I am a student. Not an incredibly good drawer, painter, or photographer, but I'm working on it! In the meantime, digital art is fun. Politically speaking, I consider myself a socialist, and religiously, an agnostic.
A note about my digital photography: all of it is totally raw. No alterations, color adjustments, or Photoshopping. It's the raw photo straight from the camera.
(Unless it is explicitly marked as a photomanip, that is.)
Film, though, is another matter entirely.
