Why hello there!

I'm Whirlwynd, most people call me Whirly for short. I was formerly a factory worker, but am now trying to make my way as a professional comic artist/animator. Most people know my art for being super colorful, glowy and ☆.。.:*・°☆glittery☆.。.:*・°☆

Webcomics are one of my favorite things! I've been making them for a long time and reading them for almost as long -- I recall posting a comic in the late 90's but I didn't really discover any kind of webcomics community until 2002.

My active series are:
20 Galaxies: https://tapas.io/series/20Galaxies A magical girl/epic fantasy hybrid about four kids chosen to save the world. It's a throwback to the "adventures" I had as a kid so there's a lot of 90's aesthetic in it.

Lady Unlucky: https://tapas.io/series/Lady-Unlucky Short spinoff of 20 Galaxies that's intended for a more mature audience. Lady Luck joins the Bad Guys. Sort of a reverse mystery where we know the suspect but not the crime. I am planning on making this one into a feature-length animated movie!

Speaking of which, you can find my animations here: https://www.youtube.com/user/geminicblue

I live in Colorado in the United States and I love mountains and hiking (the adventure continues!) I'm an avid birdwatcher and also have interest in meteorology, baseball, American football, and dreams. I'm normally a reserved person but I'm trying to change that. I'm also a sucker for junk food -- and also trying to change that. Geez, you guys might be meeting a whole new me.

Fictional universes and shows I'm into: Sailor Moon, Game of Thrones/ASOIAF (So far I like the books more than the show), Wheel of Time, Bob's Burgers, Archer

A sampling of my favorite webcomics: Engelbaum, The Hues, Flipside, Mystery Babylon, Shattered Starlight, Cerintha, Diskordia
Oh man did I pick a bad time to introduce myself to a new forum. (And it's not going to get any better soon :() But thank you for the welcome! And yay TRiPPY!
