Well, I'm a student trying to figure out if I want to go to art school or just a regular college. I'm a big fan of animation and comic books, and I basically spend all my money on those two things. My dream is to one day be a successful comic artist, working for a company that allows for full creator rights, such as Image Comics. However it would also be really cool to be an animator, and I'd like to learn how to do both 3D and 2D animation at some point. I'm not that discriminating with music, although I don't like rap that much. I've only heard one rap song I like and I don't even know what it's called.

Also I live on the East Coast, about an hour and a half away from NYC.

You can get a very generalized view of what I look like from my avatar. Just add a nose in there, and maybe some eyes behind the glasses. I'll have to post a picture up here some day.
My favorite fictional works are Berserk (manga), Invincible (comic book), Avatar: The Last Airbender, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, and Rurouni Kenshin. I was a big anime fan about 2 years ago, but these days I'll watch and read anything so long as it's good.

And I'm liberal.

I used to know a tramp, he threw a bottle at me. It hurt.

You're going to be throwing bottles are you?

Edit: After reading some of these, I thought mine was quite lacking, so I'll add some to it. Eventually.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

If you can't figure out my real name, then that's just…. like needing instructions for how to leave a message on an answering machine.

22, female. I live in Staten Island (anyone hear of it, anyone? Nah, didn't think so).

I work at Toys R Us, and hate it there, and have every intention of quitting, and have had that intention since I started working there in august.

I'm a writer by virtue of the fact that I make sentences that collectively work together to tell the same story.
I'm also very sarcastic.
My current status is in pain because I have a crick in my neck because I don't have a bed.
I live at home with parents because I work at Toys R Us.

When I'm not home, or at work, I'm with my friends, cooking food, and role playing… or drinking. Sometimes both.

My favorite animal is the fox.

I am awesome… as my signature states.

I'm addicted to House, and Mythbusters, play video games as much as possible, and know so many show tunes that were I a mere mortal, my brain would leak out of my ears.
Luckily, I'm some sort of pan-dimensional super being.

..I also own 19 dragons. I'm amassing a small dragon army for he day the zombies come and kill us, or the clones try to take over our lives. I just hope they don't turn my dragons into zombies.. or clones… or ZOMBIE CLONES….

…awww man, I'm so doomed.

Hi, i'm Ryan. Married, 24 years old, from Atlanta, Georgia. I'm currently a full time soldier of the Air Force working as a network administrator. I'm in line to start taking classes to achieve a Bachlors in Illustration soon. I enjoy anime, drawing, comics, video games, and computers.

I'm Jim Giar…and from what I can gather from all the other posts, I could quite possibly be the oldest codger here. I'm 44, married to one of the most wonderful woman in the world for almost 20 years, I've got 2 kids and a dog. I'm an artist, writer (if ya want to call it that.)and have my comic posted here at DD. I started doin' comics in the 90's, mostly pencil work…but did some inking and lettering on one title…All my work had been for smaller publishers. Got fed up and left the industry in 2000 and just recently, a little over a year ago, came back into it. I've hopes to publish my book by the end of the year..if not sooner. Health problems…umm other than hair loss, and I took care of that by shavin' my head 6 years ago, I got none. I lift weights, run and try and eat right..but we all have our moments. I write a monthly article at Independent Propaganda and..have a penchant for Horror, Action and Westerns….oh and I have the ability to teleport at any given mome*

Yay, friends!
I live in New England (Which, despite popular belief is NOT in Europe.) I'm in High School, and er… I'm on earth?
I'm a shy person, and I'm constantly paranoid about if I'm pissing people off or not, I like to sing, draw cartoon-ish stuff. I love to build things, robots, furniture, that stuff.
I love talking to people, though I am a bit of a recluse, when I get emberassed I tend to go into a hermit phase for a few days, it's kinda stupid, really.
Uh…I used to play WoW, USED TO Never want to again, game pissed me off after awhile. That and I sawy what I was becoming, and decided to get out while I still could.
Oh! And I'm going to a summer program this summer called “Frontiers” if anyone else is going, then please tell me.

So, yeah, if you can put up with me, I'd love to talk to y'all.

Oh, and as for Skool's driver's liscense thing I'm gonna bet she has a eprmit-type deal, so she has her liscense, but dosn't really.

Actually I have a US license, an International Permit, and half a British license (theory is passed, need to pass practical)… I was ok to drive in England for a year under an international permit, but after 1 year a person magically becomes incapable of driving and has to get the full British license. Of course no one tells you that until it's too late for you to do it the easy way. Damn you England! >:[

Let's see.
Age: 23
Location: VA, near Washington D.C.
Jobs: Server and bartender, sales associate at Hot Topic, and intern for Silent Devil, plus freelance work.
The bar jobs pays the bills.
I worked at Hot Topic through college, I'm pretty fed up with it now, but it's like a bad relationship. It's easier to stay than to quit.
I live in the downstairs apartment of a house with a roommate who is vastly more popular than I am. I couldn't stand moving back in with my parents after a graduated last May. I graduated with a BFA in art, but it is very hard to make a living in art. Kind of goes without saying.
I don't smoke, though I probably drink too much. I like to tell myself it's in the same way that Hemmingway or Poe drank to much. I suppose that remains to be seen. I am drinking a “Chocolate Russian” as we speak. That would be chocolate soy milk, vanilla vodka, and coffee liquor.
I'm not very social, though I am not unfriendly and I have friends. I don't like the phone much. I probably only get two or three phone calls a week. I have a mind like a steel trap for facts and trivia, but I don't remember names or faces, which can be problamatic. I haven't been on a proper date in about 6 months, I suppose, but that's assuming that a couple of things that turned out very badly don't count. I have terrible taste in men.
I watch a lot of Star Trek.
I studied photography in school and occasionally photograph rock bands for money.
I no longer date men in rock bands.
I read a lot of comic books.
I snap at people a lot.
I have some lingering injuries from a nasty skateboading accident.
I have a very short attention span.
I had a mohawk for years until I got really pissed a few months ago and shaved all my hair off.
If anyone should bother to ask I will freely tell them that I am a jerk and I have a terrible temper.

You have ants? o_O Is that painful? I think you can get some sort of shampoo for it these days…
lol!

A bit more about me:
* I'm Australian.
* Quite left off centre.
* A straight male.
* Too skinny.
* have long, originally mousey blond hair that's going a brassy, light browny, reddy colour.
* Don't watch TV.
* Don't drive.
* Have a pointy nose.
* Have a lot of art qualifications.
* Have always liked SciFi and fantasy, but now I only read the more “classic” books in those genres.
* Love European cinema.
* Can make, fix, and build most things.
* Like to ride horses when I get the chance.
* Like to stay abreast of world events (news addict).
* Always very curious about what's behind… ie. the history that leads up to world events, where certain words originate etc.
* Collect hats.
* have two pets cats and several goldfish.
* Am a night person- I just get more done then and it's easier to sleep during the day in the light, against the background noise of daily life.
