Suzi's Cover Letter:
Dear Fellow Visionary,
I love to draw and design! I’ve been doing it forever. And I think we all need to think outside of the box. Let’s say there’s a kid’s book about a superhero dog. Then I’ll draw a dog with a cape, but the cape will be 3D and stick out of the cove! Wow!
Let’s say there’s a cocktail book. Why show drinks? That’s so cliché. I’d show a drunk person because that means the cocktails inside the book are so yummy and good! I’ll buy that book!
I don’t have a BA, but I still use adult coloring books, so my skills are still sharp. Like, I am totally inside the lines. Unless I’m going for a “glow” effect, then I’m outside the lines.
Let’s create art together,
I'm just your average girl who wants a kick-ass life and... love! If I could be a superhero, that would be AWESOME! I'm currently a "phone actress" looking for a really cool career. Don't get me wrong-- I love giving a hand to dudes who need someone to chat with. Everybody needs somebody! But, my parents keep telling me I need a respectable job. Sigh.
