I am Carmen. I'm 17 and I love to trade my art for other services, it is a great way to get to meet new people and experience and gain new things. I have been drawing for years now, and I'd love to make comic books one day, mostly for my own enjoyment and some of my friends. I enjoy using watercolor and markers as a medium and I mostly like drawing in my sketchbook more than doing finalized pieces. Soon I will be moving to Arizona so I can further my art career and gain new opportunities that I won't be able to gain while living in a small town. Tucson is known for its large art community, having numerous art galleries you can go to, many comic book stores, and the record stores are amazing as well. The people there are very diverse and very creative, the down town of Tucson is filled with wonderful and colorful murals of all sorts of things. Tucson is a very inspiring place for artists like myself. Hopefully with this move I will be able to offer more of my talent to people instead of hoarding what art I have made to myself. I also hope that I will be able to gain more experience and better skills with this move. (If you have any advice on how to handle a large move please let me know!). I also do more than make art, I do some writing of short stories, and I have a large collection of music. Ranging from punk bands to pop bands, I listen to everything and enjoy all of it! I also do some cooking, mostly in Swedish dishes as I am Swedish myself!
