Finding my own style of comics and really getting into plaster sculptures.
General Artist Inspirations: Thomas Cole, Nick Cave (soundsuit guy), Barbara Hepworth, Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore... lots of others but those are the ones that come to mind right now...
Inspirations for Comics Specifically: Scott McCloud, Daniel Clowes, Eddie Campbell, Guy Delisle, Art Speigelman, Matt Madden, Jessica Abel... those are the big ones that I can think of. I actually met Matt Madden! He's a super cool guy!
History of my art:
When I was a child I made Idan Carre, Cori Benson, Kellum Kester, and Watson Carre, who were all involved in an extensive plot involving wizards and dragons and fictional animals of all sorts. Later Idan and Cori evolved in to a pseudo gemini/two-spirit identity of mine. Other people have written fan fictions about them that make me so happy. I love them both dearly.
When I was in high school I was pretty alone so I made a 50 year plotline of some Sci Fi people. Primarily it retells the life and times of Michael Knight, an ex-military member who gets roped up in the ongoing war with aliens in space but he's really just looking for love and a clear conscience. It's obviously more complicated than that, so check out the journal entries about "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished". Might be under NGDGU, too.
When I was a senior in high school I experimented with full on fiction again with Hera and Tom. Hera is a little peasant girl who finds herself forced to work with Tom, the 7th son of the devil, to reunite the flesh and spirit of a cursed prince. That story didn't make it too far, but there were a lot of fun character designs. I might come back to it later, but for now it's asleep.
I'm a math major at the College of Wooster. I play keyboards in the band Rat Queen and I play the melodica in the college bluegrass band. I also enjoy philosophy, economics (I work on the living wage campaign here on campus), math research (I contributed significantly to a Crowdmath paper about the Broken Stick problem being published soon), good food (been vegetarian, thinking about going vegan but idk if I'm ready to handle that)...
I'm a sailor and I'm trying to become a minimalist. It's a slow and uphill battle. I'm trying to think intentionally about everything I do, what impact I have on others and society at large, promoting body positivity, feminism, equality, etc etc. Trying to up the social activism, I go to a lot of local demonstrations. I'm a woman but I prefer to go by Idan Carre on the internet for privacy reasons.
