I've been an avid reader and loved story-focused games for as long as I can remember. My passion has always been characters; I love anything with really memorable characters in. My favourite thing is the combination of a great character design, excellent performance (whether it be by an actor, animator or comic artist drawing, acting and voicing the emotions) and a strong narrative voice coming together, so I don't really discriminate media. I have a preference for long-form storytelling though generally because you really get into the meat of a character with plenty of time to explore their personality, see them in lots of different situations and interacting with a variety of people.
For a long time, I thought of myself as an artist who likes writing, and never felt I was worthy of the title of "writer", but at this point, I've put so much more research, study and practice into the craft of writing than most people who flaunt that title, and decided to give myself credit for the fact that I didn't just draw the comics I made that placed in national competitions; I also wrote them. So yeah, I'm a Writer/Artist...I guess?
I love to read superhero comics and shounen manga stuff, and I wanted to create something like that, but addressing the lack of interesting female characters and queer representation in those genres. Like to me it doesn't make sense that the idea of an action comic for an older audience, instead of being more nuanced, is just more gory and full of gratuitous objectification. I don't want that. I want basically "Runaways, but instead of teenagers, it's a bunch of kooky grownups like Brooklyn 99".
So I make what's basically shounen manga about an adult woman (once we're out of this damned prologue...) who drinks wine with her friends and has complex feelings about with her job... Which is "punching monsters". I've ended up with what I'd describe as "What if Leslie Knope was British Naruto?"
