jr high

come junior high, my sister introduced me to anime. i loved it. my two favorite shows, which let me to their infinitely better manga, were:
sailor moon

this was when i really started drawing. i wanted to be able to draw exactly what i saw in the books. i practiced, read endless drawing books, and read and reread the manga. i think what really drew me to these two particularly (besides their psuedo-girl-power characters and endless plot twists) was their lines. i can still get wrapped up in looking at the details and movement of the illustrations.  looking back, my love of and urge to imitate this type of artwork was a definite precursor to what i soon fell in love with in high school...
