I'm an illustrator from a little old seaside town in New Hampshire. I've lived in "The Shire" nearly all my life (save college in Columbus,Ohio and work at Hasbro in Patwucket, RI sculpting action figures) and I love it here. I do definitely travel around from comic convention to convention peddling my wares and trying to make a splash in that big pool of the comic industry. Things have been going really well so far! I illustrated the kid's book from Yen Press, "Kitty and Dino" which has been nominated for a 2013 Eisner Award (Best Publication for Young Readers) and have been steadily working on variant covers for the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic microseries from IDW. I also illustrated a story in issue #5 of IDW's Womanthology as well.
I love comics, toys, cartoons, anime, anything nerdy: I will devour it like a fat kid at IHOP. Cosplay is another one of my many geek-tacular activities. I'm a part of a cosplay team called Human Sushi with my two best friends, Abby and J'aimie (see our finer nerd-moments on the Youtube). Also I love ghost hunting and usually try to make each convention visit a time to see that town's haunted hotspots. So far I have to say The Queen Mary in Long Beach is my favorite. I wish I could live in that ship! I hang glide during nice weather and paint the rest of the time. Doctor Who episodes fill in the gaps. Well....and going outside once in a while too...anyway!
A couple last tidbits be these: I'm heavily inspired by Japanese Ink Paintings (sumi-e) for their simplicity in composition, so much so that my signature is "Sara" in katakana (the Japanese alphabet system for foreign words and names.) and that I try to emulate the simplicity in my work. And also, I'm terrified of centipedes.
