My name is Carla and I'm a thirtysomething derp who loves anime/manga, drawing, horror movies and pixel art. I have been making websites since 2000 and haven't improved much due to l a z i n e s s. I bought my first domain in 2002 after using homestead and geocities for a couple of years. I've owned personal sites like this one, art sites, blogs, fanlistings, fansites and shrines, on a plethora of domains. I've taken years long breaks. But I always come back to it.
