About Me



Hello!

♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢♢

I’m Destiny Slater!

Better known as
“Reptonic” & “Slatertoons”

I’m an independent freelancing cartoonist based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Arts & Animation (2018). I am confident in my ability to tell a story through illustrative means.

Currently, I am working on writing my upcoming large graphic novel project, “How Lovely!~” and I hope to have my first publication by next year or earlier. On the side, I work with a variety of clients to help turn their ideas into reality.

My goal is to connect with my clients and others alike to fulfill my dream and passion as an artist.



You are welcome to contact me and we both will warm up!
Have a tea, please! 🍵

Comics



How Lovely!~

This graphic novel project is the current priority. "How Lovely!~" is an epic adventure fantasy comic with a sprinkle of psychology, sociology, and comedy.

A trio, whom each holds extreme life perspectives (optimism, pessimism, and neutral), goes out together to fight against and dismantle a corrupted biotech fashion company while discovering the main character's, Kuro's, mysterious history about the curse that caused his hair to be alive as a snake and can devour rats.

The first chapter is expected to be released next year in 2021.


See You Later, Slater

[ON HITAUS]
A small pet project on the side, it is available on Webtoons.

A silly lighthearted and sometimes educational autobiography webcomic about a clumsy, socially awkward Deaf person, babbling about a variety of incidents. It can be the horror in miscommunication, randomness, geckos, and other mishaps.

• Client may NOT re-sell, edit, alter, claim the commission work as their own, or use this work for profit gain in any way, shape, or form unless the artist transfers copyright to client.
• If the client is selling a character and a piece of my artwork is included, they may not sell artwork along with it, unless the artist was contacted and given permission beforehand.
