Auraboo, born 1988, is a queer author, illustrator and comic artist from Vantaa, Finland, whose first love – fantasy – inspires her to this day. She writes and draws mainly speculative fiction with LGBT+ characters and themes.
She lives with her wife and multiple house plants, works in the game industry during the day, writes her debut novel, as well as draws and paints all manner of things related to her fictional worlds. When she’s not lost in her inner world, she spends her time outdoors in the nature, drinks too much black tea, and studies languages.

You can find me in the following places:
Please note that I do not use any other social platforms at the moment.
2023: I use Ames Pro for my comics, both in Finnish and English.
2016 – 2022: I used CC Wild Words for my English comics, and Anime Ace 2.0 for my Finnish comics. I am in the process of updating all my old comics to use Ames Pro instead and intend to have them all updated by the end of 2023.
I use many different tools for my illustrations, but my most important tools are the brush pen, fineliners, watercolours and colour inks. I draw on many different paper brands, but my favourite for illustrations is Bockingford 300 gram hot-pressed watercolour paper.
I write on my laptop using LibreOffice, but also in my phone’s notes or traditionally to a physical notebook when on the road.
