Cartoons and anime are the main style of my work. I make up my own characters. I also take characteristics from popular characters and mesh them together. In middle school, I saw someone drawing an anime character and I was inspired. I wanted to learn how to draw anime, so I started practicing. Now when I draw, I draw two versions of my characters: one anime and one cartoon. My autism has no effect on my artwork. I loved to loose myself in my drawings. I hope to someday make a living off my artwork.
