with the medium of comics.
My drawing and coloring skills are mostly self-taught through observation, dedication, and a lot of practice. In school, I took as many drawing and painting classes as possible. I've also taken a participated in a few community life drawing, cartooning, and animation classes.
Some of my published works include the three-volume graphic novel series, Peach Fuzz, how-to books Draw Furries and Draw More Furries, Digital Manga Workshop, and Mangaka America.
Comics I've contributed to include Fraggle Rock: Tails and Tales, Domo: The Manga, Archie Comics' Sabrina the Teenage Witch (penciler on issues 92, 96, 97, and 98) and Sonic the Hedgehog (penciller on Off-Panel strip comics), and the grand prize winning entry based on Peach Fuzz in Rising Stars of Manga Vol 2.
When I can find the free time, I enjoy sketching, reading manga and novels, playing video games (especially RPGs), watching animation, bike rides and walks, interacting with nature, swimming, and browsing the internet.
Favourite characters: Minako Aino (Sailor Moon), Raiden (MGS), Link (Zelda), Kiba (Wolfs Rain), Rikku (FFX) Utena (Utena)
