Anzzia: What is an artistic outlook on life?

Alexa: To me, it's to create my own reality and the idea that anything can change at any second and you just have to go with the flow.

Anzzia: What memorable responses have you had to your work?

Alexa: The most memorable ones have been to some of my comics - especially my last one, called "Abyss". It's a short story I've done for a competition called "Silent Manga". The story revolves around a girl who's dealing with anxiety. I got a big response to it because there are so many people out there dealing with the crippling effects of this mental illness. Many of the viewers told me that the story spoke to them on a very personal level. It's always a great feeling to know I can share something relatable, because those people might feel less lonely, knowing there are others out there who understanding what they are going through.

Anzzia: What do you dislike about your work?

Alexa: I feel like I have less and less patience to create detailed artworks, which is something I used to enjoy a lot. I just don't have the time/energy anymore and feel like some of my drawing are becoming more and more flat. I should also make a bigger effort to practice stuff that I'm not so good at instead of staying within my comfort zone.

Anzzia: What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

Alexa: I used to work as a graphic designer for 4 years before landing my studio job. Before that I worked various office jobs.
