Rin Venieris is a Seattle-based artist with a longstanding love affair with all things geek and nerd who spent most of her formative years swooning over superhero cartoons and comic books. She is best-known for not being very known at all, and if it is an art or a craft or a cool new TV show she has probably tried it. If not, you should tell her about it so she can.
