My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Illustrator, violinist, and weird art history trivia enthusiast. I moved to New York five years ago for art school and never left.

INTJ, for those who are into Meyer-Briggs. Fairly accurate!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a commercial artist for children's media (card and board game design, popup books, etc) half the week and as a receptionist the other half.

On the side: trying to perfect my butternut squash risotto recipe, learning to tango (and falling over a lot), shooting pool, yelling about hockey, and getting lost in Manhattan no matter how frequently I look up directions on my phone.

I'm also trying to teach my pet mice to do tricks, but I suspect that may be a lost cause.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been playing violin for about twenty years now so I like to think I'm decent! I mainly play Cape Breton and Irish folk music, and I play at jam sessions several nights a week in pubs around the city. Also art, as it's my job.

A friend who came to my Thanksgiving dinner this past year now refers to me as "the kitchen wizard." I love cooking for people.

I've been reading a lot of China Mieville lately and early-1900s New York history. I'm also very into graphic novels - think Blacksad, The Arrival, and anything by Kerascoet.

A handful of good movies: The Prestige, Amelie, Practical Magic, Let the Right One In, Arsenic and Old Lace, anything by Rian Johnson. I'm also very into animation: Secret of Kells, Millenium Actress, Mary and Max, Princess Mononoke, etc. I've been watching the X-Files lately since I missed out on it as a kid. I'm also really into hockey (though I'm not a Rangers fan - bonus points if you can guess my team).

My iPod is mostly filled with traditional Irish folk music like Lúnasa, Dervish, and Chulrua but I mainline pop music off 8tracks when I'm painting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet, caffeine, a creative drive, music, my violin, good company.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next personal project I'll take on! I just finished a book of street fashion illustrations; now I'm working on a comic and learning how to make violins.

How much I want to adopt a dog.

Also how, for a city filled with so many people, New York is actually a difficult place to meet strangers because we're all so tuned into our own little world. So many of us move here to fulfill a dream, which is fantastic, but then we become so focussed on that single goal that we forget to stop and just connect to other people and other experiences along the way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm out, then at a gallery opening or an Irish music jam session; if I'm home, probably inking comics.
