Writing Profile Picture of Me

hey, i’m Roxanne Adupe.

freelance artist and occasional writer

I am the artist behind June Sketches. I create character designs mostly but am branching out designing logos and event invites as well creating my own standalone stories. Instagram is my main social media platform and can be found lurking around there.

My current passion projects consist of a webcomic in the works and a New Adult Genre novel in the process of editing.

I’m accepting new clients through the rest of the year. Please drop me a line and we’ll get started with your next project!

I often post works in progress and finished pieces on Instagram on a regular basis.


Do you like the art that I make and want to support the journey? Consider buying me ko-fi. Ko-Fi is a one-time payment of $3.


Want a longer commitment than ko-fi? What about becoming a dearie! The lowest tier available is a $.

how to continue making art even when consumed by fear

pardon my eraser shavings

Hey dearies, the gallery and blog posts are currently inaccessible. Due to a sudden site crash, many of my posts were lost into the abyss of 0s and 1s.

listening to Georgiana.

“A flower lives a fragile life, poison it and it will die. I was a white rose.”

Georgiana Mendoza is tired of lying about everything wrong with her life. For once, she’d like to say, “I’m not okay,” but she’s not sure if it’s okay to admit how horribly awry her life has turned out. So, she runs to the only Father to ever listen to her. In a foreign land where she knows no one and no one knows her, she hopes to tell the truth, to cry, to shout, and to finally breathe.

This is a story about depression and anxieties. It’s about love. It’s about being hurt, hurting others and seeking forgiveness. It’s not religious and it’s not not religious.
