Freelance Illustrator and Professional Nerd

 

It is my goal to fill my readers with the same child-like wonder that I experience when reading a good story

 

  About Ashley  

I was 12 years old when I walked into a Burger King. Back then, they had children's booklets, filled with activities based around the chosen theme for that month. In the booklet that I had picked up, was a comic puzzle. The page was presented with the panels in the wrong order and you had to figure out how it was read by numbering them one my one.

I, however, had a different solution.

I redrew the entire page in the correct order.

From that moment on I was fascinated with visual stories and how they worked. I graduated from Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School in New Haven, Connecticut and set my sights on college. I wanted to stay local so Paier College College of Art was the clear choice. During my time there I was given several opportunities. Not only did I get to work with Yale and downtown New Haven to create paper sculptures for store fronts, but I was also given a story boarding job by one of the faculty for a local commercial. Ever since I graduated I've been working on personal projects as well as comic collaborations with different authors.

My current project comes from the amazing mind of Kris Burgos. It is a comic titled RUNT, here is a quote from his website!

"Runt is a fantasy-adventure about an Orc looking for the mage who cursed him. Hidden in the cartoon-styled, comedic book is a serious tale about outcasts and accepting one's self worth"
