Miranda and Jaelin Protesting by EclecticNinja
Miranda and Jaelin Protesting
Haven't been able to make it down to the protests because of work but I definitely plan on making it to the Million March NYC. In the meantime, as an artist who believes in social justice, I think it's important to at least make an art piece where my characters are protesting.

Valencia Valdez by EclecticNinja
Valencia Valdez

Valencia "The Anaconda"  Valdez

Age: 19

DOB: March 23rd 1991

From: Jersey City, New Jersey

Style: Snake Style Kung Fu and Wrestling 

 

  Valencia was born into a struggling working-class community in Jersey City. Her parents immigrated from Argentina to escape poverty. She was sent to Argentina to live with her grandparents while her family dealt with some issues. When she was four, she experienced her beast-gene mutation after having contact with snakes while site-seeing in the tropics. Valencia exhibited reclusive behavior and dangerous strength. Upon returning to Jersey, her parents had divorced and she was forced to get a job during high school to help support her family. She often got into fights at school and her family had gotten multiple law suits due to the damage Valencia had done to her schoolmates. After visiting a clinic, a doctor diagnosed her as a Man-Beast and told her family that her violent behavior and strength wasn't her fault, urging the courts to lighten her punishment. In meantime, Valencia had been taking Kung-Fu classes with a family friend and joined the wrestling team in high school. When a member of the wrestling team told her that she won money from amateur MMA fights, she decided to pursue MMA as well. She won all of her bouts via chokehold submission leaving with a 10-0 record. When she nearly hospitalized half of her opponents, a sponsor from Monster Fist who happened to be watching her last match agreed to be her sponsor and sign her up to be a competitor. Her main goal with Monster Fist is to support her family and help them out of poverty. 

Facts: 

Although her Man-Beast diagnosis excused her from her violent behavior at school, Valencia is quite rebellious and is outcast by her classmates. 
Valencia is an avid hardcore metal fan.

So, I finally found a job (or 2). I am working on Saturdays as a TA for the arts organization I worked at over the summer and I am also working as a TA at a new organization that just recently hired me. That job is Mon-Friday, 3 hours a day. They also have me doing office work here and there so I am basically doing similar work to my work-study job during school.
Also, I started talking to this girl and I really like her so far and we are now casually dating. Nothing serious yet but we've been talking and hanging out and getting to know each other. I guess we'll see where this goes.
I am still pretty broke despite having a job. I still have to pay off my credit card bill, I have to give my mom money for bills, build up my savings and now that I have a learner's permit, I need to pay for driver's ed classes once I have the money. Also, I have student loans to start paying off in January. So not looking forward to that...
I am also freelancing so I haven't had much time to work on my own art so that sucks but I have at least been making money from that while I was unemployed. 
I really hope that things keep getting better, though I am always prepared for things to go wrong or not how I planned. 
Aaliyah Hassan by EclecticNinja
Aaliyah Hassan

Aaliyah "The Lioness" Hassan

Age: 20

DOB: August 11th, 1990

From: Brooklyn, New York

Style: Boxing and Jiu Jitsu 

   Aaliyah was born into a Muslim community in Brooklyn. Ever since she was young, she knew that she was different. Especially after her beast-gene mutation began after coming into contact with lion fur that was left on the gloves of her aunt who is a zoologist when she was five. She began exhibiting the usual symptoms of being a Man-Beast, including reclusive behavior, aggression, unusual diet cravings and selective mutism. Aaliyah was always physically competitive but it increased after the mutation. When her aunt heard about the Man-Beast gene being researched at her alma mater, she suspected that Aaliyah might have the gene and after a doctor's visit, it was confirmed. Although her father disapproved of it, her mother and her aunt agreed that she should take martial arts classes and join sports teams at school to give her an outlet for her aggressive attitude. She excelled at track and became a black belt at the age of eleven. After watching MMA matches with her brothers, she decided that she wanted to be an MMA fighter when she grew up. In high school, she convinced her mother to let her compete, telling her that professional MMA fighters could make as much as or more money than doctors and lawyers. It took six months to convince her but her mother finally caved in. However, her mother didn't believe that it was appropriate for her to be fighting other girls scantily clad so she refused to attend any of her matches. Her aunt, who is much more supportive, attended most of her matches. By the time she was eighteen, she had a 7-0 record in the Man-Beast Youth MMA circuit. A few months later, her MMA gym agreed to sponsor her and she signed a contract with Monster Fist. 

 Facts:

Although born into a Muslim family and forced to practice Islam, Aaliyah is an athiest and a closeted pansexual. 

Aaliyah is the first female competitor from a Muslim background to be a part of MFMMA. 

Along with being with MFMMA, Aaliyah is also studying to be a nurse at the wishes of her mother.

Not that anyone cares or is going to read this but it's been 5 months since I graduated and I still have yet to find a job. Even if it's just in retail. And then the art supply store that I applied to work at lied to me when they said that they were going to place me at one of their stores. I submitted my portfolio to some animation companies and still haven't heard back. I also submitted a job application twice to a store at the mall in Queens that says that they're hiring and they still haven't called back.

My grandmother AKA my 2nd parent since my father's not involved in my life, died of pancreatic cancer last month. 

Also, my gf of one year and almost 5 months broke up with me via text message and I'm so upset and angry that I don't think I ever want to have anything to do with her ever again. 

So yeah... life sucks right now...

I graduated from Parsons, The New School for Design (Class of 2014)

I'm an illustrator, digital painter, animator and writer. I love story telling and writing about characters that I feel don't get enough representation in all forms of entertainment media. Being an African American lesbian atheist, I never see any characters on TV or in comics or movies that are anything like me.

I self-published a queer teen romance comic book called Jaelin and Miranda, which can be bought here:

I have a 6 page prequel to my story that can be read on my FB art page
