My self-summary
My name is James and my hometown is best known for being the home of the Wiffle Ball. I've been living in New York since college, a total of about ten years now.

Straight out, you should know that I'm a big nerd. If you're okay with someone who views the world through the lens of Simpsons quotes (well, early Simpsons quotes) and happens to be a fantasy illustrator in his evening hours, that's great. I'm not "one of THOSE guys" but, you know, the cards are on the table.

Sometimes I bake (the cooking kind, not the... you know, other kind) and I do enjoy the occasional snifter of port at Christmas. Currently hoping to build up my illustration work a little more, but I'm pretty happy with where my life is at the moment and I'm ready to meet a swell lady.

I am soft and yielding like a nerf ball. I had a properly bushy mountain man/this generation's greatest mall santa beard but I botched trimming it and had to scale back to within societal norms. I will turn in my wallet chain and anarchy symbol t-shirt, for I am no longer a rebel.

If I had to sum up my life as an Onion headline, it would be "Grown man who owns Bane action figure has love to give".
What I’m doing with my life
I make fake books and figure out production problems for a publisher in Manhattan. Mostly physical mock-ups and our trade show booth along with whatever else happens to be in my job description at a given moment. I get to work with my hands and solve problems and I like everyone in my office for the most part. Plus, I've figured out how to get other departments and my boss to bribe me with baked goods. I'm as crooked as they come, ladies.

By night, I'm a freelance illustrator. I make fantasy/science-fiction/horror pictures for small publishers and I'm hoping to make the break to full time freelance work in a few years. I spent the last two years working on a large project that's finally seen print in a massive book with a lot of my drawings in it, so I'm quite excited about that.

Currently, working on eating healthy and losing some weight. My plan is to learn to cook, replace fake chicken with tofu, pasta with brown rice, sandwiches with salads and reduce how much beer I drink by smoking a lot of crack. I feel more svelte already!
I’m really good at
Drawing, remembering Simpsons quotes with ridiculous accuracy, constructing things out of foamcore, dry humor and awkward silences. Oreo peanut butter brownies and homemade birthday/holiday cards.
The first things people usually notice about me
As of July 15th, I've given myself an awful haircut. So that's probably the first thing to notice. Step right up, ladies! I'm in the business of making bad decisions!
(It's not that bad, honest. Very few people have pointed and laughed. No, wait, please come back, I wrote more!)

I've got the sloping brow and cranial bumpage of a career criminal, the brain pan of a stage-coach tilter. I meet a lot of armchair phrenologists, apparently.

A guy on the street joked that I look like my friend's bodyguard and told him to give me a raise. So I have that going for me!

Other than that- beardy, baldy, bespectacled and a bit chubby.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(I skip this section when I read other people's profiles. I'm gonna save time and give a general idea.)

Books: Mainly genre fiction of the nerdy variety; the kinds of things your college professors sneered at and people judge you for on the subway or at parties. I refuse to feel shame.

Music: Indie rock and art school standards (meaning Belle and Sebastian), hardcore and butt rock.

Movies: Whatever sounds good. Giant robots are a plus, as are humor and boobs. Deductions for the presence of Zach Braff trying to teach me about what, like, MATTERS man.

Food: Sushi, Thai, Indian, Banh Mi, human fle- I mean, vegetarian meatless meat. I have a major weakness for unattended baked goods.
The six things I could never do without
I had a serious list for a little while; I'm not sure how much it would tell you to say what I think I couldn't live without. It's probably the usual stuff- glasses, a nice gentle toilet paper, etc. This list will be what's presently in my backpack, which I take with me every day like every other human obstacle on the subway.

So, presently I have:
- An umbrella
- A sketchbook and a ruled notebook (not writing or drawing enough in either)
- Current reading- "Annihilation" by Jeff Vandermeer
- A leatherman multitool (very eager to use it at any opportunity)
- Another, smaller sketchbook
- A mustache pen, a mechanical pencil, a black sharpie, a blue marker pen, a glasses repair kit
- 1 Crown brand latex condom (Not that I'm expecting anything, I just believe that it's better to have one and use it for balloon animals than to need one and not have it)
- Chapstick

So that's what I carry with me almost every day, often with a brown bag lunch. What do you think?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Figuring out exactly how much I'm saving by packing a lunch for work during the week- and then I'm like,"Woah, slow down wild man! Save something for Friday night!"

Fake Starbucks names. I don't really get coffee there, but when I do I'll say my name is Butch Deadlift or Slab Rockgrunt. Or Flint Chesthair.

If you rub the face sides of two coins together, it's like you're making the presidents kiss!

If I had the space for a tank, I would get two female turtles and name them Patty and Selma.

After getting some very intense fortune cookies, I have been wondering what this all means.
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to my collection of vinyl and taking photos of myself rock climbing/standing next to tigers in exotic locales. Answering fan mail and signing autographs.
....
All right, fine: I'm usually eating mustard packets in the back of my friend's car. Happy now?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm the Dungeon Master for my Dungeons and Dragons group, so if you fancy a man with pretend authority between the hours of 6 and 10 pm on Sunday nights- look no further. (Please don't message me all at once, ladies, the site has been known to crash.)

In Kindergarten I stole a miniature turtle toy from the classroom when no one was looking. But my mom found it and made me bring it back- I didn't fess up, though, I just put it back on the shelf like I'd borrowed it. "Turtle thief! Turtle thief!", you're all shouting!

I hope this isn't too heavy, but I think I've reached the point in my life where I could commit to buying a wok.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

  • Near me

  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I am a Taurus in western astrology and a wood ox in the Chinese zodiac, so if your sign is Ox Cart Driver or Wagon Full of Turnips, I think we'll be compatible.

You are not crazy... or if you ARE crazy but are also seeing a psychiatrist and you really feel like it's helping.

You want to throw me over your shoulder like a conquistador and carry me away from this dreary life of cooking and cleaning.

You prefer the affections of soft beardy mans.

You want to draw me like one of your French girls.
