About me

"OK", "Melancholy", "The Darkness", "a solid 5/10", "Creepy", "Tragic", "Great, but…", these are all terms used to describe Lara Thomson. Other than years of hypocritical complaints regarding the general public, Lara's influences currently include artists Andy Ristaino, David Shrigley and Charles Avery, but she is fickle. When Lara is not drawing she enjoys mindful vandalism, watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and troglocoling. Lara's future goal is to move into space and begin colonisation on another planet. Failing that, she would like to finish her graphic novella about a bowl of cream.
