My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a lifelong Georgian, I grew up in the country but I really love living in Atlanta. I make art and I've shown all over Atlanta and I'm super active in the city's art scene. I'm pretty serious about my art and though I'm not yet at the point where I live purely off of my art, I'm getting there. Also, I just got a free studio at the Goat Farm for a year as part of an art professional development program, so I must be doing something right!

My ultimate goal is to work with art full time. As such, much of my time will be taken up getting that off the ground. But I can make time for the right kind of person.

I'm awesome; if you are similarly awesome, let's compare awesomes. A simple proposition, right? Awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing murals, cross stitches of RuPaul, zines, package design, and the regular old boring paintings, drawings, and prints. I'm in the studio a lot, a lot, a lot. I'm wrapping up my time in a space at the Goat Farm so it's become my second home, except I don't sleep there... or eat there... or do laundry there.

I'm trying to schedule my first trip to Houston, TX and Lebanon, OK but life keeps getting in the dang way! I'm pumped about visiting two new places, one very urban and one very rural; hopefully it'll be the good kind of jarring!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Doing my own thing
-Being open to other people's things
-Drawing. Constantly. My favorite pen right now is the Pentel Hybrid Technica size 03. Puts a Pigma Micron to shame, I'm telling you!
-Cooking
-Making with the funny
-Three part harmony
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My resemblance to Zach Galifianakis (it's just the beard and I hear it ALL THE TIME), my smile, and my ever-present sketchbook full of crazy drawings
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll frame it in terms of top fives, because this list will get way out of hand otherwise:

Books:
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Collected Short Fiction of Flannery O'Connor, The Razor's Edge, The Road, Unbearable Lightness of Being

I also just finished reading a collection of essays by/interviews with Matisse, definitely great reading for any artist.

Comics (different from books, don't hate!):
Sock Monkey, Black Hole, Orion, Maakies, Outland

Movies:
Raising Arizona, Slacker, Blade Runner, Stop Making Sense, Annie Hall

Music:
Cocteau Twins, Misfits, St. Vincent, Brian Eno, Mates of State

REM's definitely my favorite band, but Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" might be my favorite album.

Hell, just take a peek at my spotify, maybe you'll find something you never knew you'd like? http://open.spotify.com/user/1237549360/starred

I generally avoid getting involved in most current tv because the time commitment of keeping up is too much time to take from art stuff, which I enjoy way more. Not hating, just not interested.

About the only time I watch tv is when I'm eating lunch or dinner: Venture Brothers, Harvey Birdman, Charlie Rose, tons of documentaries, old SNL, Kids in the Hall, and X Files are the shows I've been working through, one meal at a time.

I love Indian, Mexican, and Thai food. My spicy brownies are pretty killer too.

I -:[/hate/]:- mint, I know that's really strange, but I do. Grosses me out so bad!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sweet tea
Art supplies
Humor/Absurdity
Accomplishment
Experience
Lurv
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Family, art projects, sciencey things like spacetime, my to-do list, why people are so cray

Also, I will stop whatever I'm doing to look at a bug. I have zero fear with most bugs and if I can capture and observe up close without getting a stinger to the nose/hand, I will do it. If you're a squeal/smash type, leave it to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either in the studio making it happen, at home researching for art, working the day job (at night), or chilling somewhere with a beer or glass of slightly sweet tea. Usually I like to eat a late dinner at the Majestic and sketch for a while if I've been in the studio all day. It's a great place to decompress as long as the drunks don't bother you.

I don't drink very much, so I'm not really into bars, especially fancy/trendy bars. I went to Ormsby's once for a friend's birthday and I wanted to die. I'm much more into coffee shops and diners.

Manuel's and Sister Louisa's are great, though, especially since they started phasing out smoking. Sorry smokers, but I hate coming home smelling like an ashtray.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I minored in philosophy in college partly to understand more jokes on Monty Python's Flying Circus. It worked!
