My Bio
Hi! I'm Kes, a native Philadelphian who sometimes tries to do the whole art thing. I was born in 1976 (Ack! I'm getting ooooolllld!) and went to Penn State University. I started off majoring in Engineering Science but later switched to East Asian Studies, so I've wound up with a foot in both the clear cut scientific world and in that hazier existence of uncertainties and things half seen or half remembered.

I love anime and manga - they're my preferred forms of entertainment these days. But I'm always willing to try new stuff. I also have some pretty wide interests in things from physics to history to folklore and mythology.

Artistically I'm self taught so IhavenoideawhatI'mdoing... Feedback is always appreciated, including general assessments of my art, anything that particularly jumps out at you good or bad. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry, I have a thick skin. ^_^ I shoot for an anime-ish style, and any tips, suggestions, or things it might help me to learn are much appreciated.

In general I return llamas but not faves or watches. Please only fave or watch if it's because you like what I'm doing. I'd much rather get comments. Conversation helps motivate me much more than anything else. If I go a long time between posting artwork, it probably means I'm in a bit of a funk so feel free to poke me and tell me to get off my lazy behind. ;-)

:iconbobo-kitty: made the chibi avatar for me - she totally rocks!

Yup, I talk politics. Yup, I'm left of center. However, I have no time for ideology. I care about what works in the real world, not how anyone thinks the universe is supposed to be. I always listen. I have no problem with respecting different points of view. I like to learn new things and new ideas. And if you don't want to talk politics just say so. I'm perfectly happy to be friends with people who strongly disagree with me.

However, I have completely exhausted my tolerance for mushrooms: people who want to be kept in the dark and fed bullshit. Those whose egos and worldviews are too fragile to deal with contrary facts hate me and frequently block me. I am the Snowflake Slayer!

Thanks for this llama badge. May I introduce myself to you?

Hmmm, isn't introducing yourself what you're already doing? ;-) Well, if you want permission, you have it. Nice to meet you! ^_^

Hello. I'm Nickolas/Club-Dreamiverse and I'm doing good, you? Want to role-play with me in notes or chatroom?

Enjoying eclipse?

Can't say I'm a big fan, although to be honest I haven't put in the effort to learn how to use it yet.

its bad I use their tutorials to find everything now
