Born in New Orleans, moved to Los Angeles in the nineties and did web cartoons. Burnt out on the animation biz after having a ringside seat on the disastrous relaunch of a property she loved growing up. Moved back home and lost everything in Katrina. Currently living in Seattle and dabbling in burlesque dance while continuing to draw stuff.
If you're gonna be at Emerald City Comic-Con this weekend, come by and see me! I'll be at table CC-09 in the artist's alley, at the back of the second hall.
Thanks to me being slow this winter, I won't have any copies of Rita book 2, but I'll have some book 1 on hand if you still don't have that! Plus prints, plus just stopping by and saying "hey I like your stuff".
Would you like to know how I do my crazy thing in Illustrator? Here's a video of me drawing some stuff, and talking about what I'm doing.
I use the same basic methods when I'm doing full-color work; this is part of the comic, so it's working under the usual heavy restrictions of no gradients/blurs/complex palettes/etc.
i just so happen to come across your comic =3 and I have to say it's very interesting the way you have it set up ^^ I look forward to seeing more from you and getting to sit down and read through Decrypting Rita X3
