My name is Melissa, or "nalem" which I prefer to go 
by online. I'm a freelance cartoonist/animator.
Originally from New York City, I moved out west
in 2006 and received my BFA from Thomas More College in Spring 2011.Now, I spend my free time drawing to my heart's content.
I'm available for hire all year round for comics, cartoons, animation, illustrations, storyboarding, and general art projects.

Use common sense on what’s not appropriate.

the-establishment asked:

who is spanio?, also will roemer become another main character (along with zeppelin and the gang)

Spanio says:
I am a sentient writing monster that must wear a hat to keep my brains from spilling out. Or I am shamed by baldness.

Roemer’s fate is still unknown, but perhaps It is important to look after her, should she need a hand in these dire times.

itisntrocketscience asked:

Your comic stuff is really great! This has proooooobably been asked already, but how did you decide on the word "volant" for your fliers?

Hey hey, thank you!

And no it has not! 

I started using the word “volant” because I wanted a word that meant “capable of flight.” I looked it up and discovered it. I had never heard of the word before that. It was originally used it as a way Austerlitz referred to Zeppelin’s powers without having to say “flying powers” each time. Spanio suggested Volant should be the name of the people capable of flight, so there it stayed!

Bleh. It has not been a good week.For the last few days, I’ve been having some really annoying gall bladder issues, which has left me weak, exhausted, and of course, in lots of pain.This isn’t even everything that’s made this week so sour! Let’s just say you know it’s a bad week when talks of surgery is the highlight. I know I’ve been a bad comic artist and didn’t update AGAIN today, but a new Lighter than Heir will be up soon, honest! I just need to sleep for like a month. [nah, the new comic should be up today, the rough sketches are done]
