where did the idea of moduslotus as an online name come from? by excalibursIt started as a little art company when I curated a large, international art show in 2008 - but as I got busier with my own freelance work, I had to can that and focus on personal projects. So now it's my blog name.
originally my blog's name was Veronica Harmonica - the name my mom used to call me. It's a tad long, haha, although I do like it . Wow, boring much?
How old are you? and... Do you have a idealization or a pattern in the girls that you draw?24. I don't mean to have an idealized girl, but it seems they do tend to come out the same way: pensive, pouty upper lip and usually stuck between being a woman or perpetual girl-hood.
Weird how we repeat ourselves accidentally like that! I need to move on to much more expressive work+ subject matter I guess!

What do you like more about Boston in comparison to New York City? by thrilaNorth End > Little Italy! No joke! Boston is more intimate and I just love the old timey colonial streets and flower boxes! And the seafood is better. But, I do miss me some Manhattan ...

What do you want to be known for? by excalibursBeing a good artist, but more so, a good friend
how did you meet Andy??We worked at the Worcester Art Museum together! After we parted ways, I didn't see him for years while I lived in New York, then we reconnected and fell in love :) Now we work at the museum again together, it's a circle!
