Hey Paige, tell us about your work!

I draw relatable comics through the eyes of an introverted, cozy-lovin' character named pudge. Pudge is my alter ego - I love to share simple, sweet and silly moments through her!

How did you get started?

Ellopudge was born while I was working at a dead-end job a few years ago. What started out as random doodles and sketches on sticky notes quickly grew into a hobby and then into a small business/passion project.

Where do you find inspiration?

I find inspiration through everyday life. Getting cozy on the couch with my pup, sharing coffee with my partner, or even going through a tough mental day - these are all moments I share through doodles and how I connect with my followers.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

To value being present and in the moment as much as possible. I would also love to tell my younger self to be confident in what I like.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

Before ellopudge, I worked in healthcare! I learned more in my years in the medical field about communication and working with people then all the other jobs I've had.
