My Bio
This is a shared account by Marin and Karen.

Marin is the artist. Karen is the crafter. They are both writers.

Marin draws fanart and original art in traditional media, choosing to deal with the digital only on her most patient days.

Karen makes beaded cellphone charms and has an uncanny talent for predicting bead physics.

They both write fanfiction and original fiction, some of which are funny only to themselves, and most of which will never be shown publicly for fear for their dignities.

Contrary to popular belief, the two are not sisters.

Halloween Weekend in Toronto

Halloween Weekend in Toronto

Belated Updates: The weather's turned chillier and I caught my second cold in two months. 2011 is turning into a rather unhealthy year... I'm currently in Toronto, helping (or really just being a nuisance to) some ladies from Love Love Hill prepare for Doujinkafest, also known as the Anime North Halloween Dance Party, to be held tonight! I won't be tabling myself, but you can find some of the books I'm a part of (Kitto Cuticle, Vocalatte Tea Time and a brand new OlivineTeacup book, {Rain/Shine} at the Love Love Hill table if you're planning to attend! Of course, don't forget to check out their other selections too, all of which are highly r
