I love reading! I love anything written for the children's market--picture books, MG, YA and everything in-between! Sometimes I even surprise myself by enjoying a book intended for adults (gasp!). I love illustrated books, but I also enjoy reading novels where I get to create my own pictures in my head.... and sometimes I'm not satisfied until I draw them! Since I do fanart mostly for myself and to practice my skills, its fun for me to try doing different styles from what I keep in my portfolio.
