I'm here to meet cool new people. If by chance we share a mutual affection, that's even better! I'm not going to be the guy to project absurd expectations on you. ;p
I do art for a living. To verify that my career extends beyond napkin drawings at Ruby Tuesday, you can check some of my portfolio here!

***MY EXCEEDINGLY SUPERFLUOUS PROFILE
My name's Chad Walker and I'm an artist. I do illustrations in Photoshop, preferably for money. I like to make bad decisions and use that money on shoes, and even worse, shoes with sequins on them. Fuschia is my favorite color. I’m embarrassingly honest. Within the next couple of paragraphs, I’m going to explain to you why we should have dinner.
I'm a very sane individual and feel that to be pretty important. I'm proud to say that I won't be saving pieces of your hair or telling you to put lotion on your skin. If this isn't what you hoped for, then I have a consolation poster of a very hungry looking Anthony Hopkins to give you.
I do my best to stay self-aware and external view-points are very interesting to me. That said, I mostly enjoy well observed critical opinions.
I'm very analytical about things and don’t have brash emotional reactions. If you forget to wear matching accessories I won't knock you down a well.
I like humor that plays on logic or conventions; but I also like things that appeal to my perpetually regressed child-brain. You tell me an embarrassing story, I'll shake your hand. You tell me a wonderful story of irrevocable shame, I'll buy you a dress (not really).
Art, music, games and movies; they're great. Anything with a modicum of art in it, I'll be interested. I love pickin’ up new music and am pretty knowledgeable about modern Japanese rock and jazz. LET’S TALK ABOUT IT, or at the very least make fun of Chris Brown's, "Wet The Bed." (skip to the "I spend a lot of time thinking about" section for more info)
Have you heard the lyrics to that song? Have you really? If you have and liked it, not ironically, I recommend you the works of Limp Bizkit. Their music is quite lovely.
It's very important to me to be able to understand things you like, especially things you don't like. I believe that attempting to understand how you feel about something lets you better understand yourself. Without keen observation of that, why should anyone else care to understand you?
I used “understand” four times in that previous paragraph. Redundancy bothers me, but I’m in a very “Fuck English” mood right now.
If you talk to me on the internet, I’ll often misspell stuff. I apologize in advance for when I ruin the art of language, 'coz sometimes I just don’t care 'bout formality. I mean proper grammar is cool, the DJ better stop the turntables when I correct myself on to vs. too, but I try and bring as much of my real personality into convos as possible.
Sorry Tolstoy, I haven't learned a damn thing.
I'm not big on inhibitions. I'll usually just come out and say some wild shit. While certain pacing is involved with talking to people, I believe that it's best to just be open and let people know you for who you are. Keepin' components of your personality "TBA" is absurd to me. That sort of thing only leads to problems later, when social interaction becomes more about barriers and acceptance than just being honest and true.
A lot of what I'm going to say, following this, will sound somewhat arrogant. It is to an extent. However, I do maintain an open mind and have respect for those of contrasting interests. So I'm not going to flat-out shun anyone for differing beliefs or ideals. I try very hard to understand everyone for who they are.
I'm not a fan of overly zealous members of any religious group. I think it's perfectly fine to have beliefs of the supernatural, but once it starts affecting your corporeal lifestyle and your state of mind it becomes a problem. The most real thing in this world is your perception of it. Religion taints and distorts that, often to negative effect, promoting prejudice of varying degrees. Remaining faithful to an intangible figure can also create an inhibiting lifestyle I don't appreciate. The morals within religious works can be nice, and I concur that rape and murder are not savory.
THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP BIBLE!
Also doing hard drugs is terribly lame. I have a similar opinion on drugs as I do with religion. It affects the only real tie between you and this world, your mind. I believe every person has the capability to experience a full range of emotions without the aid of supplemental substances. If you don't believe that, that is a weakness of mind and character.
Yeh, that kind of reads like, “fuck you,” doesn't it?
I also really like cannolis, eclairs, creme-brule, and custard donuts. Basically stuff filled with cream, don't read into it.
Hopefully that is enough superficial information to fill you in. If not, send me a PM and I’ll answer everything TMI style.
