  • Ash Static

    Ash Static spends her days sciencing and every other free moment animating and illustrating. Her work has been showcased at various Philadelphia and San Francisco venues. She is currently working on a few personal and collaborative projects. While she loves sleep, if it somehow became unnecessary so she could get more done in a day, that would be greatly appreciated.
