Hello!

Hot matcha tea cup with heart design on the cup.

Destiny Slater is a self-taught and formally educated artist with a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Arts & Animation, based in Pittsburgh, PA. After diving into the animation and comic industry without much traction, she decided to create her own opportunities by becoming an independent cartoonist, channeling her energy and talent into graphic novels with strong Deaf protagonists, heightening the focus on her stories, messages, and emotions.

 

The genres that inspire her work and artistic style range from alternative future and supernaturalism to thriller, action, and fantasy, and even include disciples of philosophy and racing.

 

In her free time, she takes care of her three geckos

(Atom, Scooter, and Lava), watches anime, reads, draws, cooks, visits cafes, admires insects, listens to electronic/metal songs, and bouldering with friends.

 

She goes with the flow in her life and wants to express the worlds and universes that reside inside of her head into great stories conveyed by her artwork.
