My Bio
Youngish adult, mixed ethnicity, queer and gender-non-conforming, host to a variety of anxiety/mood disorders and a couple of wayward secondary personalities. Proud Kiwi. Wikipedian.

I'm an amateur photographer, musician and programmer making the most of a student's shoestring budget to do what I love. Not an artist by any stretch of the imagination, I just habitually doodle non-stop, and sometimes pretty these scraps up and put them here.

Favourite Visual Artist
ALL OF YOU, SERIOUSLY

Most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially IM1 and The Avengers. Also Black Swan, American Beauty and Lust, Caution.

Partial to Beethoven, Grieg, k.d. lang and Queen, but mostly I listen to orchestral arrangements of video game or pop music. Or 80s love songs. Because I'm a dork.

hiatus

hiatus

My computer is being flaky, so I can't (digital) art at the moment, and being that I'm off on a month-long trip in a few days, I don't see much room for a large physical project. I've got a few things in mind to work on while on holiday, just as sketches or color pencil works. Possibly india ink, if I feel safe doing that on a plane. But I won't have internet for much of the trip, so they'll all be up in the last week of January or so I expect. Hopefully I get some quiet art time in between all the stuff I need to sort out this month! Now it's just to pack and hope my laptop actually holds out till I can obtain the parts I need to repair it

fangirl for rent!

In case it isn't immediately apparent, I'm a Marvel Cinematic Universe fangirl. (And a 616-Iron Man-storyline fangirl, but yeah.) I write fanfic, but much prefer copyediting it. If you have any Avengers (or Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, etc) fic you'd like me to beta, cowrite, or illustrate/create covers for, I will gladly, gladly do so. And if you for some reason are enamoured with the idea of someone with a midrange, general-exotic-accented voice reading your work, I'd love to do podfics too. I'm especially fond of angst/whump/other incredibly depressing things, but smut and crack and anything else is fine too. I don't have an OTP, so

requests taken!

requests taken!

I don't have much time to draw, but I do need practice - so any not-too-elaborate requests will be looked at :) No guarantees as to their quality though! I like drawing female/androgynous chars a lot more than manly men, and quite enjoy (even if I suck) drawing smut. But anything will be considered.
