About Millie

I’m a writer and artist from Toronto. I draw your dark side at Creepify Me and also doodle a webcomic called SORROWBACON. I use this blog and my YouTube channel to document what I learned about writing, illustrating, and random thoughts about the creative process.

I graduated with an Honors Business Administration degree from Western University and put my creative pursuits on hold to work in the business field. In 2016, I realized that I couldn’t be happy unless I was doing what I truly loved, so I threw myself completely into what used to be my hobbies and have been challenging myself to grow as a writer and artist ever since.

Lots more learnings to come. Thanks for coming on the journey!

    I find this particular image haunting in such an intriguing way. I want to know more, see more. I love the use of black and white, as well as positive and negative space. The girl in the background is almost like a comic relief; giving the piece a humorous appeal. I look forward to seeing more work by you.

    Thank you for visiting Paper, Mud and Me. Glad you liked that last chapter from “The Nurse.” You will understand her a lot better if you read the book from Chapter 1.
    Don’t give up on either of your dreams or art and writing. I wish you all the best.

    Hi Millie, I hope you’re well. I’d like to congratulate you on your skill with verse. I usually find poetry a bit opaque or too personalised to really connect with, but there’s something about you that really works for me. Bravo!

    I tried to contact you 20 years ago
    but you wasn’t here.
    The day after tomorrow I found you
    but I was gone away.
    For now one thing to say:
    nice to know you anywhere out there.

    Hello Millie. I am thinking about writing, because mine sucks. In fact, I cannot stand my own. I am working mentally, to a more expressive type of conversation. This is why, I am looking at literally devices and expressions. Good work Miss Millie (I am assuming) 🙂
