SORRY LITTLE SHARKY
What can be said of Sorry Little Sharky?

Well, for starters, SHE SINGLE-HANDEDLY MADE A GIANT COMIC CALLED MISTERGUY full of unnecessary spaceships, harmless murder attempts, and visits to the sun to explain why the character’s world suddenly turns from black and white to COLOR a third of the way into the story.  She came up with the character as soon as she could hold writing utensils and not stab her young self in the head with them...HE SIMPLY REMAINED IN SAID HEAD AND JUST NEVER...SHUT...UP.

Sorry Little Sharky freely admits that she is not *really* a shark, and in fact, finds human flesh thoroughly unpleasant in terms of consumption. However, she IS a professional fine artist/musician who loves art in every form---whether it be writing and singing her own music, drawing comics, painting horror-inspired abstract landscapes, or designing random posters and t-shirts, rest assured if it CAN be done, that I will suddenly STOP WRITING ABOUT MYSELF IN THE THIRD PERSON...and surely try my hands at it.
