I am definitely an amateur artist. ^_^ The initial influence on my drawing was Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts. Around the age of 8, I watched the bastardized version of GoLion (Voltron) for the first time. Then, the TV broadcasters began showing Mazinger Z (Tranzor Z) after GoLion. My love for manga and anime began. I certainly give homage to the manga and anime aesthetic, but I still want to keep my work more Western, as opposed to pretending to be something I am not. Clearly, I am not a manga artist. Yet, I strive to capture the cuteness associated with chibis and the moe culture. Please keep this in mind when viewing my work. Thanks.
