♡about me♡

  • hi!! (ㅅ´ ˘ `)

    i'm vel, a super gay artist from a haunted holler in appalachia. 
    i love bright colors, good food, cartoons, and cute stuff.

    insert the cliché, "i've been drawing since i could hold a pencil," but art has always captivated me, especially when i'm inspired by the things that i love.
    ever since i attended my first anime convention in 2007, i've always wanted to travel and share my passions.

    i'm so lucky to have the support to help me achieve my dreams! thank you. ♡☆
