Veronica Shticks Anderson has been turning everyone she knows into stick people figures since she was in her early teens. This book showcases her progression, from sketchy, private hand-drawn cartoons to the final ellegant, stylized figures that gave birth to the "Shticks" idea.
Creator of "Shticks," Veronica Anderson worked for years as an interpreter and translator and has developed a keen sense for conveying feelings, ideas and even intentions. In her early teens she started cartooning about things that happened to her, family and friends but they started out as your regular stick people cartoons. "People loved that I drew things that happened, or my drummed up interpretation of what happened. The more I drew the more people liked my cartoons and the more connected I felt to people." She explains. "I started giving my stick people better quality definition, my lines started getting more stylized and I did flesh the sticks out a bit more for better conveyance of the human body expression." Veronica has a background in diplomacy, negotiation and marketing. She lives in Pennsylvania with her family.
