My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a Masters degree in making comic books and I get really excited about using rollover buttons to tell semi-interactive stories.

Sooo yeah. You can probably extrapolate from that.
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. I also do some assistant work for a graphic designer in Andersonville. Then I go home and make comics all night.

I do have a graphic novel coming out in July from Oni Press (same folks as Scott Pilgrim), so maybe that gets me more paid work in comics someday? That would be a dream job for me.

I also run a lot. You know those really annoying people who love to talk about new things they're trying with their fitness routine? That's me. Sometimes I hear myself and wonder when I became this person.
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 worked up about progressive social themes in children's cartoons.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the really curly hair. Or, let's be honest, the big nose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The best book I read recently was The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which was incredible! I've also recently read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and The Poisonwood Bible, and I reread Good Omens for the umpteenth time. I love books, and I'll probably talk your head off about them.

I watch superhero movies as much as you might expect. I also had a great time at Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and Dear White People, and The Wind Rises. I just got a copy of The Iron Giant for Christmas. I'm ashamed I didn't own it before.

Daredevil. Holy shit that show is so good.

Right now I'm listening to Johnny Cash, Lupe Fiasco, and Wintersleep on Grooveshark.

Pasta. I'm a cliche.

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. I'm also reading a lot of X-men, and Octopus Pie, and a million other things. Ask me to recommend something. I'll get you hooked.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Honestly most of this list would be specific drawing materials, which would make me sound really pretentious so I'm just going to skip it.

I am pretty proud of the fact that I actually sleep regularly and for a healthy length of time. That's not easy for most of us these days.
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?
At this point I'm probably working, but it's not as lame as it sounds. When other people say that they're often trying to push a project out the door in a job they're passionate about. My situation is the same, except I'm drawing zombies while I do it.

There was a Wednesday recently when I went to see a classical guitar performance downtown, but I had to work in the morning so I left before they were done. Balls.
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.

Also I can't parralel park for love or money.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Let's put this another way. Here are some things I would like to do with somebody:

Go camping. It's been a long time and it's looking like a nice summer.

Stay in and watch cartoons. Then sit up and talk about the feminist implications of those cartoons. Trust me, I know where we can start.

Make a lot of really unhealthy food and then regret eating all of it together.

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.

I have more. Ask.
