My Bio
OHI. You can call me Socks or Eggy (or any of my various nicknames but let's leave it at that for now, yes-no?) and I'm what you might call a freelance artist. I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil and am self taught so I'm always learning. Although I will occasionally practice with digital I much prefer to work with traditional materials, good ol' pencil and paper for me.

I tend to get very obsessed with my favorite movies/shows/characters which explains why you'll see a lot of fan art in my gallery. I'm particularly fond of traditional hand-drawn animation and grew up on classic Disney, Don Bluth, etc. My favorite movie of all time is The Lion King and I love Scar. X3

I'm a huge animal lover, a vegan and have been involved in rescue/foster work. I'm also a pretty active nature enthusiast and go hiking with my dogs on a regular basis. Speaking of which, I have four pupsters: a chihuahua named Foxy, a min pin/terrier mix named Cricket, a beagle named Nemo and a husky/collie mix named Wahya. I like doing photography and they're my favorite subjects.

So. I think that's all. See ya around!

I wanted to apologize for asking you about a birthday picture. That was stupid of me to do that. I can understand why you didn’t respond back. I made you upset didn’t? I’m really sorry. Is there anything I can do to make it up to you? I write short stories. I can write you a short story that involves one of your furry characters.

Hakuna matata, I'm not upset! :) I'm sorry I forgot to reply to that note. My life is pretty busy and this last couple of weeks has been stressful. I'm not taking commissions right now though and normally only draw gift art for close friends. But I do hope you'll have a very happy birthday!

I heard you were taking art trades. I would let you do an art trade of this:   Please ?(This scene happened during the battle of the Pride Rock) ;) Anyway, your TLK gallery looks really great because of their Disney expressions! :D

Thank you for the compliment, I really appreciate it! I'm sorry but I'm not taking art trades right now -- I've been in a slump for a while and really haven't been on much. No idea who would've said I was taking trades but I apologize if there was a misleading message going around without my knowing. Thanks again for your kind words. :)
