AboutHey Everyone! The name's Claudia. IRL, I'm a coffee-addicted amateur cartoonist, bookstore employee and Visual Art major who obsessively collects Ninja Turtles merchandise, manga, and cute things that involve kitties. I am actively pursuing a career in the comics industry and I have about ten years of experience working with children.
I've been on Gaia since 2003, and despite it's many changes and new added features, I'm still happy to be here. :3

I'm most often found bumping in the Chatterbox, playing Booty Grab in the Aquarium forum, lurking at my guilds, Gaia Fishing, wasting my tokens at the Gaia Slots, playing ZOMG!, roleplaying, and hanging out in the Artist Alley. I love art trades! :3
I enjoy literate, lighthearted RPs, and love getting invited to them. I don't like Godmoding, chatspeak in RP threads, or overpowered and unoriginal OCs. I love creativity, a good sense of humor and the occasional OOC silly RP. ^^
And I love cartoons. Oh, do I love cartoons. Especially anime and manga, but I like animation and comics in general. I love to draw! I love to look at pretty artwork. Gift art = <3
I'm recruiting players for my new RP, found here: ~The Battle for Barton: A Gaia Online ZOMG! Based RP~ I'm looking for semi-literate to literate players with a sense of humor and fun, who know a bit about the story of Gaia and who use courtesy when interacting with others.
Please join! I've been wanting to do this idea for awhile. ^^
~Peace, Love, and Chocolate Chip Cookies! <3
P.S. This is Michan's favorite charity! Donate a little if you wanna be on Santa's Nice List. It goes to deserving folks. ^^
