My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Christian completely, artist by passion and profession, native New Yorker. My foundation is in God’s love, and my hope is in Jesus. Made in His image, yet born into sin, saved only by the grace of God sending his own son to die in my place. He conquered death and set me free. Gave me a family with Him forever. What comes first in my life is my relationship with God, and stemming from that my relationships with others - showing compassion and kindness as best I can. Then various excitements and interests vie for my attention. I do have numerous ideas bouncing around all the time, being in the business of creativity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As a freelance illustrator trying to build this into a successful career, making art and networking connections absorbs most of my time and effort. Tabling at comic cons, sketching performances/events, applying for writing grants, drawing for short films, etc. Aside from that, weekly church and community groups. Often go adventuring with my nephew. Or take myself out for a good wander around the city, snapping photos of random corners and crevices. Sometimes I’m too busy to think about dating, so don’t be surprised if I disappear from this site for awhile, then randomly pop up again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being optimistic and patient, remaining adaptable to shifting situations. Talking animatedly about things that excite me. Thoroughly thinking things through. Or easily succumbing to positive peer pressure, which is how I ended up here on this site.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Couldn't say... you should go ask them. What have you noticed so far?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading: Fairytales and fantasy, comics/graphic novels, interviews with creatives, unusual articles, art history, theologically-minded material, random recommendations. Taken in so many over the years, it's like choosing favorites amongst your children. But I'd recommend Howl's Moving Castle and Creature Tech.

Watching: Humor, suspense, and their hilarious offspring in shows like Psych or Chuck. Romantic comedy, especially Asian dramas. Sci-fi, cartoons, or a mix such as Futurama and Trigun. Studio Ghibli, Pixar, all that good stuff. Megamind may be my new favorite movie. Certain indie films or documentaries. And the crazy ones that turn your brain upside-down and twist it in a pretzel.

Listening: Mainly get hooked on specific songs more than bands. Unless they're friends - then I'm into the band more than any particular song. Lately been replaying tunes by Matt&Kim, The Killers, One Republic, and Grouplove. Bastille's Pompeii, and Capital Cities music video for Safe and Sound. Somehow I've become enthusiastic about Foster the People, particularly their Torches album.

Eating: Delicious new things. Pumpkin pie... pumpkin anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ. Thank God for that!
2) Caring and supportive family/friends. (This is starting to sound like the Oscars.)
3) A good book, or story of some sort.
4) Pen or pencil. (Once I was stranded at a rest stop, and they only had tourist junk for sale. Even the cashiers lacked a simple pen. Finally had to beg one off a stranger.)
5) My digital camera. (Best purchase ever made, and attached at the wrist ever since. When that arbitrary shadow falls across the wall just so, and you're compelled to take a picture of it, several pictures of it... or maybe that's just me.)
6) You in my life. Haha, just kidding. Somehow I've managed to survive so far. But I'll keep a spot here for you, just in case.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the heck God might be doing with my life. And elsewhere.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, helping & sketching for an incredible local theater performance. Usually making comics at my favorite comic shop. Going to a gallery exhibit or music show for someone I know. Karaoke til midnight. Chillin at home with Netflix or online manga. (Guess there is no "typical" Friday night.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That it'll take me months to come up with something catchy-er to say here. Then I'll mentally kick myself for not thinking of it sooner.

That I'm NOT embarrassed to read YA fantasy novels, because I want to make that stuff for a living.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
We're stunningly compatible by OKC's standards, and you want to talk more. Tell me what you like, and what you'd like to know! Or perhaps we're dating enemies but we'd make nifty friends - just don't expect anything further. While I'd be glad to grab a couple beers and discuss the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything (spoiler: it's 42), I much prefer dating with the potential for a genuine deeper relationship, and plausibility of marriage someday. For me, a significant other should not only support my faith, but share this core part of my life.

You've actually read my profile/questions and mention a point of interest, rather than cookie-cutter comments. (Tip: If you tell me "you are hot" I will be temped to reply with "you are not." But I will ignore you.) Honestly, even asking about my day feels kinda generic.

Since I have a lot on my plate, communication may be spotty or non-existent, so don't get your feelings bruised over it. Probably not available to meet frequently, at first anyway, unless you're willing to jump into what I'm already doing. Or if you live nearby, perhaps I could step out for a bite or drink. Always appreciate a decent meal, a hearty conversation, and a good dose of out-of-the-box fun.
