Celebration! LOL

In celebration of the completion of "Millennia War" issue #5, I made a sad attempt of drawing 'chibi' versions of me and Mike partying with Hannah, one of the main characters in the story. This is my first time drawing something chibi but I always like the art style so I just went for it. I'll practice more so I can get better, LOL!

Mike looks really funny.... In fact that doesn't even look like him. Looks like I drew him with a potatoe/pie/pizza head LOL!!!!! And Hannah looks deranged as if she's getting ready to bite someone O_o

Speaking at Hancock High School

About a week or so ago I visited Hancock High School to talk to the students about me, my art, school, and pursuing their goals. I was a little nervous at first (I'm usually nervous with public speaking, haha) but it turned out ok. The kids were really nice and respectful and they even presented me with a nice gift bag in the end!


Target Hope College Tour Feb. '09

Ever the busy lady, my latest adventure included me chaperoning a group of high school students for a Target Hope college tour. We traveled over east, visiting Howard University in Washington, D.C., Hampton University in Virginia, and finally North Carolina A&T. Not only did I help keep things in check, but I also served as a sort of media person, taking pictures and recording various things for the upcoming Target Hope promo video.

What is Target Hope? Well, it's a program that I joined when I was in high school... Created by Mr. Euclid Williamson, the program prepares high school students for college grade wise and mentally. There are Saturday classes in Math, History, etc. and then there are the college tours that occur about once a season... The program even exposes college students to grad schools.
