Eads also has a strong passion for art.

“I’ve always loved putting emotion into drawings,” Eads said. “But I also like drawing characters from some of my favorite shows.”

Eads sees art as more than just a hobby.

“Art is more than just a drawing on a piece of paper,” Eads said. “People, including myself, use art to express emotions that they’re feeling. It can be done just for fun, but it means a lot more than that to me.”
