I’ve had this website since 2004! I used to code it myself using notepad, having learned some basic html and css from my little sister and online tutorials. I moved on to Dreamweaver eventually, coding most of the website myself. If you want to see some of the previous website designs, check out this google album. Sadly, my limited knowledge of coding is no longer sufficient to make a website on my own. Luckily Arjen Klaverstijn came to my rescue and made this version of the site in WordPress.
People often ask how I built up my social media following. I’ve been very active with posting my artwork online ever since I started drawing digitally in 2003, so that’s where it started for me. Besides drawing on oekaki boards, I posted all my work to Deviantart and maintained a personal website. Over the years, I kept doing these things as well as branching out to tumblr, and soon after that, instagram, facebook, and twitter. By posting consistently for such a long timeframe, what started as a small follower base grew gradually larger and larger over time. The platform that has had the biggest impact on my following is Deviantart, which I used very actively at a time where most artists were concentrated on this platform.
