How old are you?

Past 30. 

I don't speak English very well.  Do you speak <insert language here>?

The only language that I speak comfortably enough to communicate in is English.  Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.


How long have you been drawing?

As long as I can remember.  But I didn’t start getting serious about art until I was around age 15 or so…


Are you single?

Why would you even ask that to a random person?  I don’t even…

If you need to know, I’m asexual.  Not looking  Not interested  


Who are your favorite artists?

Many.  A few off the top of my head are Terryl Whitlatch, J Scott Campbell, Allison Theus, David Aja, the late Al Rio, David Finch…


Are there any artists that you don’t like?

Rob.  F---ing.  Liefeld!

Normally I can find something to appreciate about every artist, amateur or professional… but not him.  I really have no clue how he made it in the comic industry and continued to get work.


Where do you get your inspiration?

Mostly the world around me.  I find so much beauty in the natural world.  Sometimes I find inspiration in the music that I listen to.

I rarely find inspiration in the movies and TV shows that I watch as it is rare to find one that leaves a big enough impact on me artistically to inspire what I do.  There are exceptions to this, however.  Shows like Firefly have had a huge impact on what I do.


What kind of music do you listen to?

Mostly musical scores.  Especially when I’m working on art.

Sometimes I will listen to classic rock or alternative.


What is your favorite animal?

Well, it’s no surprise that I am a bird person.  I love all birdies, but quaker parrots are my favorite.

I also like cephalopods, the mantis shrimp, fennec foxes, cats, dinosaurs and many others.


Who is your favorite superhero?



What do you do besides draw?

Cooking.  I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I’ll admit that I am one hell of a cook.  If I couldn’t draw, I’d probably be a professional chef.

Other than that, I play video games and board fames, write science fiction and enjoy all sorts of geek stuff.


Will you be my friend?

Err… hehe.  Asking that kind of makes me a little uncomfortable since I don’t know how to answer that.

I feel that the word ‘friend’ is thrown around pretty loosely around the internet, and that friendships just form naturally… not by asking someone.  Since I am a private person, gaining 'true' friendship with someone VIA the internet is difficult for me.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind having online friends… I have a few long time watchers and clients who I consider to be friends.   


Why don’t you respond to my comments?  D: D: D:

I am a very easy person to talk to, and I will gladly have a conversation with you if I feel as if I have something to say about the subject.  However, one thing that you have to realize about me is that I will not idly ‘chit chat’ if I don’t feel like I have anything relevant to add. 

I will never ‘blow someone off’ unless they are behaving like jerks/entitled children.   You guys got me to where I am today, and I am very thankful for that.  I will always read what you say to me and will always appreciate your comments.  I might just not have anything meaningful to say in response, but I will make time to respond if I feel like I do.
