I'm a Nicole, an artist, and a Canadian. I am also a new member of your fantastic group and very much looking forward to contributing and to seeing your fabulous works in person.
Mostly, I work in markers (Promarkers, Copics and Sharpies). Don't worry! I will be taking care to use pencil until the proportions are right and, of course, I will protect the drawings from marker bleed-through. If you would like to take a look at my work, google 'littleoutrage'. The first hit should be my flickr page. I have a few different styles but only one which is even remotely popular... I'll be using that one if I can manage it.
It's a real honour (that's Canadian spelling, not incompetence) to be a part of this group. I'll do my best not to disappoint.
