Quote of the Week
image"Honestly, I didn't really choose to use this style. It's just the way I draw. I pretty much find myself reading manga more than American comics so I suppose it's natural that I draw that way." -- 23-year-old artist, cartoonist and Slave Labor Graphics talent Christy Lijewski, who later describes herself as "an American comic artist who draws American comics," answers a question on her heavily manga-influenced art and provides a glimpse into the probable future.
