hey, this is Roxanne Adupe
Get to know me.
Hey, I’m Roxanne Adupe but you may know me as June of June Sketches.
I’m a 20-something freelance artist, located in California, dabbling in novel and comic writing to expand my horizons. I design characters to logos for business and event invites.
My blog posts and videos encompass the worlds I create and the life that I lead. I am known to discuss the hardships of having depression (and other mental roadblocks) and the hows to get on with life while living life as a self-employed artist.
My latest blog posts.
A Creating Art post wherein I finally tackle the term ‘the wall of suck’ or self-sabotage and discuss my struggles with depression.
I was in doubt and I rode it out all on my own. And maybe that’s the really scary part- the inability to run to someone for help.

the short version.
I was in college for about five complicated years from 2010 to 2015 and dropped out due to depression. For two years I focused mainly on my mental health and self-healing which I now advocate.
