Hello, I am SHIROASA, a comic artist from Chicago. I have a BS in simulation programming and have been interested in telling stories since I was a child, making little comics about my friends and characters I’d dream up. I didn’t consider art as a possible career until around 2018, when I decided to start becoming serious about improving. In my stories, I like to incorporate dark themes such as dealing with mental illness, gore, and despair alongside lighthearted and cute imagery. In my illustrations I enjoy creating solemn, macabre settings with dramatic lighting.
