It’s pronounced Hell-shaw, kind of like Hells Yeah!
The Short Story
I work remotely for an IT company that supports non-profit organizations across the U.S. It’s dope, but it’s still hard to keep up doing art. I cycle through the constantly overlapping triad of work/volunteer, art, and having fun.
The Long Story
During my college years, I had a sad realization of internalized racism–I had hated being Asian for like 20 years of my life. I went through the whole angry academic social justice phase, which helped me develop my first series, Generalizasian. After that, I got real quiet and depressed, which led me to my second series, Frustrasian. (Yup, I do run puns past their appreciated life).
Now I’m slowly tinkering with a third series, God Girl, which features a powerful Asian God girl alongside the characters of Skeleton Space Man and the Sleep Walker. I’m kind of going for a Holy Trinity kind of thing, but also need to pick up a Bible again at some point (I was raised Christian, but chose to flush that nonsense down the toilet in my later years to my dear mum’s dismay).
Beyond that, I’m working on a comedic coworker fan fiction comic, learning the joys of homeownership and birb-ownership, and trying not to be garbage.
