I’m Jena! I currently live in Los Angeles, California. I was born in Seattle Washington, then got my BFA in Animation at California College of the Arts in Oakland California. I was always the kid who doodled through all my classes and I was thrilled to go to CCA where I learned how to make a career out of compulsive doodling.
I grew up on comics and cartoons, and definitely a fan of all works Matt Groening. Especially Futurama, which I admired for how humor was carried through the entire show yet the narrative still packed an emotional punch to make you genuinely care about the story and characters. Other of my big time inspirations are Bryan Konietzko, Sylvain Chomet, Satoshi Kon, and Hayao Miyazaki.
In addition to drawing I love bothering my cats, bikes, astrology, and catching up on Game Of Thrones.
