Hello! My online name is Blimpcat and my real name is Steph! I'm 33 years old and I live in the United States. My greatest passion is creating digital illustrations of my favorite characters from series I enjoy, such as games like Minecraft (QSMP) and Kingdom Hearts.Along with illustration, I also have a Master's Degree in Fine Arts & Animation! As a freelance artist, I frequently sell my work at local conventions, as commissions and in various forms of merchandise in my online shops.
I would like to get into streaming and grow a community to share my passions for art and entertainment with others! Expanding my online shop to have more original work is something I would love to do in the later future, but for now I'm really enjoying creating fan work!One of my long term goals is to be financially supported enough through my art to be able to pursue my greater goals and to help others through charity. ♥
