Hey Kristen nice meeting u at the akon. Quick question how can I contact your button person?
You can e-mail her at email@example.com. She goes by Starry. She is the best!
you made a manga style drawing of my daughter at the denton mini acon. could you do one from a photo and color it if so how much wold this cost. It’s an idea for a gift for both my daughter and her manga-crazed friend! thanks – marci elston
Hi! I sent you an e-mail with the details.
I read Enchanted #1 and it was very good. I wish I would have bought them all when I was there. I’ll buy them online once I get my new debt card 🙂
Thank you! We sold out of Chapters 1 and 2. I will restock in time for AnimeFest as well. You can order online at comixpress.com. Just a note though that its print on demand, so it takes about a month or more for them to print it and ship it to you. Thanks for buying my work!
I was wondering, what color are Brooke’s skirt and socks/shoes in Enchanted? I bought Enchanted at AnimeFest 2011 and A-Kon 2012 and I want to cosplay as Brooke at AnineFest 2012. Thanks. 🙂
Eeeeks!! <3 Her skirt and socks are gray. Her sweater is red, and her shoes are red converse sneakers. I can't wait to see it!!! X3
We are a small rural town northwest of Denton and for our March Teen Read this year we are doing manga and anime. We would like an artist to come to teach the teens some anime drawing techniques. Please contact me at 940.482.3455 or the email above if you would be interested in this. Thanks!!
I purchased the Cat Girl comic at the Mini A-Kon in denton and u drew me and my daughter. I love the comic and cant to see ya at the A-Kon in Dallas to purchase the other ones you had!
Thanks for a GREAT JOB in drawing me and my daughter!!
Hi and thank you! I’m really looking forward to A-kon this year! Plus I will have a new chapter of Enchanted at A-kon so its going to be one grand event! I will definitely see you at A-kon. ^_^
I just got done reading every manga page on your site, and I can’t wait to see more. I haven’t found a good place for the picture you drew of me just yet, but I will eventually. I hope your voice acting career goes well and that I see an entry for you over at the “Behind the Voice Actors” website.
Thanks so much! I really liked your duct tape hat. Very creative. =) I hope to be on Behind the Voice Actors as well. Hopefully with enough dedication and practice I will continue to improve. Thanks for checking out my site!
I wanted to thank you for your art. I seen you at Comic Con Tyler. My daughter was very pleased with the drawing you did of her. I purchased one of the large pictures like the one on your business cards. I have had more positive comments than I can remember. It is now proudly framed and hanging in my home.
I’m always more than pleased when I hear that my art has an honored place in somebody’s home (besides just the fridge). I had fun meeting your family!
We would love you to be a part of Helio Con on January 26th, 2014. For more information, go to http://www.helio-con.com or contact the planning committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your time and consideration.
Hi Mr. Dennis,
That sounds like a wonderful event and I would love to be a part of it. I have sent an e-mail to the address you mentioned. Thank you for thinking of me!
I bought “Cat Girl” at A-Kon 25 and my friend and I love it <3
I can't wait to see you at Mini A-Kon this year~
Great work Kristen. I watched the Haganai NEXT episodes last night, and it was a lot of fun hearing a familiar voice in a show. Next I’ll have to watch through Ben-To and wait for the Date A Live episodes to come out.
I can’t wait until you get your first big part. It’ll happen, and it will be very exciting.
Thanks Chris! I’m excited to see where this journey will take me. It’s so much fun and I really enjoy it. I will see you at Project A-Kon! =D
I am looking for an anime artist for the Kimbell Art Museum’s program, Matsuri! A Japanese Celebration on Saturday, June 21, 1:30–3:30 pm. At your earliest convenience, please let me know your interest if you have that date available. Thanks very much, Marilyn 817-332-8451, ext. 297
Hi i cant wait to meet you at the arlington library june 28th!
I’m looking forward to meeting all of you as well! =)
I know you probably don’t have time to reply to this but I was just wondering if you have any tips on creating your own manga and becoming an artist professionally; I’m very serious about getting into the anime/manga world as a career but have no clue where to go or how to get there and any advice would mean the world =^.^=
Thanks for checking out my page! One tip that I give everyone is that to be a comic book artist, you have to draw a comic book. I’m sure you’re reading this and saying, “Well, duh!” but I’ve seen a lot of portfolios of comic artists over the years that didn’t have a single page of comics in it. Pin ups are fun to draw, but telling a story with panels is a lot different than drawing a pretty picture. A great book that I recommend is “Draw Manga” by Bruce Lewis. It is one of the best manga drawing books I’ve ever read.
Anyway, don’t be afraid to start small. Decide that maybe you’ll make a ten page story. It can be about whatever you want. I like to write my stories first, complete thumbnails, and then do the pencils based off of my already completed thumbnails. Then you can ink or tone those (I use Manga Studio EX 5) or just ink it with some Micron pens. I use Ka-Blam to print my books because they are Print on Demand and don’t require a minimum order amount. Then you buy a table at an upcoming convention and start selling your wares.
Really though, just completing a comic is a step in the right direction. Every page you draw will help you practice and become better, so don’t give up! I hope that helps!
Thanks so much, that did help! And I’ll definitely check out that book! 🙂
I am so proud of you. I still have your enchanted comic you autographed for my son when you worked at Mothers.
Wow that was a long time ago! I hope you’re both doing well! ^_^
How many books did you print for your first convention? What was the next step after that?
Hi! I printed 60 copies for our first convention. We didn’t sell but about 25 or 30, so I had a little stock left over for the next con. After that we would always reorder so we would have at least 50 comics on hand. I usually did this with the money that we made from sales. Once you get a little bit of a fan base going you can sell prints and buttons with your comic characters on them and get a little extra income that way.
someone said to me that you teach people how to draw anime if so can you tell me when and where your next drawing classes are
I usually host a drawing panel at cons, and I’ll be at Mini A-Kon in February in Denton. It’s free to get in. =)
ok thank for letting me konw oh and I like your book enchanted my favorite character is rain oh if its ok may I ask whats your favorite character in your book enchanted

Hi Jennie! It depends on the date as my summer books up pretty fast (for very similar programs!) but e-mail me at email@example.com and I’ll see what I can do!
I had to say about this, but you are very smart, natural, cute and also a beautiful girl~!! <3
You are very talent, good voice actor, and of course, I really love your drawing too, so keep it great job in the near future Miss Kirsten~! 😉
To wishful and love you too~! 🙂 Cheers~!!
Oh my goodness, thank you so much!
Hi Kristen. Loving your artwork so far. 🙂 I hope some of the conventions in ohio will invite you over someday. Would love to meet you.
Some of our students are looking for Manga lessons in Denton. Are you teaching any classes this fall, or are you looking for a place to offer lessons?
I often teach classes at local libraries which are usually free to attendees, and I usually give panels on drawing when I attend conventions. If you are interested in having me coming to your location to teach a class, you can e-mail me at kriscomics (at) gmail.com and I will be happy to e-mail you my rate. =)
My daughter is interested in Anima art and has to do an interview of an artist for a school project. I was wondering if there is anyway for her to contact you other than email so she can conduct her interview. If there is no other way may she email you her questions for a response? Thank you for your time
Sure, she can either e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a message on my public Facebook page. She can write the questions and I am happy to write a response. I hope that helps!
Where have you been all my life,
I love Cats and Cat Girls (it is Kind of my Waifu)
but i can only find Storys that are echi or more …
i always wanted a Story with a normal cat Girl with a normal live doing normal stuff
and your story is exactly that,
the only thing that bothers me is that it is so short TT^TT
but beside that it is a great Story (＾• ω •＾)
I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! Thanks for stopping by!
Very cool! Huge fan of RWBY right here and I loved your work in ReLife!
Looking forward to hearing more of you in the future, Kris!
Thank you so much!! <3
Do you plan on getting into video games as well or do you already do them and I’m just stupid?
I’ve done a few, such as 88 Heroes for PS4, or additional voices for some indie games. But I’d always like to do more! =)
Hi Kristen, I am a game developer, I was wondering if I could use one of your sprite characters, I don’t know the name of your sprite character, I saw it on Deviant art..she has light brown hair, she has a pony tail hairstyle with a purple ribbon matching with her purple shirt, she has white earrings and I can’t tell if she has very light green eyes or gray eyes. I wanna ask you permission first before I use it. contact me if you can 🙂
I apologize for taking so long to get back to you, somehow this comment has been marked as spam by WordPress. Unfortunately I am going to have to say no. I would suggest actually hiring a sprite artist, there are many quality artists for hire in the deviant art forums. Not only will you be able to get a character tailored specifically to your game, you can get several characters so all of the art will match. I hope that helps and best of luck on your venture!
This was so adorable! It made my day. I hope you continue to write and draw for all of your adoring fans. You can now add me to that list.
Dear Ms McGuire,
I thought the Fighter keychain you tweeted about was very good. I’m not on twitter, so I please reblog the picture on tumblr, unedited of course, with a link to the original post?
Thank you for playing a role I one of my personal favorite Anime that has dropped. I loved the premiere of Ruri and you nailed her scenes especially meeting Senku. I hope to catch you at one the 2020 conventions!
This brought a smile to my face today! Thank you so much for creating and sharing this! It’s so cute and so well made!
This is so cute please keep it going you could even post it on webtoons or web comic’s
I liked how you voiced Cleveland in the Azur Lane Anime but more people disliked the English dub because of a lot of reasons. It’s so lonely liking English dub Anime. I can’t say it out loud because a lot of people will hate me and my life would be over. I feel so lonely liking the English dub of Azur Lane. I’ve been keeping this a secret from everyone because I feel like there is no one in the Azur Lane community to trust at all. I feel like I will always be lonely liking English dub Anime and with no one to trust at all. This is pretty much what I have to say here.
