Virginia Shields' Profile

About

Hi there! I'm Virginia. I hail from Pittsburgh, where I work as a freelance illustrator and comics artist. I am self taught and draw everything on paper.

Ever since I was a kid, I loved to tell stories and draw pictures. I was about 5 when I put the two together and started drawing comic strips about my dog. Making comics has always been my passion, but it wasn't until I lost my job (as an executive assistant at a law firm) in 2011 that I started self-publishing my work. Now I split my time between making comics and working part time for a lovely little non-profit. I plan to make a real graphic novel in the future and continue to publish funny cartoons.
