Muffia Smith
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I began as a self-taught artist since the age of seven, usually drawing what I saw and reading tons of books and websites; and then I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art from Hendrix College. I am a gamer, a cartoonist, a fantasizer, a geek, and an explorer. My dream job would be either a concept designer artist for animation or videogame companies or self-employed freelance cartoonist, illustrator, photographer, etc. Dream job would be at Pixar or Valve. Willing to do comissions; however, there are restrictions on subject matter. Contact via e-mail, private message, or leave a comment (^_^)v.

The story behind the Muffia: first of all, get the nasty definition of the word 'muff' out of your head!! My nickname derives from the original definition of the word 'muff': an open-ended cylinder of fur or cloth used for keeping hands warm, one hand going in at each end. My friends gave it to me because I would constantly cross my hands into my sleeves....then, later I heard the slang term for it and decided to add an "ia" at the end to sound more like a name.

Current Residence: U.S.
Favourite genre of music: depends on the song
Favourite style of art: cartoons, manga, and calligraphy (both western and eastern)
Operating System: Windows 7
Favourite cartoon character: Luigi
Personal Quote: "Only love can leave such a mark...Only love can heal such a scar." -- U2
Interests
  • Playing: Fallout 3 GOTY Edition, TF2
  • Eating: Walnut Brownie
  • Drinking: Peppermint Tea
If you have been pondering as to where Muffina and her friends have been, it is because I have been working on my first ever solo art show! I am very nervous but mostly excited. My anxiety was through the roof (and through the atmosphere reaching all the way to Mars) earlier, but with help from my father who is a woodworker, we have managed to make all the frames ourselves. I have also been busy working on the promoting side and the business side.

I am working on the next comic which is based off my experience in XCOM 2 and the outline to another comic which is based off a discussion between Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch. Course, whenever I hear the word "overwatch", I immediately think of an XCOM soldier waiting for any sudden enemy movements. How many hours have I put into the XCOM games? According to Steam, I have played a combine total of 197 hours of both XCOM: Enemy Unknown\Enemy Within and XCOM 2.

Well, back to work.
