For those who were curious, YES! I am still alive.  I've been taking a bit of a hiatus from drawing a lot of new works, scanning, and posting them since the passing of my mother in September of 2015. I lost a lot of my drive around then.  But slowly, my drawing skills are coming back...but it's taking time unfortunately.  Please hang in there! More art IS coming! (I feel kinda vulnerable telling you guys this :S)

Miko Peru
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
PROFESSION: Illustrator, chaos maker, resident go-to person for random medical/forensic/hentai facts, and ghost (as I am hard to track down most of the time)

ACADEMIA: Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Biological Anthropology; Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art.

OTHER NOTES ABOUT ME: I'm multiethnic and multicultural...and tragically allergic to caffeine. I am equally right and left brained- which supposedly makes me creative and yet methodical. I'm a sculpture of scars (I'm accident prone as well) and experiences (the good, the bad, and the ugly)...a specimen balanced somewhere between the real and surreal ( I could not have a normal life if I tried). I have a bad habit of appearing at random...and disappearing at random...I'm a big geek. I spend too much time on the internet, drawing, or playing video games (I swear, it's all in the name of "research"). I'm fairly social and like making new friends so if you feel like asking me questions or whatnot, please feel free to send them. I sleep when I need to, play when I can, and try to experience life to it's fullest extent. I was a big nerd in high school, was nerdy in college, still nerdy now.

What kind of artist am I? I mess with a little bit of everything (jack of all trades and master of none). I tend to dislike my work or merely tolerate it at best (I usually know where I could've done something different for better or worse but like a cat who fell off a chair, I try to pull it off as deliberate). If you catch me in public, you'll find out I carry about 15 to 20 pens/pencils in my purse and a notebook which often has doodles, grocery lists, sketches of ideas (good, bad, and ugly), probably something pornographic/violent/or in poor taste.

Current Residence: Desert Wasteland Bunker
Favourite genre of music: industrial, goth, electro, some opera/soundtrack/classical
Favourite style of art: sketchy concept art
Operating System: PC
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Personal Quote: It's not so much confidence as it is a complete lack of shame.

Yes!  Yes, I am!  I've been taking time off from doing much new art, scanning or posting them...life got kinda rough after this past summer. My mom passed away in September and I kinda lost my drive. It's slowly coming back but I've been slow about it.
