I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Now Loving Comics
I was actually not a fan of comics, despite my passion for drawing and painting. Maybe it's because comics don't show us the real appearance of humans, instead they're distortion of what is reality. For me, comics defy and bastardize what is conventional. For an instance, characters have over-sized body parts. They're portrayed with huge eyes and whatsoever. They're exaggerated, I have to say. That's what I didn't like about comics then.
As time passed by, I began to love the defiance of comics to what is typical. I don't know what got into me that says I have to appreciate comics. Maybe it's the child-like individual in me or something. That change in me, started off when someone introduced the Eyesores Facebook App to me. Then just yesterday I stumbled upon another comic artist by the name of Natalie Dee. I've seen some of her works before but I didn't know she was the one who drew them.
Here are some of my comics top picks from them.
