name is Natasha Withers and I'm a freelance illustrator,
animator, and comic artist based in South Florida. I majored
in Multimedia Studies at Florida Atlantic University, which
allowed me to explore and develop skills in various mediums of
storytelling through art and animation.
I grew up drawing, doodling, sketching and cartooning through
my love of cartoons, comics, video games and books. I would
daydream about characters and draw them and come up with
stories for them in my head. Even though I went to school
focusing on a creative field, I'm a self-taught artist at
heart and I continue to learn and develop my craft everyday
and with every project.
I stand for representing, imagining and dreaming. I believe in
representing diversity and telling stories about varying kinds
of people, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, ability, and
body type. I believe in nurturing the imagination and letting
creativity thrive in all areas of life. I believe in
encouraging the dreams of others, no matter their age, but
especially in young people; letting them know that they can do
incredible things, that they can change the world, and that
with perseverance their goals can one day become reality.
I want my work to encourage these ideals in others: accepting
others who are different from ourselves, nurturing the
imagination to let creativity grow, and encouraging dreams so
they have a better chance at coming true. Most importantly
however I want to tell stories that inspire others. The same
way art inspired me when I was growing up.
