Current Residence: "CehNehDeh" - Land of the Duck Duct Tape!

Not much to say about myself; I've passed my first year in animation at Algonquin College (I graduated the Pre-Animation and Illustration program). I like drawing, writing, and making comics!

You can find my animation work and other cool stuff on my new art blog:
