Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cartoonist, poached egg enthusiast, park lounger, occasional art
show organizer, Olympic-level bins medalist. Emphasis on the
cartoonist part. City person.
I know way too many lyrics to Cypress Hill songs. I'll probably try
to hug any dog I see. I'll encourage anyone's interest in drawing.
I've ripped "no fat chicks" bumper stickers off of cars. I've owned
my own bar/music venue. I've jousted on a tall bike, and won.
Self-summaries are weird.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Drawing, designing, composing images. Finding nothing in life more
satisfying than laying ink onto paper. Illustration here and there,
but mostly it's comics, some of them maybe starring Prince
analogues? I love it, and am doing it actually-professionally now.
Making ends meet by supervising the back room of a bookstore, which
is fine enough at the moment.
Choose-your-own-adventure bike rides, having too many opinions
about movie theaters in town, reading Chick tracts left on tables
outside of coffee shops. Midnight dance parties in mystery
locations fit in there too, every once in a while. I have to get
some mileage out of these neon party shorts, right?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Impersonating Emo Philips, making unforgivable puns, drawing,
knowing what book you're reading by glancing at the spine from a
distance, naming voice actors after two lines of dialogue, riding
the bus(I've seen too many people do this terribly to not consider
it a talent).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the mutton chops. I have large, sort of intense eyes. I
know what things I like, and why. That probably shows a little,
too. Maybe a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This stuff is way better for the in-person part:
Samuel Delany, Miranda July, Jorge Luis Borges
Moebius, Los Bros Hernandez, Lisa Hanawalt
Pedro Almodóvar, Shane Meadows, any movie with the words "Captain"
and "Ron" in the title
Black Mirror, Louie, Cowboy Bebop
Shabazz Palaces, Blonde Redhead, Katamari Damacy soundtracks
Wolf & Bear's hot sauce on EVERYTHING
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Comics(all of them)
Bike rides(bike sweat is some really good sweat)
RuPaul's Drag Race(DUH)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Negative space, the value of never being fully satisfied with my
creative work, wondering how many more universes Detective John
Munch will amble into before he dies, economic downturns in space
colonies, keeping my white/hetero(ish)/cis-male privilege in
I'd say more about feminism, LGBTQIA equality, sex & body
positivity, and the importance of Intersectionality, but on a
dating site it'll inherently sound like a line, right?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're open to dating someone in a committed, open relationship.
You want to draw in a park, coffee shop, or under a bridge. You
want to watch Purple Rain for the thirty-fourth time. You want to
build a religion around screen printing and zip-a-tone. You have
some great stories to tell me, and want to hear some in
return(including but not limited to "completely stretching the
boundaries of taste").
