Who are you?
Just a woman who wishes to remain anonymous.
Why the anonymity?
I value my privacy.
Where do you live?
What's your marital status?
I am married to the most awesome woman ever.
Do you make comics for a living?
No. I have a high-tech job that keeps me very busy and pays well, so I have no need to make any money out of comics.
Does that mean that your comics will always be free?Absolutely. I would feel like a sad beggar and a loser if I asked for money. The only thing I ask of my readers is to please share my comics with others. That really makes me happy. Comments are also a bonus, if they are inclined to.
Why do you make comics?
Because I have been writing all kinds of stories in my head since I was a little girl, and now I can't hold them inside anymore. I love literature, especially the classics. It's fascinating that they wrote hundreds, even thousands of years ago, yet they still speak to our very core. This is what inspires me and my main goal: creating stories that go straight to the human heart and brain.
Why not writing novels, then?
Because I love comics and the immediacy that only images can convey.
Are you inspired by any comics?
Yes, but it's so little, it's not even worth mentioning.
What kind of stories do you create?
Mostly sci-fi with lots of drama and pretty heavy themes like politics, religion and homophobia, but I also have an alter ego called AnarchisTonsil who writes rather comical stuff. You will see that toward the end of the year.
Do you write, draw and color all your comics?
Yes, except for parts of Dynamic Spores , where I do just the writing.
Do you draw traditionally or digitally?
I started fully traditional, now I am fully digital. It's much faster and I'm very happy with the results.
Will you give art tutorials?
Not a chance in hell, they're way too boring to me.
Will you at least show how you create your pages?
No, who cares?
Will you go back to doing reviews?
It is very unlikely, because I am fully focused on my comics.
Do you ever work with other artists?
I did a few collaborations with others (mostly the anthology Tales of the Wandering Stranger ), but I am no longer considering that option. As I said before, I have to focus on my own comics.
Did you go to art school?
No, I'm 99% self-taught.
