Karla wants your organs.

LAST UPDATED: 15 November, 2011

As of 12th October this year, I've been here 10 years! Time flies...


I'm a 26 year old (as of 24 April, anyhow) girl from North Carolina. I can't believe I've been on Elfwood for 10 years already! I joined this site shortly after turning 16.  I made so many good friends here, some are still my dearest friends to this day. I think it's lost a lot of the community feeling that it used to have, but nothing lasts forever, does it?

Time flies....


Up until about....2003-ish, I used nothing but traditional media. When I moved, I lost the space I used to have to paint, and so I learned to use Open Canvas and Photoshop. I still like to use coloured pencils on occasion, but I rarely ever paint anymore. I kind of miss it.

I've been drawing since I could hold a pencil, and yes, I know everyone says that, but it's true. I had been making my own comics since I was 4, which usually featured talking cats. I started drawing humans in middle school. In my first year of high school, I really got into anime and well....XD There you go. I'm not nearly into anime as much as I used to be. I still like it, but it's mostly old favourites and I don't really watch new ones. A lot of my more recent drawings are kind of departed from my old style, even though I still draw anime once in a while. Everybody changes, right?


Art trades are CLOSED

Commissions are OPEN.

If you want to commission me, email me. Don't just comment here. Elfwood's comment emails are really sporadic and undependable.


PLEASE NOTE. There was a point in time, years ago, when I argued with trolls. That time has passed. Rude comments  WILL NOT be answered. They will be swiftly deleted. Don't waste your time, because I don't care :)

Your artwork is incredible! Would you be interested in working as an artist for me? I am a writer and have been looking for an artist to draw my manga. I am in the process of asking Svetlana Chmakova to be my artist, however, if she doesnt accept, you are another option. An artist who works for me will recieve 60% of the profit if an editor accepts. If you are interested in being my artist, please contact me. But, Ill warn you, there are a lot of people Ive asked to be my artist! You might not make the cut (not because of your art, but just because Ive asked too many people.) But you might be the one I want! Contact me and Ill tell you what you have to do if you want to be the artist for my comic.
