I grew up as an adventurous little kid, always playing imaginary stories with friends and even myself. These weren't just one-day or simple stories, we made Chapters of a story! Having to stop because having to go home or is time for class we would have to pick up tommorow!
Growing up, I had a SNES especially with "Link to the Past", and I noticed I took elements from the games I played into the stories we played.
Moving to 2008 I drew alot and I got better over time. Eventually I made some characters I kept drawing in different outfits, designs, and situations. I soon had 4 Main characters each with backstorys and characteristics. Like the stories I played when I was little I also based these guys (and girls) on video games and somewhat of myself, which one became Mariko Okuri.
I have been watching Let's Players for years now; ProtonJon, Chuggaaconroy, and so on. I enjoy the humor and informative commentary they do and I was the same way with friends and even in my mind when playing games. That's when I decided to become one. I use my drawing skills, gaming abilities, story making, and creativity to make something for other peoples pleasure whether it be from humor, imagery, or anything.
