How do you pronounce your name? Is it short for something?
My name is pronounced Ah-stee, not Ass-tea. A couple of years ago I created a five-minute ramble about my name since it’s such a popular topic: It’s not Ass-tea, if you want to know more. It is not short for anything, no.
Do you follow a blog schedule?
Generally speaking, no. I do post different content on specified days, but it is uncommon for each type of post to appear on the blog within a week. Here is what kind of content you can expect on different days of the week:
- Tuesdays: Stories
- Thursdays: Art
- Saturday: Life
The best way to make sure you don’t miss a post when it goes live is by signing up for email notifications.
What do you illustrate with?
Prior to June 2017, most of the illustrations featured were created with basic #2 HB pencils and Pilot G-2 07 gel pens. My current traditional supplies consist of Prismacolor Col-Erase pencils, Pigma Micron pens, Winsor & Newton Promarkers, and Copic sketchbooks.
As of May 2018, I primarily create using digital tools. These include the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and Procreate app.
What type of TV shows do you like to watch?
I’m open to anything, but my favorites tend to be reality competitions (The Challenge, Ru Paul’s Drag Race, Survivor), dark comedies (Shameless, OITNB, Fargo), and crime dramas (Sherlock, Breaking Bad, The Peaky Blinders). You can keep track of what I’m watching by checking out my Trak.tv profile.
What type of books do you like to read?
I primarily read Young Adult books of the fantasy and sci-fi variety (Chaos Walking series, The Lotus Wars series, All Our Yesterdays). Over the last couple of years I’ve also started reading (and loving) comics and graphic novels (Nimona, Saga, Through the Woods). You can keep track of what I’m reading by checking out my Goodreads profile.
