Filipina comic book artist in Tokyopop manga


Irene Flores (artist)

I'll try to keep this short. I was born and raised in the Philippines. I now reside in California's central coast. Lots of stuff happened in between.

Now that I've caught everyone up on the last 22 years of my life, let's talk about what really matters... like why my self-portrait looks so peeved. Some subconscious manifestation of my frustratration at my artistic inadequacy, perhaps. Or maybe I just thought it looked funny. I dunno, really.

I also have this habit of writing bios in the wee hours of the morning... when I tend to ramble... and am quite incoherent... and use too many ellipses.

I also draw, occasionally.
