Your name: Ashley Rose


Tell us a little about yourself: That I am awesome, my life is art and DC Comics.


What hobbies do you enjoy other than drawing? My other hobbies- reading, enjoying fantastic motion pictures(movies), and if watching Doctor Who is not considered a hobby, then cross that out.


Favorite comic book character? There are so many characters to choose from. I will list mine in order:
1) Green Lantern
2) Batman
3)The Flash and also the Rouges- mainly Captain Cold


What inspired you to begin drawing? I have always been drawing and there was a time when I honestly gave up on art. I am a big fan of comics and one day I purchased, Green Lantern-the new 52 graphic novel, “The End” which is the 3rd one. I kept reading the end over and over again, then I saw the farewell letter from Geoff Johns. That night I drew Green Lantern for the first time and I went to art school.


Favorite comic artist? Once again so many:
1) Neal Adams- Because I can not name one cover I disliked from him.
2) Jim Lee- He’s just the best today
3)Todd McFarlane- I admire his confidence and Spawn is fantastic.
4)Douglas “Doug” Mahnke -his art work inspires me everyday


Favorite comic writer? Geoff Johns and Brian Azzarello
