Hey everyone, thank you for welcoming me to Weasyl! Great to see so many friends here. I'm not completely done with FA, there are still plenty of artists whose work I want to continue following there. But I'll keep future new furry art uploads to Weasyl. Here, have a meme!
What's your real name?
How tall are you?
What's your natural hair colour?
What's your eye colour?
What's your orientation?
Are you single, taken or undecided?
What do you do in your spare time?
Draw (obviously), read (comics + boring nerd history books), bike (summer), fret (winter), look at glowing rectangles
What's your job or occupation?
Barista at a local coffeeshop.
What do you like about yourself?
I am clean and polite. I eat sort-of healthily and try to be considerate of others.
What do you dislike about yourself?
I can be dreadfully lazy and unmotivated, and often have a hard time expressing my emotions. I'm also pale and scrawny, a result of both my lifestyle and pasty British/Norwegian ancestors.
What did your friends notice about you when they first met you?
I can't say for certain! But here's a story: after midnight on New Year's, some pals and I visited the loft apartment of two art school friends-of-one-of-those-pals, where a party was winding down. There were colourful mannequin legs sticking up on top of the kitchen cabinets and a chinchilla hutch. (That has nothing to do with the eventual point of my story, but I'm painting you a pretty good mind-picture of that loft apartment, right?) Upon introducing myself to the female half of that couple, she told me I looked like I could play a servant on Downton Abbey, because apparently the servants are always more attractive than the aristocratic main characters. She bookended that observation with assurances that she meant no offence, and none was taken -- she was obviously embarrassed with herself for telling me that, it's just she had been watching that show a lot lately and it was something that struck her about me.
I don't know how to end that story. Those were really cute chinchillas.
What is your belief/religion if you believe in anything at all?
Atheist! I don't believe in anything so we should all kill each other, HUH, IS THAT IT?
Do you drink?
Sometimes. I get tipsy easily.
Do you smoke?
Very occasionally I'll smoke p*t. But regular tobaccy grosses me out horridly.
What are your major fears?
I fear hurting the ones I love.
Do you have any dreams or goals?
Becoming a cartoonist, I guess: having the means, energy and ideas, to put out comics (ideally in book form) and have people look at them. Right now I hesitate to even call myself an "amateur cartoonist", it makes it sound like drawing is something more than a hobby for me.
Have you ever had a crush or an ex?
Yes and yes.
Who's your best buddy?
I have a group of good friends, I don't really have a /best/ friend.
What's your favourite dish?
Shrimp pad thai!
What's your favourite drink?
What's your favourite colour?
All my life I've never been able to pick one. I thought that I'd finally reached the age when that choice didn't matter, I suppose not.
If you had a super power, what would it be?
What's your favourite movie?
Probably Spirited Away, there's a lot I love about that film.
What's your least favourite food?
Never cared for cauliflower I guess...
What's the last meal you want before you die?
A trough of poutine
What do you drive and what would you really like to drive?
I do not drive nor never learned how to drive, that was a skill I decided I did not need to learn, and instead crammed that empty space in my brain with more useful facts about presidents. I don't think I'll be able to afford a car for at least a few more years anyway.
What is your most disliked bug?
Mosquitoes are the bane of my existence May thru September.
What pet peeves do you dislike the most?
Roommates leaving messes in shared areas: kitchen, bathroom, etc. It's very inconsiderate! C'mon guys. I can only leave so many passive-aggressive post-it notes.
What do you dislike in life?
