I'm a freelance artist based in New York who loves making fanart and whatever sparks joy. My art is typically PG varying into PG-13 with a cartoony style, I love using vibrant colors and dynamic lines in my work. Lately, I've been creating artwork digitally through my iPad using Procreate, but I still love traditional methods like marker, watercolors and ink. I find my inspiration through animated works, action-packed movies with a heart-warming narrative, the color blue, and admiration for the little things that give life meaning.
When I'm not drawing, I work on my website, play video games, spend time with my two cats and engage in media that makes me kick my feet like a school kid.
More than anything, my goal is to open an online store to sell my own stickers, prints and pins. I also would love to stream my art and do let's plays, but that's more of an aspiration than anything else. One step at a time.
For now, you can support me by following my social media, liking and/or sharing whenever I post new art, buying me a cup of tea through Ko-Fi, and taking a look through my listings and maybe commissioning me! Either way, every bit helps and thank you for reading this far!

Favorite Music Artists
What's your name spelled backwards?
Sipal or Seluj depending on who's talking to me.
What did you do last night?
Yesterday, me and my friend spent all day playing Kirby's Revenge of Dream Land, had pizza and watched toy commercials from the 2000's! We took a break from that because of how killer the levels were and decided to play a different game. Which was the Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe demo. He left pretty late so all that was left for me to do, was watch Friends. The night wasn't very eventful, but the day was!
The last thing you downloaded onto your computer?
I'd say, a .mp3 of Policy of Truth by Depeche Mode, buttons and stamps.
What do you look forward to
this next winter?
It's February so I think winter's pretty much leaving for now. Until I jinx myself that is. But, the one thing I look forward to every winter, is the snow! I love the chunky flakes, and especially how the snowfall looks at night!
Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery?
No, I haven't lol! I have licked a Nintendo Switch game cartridge, if that counts as anything.
Last time you swam in a pool?
Last summer I believe. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do that more this year. I love the pool, and the smell; I can't wait!
What are you wearing?
As of 1:49 pm, I'm wearing beige boots with grey sweater socks, black sweatpants, a long-sleeve Kirby's Adventure shirt along with a jean jacket adorned with pins and buttons; I'm also wearing a crystal necklace with quartz, amethyst, and rose quartz, earrings of the Soot Sprites from Spirited Away and a star ring that I made out of a paperclip!
How many cars have you owned?
None! Giving how expensive and a huge responsibility they are, I hope I don't have to. But, then again, that can change in the near future.
Type of music you dislike the most?
Why are those people always screaming?
I have no idea. Depends on the person you're talking about.
Are you registered to vote?
Yes, I am!
Do you have cable?
Ever since childhood, I mostly had basic (PBS was my go-to). For a brief while we got other channels late such as Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon, which was nice! Until we canceled our cable entirely in favor for streaming services.
What kind of computer do you use?
I have a 13-inch Macbook Pro!
Ever made a prank phone call?
I remember years ago as a kid, me and a friend decided to call random numbers to prank call. When we actually got a person on the other end, we chickened out and hung up!
You like anyone right now?
That's a pretty broad question to be honest. I'm not seeking a relationship at the moment, I'm still figuring some parts of myself out.
Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving?
I could see myself going sky diving, if I had to choose one. But then again, I really don't want someone on my back the whole time. Realistically, none of them! I still have a small fear of heights.
Furthest place you ever traveled?
From New York, to Florida.
What's your favorite comic strip?
I love a good Garfield, Peanuts or Calvin & Hobbes strip.
Do you know all the words to the national anthem?
Yes, I do!
Shower, morning or night?
I try to shower in the morning so I can get it styled the way I want, and not have it messed up too much overnight.
Best movie you've seen in the past month?
I always love watching The Hobbit trilogy. The Desolation of Smaug is my favorite out of the three.
Favorite pizza toppings?
Caprese pizza is my main go-to. Or the closest thing to that with ricotta, tomatoes and spinach and white sauce, which is the best! I was a pineapple-pizza eater when I was a kid, and I still am to be honest!
Chips or popcorn?
Chips! Sour Cream & Onion, and Salt & Vinegar were my favorites! I still like Salt & Vinegar, but lately I've been loving Garden Salsa Sun Chips. Although, I do love White Cheddar popcorn from Smartfood.
What cell phone provider do you have?
I have Verizon.
Have you ever smoked peanut shells?
No, I have not! I didn't even know that was a thing! WAIT I just looked it up! I thought it was to eat, I didn't know people actually smoke them!! I have done neither of these things, I especially do not want to the the latter.
Have you ever been in a beauty pageant?
Nope! I was never into those as a kid. Especially not now! I think their beauty standards are ridiculous.
Orange Juice or apple?
I like both! Depends on the brand of orange juice however. Some can be more tangy than others. In that case, apple juice never lets me down.
Who were the last people you sat at lunch with?
I'm not in school anymore lol.
Favorite chocolate bar?
I love Hershey's chocolate bars; Milky Way and Twix come in close.
Who is your longest friend and how long?
My longest friends come in close to each other; Parker, Matt and Braeden. We'd be friends for ten years now, I don't know where I'd be today without them.
Last time you ate a homegrown tomato?
Ooh, I think last summer. Either from one of my mom's work friends or from my grandma. I can't remember!
Have you ever won a trophy?
I may have won a dance trophy years ago. I used to take classes when I was a kid.
Favorite arcade game?
I love Pac-Man. Any Breakout or Pinball game however will keep me occupied for hours!
Ever ordered from an infomercial?
I haven't! As a kid, I wanted to so badly but I never took that chance! I mostly looked for the item in store.
Sprite or 7-UP?
I find Sprite and 7-UP to be pretty interchangable as long as they're in the cans. Otherwise, Sprite all the way!
Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school/work?
The closest thing I had to wear for a uniform, was through working at GoodWill. Blue shirt and jeans/khakis.
Last thing you bought at Walgreens?
A birthday card for my dad!
Ever thrown up in public?
Years ago, at a cousin's graduation party. I don't know how I got sick. It was probably either something I ate there, or the combination of the beer and cigar smoke I kept smelling. Or both! By the time I made it to the bathroom, someone was in there and I ened up throwing up right outside. I was able to get my grandpa's attention, and hang out in the car for the rest of the party. I haven't thrown up again since!
Would you prefer being a millionaire or finding true love?
True love would be nice! Any kind! I feel like you can abuse the privilege of being a millionare. There's so many different types of love that can last much longer than money. Sorry if that sounds cheesy!
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Did you have long hair as a young kid?
I had short hair during elementary, tried growing my hair longer during middle school. Right at the end of high school, I went back to short hair and even had an undercut! When I started college, I went for a shorter, non-conforming haircut and I never regreted it! Feels so much lighter. Fast forward to now, I'm kind of growing my hair out into a mullet situation.
What message is on your voicemail machine?
I used to have parody voicemails, but my parents would get on my case about those. Now, I haven't set it to anything specific, I just have the generic, phone-assigned voicemail. Maybe in the future, I'll change it.
Where would you like to go right now?
Right now, I've gone pretty much everywhere I needed to go today. It's nice being at home, and working on my things in peace.
Whats the name of your pet?
I have two cats! A big grey guy named Cosmo, and a grey and white tuxedo named Tommy!
How did you get your pet?
We got Cosmo from a shelter in Gates, and Tommy from another shelter that used to be closer to me, but they closed down!
What kind of backpack do you have, and what's in it?
Depends on the day! I used to bring everything I needed in a small, black backpack. Ever since I got a new iPad, it won't fit anymore, so I have to use my bigger, blue-paisley backpack. When I need to work on things, I bring my Macbook, iPad, sketchbook and other art supplies, along with respective charging cables. Most times, I have my jean jacket to store the smaller things like my phone, wallet and DS Lite.
What do you think about most?
I think about how to spend my time for the day, all the projects that I want to do and how I'm gonna accomplish them. Being kinder to myself if I don't accomplish everything within a day, and resting when I need to. Figuring out what my limits are, and respecting them.
