My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I kind of quit OKC without actually hitting the quit button for a bit. Let's see if we can get this thing rolling smoothly again.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the moment I'm a freelance illustrator. I quit my crappy day job last year to save my sanity and this seemed like the next logical choice, believe it or not. Since then I've decided it's not for me, at least not yet. Never say never.

So I spend my time job hunting and working on passion projects when I'm not paying the bills. It's a weird feeling for me. Up until recently I would have told you I had a lot of direction and was very goal oriented, but now? Now I kind of just want to make cool things and read books.

I do have a graphic novel coming out in 2015 from Oni Press (same folks as Scott Pilgrim), so maybe that gets me more 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, running, using big words in conversation accidentally, time management (really.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the really curly hair, or the unsettling feeling that I'm cataloguing what you look like in case I have to draw someone like you later.
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.

The movies I'm probably looking forward to the most in the next two months are Dear White People and Big Hero 6. Seriously, I'm way too excited for those.

Futurama is still great. So is Doctor Who, and South Park, and I watch the Daily Show a lot.

I'm alternating between Howlin' Wolf and Dinah Washington right now. Plus Jack White, and Daft Punk, and Cage the Elephant, and Lupe Fiasco, and so on. I'll spare you the list.

I love carbohydrates- pancakes, bread, cookies, all kinds of baked goods- but I try to stay healthy for running so I don't eat them as much as I'd like.

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.
Drawing stuff, running shoes, a good book, twenty dollars and the train. That's also a description of my favorite kind of day!

I'm also pretty proud of the fact that I get 6-8 hours of sleep a night. That's not easy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever passion project I've recently fallen in love with. Or just what to do next. I'm so used to having a long term goal and now I don't. It's a very surreal feeling.

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?
I haven't done anything cool on Fridays lately, but last Sunday I played a board game with my neighbors, ate a special brownie and watched Frozen. If you can think of a better time, you clearly have your priorities wrong.

You know what the best time I had this week was? I reread Outcast of Redwall and drew the two main characters as humans instead of animals. I was up until 3 getting them right.
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.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like poor but passionate people who would rather wander around Grant Park than go to a dive bar. Not that bars aren't occasionally fun- just not every night.
