My Bio

My name is Annie. I'm a physician in an obscure specialty and a mommy who draws in her near existent spare time.

I used to draw a ton when I was little (I used to hurry and get my assignments done so that I could draw), but I haven't really had the time because of medical school 'n junk, but I'm TRYING to get back into it. I'm horribly out of practice and embarrassed to put my work on here, but maybe it'll give me more incentive to try? Who knows. My biggest hurdle is the fact that I'm a perfectionist, so I could spend years tweaking something before I'm completely satisfied with it...well, I gotta get over it! I do like to sketch more than anything else, so that's the bulk of what you'll see here.

Oh yeah, I like to dress up like cartoon characters.

Current Residence: sorry...can't tell

Just finished a 12 hour I came home and hopped in the bathtub to warm up my aching bones, and plopped in front of the computer to watch Parks and Recreation and eat leftovers. I'll probably go to bed after this, at like 8:30 PM, lol. Not much drawing, research, or studying that I can get done when I'm this tired!

I really don't get on here much, lol. I wish I had more time to draw, but between residency, reading about brain surgery to be the best neurosurgeon that I can be, doing research, caring for a sick parent, AND planning a wedding, I don't get a whole lot of free time. Drawing though is a NEED, as I'm sure any artist will tell you, so eventually I just can't stand it anymore and HAVE to draw something that isn't spine/brain anatomy, aneurysms, surgical approaches and patient positioning, etc. :) I just got hooked on a new Japanese drama, Jin, which is about a modern brain surgeon who gets transported back to the Edo period! I'm hooked. :D Some

Feeling a bit better (and tipsy). I recently got into my dream medical specialty, neurosurgery, and will be graduating in May, so tonight was a celebration of that. Huzzah! Hopefully, I'll have some time to do some drawing before my residency begins in July, inspiration being the limiting factor. My bf, josephsk, got into Parsons in NYC. I'm super happy that he'll be living his dream, but a bit disappointed that he'll be away. Such is lif3. Now to read and go to bed as to not have a hangover tomorrow.

Thanks for the fave

I still have artwork that you made for me in high school. It's one of my treasured possessions. :squee: I love deviantART!   Want me to scan them for you?
Aw, I have some of yours, too--including one of Lum! So happy you still do art!!
Oh that would be so fun to do one of those "draw this again" memes with old art I've forgotten about!  When you find the time can you scan it in? I will do the same.
