|My webcomic :3 Active! Updates on Mondays|
I'm Hanna, born and raised in Finland until at the age of 20 I realized I had found the love of my life and I moved across the ocean to America to marry him johnnywhoa. I try to be social and friendly to strangers, but unfortunately the culture I lived in for 20 years doesn't handle that so well so if I reply to you, questioning your method of trying to get to know me, that's why.
Finnish people are coconuts: Hard on the outside, but we have soft gooey inside =w=
Me and art:
I have drawn 2D art since I was a little kid, and I can pin point my year of art officially becoming the center of my life around 2004. Ever since then I have aimed to become better at it with each drawing and comic page, teaching myself all these skills that one day, hopefully, will pay the bills.
Me and comics:
Comics and me are still finding that place where we work perfectly together. Around 2004 I tried starting my own story, but boy did that go bad... And after that I tried starting other comics, "It's not a love story" being one of them, but the time and place was just wrong for that and the project ended. Now my life circles around my two comics CvsH-Temperature and Marid-TheComic and keeping them going is so much easier because my years of comic making has taught me to not push myself to limit and past it with each page.
Me and writing:
I will never write books, I can tell you that right now, but I love writing story notes for future comics. My aim is to write so that people can't always tell what is going to happen, so they get some change from those cliche filled stories out there. My personal skills are humor, romance, drama and fantasy. My weaknesses are horror, insanity, real life stories... and not shipping characters.
Me and learning:
I'm bad at taking critisism, especially if I didn't ask for it and especially if it's told about everything I do. Give me a break guys. lol. Sometimes I just wanted that little confidence boost.
But what I am good at is helping people learn. I personally believe that coming to an artist and asking them to teach you something they know is one of the best things you can do, and them agreeing to teach you tells about them as a person more than enough. An artist is a teacher, and anyone who comes to them is their student. I never want to deny them my knowledge if what I show them helps them improve as an artist.
Me and future:
Right now all I do is sit on my ass all day waiting for USCIS to contact me about my green card so I can start looking for a job or education. But I aim to one day study art to become a graphic designer so I can start working as an artist and not just do freelance once every blue moon.

Personal Quote: "Just saying"
Go back in calender and look what weekday you were born:
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
