About Amanda



Hey people!I am Amanda, a 32 years old illustrator who really enjoys comics, beer and adorable animals. I studied Illustration at Ballyfermot College of Further Education hoping to be a professional illustrator, if that’s even a thing. Oh yeah, I also work as a professional illustrator so if you want to hire me please get in touch and we can have a chat about it.

I specialized in cartoons and comics (obviously) (on a second though, not that obviously…) and in February of 2011 I wrote a comic about PMS (kinda silly, I have to say) and posted on 9gag. Then a lot of people liked it and it reached front page and that’s when I thought it was about time to get things going officially out of my drawer. So I started posting every Monday an the thing got big (that’s what she said) and nowadays I can say Exploding Comics is my main thing.

I like Indian food, walks on park, playing role-playing games and video-games and board games and practically anything that you can play that doesn’t involve a ball. I love cold weather, movies and I get the feeling that I’m getting old, since every time I go out to get wasted I stay in bed suffering for two days in a row.

I love colored hair and piercings, rock and roll and classical music. I hate with a passion homophobic people and back pain. I love traveling and hate drawing with messy stuff like charcoal.

My work tools are Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai, a Cintiq 13” and a Lenovo that is doing a pretty job processing several stuff at the same time.

Well, if you need anything you can mail me at amanda@explodingcomics.com or call me at our Facebook page facebook.com/explodingcomics or you can just comment on any comic and you should get your answer as soon as possible!
