Hello, friends, and welcome to another EarperView! Today we are joined by the extremely talented, super-hilarious, and probably-very-nice-in-person (we have never met) Vic! You may know Vic from her IlluStitch collaborations with Megan or from her super-fucking-rad designs. I’m very partial to the potatoes of Purgatory, but all of them are delightful, really.
My favorite part about doing this series is how amazed I am time and time again with how talented our fandom is. I read Vic’s answers as I was getting ready one morning, and I was almost late for work.

I am so honored to be in this fandom with such a talented, funny, intelligent human, and I hope we get to meet in person someday.

She might be a somewhat unremarkable humanoid who spends most of her days at a desk in a marketing office and most of her nights at a desk at home doing doodles for the interwebs. Continue reading
