I've finished college, now. It was a lot of work, but anything that is worth having takes a lot of work. I am between jobs, now, but I do take care of my aging parents. My mother is going blind. She needs my help, now more than ever. I am her eyes.|
I am not much of an artist, per se, but I am creative and artistic in my own way. My skill lies with the written word instead of drawings, but I do like to sketch and cartoon. However, it doesn't mean that I cannot appreciate the fine works of art that I (sometimes) see on this site. Some of you are really fantastic artists and I am happy for you that you have such a talent. This is the primary reason I have this account--I have submitted little art, but I like looking at the art-works of others; admiring the hard-work put into their pieces. This account makes it possible for me to find art that I like much more easy than it would be otherwise.
A bit of a note: Despite being American (in truth, I've never left my home state), I prefer to spell things the "English way"--for instance, the word "colour" just looks wrong to me without the "u".
Though I am getting older, I am fond of "childish" things, like cartoons (though I have not had cable in 10+ years and really dislike television. My favourite television show is the American version of "The Office", though I also like "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"). I am a big fan of Pokemon (have been since 1998--my favourite of the beasties is Hitmonchan) and I love Digimon Adventure and Adventure 02--but only in Japanese. I also play D&D.
I am fond of The Elder Scrolls series, The Fallout Series, The early Silent Hill series, the early Resident Evil series, and a number of other games. I grew up on Zelda and Final Fantasy.
Current Residence: Kentucky
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Old Punk, Grunge, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Smooth Jazz, Folk, Soul. My favourite band is Radiohead.
Favourite style of art: cartooning, but I am very fond of landscapes and realistic portraits of real people and animals. I really admire people who can draw realistically. It is quite a talent.
Operating System: Windows 8
MP3 player of choice: My smart phone. I have a 16 gig micro SD card in there and have it loaded with music. I really do like my phone. It is an LG 800G, I believe. I am too lazy to be arsed to check.
Wallpaper of choice: Currently, I have a picture of derelict old farm-house. I love spooky old black and white photos of abandoned buildings. My wallpaper changes frequently, though.
Favourite cartoon character: Alucard of Hellsing (especially in Ultimate and the manga)
