My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew from an obnoxious but bookish kid into a slightly less obnoxious but much more bookish adult.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a production artist for a sticker company, correcting proofs and running things through printers and laminators. It's not exciting to talk about, but it's fun when you're doing it. It also gives me a predictable schedule so I can manage my time and make things. I've tried the alternative (odd jobs, retail and freelance illustration) and it's pretty awful.

I have a graphic novel that is being released this month from Oni Press (Same folks as Scott Pilgrim) with another in the works. It's the realization of a lifelong dream, so I'm kind of high on it. It also makes the future pleasingly unpredictable- if this goes well I could be doing it full time in a few years.

I also sometimes volunteer at libraries on weekends teaching kids to draw.

Finally, I'm running in the Chicago Marathon this year. It's my third time signing up but my second time running- I injured myself training for attempt number 2.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing, using twenty dollar words in five dollar conversation, and getting really excited about progressive feminist themes in children's cartoons.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I catch myself singing under my breath in public about what I'm doing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Good Omens. Really anything by Terry Pratchett. (I'm still really sad about him dying.) The Color Purple.

The Iron Giant. Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Princess Mononoke. Guardians of the Galaxy. Mad Max: Fury Road.

Daredevil. Agent Carter. Orange is the New Black.

The Kinks, Otis Redding, Johnny Cash, Ratatat, Gorillaz, Jack White, Etta James, Dinah Washington. Lupe Fiasco.

Pasta. Salmon. Not bananas. Bananas are gross. In the future when we're all eating bland nutrient paste to survive it will taste like bananas.

For the record, this thing doesn't ask about favorite comics, but if you aren't reading Saga right now you should know it's amazing. Also: Sex Criminals. And Persepolis. And One Soul.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to balance the work I love with the ever present need for money. Not very original, maybe, but tried and true.

The difference between being successful and being happy. Both would be nice, but if I had to choose I know which one I'd pick.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly I have been so busy lately that I have to stay in and recover. Once in a blue moon a friend will blackmail me into getting a drink (those are the best sort of friends to have.) I also try to get out and support other art people I know, so sometimes that means small galleries or music venues.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You're probably way cooler than me. The bar isn't that high.

I know the words to more Disney songs than you do. (See above.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Here are a few things I find attractive in women. No judgements if you don't check all these boxes, I'm not out to fit you into a mold here.

1. You have a cause you're passionate about and which you devote some time to. Idealism is hot.

2. You like to talk and you like to listen. Conversation is also hot.

3. You are maybe a little old fashioned about sex, or at least are okay with me being old fashioned about it. I tend to need to see someone once or twice before I take my clothes off with them. Not saying that's what you have to be, just that it's what I am. (Ethical sluts still welcome.)

Okay, that's enough of that. Here's some things I think would be fun to do together. This is probably a better litmus test than the above.

Go camping. Summer is almost over and I haven't had a reason to make the time.

Stay in and watch cartoons. Then sit up and talk about the feminist implications of those cartoons.

Go running, then come back and do the thing I just mentioned.

Spend a Saturday trying kinks that neither of us think we're into just to know for certain.

Go traveling outside the country. I haven't been anywhere since I was eighteen, and I really want to go to Cambodia specifically to draw Ankgor Wat.
