If it makes me drool, it's my favorite.



STRiPES-01's Profile Picture
Just Stripes
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I have a name.
No, you can't know it.
But you can know my LINE account: ストライプス is the name.
My ultimate dream is to live in Japan, or at least study there.
My dream career is as a singer/songwriter/producer.
I'm currently learning Japanese.
...Very slowly.
My fave color is red.
I'm very social.
I'm very affectionate, even towards friends.
I'm a total NERD.
I'm Irish, American, German and Norwegian.
I'm a grammar Nazi.
I will probably have a typo or grammatical error in this.
I love steampunk.
I love VOCALOID because they represent my two favorite things in the world (Japan and music).
Don't ask me to draw backgrounds.
I suck at backgrounds.
If you want a background, expect a poopy one.
I'm BS-ing this list at this point.
I like my music loud.
Really loud.
No one is reading to this point anyways.
I don't like repeating myself.
GLaDOS is my bestest girlfriend ever.
When I get a bad feeling about something, it usually happens.
I will probably still ask my parents to sleep with them when I get nightmares.
At the same time, I love nightmares.
I also love dreams.
Dreams and nightmares give me good ideas for stories and drawings.
My stories are always in first-person.
My dreams are always in first person.
My dreams are like acid trips.
One of the tripy-est dreams I had was when I was exploring these ruins and a bunch of giant, carnivorous plants popped out of nowhere and didn't attack me, but started shouting "CHERRY!" at me over and over in deep, creepy voices.
I've never been on acid.
Don't do drugs.
Stay in school.
I've been level 58 for the longest time on RuneScape.
Well, I was level 58 until they changed all the settings.
Now it's like every other MMO out there -__-.
My laptop wallpaper has a really pretty picture on it.
I am the youngest in my family.
I am the second tallest.
All I have to do is beat Dad >:3.
The cake is a lie.
You probably hate me for talking so much.
I still love you.
I love you even more if you read all of this.
I think I'm gonna shut up now.

  • Listening to: The humming of my laptop
  • Reading: What I typed
  • Watching: The screen ._,
  • Playing: Nothing
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Water. Key to Success.
Hey, so a lot of you guys probably don't even Watch me anymore but that's okay.

I'm sorry I've been inactive... for a year. Things have just been crazy busy. I know these sound like a bunch of excuses but I don't know when I'll be able to be active again, Here's why:

1. College.
This. This is draining me. I took four classes last semester and I'm taking five now, including a lab. On most days I wake up at six and don't get home till nine. Any other day I'm working.

2. Vocal lessons.
Honestly, right now this is my priority. I've decided I want to pursue a career in music production, though I still want to make art of course. The thing is, I realized that once I started doing art under requests and pressure that it wasn't fun anymore. It became more of a job than fun, and that's when I realized that I really didn't want to pursue it in college, where restrictions and rules put one under even more pressure. Drawing is something that comes to me naturally and I just can't force my brain to work like that anymore. Then, I discovered that I can see myself doing music as a career. Though it's just as stressful as any other art field, it was one of the only other loves I had. In fact, I may have loved it my whole life, but was never encouraged by others to pursue it. I really do love music and I really wanna see where I can go. It's a long process and some nights I don't even get to practice. I've certainly gotten better but I need to be prepared by March. 

Don't misunderstand. I do wanna come back and try to post some more. I want to get back into art desperately. Just know that it may take time.

3. Japanese.
I've had the biggest love affair with this culture for many years, or at least what I know. I'm taking Japanese in college now and I'm trying to get there as quickly as possible. I will always love my home, but I feel like that's where I need to be, even if it's only for a little while.

(And with the elections coming up here in America, the future in this country seem rather bleak ._. At least for the next four years. I honestly need to do some more research before elections, but so far none of them seem very appealing.)

4. General lack of faith in my art skills
I don't know. I seem to not be improving at all. I don't know how to practice because when I was first learning I just picked things up without much research. I'm desperately trying to improve, especially in digital art but I'm not sure where to start. I know this isn't much of an excuse...

Also, Painter 2015? Insane. I feel like I could so so much more but IDK how. That I'm definitely gonna research.

But that's pretty much it...

I HAVE, however, been posting art frequently on my Instagram. It's easier to keep up with. If you'd like to follow it. it's: stripes.01, and please do follow it because I have very recent posts on there.

I'm thinking of dedicating this account more to digital art than anything.

Anyways, for those of you who have stayed, thank you. I love you and you're amazing and I'm really sorry I've been so terrible. I will be back. Lots of love!!!
