About the artist
Jonnalyn Cabigting aka baka_usagi’s earliest memories of her childhood will never be completed without her sitting on the floor, while holding crayons and doodling”stickman versions” of Disney princesses and princes. She claims that drawing anything and everything (on the back of your notebook when the class gets boring) enhances your art skills. In school, she usually drew hand-made mangas for her friends and occasionally joined poster making contests. She also participated in stage and classroom decorations and became a member of her primary and secondary school’s journalism club as an editorial cartoonist.
Though she did not pursue this talent in college, she would often find time to improve her skill in drawing thanks to Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop.
Today, she is an accounting staff in Pasig and a freelance writer and illustrator at Wattpad.
