Crappy screenshot of  Sanctuary alt cover is crappy. Photoshop decided to freeze while I was saving this so I had to take a quick screenshot to preserve what I had at least lol

Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 27. I have an MFA in painting from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (2015). I have a BFA in painting and drawing (art history minor) from the University of Akron (2012). I'm working on getting certified to teach k-12 art in the state of Michigan! I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 11, 2016, 7:43 AM
Wanna start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR!! :boogie::dance::boogie::dance::boogie::dance::boogie::dance:

Ok, now that's out of our system, lemme explain the title of this journal: I'm reviving a comic my brother and I wrote over 15 years ago :D Why you ask? Well, it's been something that I've been wanting to do for a very long time but had neither the time, energy, or resources. I came to the conclusion about a month ago that I wasn't really waiting on anything in particular, and if I had put more effort into it I could have revived the comic years ago. Negativity against myself aside, it's actually a good thing that I'm working on it now as a more matured artist because I now have an increased ability to make what's in my head appear physically. The comic has had several titles, but the one we're going with is from the second draft of the story that we worked up about 12 years ago, Sanctuary. 

what's it about? *leans in closely*

Well, it's set in a dystopian futu- *oh real original Xadrea* Don't you sass me! Now, what was I saying? Oh yes, it's set in a dystopian future in which the Universe is being destroyed by a world eating sentient techno-virus. *again so original* Don't make me come over there! Anyways, the Earth is no more and no one quite remembers what happened to it. All that is known is that it was destroyed by the virus at some point centuries beforehand. Humankind survived by fleeing to a planet that was similar to Earth named Red Moon. However Red Moon was already inhabited by humanoid beings. Red Moon was much less heavily populated and oppressed under human invasion. *humans wreck everything amiright?* Uh, yes. Well, as a result naturally war broke out and nothing was accomplished. While that was happening Red Moon began dying as the virus that had destroyed Earth mysteriously appeared. With the virus killing hundreds of thousands of people on both sides, and Red Moon becoming increasingly unable to support life an alliance was made between Humankind and the natives of Red Moon. That's when the last city, Sanctuary, was built. 

I made a little intro vid for it ^ ^
