Artist Statement
Since kindergarten I have been in the world of make believe. I created a Star Wars role play to pretend to be a Jedi. Over time, that make believe universe changed drastically. It has gone through many revisions, the map changing a lot since its first design, and other fandoms being added to the role play. The name of it is the Adventure Game. I also have been drawing for many years, doing daily drawings for many years.

I am making a comic series of part of the Adventure Game that my two friends, Lunar and Rainstorm and I have been working on. This is one of the best stories that has come from my Adventure Game role play, and emphasizes the themes of my entire role play the most effectively, the themes being hope and family. Hope that through all the struggles, that there is still light, and the various family dynamics these characters have. An audio comic dub can be found on my YouTube channel, KirbyBabydolly.
