marchaeMeet the Artist – Nana Marchae

When did you start drawing?

When I was 12, there was a boy in school who was very rude and always putting people down for their art. At the time I just liked to color; I didn’t really draw. He liked to draw fanart of DBZ, which is one of my favorites, so I bet him I could draw and color a better fan art piece than him. A mini art contest, and the winner got bragging rights. That’s when I discovered I could draw fairly well. I got a lot of praise from my piers, and I won by popular vote. He spit in my face later that day when he road past me on his bike after school.

What are your favorite things to draw?

My favorite subjects to do are mermaids and fairies. I’m eclectic, though, and enjoy creating a variety of art.

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

Amy Brown, she is a fantasy artist who uses watercolor. She was my first inspiration.

Any projects you’re working on or looking forward to working on?

I have a card game I am doing illustrating for, I have a couple realistic portrait commissions, I am teaching a pen and ink class for my local Bartlesville Art Association, I volunteer at the Price Tower setting up and tearing down art shows, I’m always making new prints for conventions, and the list goes on and on. I keep busy.

carMeet the Writer – Carleigh Foutch

When did you start writing?

I’ve been writing ever since I was about 5 years old. The earliest memory I have of working on my first chapter-length story was in grade school. I was very protective of it and refused to let anyone read it. We’ve come a long way.

What are your favorite things to write?

I love writing dynamic character arcs, usually for female characters, in a young adult fantasy setting (sometimes both!).

Who are some of your artistic inspirations?

Lin-Manuel Miranda because his stories are full of beautifully flawed people trying to make the best of a certain situation, and Amy Poehler because she has enough wit to be funny without being cruel. Also, my mom.

Any projects you’re working on or looking forward to working on?

I’m currently working on an original TV pilot that I’m very excited about!

What’s a good way for fans to check out your work?
