My name is Melanie Tikhonova ( also known as Melana Mobes). I was born in LA, California and grew up in Manila, Philippines. All my life I've been an energetic and curious individual who has always loved to tell stories. Whether it be through a drawing, a conversation or happy mess in my sketchbook, I've always wanted to entertain people. Currently I am pursuing my love for drawing and storytelling at Sheridan college. Each day I hope to entertain and inspire others, the way they have done for me.
