ABOUT T.B. HARPER

Icon Hello! I'm Blythe, also known as "Noct". I'm a Non-Binary (they/them) Filipino-American artist who likes to tell stories through comics. After graduating from The Evergreen State College in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts, I've been living and working in Washington as a full-time freelance artist and designer.

My biggest influence in art was video games, namely "Jak and Daxter", as the keystone for my artistic ambitions because I loved character design and the concept art you unlocked as you progressed through the game, but manga has been my main style of influence ever since. I also love to design websites, and it became my full-time job when I was going through college but nowadays I do it on a smaller scale, experimenting with the new technology that's been rapidly developing throughout the years.

Other things about me? Well, I love iced coffee, exploring urban complexes, watching miniature food videos, watching youtube gamers play the more scary games for me, window-shopping at patisseries, looking at fancy pastries, and collecting any miniature erasers that look like them.
