Hey y'all! My name is Mia Shaw, and I am the owner and artist of Black Ink Caricatures.
Just to give y'all a little background about me, I grew up all around the 831 in Northern California. I've been drawing since I was around two, from sketching cartoons on napkins to drawing/selling comic books to my peers. I even drew comic strips for our local newspaper during high school.
What I love about drawing caricatures is the reactions I get from people. I've always been an observant person, and every caricature I draw is a personal challenge to bring my observations out on the page. Plus, I love giving people something they can cherish forever.
I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Human Biology, and I am currently an education PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania.
