there are many sides of me :)

the artist:
I do a lot of fan art. Mainly, i draw singers and band members, but sometimes i will draw actors or book characters. i tend to stick to black and white pencil drawings because i think the contrast looks especially striking. but, part of the reason is that I'm scared to mess up the drawing by using color. Not that I'm scared of color, (hell, my hair was bright red for almost a year) but I'm afraid to use it because it can't be erased.
The artist part of me comes out in what I wear, too. I ditched brand names a long time ago. Ok, not ALL brand names...i LOVE Doc Martens!!! i wear my British Doc Martens proudly :D

the writer:
I'm a bit of a writing-addict. My stories ALWAYS have something to do with the paranormal weather it be witches, druids, or vampires. i write about what i want to experience. Love is a big thing in my stories. I don't have a boyfriend, so i guess i live through my characters to an extent. I want to experience that kind of love, and in writing it, i sort of do.

the music freak:
my favorite bands are Epica, Evanescence, Paramore, and Kamelot, but my two all time favorites are Epica and Evanescence. i love the contrast between the two -- Epica's songs about worldly issues while Evanescence's songs are extremely deep and personal. Kamelot is the best of both worlds. I'm still heartbroken because the lead singer, Roy Khan left the band, and took his beautiful voice with him :'(. They now have a singer named Fabio, and he has a good voice, but It's not right for Kamelot. He has a very heavy Spanish accent, and Roy's Norwegian accent fit the old-world, timeless, feel of the music better. It's just my opinion though. Paramore is what i listen to when I'm in an extremely good mood. their music lends itself to being out with your friends and just having a good time :)

the geek/gamer:
I'M A LARPer, AND PROUD OF IT! my first event is in the spring, and my dad and i have been hard at work preparing our characters and costumes :)
yep, I'm a girl, and yes, I play war-games :D my favorite games are RIFT and Lord of the Rings Online. the latter is my all time favorite though. it's downloading as we speak, and i plan on playing all night, teehee!

the goth:
I'm a little goth. Not full blown, but some. my friends call me the borderline goth. its a fitting title, haha

so, i guess that's me in a nutshell. hope you enjoy my work! i love 'meeting' fellow evanescence, paramore, epica, and kamelot fans, so feel free to send me notes, or strike up conversations!
