Welcome, welcome! So you want to know what this all is. Well, my name is April, not Miaka. Miaka is just my online personality. I am a freelance animator and 3D designer. I specialize in 3D worlds, more specifically IMVU. I have visited others, but never got into any of them. I am in my mid-30s and have two incredible boys. This site is meant to bring all of my creative endeavors to one location as well as an outlet for me to discuss my personal struggles with cancer and life in general. In my opinion, there is nothing more therapeutic than talking openly about your problems. Whether or not people read it, doesn't matter.


A little bit of back history. I was a young budding animation student at the University of Wisconsin with an entrepreneurial spirit. What's girl to do to make some money around here? Cue in Cafepress.com. I made some T-shirt designs and made a couple bucks, but you can't make a living off of that. I had been working long hours on my final project animation, Sin Angel. I had a great story for it, but lacked the required time and patience to continue animating it after my graduation....so I decided to start a webcomic. Now I'm no writer and filling in the details and nuances of a story was not my forte. Bring in my good buddy from the north, Curtis. Now this guy has talent. He became my writer and Sin Angel the Webcomic was born.....and quickly died...cause I had a baby. I've tried resurrecting the comic a few times, but unfortunately, TIME was not on my side. I had found a new love (and Curtis is probably kicking himself for introducing me) with IMVU. Why? Because I was finally making money! It is a dream come true to find something that YOU ENJOY and can DO AT HOME and make money with it. I never said I made a lot of money. Being a work from home mom of an attention loving kid took care of that, but I made enough to actually be able to stay at home. I still worked a part-time job, but no babysitter was necessary. :D I did plan on getting back to my webcomic after my son started Kindergarten....but, of course, I had another kid. I guess I have to wait a few more years. Forgive me, Curtis.
