Artwork[edit]

Michele states that "My work has a definite Anime slant to it, with big eyes and wild hair. Most people would describe my art by saying "Oh, it's sooo CUTE!""[1] However, her art has been criticized for being too repetitious, with the faces of many characters being remarkably similar to one another.
