🌈 About Me 🌈
My name is Marina, I was born in ’83. I am an immigrant –I became an American citizen on May 21st, 2021. I live in Florida, I’m married; I have no children, and never want to have any, but I do love animals and have a variety of pets at any given time. My favorite things in the world are reading, drawing, and writing.
I am an illustrator and writer specializing in fantasy illustration and character design. These days I work on my own personal projects only, and do not take commissions.
I have several book series on which I work on simultaneously. Please look under “Meganeea” or “The Tale Of Horus” in the menu to read a couple of them for free! You can also support me on Patreon to keep these projects alive.
Online, I am represented by a little squirrel character who shares my name and personality, and whom you can see in the above GIF in the company of my site’s unofficial mascot, stuffed tiger Ricky Parky (a Build-A-Bear stuffed animal that I also own in real life.)
Most of my days are spend drawing while watching anime or stuff on YouTube –particularly channels relating to true crime, history (cultural, social, and natural) and theology/cults, but not only these topics. I also like to build jigsaw puzzles, play board games, studio paleontology and play a lot on my Switch. The rest of my time is taken up looking after the house and our pets, etc.
There are many pages on this blog that will tell you even more about who I am –specifically, the F.A.Q., My Interests, and the multiple “lists” pages such as my Anime List, my Book List, and my Game List. You’re welcome to explore them!
🌈 About My Blog and Portfolio 🌈
On this website you can find everything regarding my content –all of my art galleries and my books, but also my personal side in the form of my blog.
I created my blog mostly for myself. It sees few visitors, but it brings me a lot of happiness and satisfaction to work on it. Though it may sound odd, I consider myself the primary audience of my blog and I write to make myself happy first. I also write for my family’s enjoyment since a lot of it is our shared experiences.
This blog is my world and my life in one place. It contains years worth of my life story (though for the sake of preserving my sanity as far as digging up stuff to repost, most of it is from after I met my husband, Christopher). On the left sidebar, you will find a long, meticulous list of categories and tags, which you can use to find almost anything I’ve posted here.
🌈 Content Warning For My Blog 🌈
I’ve created a Content/Trigger Warning page for my blog, which you may find especially handy if you come from a place where warnings for everything are part of the culture, such as Tumblr or Mastodon. Because my blog doesn’t have such stringent warnings everywhere, I’ve tried to write a guide for what you may come across while visiting, and how it may be tagged/given prior warning of, if at all.
🌈 Contacting Me / Online Presence 🌈
ALL COMMISSIONS ARE PERMANENTLY CLOSED
I’m kind of all over the place online. 😅 If you hover over the “ELSEWHERE” section of my menu, you will find links to my other profiles/accounts/etc.
