I majored in Comics and Illustration at Yale University and minored in Literature. Or something.

Thanks for checking out my art, tons more at my main site:

Current Residence: Japan
Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite cartoon character: Toph
Personal Quote: Those that say, 'it's just a game,' shouldn't be playing.

It's been hectic and there's still a lot left to deal with, but I'm going to start updating this site slowly but surely so that it can catch up with my main site, &nbs…;

In the meantime, please check blogspot for art updates every Friday, Monday, and Wednesday, including new comics.  

I have since graduated college and can now take commissions.  If interested, please see this page:… for more information and art samples.

Hello! Sorry for the slow response. Anyway, I took a look at your gallery and it's looking like you're making great progress.

I would recommend that you draw very, very lightly with pencil so you can get your forms where you like them and then go back with heavier, darker lines. While drawing your preliminary light lines, make sure to use basic shapes like circles, spheres, and cylinders to make to help guide your final drawing. These preliminary lines are like the outline or rough draft before you write an essay, so you should feel loose and adventurous as you draw them.

Also, make sure to pause while drawing to step back and look at the piece as a whole to check that everything is coming together well: make sure the arms aren't too long, the head isn't too big, or the pose is working, or whatever. The trick is not to get too close to the drawing as you draw, but look at everything as a whole--never just work on a foot while ignoring the head you already drew, for example. Keep everything in mind as you draw; it's not a picture of a head, and a torso, and arms, and legs, it's a picture of a person that happens to be made of a head, torso, arms, and legs.

A lot of art improvement is just putting in time, so above all, just keep on drawing.

Ok, best wishes,

Hey Reuxben; it's me, the weird girl from Lit. for Young People who waved at you @ Spring Fling yesterday. I did not ever think I would find any other Yalies on DA!
Reuxben Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2010
Hey, man! Ah, it's been forever since I've been on DA, sorry sorry sorry for the insane lag. I have to remind myself how this site works, it's been so long.

Anyway, yeah, Yalies seem to be super timid about advertising their bulldoggery, but I know there are at least a couple Yalies on dA.

Ugh, sorry again for the ridiculous slow response.

How's everything going for you lately?
