Pen name: deanna.c.m
Home: New Jersey
Schooling: I’m a double major in Psychology and Spanish, with a focus on translation studies. I will be a teacher in Spain come this September.
★ I am an illustrator and I love to draw. Whenever I can, that is. I carry my moleskin in my purse with me everywhere as well as my drawing supplies just in case I ever get the time or the mood ever strikes. I’ve been drawing since I was 13 but I didn’t start taking it seriously and as a possible career until Spring of 2010. I’ve done illustrations for a book and sold at animeNEXT Artist Alley 2011 and 2012.
★ I cry about a lot of things. Whether they’re happy, sad, or anger inducing.
★ I love speaking Spanish and always try to better how I speak it whenever I can.
★ I’m someone who enjoys decorating her area. I like to decorate with all types of things, like drawings people have given me or art I find inspiring. I just moved back in to my house and setting my room up again was one of the most fun experiences I could think of.
★ I can fangirl pretty hard about things I care about.
★ My watch-list right now is The Office, Parks and Recreation, Keeping up with the Kardashians and any pretty anime I can tolerate.
★ My reading list right now is Fullmetal Alchemist, Sunshine Sketch, Kimi Ni Todoke, Bakuman, Bunny Drop, Sailor Moon and Kobato. I like buying manga and having the physical copy in my hand, so I rarely (if ever) read manga online.
★ I’m Hispanic. My parents were born in Bolivia and I was born in New Jersey.
★ I’m a homebody and don’t like to go out a lot. I’d much rather stay inside with my air conditioning and my computer and my drawing supplies and my notebooks ^^; I do not like the sun.
★ I was a Pre-K teacher for a few months and it was the best and worst experience of my career. I learned a lot and met so many great kids that have given me the sweetest memories that I will take with me forever.
★ I’m in love with my best friend, and I have never met a better person than him. He is the blessing I never thought I’d get. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ ♥ 10/27
★ I love my art idols. A lot. So much so that simply getting an update from them on their tumblrs makes my entire day sometimes. They are the most inspiring individuals that I have ever known.
★ Stars are my favorite thing in the entire world.
★ I probably spend the same amount on art supplies that someone my age probably spends on clothes/makeup/shoes.
★ Bows and Lolitas <3 So much love.
★ I try to live every day in a way that I can go to bed at night feeling proud of myself.
