Meme - Getting to know me~ by Kittiara

Have seen a few of the artists I follow post this, and I'm trying REALLY HARD to be active, plus these are fun and I do enjoy discussing myself... uhh... yeah!!

What's your real name?
China Blue. Given name, after the color... you might know it as the chinaplate/porcelain paint color! My parents were artists too.

How tall are you?
5'8" or 5'9" first thing in the morning! ha

What's your natural hair color?
I used to be BLOOONDE. Now more like a warm mid-to-light brown.

What's your eye color?

What's your orientation?

Are you single, taken or undecided?
In a relationship with partner of a few years!

What do you do in your spare time?
Art, worldbuilding, planning art or stories or whatever, eating... Internet. Being worried about obligations and trying to figure out how to motivate myself when tired from work.

What's your job or occupation?
I work as a digital illustrator at a studio that focuses on brand development and art/design for large and varied entertainment properties. Which means I paint everything from toy packaging to beer labels. :>

What do you like about yourself?
Pretty much everything. No but seriously... I like that I am very comfortable in my own skin (as the saying goes).

What do you dislike about yourself?
Overthinking things a lot but paralyzed with inaction at times.

What did your friends notice about you when they first met you?
People comment on my big smile/grin and say I'm friendly and warm. So nice ;w;

What is your belief/religion if you believe in anything at all?
Athiest born and raised! Never had a word for it until I realized, as a kid, that religion was actually something people did.

Do you drink?
Yes, but not beer. Drinks must be tasty (which usually translates to highly potent... oops).

Do you smoke?

What are your major fears?
Stagnating in life or never being good enough. On a more (read: less) practical note... getting run over by a train.

Do you have any dreams or goals?
I want to have a hand in creating things accessible by a wide audience that experience joy because of it... I feel that working Pixar or similar would be a wonderful experience...

Have you ever had a crush or an ex?
My most intense crush is my current partner! Ahhh, I still crush on her..! I had a male ex from before I came out (although there were many other issues with that train wreck).

Who's your best buddy?
I have a few... :> Ok?

What's your favorite dish?
Mmm... I like rich foods, like meat and gravy and savory flavors and butter/garlic/rosemary, and goat cheese, and charcuterie plates and italian pastries and lobster/seafood feasts... liver and bacon with brussel sprouts, grilled zucchini and asparagus, fish and sushi and...

What's your favorite drink?
Orangina, probably! Boozy drinks... stuff with fragrant aspects like rose or lavender and very light/bright overall flavor.

What's your favorite color?
Gold, at the moment... very warm earth tones like Burnt Sienna.

If you had a super power, what would it be?
I honestly don't know... flight is obvious as a really cool thing, but some kind of enhanced learning ability or super speed would be really cool too.

What's your favorite movie?
Urgh, tough one! Brave will do as an answer for the time being! I love it dearly.

What's your least favorite food?
Pearl onions and sun dried tomatoes (LOVE raw and cooked tomatoes though). What even is the point of those things except to muck up the flavor of whatever you were eating?

What's the last meal you want before you die?
Huge sampler of meats and cheeses with various accompanying fancy sauces/dips/garnish. Many flavors to savor.

What do you drive and what would you really like to drive?
I don't drive, I use public transit. I'd really like a Subaru Forester or similar. such a lesbian....

What is your most disliked bug?
Mosquitos, obviously. Ones that logically I know are good/eat other pests but that I CANNOT EVEN DEAL WITH are house centipedes.

What pet peeves do you dislike the most?
Lots. Humans are the source of literally all of them.

What do you dislike in life?
That it's expensive to travel! both in monetary terms and also sheer TIME... can't just leave my job for a few months at this point.

Well, ask me anything!

    • Link

      Ditto! And worst off my uncle is a travel agent, so it's like SO CLOSE YET SO FAAARR (can't watch his FB because totally jealousy factory)

      • Link

        Not gonna lie I've considered going into that line of work just to get all the discounts. But it's SO competitive from what I understand.

    I hear ya on favorite drinks (fragrant and light beverages are the *best), disliking pearl onions (eesh) and especially the last one about travel; there is not enough money and not enough hours in the day to be able to visit the world.

    I know a couple people have already mentioned it, but I think it bears repeating: your name is awesome.

    Do tell... you should probably talk to Biakko/Neeraja. I think you would have a most interesting discussion some day. ^.^
