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 disabilities) and the hows to get on with life while living life as a self-employed artist.

My latest blog posts.

my story.

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.
