Howdy! 🤠

I'm Erin Manale.

 

Aside from being the social media manager for my dog child, my full-time job is being an Art Director. I like it a lot!

 

Other things about me... I'm from Houston, Texas, but I live in Austin, Texas. (Hook 'em!) I like to pretend I can speak Italian and play the guitar.

 

I don't really love blueberry muffins that much but for some reason I've found a hobby in searching for the best blueberry muffins around town and ranking them on a letter scale. (The current record holder is Quack's bakery... but they better watch out because I'm always looking for new match-ups) 

I love all things art. Animation, illustration, sculpting, drawing, painting.... and don't think I forgot about directing. If you want to chat about any of the aforementioned or unmentioned, feel free to....
