About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Review: My Hero Academia: Smash!! Vol. 4

My Hero Academia: Smash is a series intent on retelling the original series that we love so much (My Hero Academia, in case that wasn’t painfully obvious), but with a more…humorous twist. If you haven’t read the original series, a lot of what happens here probably won’t make a lot of sense. Continue reading
