My self-summary
I like pink things, silly things, polka dotted things, cute things, goofy things, and making things- and hopefully you do too.

I am a fount of useless information, questionable jokes and ridiculous drawings.

A talent to amuse.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, I'm an assistant designer at an Intimates company, mostly doing kid's stuff- training bras, day of the week undies- but i do occasionally find myself elbow deep in a box full of crotchless panties. I'd previously been doing freelance textile design- i've had stuff in Babies R Us, The Children's Place, Macy's, and so on- which had the beauty of letting me draw dinosaurs for a living while enjoying a pants optional work-at-home lifestyle. The upsides of the current in-office gig is a greater appreciation of Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 and free coffee.

The portion of my life not spent drawing dogs dressed as pirates is spent at parties that feature pot pies shaped like cthulhu, bars where the bartenders shoosh you like librarians, at museums, and on the gif-tacular shores of tumblr.
I’m really good at
Drawing, one liners, making funny faces, being the voice of reason, listening, sarcasm, mix cds, wearing kooky outfits, and being a friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height or my sense of humour, depending on the situation.
The six things I could never do without
a sharp sense of humour, the internet in all its glorious weirdness, something to draw with, my family (chosen and otherwise), my eyes, and weirdo music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
art, oscar wilde, mid century cartoons, comics, my life, the world, books I've read, gender, politics, drawings, work, upcoming parties, old parties, places i've traveled, how great The-Toast.net is, food,and people I miss.
On a typical Friday night I am
either chatting on facebook while listening to music and drawing something in illustrator, or hanging out on my sofa in Sugar Hill with my roomies while drinking red wine and watching tacky sci fi movies and discussing feminist theory, with the odd cocktail party with all of my fave queers, cute date or k-town karaoke gathering in between- me and my pal gabe do a beautiful rendition of biz markie's just a friend. :D
