The 10 things about me:
#1: In childhood I had speech difficulties which my parents had trouble understanding my words. Always picked on for stuttering if it wasn't for my sis chatting with me until I could talk with others. Now I am completely outgoing, friendly; even though I still 'rush' words but I can pick myself up again.
#2: I attended at least NINE different junior-high to highschools. I can recall mixed memories of their systems, school uniform rules and bring a hippo plush to school in my bag. My stationary was decorated with 'something cute' or stars
#3: I have many hobbies, which I tend to jump in and out of. I like to do some small sewing of toys, clay modelling and collecting figurines. I still come back to them but I have been more focused on art lately.
#4: My memories revolved around art. 8 years ago, I wanted to attend an Animation course so badly, I once rushed back to that school with my portfolio (for a 4th time) even after being just let out from my clinic from an anemic faint. Sadly I didn't get chosen but I have started doing my own projects now.
#5: I try to maintain a positive attitude. It's no longer about fame, I realize that it's loving to draw and if I can earn a small pay for my efforts, it's what matters to me. I wished outsiders gave more respect to the struggling artists like us.
#6: I used to be gullible. I believed that the tap facet's hot water was steamy because of magical 'minerals' placed within the water molecules that made it hot. It seemed to be logical at the time, as to why my parents made me use cold water to boil. (now I know better!)
#7: My dream career is to be part of an animation studio team. Even though I know it is a hard route but my spirit burns strong, I don't see myself as a hobby artist but a professional artist.
#8: I am a regular convention-goer. I have set up art booths for a few years, selling fanart prints, buttons and for-hobby goods. But nowadays I want to make something of my own and even though its hard, you can't give up trying.
#9: I loved animals and I used to own a few guinea pigs (I loved them) and one became a mommy with a family of four. Sadly due to moving, I had to give them away to different families.
#10: I love creating characters and giving them life and personality. I used to have preference to make male characters due to females being branded as 'terrible' or made flat/predictable in certain Anime. Thanks to Ghibli films, Azu-Chan roleplays and Disney's Frozen, I started shedding my fear and go with my own instincts.
Questions I have to answer.. ok! Here we go!
1. How do you feel about your art?
A: My art went through many phases, whether it was coloring tests and recent stylizing my art to become my own 'hybrid' style of western + anime, so far I'm liking my improvements.
2. Do you have any one thing that was your inspiration
A: My inspiration for action-type characters came from when I was 11 and saw Ranma 1/2 as my first 'Shonen' series. I loved Rumiko's crazy characters and I was rather tomboyish so it appealed to me. When other girls watched 'romantic shows' I was more interested in fighting heroes.
3. Do you have any guilty pleasures?
A: *whisper* My fave character type is a sly-manipulative lady but she isn't really evil just great charisma and knows how to mess with people.
4. Brains or Brawns? - I prefer brains, because the intelligent people get things done in many ways.
5. Favorite anime/show? It would be 2 shows - HunterxHunter and Adventure Time. The anime having very good fights and character developments, and Adventure Time with so much fun!
6. If you could do whatever you want for a living without worrying about money, what would it be?
- My dream career: Be a successful comic artist and own a studio. But I will slowly make it happen.
7. What season? I like the season of Spring; for new beginnings.
8. What is your daily life like? - it used to be college workloads. Now it's script-writing, character designs, photo trips and stressing over my website. I might become an entrepreneur.
9. Do you envy/ aspire to be like anyone?
A favorite artist I used to admire was celesse, I learned my first coloring from her tutorials. I used to envy her successful business but now I want to focus on my own future successes.
10. How do you feel about the issue of same sex marriage?
Wholeheartedly support it! Like I mentioned, I have friends related in the circle and I feel it's the heart that matters, not what gender or orientation you are.
