i live in a small, midwestern college town. i'm getting my bfa in painting soon...then moving on to greener pastures (pref. on one of the coasts as i very much realize that i am not a midwestern girl). i live in a co-op that simultaneously drives me insane & makes me very happy. my most common activities are school attending, i work part-time in an art gallery as a security monitor (aka i get paid to do nothing), 90% of my day centers around making art on some level. i make my own sketchbooks and am usually working/creating/writing in my sketchbooks. i make a few comic strips. i'm currently working on three different comics: la vie banal (a comic about my friends and me...oh god...how very indie rock)..., open-minded souls (a comic of overheard conversations in coffee shops), and random installments in the zine i'm working on with 2 of my friends called perpetual disdain, where we basically mock ourselves...fun expiraments in shallow behavior indeed. usually i'm hanging out at my favorite coffee shop, Henry's in the evenings or watching movies with my film-maker friend, jess. so that's my crazy little life.
