6 questions we always ask: Ashley Hay, artist

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be featuring cartoonists who will exhibit at the Minneapolis Indie Xpo, an independent comic book festival happening on November 5-6, 2011, at The Soap Factory. This event is free and open to the public on both days from 10am-5pm. MIX features web cartoonists, self-published cartoonists, boutique publishers, and large publishing houses. Learn more about MIX exhibitors and programs.

Today we have Ashley Hey (who you can also find on Facebook) and this is her bio:
65% human
12% controlled substances
10% kitty
6% vinyl
4% glitter
2% crushed up videogames
1% mini tacos

And these are her answers:

What book(s) are you currently reading?
I am reading the Seven Realms series and am on book three which is called The Gray Wolf Throne.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Who?
Oh of course! Kvothe from The Name of the Wind and Matthew from A Discovery of Witches.

If your favorite author came to Minnesota, who would it be and what bar would you take him/her to?
I would take Patrick Rothfuss to the Happy Gnome.

What was your first favorite book?
I have too many books that I enjoy at different parts in my life. The Outlander series was wonderful. I also love the The Name of the Wind series as well. And there will always be a special place in my heart for the Harry Potter books and The Count of Monte Cristo.

Let’s say Fahrenheit 451 comes to life, which book would you become in order to save it from annihilation?
The Nuremberg Chronicles. You don’t find books like that anymore and it was so important to the history of books, typography, and illustration.

What is one book you haven’t read but want to read before you die?
I want to read the The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I just read The Hobbit and loved it. Tolkien was such an inspiration for so many of the books I read today.
