I'm 19, I'm Canadian.

I'm inspired by Tim Burton and Theodor Geisel, and just a tad obsessed with Jim Carrey.

 

Nell Aluna Ndung’u
New superhero alert!!!
Nell Aluna Ndung’u is a licensed optometrist from Nairobi, Kenya. Although she believes her greatest power is the will to learn, her superpower is the ability to emit, absorb and distort visible light. Her strong belief in understanding ones own abilities is what led her to study optics, and her passion for vision led her to become a professor at l’Université de Montréal so that she could devote her life to researching a cure for blindness. She can speak five languages fluently: English, Swahili, French, Japanese, and German— and has a limited understanding of several others. She has done Ted Talks and is recognized worldwide—although many people believe her efforts to cure blindness are futile and wasteful. She’s basically Superwoman! But no. She’s new. She’s different. She’s her own. She’s Doctor Ray!
lol I just drew this picture, coloured it, and then stared at it for three hours thinking up her life story and how it ties into a larger project of mine that seems decades away from being completed—which is how I come up with most of my stories.

I. have. FINALLY. finished my comic! I started this one two years ago.
It truly all started in 2011, when I doodled a bored looking girl and decided to colour her hair in lime green. I immediately drew her brother and sister, and ideas about their personalities and lives swam into my head.
And then, in 2012, yet again from a doodle, AJ (Aamir Joshi) was born. And together, they were the story. I tried writing it as a novel but quit after a couple weeks, as usual.
I was already leaving out way too much information when it was a 70+ page comic, but getting it printed as a book has forced me to shorten it down to a mere 40!
It’s far to brief!!! It’s just a summary of the intricate, never-ending story that made my marks drop in grade 12, that has monopolized my brain for the past three years. But this is good. I have a habit of dragging things out with too much attention to detail and then getting bored (tehe) and not finishing them. (ex. bored: the novel!) The page limit forced me to complete this. And now, possibly, I’ll eventually remake this the way I wanted it: filling in the gaps, being more detailed and possibly novel-like… and hopefully actually drawing backgrounds!
Now I just have to figure out how the heck to order this book with the limited time groupon deal, and then it’ll be REAL and I can use it in my OCAD portfolio!!!

Crazy in Crush

You’re driving me insane, you know.
You’ve got inside my mind.
When you come near, it clearly shows
I’ve left my thoughts behind.

My heart thumps fast, I cannot here
What’s scrambled in my brain,
For you are here! And, oh I fear,
You’ve driven me insane!

I’d just like to mention, once more, how much I despise having crushes.

My room is all my failures.

The keyboard that I never play,
The words I write but cannot say,
A shelf a-stock with unread books,
A closet full of unworn looks,
The teacups that I never use
Because I want them to stay new,
The artwork that remains undone,
The trophies that I never won,
The French to English diction’ry
That’s still quite unfamiliary,
Guitars with chords I do not know,
And Oh, the Places I Won’t Go!

If Dr. Seuss can use fake words then so can I. 

Crush On You

I have a crush on you.
A heart thumping,
stomach wrenching,
brain scrambling,
lung collapsing,
hand shaking,
leg wobbling,
sweat producing,
blush inducing
crush on you.

I must say, I loathe having crushes.
When I have a crush, it’s not cute. I completely malfunction as a human being and it’s a humiliating disaster. A disaster!

Violet Beauregarde: After Wonka
And after that disaster at that wretched chocolate factory with that wonky chocolatier, Violet Beauregarde could still always be found with a wad of gum between her teeth. Had she not learned her lesson? Well, sure, she’d been scared of gum for quite a few years—she wouldn’t go near it!—but then she realized she’d already been turned into a blueberry by the craziest piece of candy that could ever exist. What else could happen?

I’m trying to make my cartoon as pretty as the real Tom Welling, but I’m realising it’s impossible.
