I'm Jennifer Reuter (or Jen is fine too) and I'm a German-born, half-Polish, Melbourne-raised illustrator, comic-artist and story-teller. With a healthy side dose fascination for psychology, social design and problem-solving.
Graduating from Communication Design at Melbourne's RMIT in 2015, I learned that to communicate a message effectively, the whole project and all the mediums it uses need to be balanced out.
This is familiar for me in my own craft; in comics and illustration, I have to juggle typography, story writing, pacing, as well as backgrounds and characters. As a freelancer, I have juggle between drawing, organising what to draw, networkingm and taking much-needed breaks. Balancing webcomics, watching animation series, Steam games, strumming on guitar or reading books is hard, right?
Just as it takes two (or more) languages in order to translate, likewise it takes more than one skill to plan and create coherent projects, alone, or in a group. I guess you could call me a kind of 'discipline translator'.
Hence why I have a dragon as a mascot (other than my initials J.A.R making an amusing pun). They are chimeras of multiple components too.
Do I really need
to explain this one?

No, I don't just want to tell people to get work done. Heh.
A bit of a fiddle:
