I have synesthesia.
I'm good at traditional illustration.
I have a Fine Art Degree.
I would love to learn how to tattoo.
My name is Lauren Versino.
I don’t have a hometown. I like to learn what makes a place special to the people that live there and let that become a part of me.
I do a million things. I make enamel pins for my Etsy store because I think it's fun. I design t-shirts for my Threadless store because I love making clothes that I think are funny, or mean something more personal to me (or you!), or you! I have a podcast with my best friend where we talk about living in the Midwest that comes out every Wednesday. I have a day job where I am a graphic designer at a marketing agency. I make and do all these things because it's SUPER fun for me.
I really love snakes, alligators, and hearing other people’s stories. Those things interest me so much I’ll be late to appointments to stay and listen to someone or observe a reptile.
I think people who have a talent for something are under no obligation to share it. I put myself out there to say "I’m here, I’m interested,and let's have some fun!" I enjoy being human in that way.
