My self-summary
So where to begin...
I am a children's illustrator - fortunately I inherited by Dad's genes (he created the Poddington Peas!). I love the job and get to work from home, and I am currently designing my own characters for a hopefully long- running book series.

I lived in Nottingham for 12 years but last year moved back down south to be close to my parents and friends and it was definitely the best thing I could have done - working from home does give you the freedom to live where you want to be, rather than where you have to.

Relationship-wise, I am somewhat of a late-bloomer. I havn't had a lot of experience - for one reason or another love hasn't come my way, although I have been blessed with the love of good friends and a close family. I am hoping online dating may be the solution.

As to a detailed description of who I am, perhaps that's best to discover rather than list here. I have been told by my friends that these profiles don't do me justice, or maybe I am just lousy at filling them out. All I will say is that I am a decent, sensitive and honest person who is into geeky things, but without being unsociable. Physically I need to shed a few pounds and trying to work on that, but I don't have any serious vices - well maybe trifle and chocolate... I love tennis and ping pong but I'm not what you would call athletic, I like a lot of music but films are my real passion. I love animals (and choose not to eat some of them) but tend to kill plants.
What I’m doing with my life
Illustrating ninja princesses and cyborg sharks, and just about getting away with avoiding real work. Attempting to lose weight via tennis, fasting and dieting.
I’m really good at
Karaoke, doodling, caricatures and killing household plants
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my smile, but honestly I have no idea without conducting some form of survey, and that would be pretty weird.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ok, well bookwise, I love Terry Pratchett for pure comic inventiveness,JK Rowling, Jim Butcher`s Dresden files, Douglass Adams etc. Films are my real passion. I love adventure films including Indiana Jones, Starwars (original trilogy), Lord of the Rings, Rocketeer, Helloy, Spiderman, Superman (original), as well as intelligent thrillers (Usual Suspects, LA confidential, Film Noir), and comedy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Monty Python). For Tv comedy, I also love Father Ted, Spaced, Frazier and Blackadder. Tv drama, Fringe, Game of Thrones and Grimm. For Food, well probably a toss up between italian and indian. Theres not much I dont like infact, except Brussels sprouts. Musically, I absolutely love Barenaked Ladies, County Crows,Scouting for Girls, Weird Al Yankevitch, as well as cheesey stuff like Abba and Queen. As long as its not too heavy, I can pretty much listen to anything.
Six things I could never do without
Movies, Friends, Family, Something to doodle on, Roleplaying, Boardgames
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Deep complex thoughts on life and - Squirrel!
On a typical Friday night I am
Occasionally at the pub with friends. If not, at home playing xbox or watching dvds.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am kind of messy- so need a little order in my life!
You should message me if
You are genuine and down to earth and havn't run away screaming already
The two of us
