My self-summary
I cheated on my French exams and got away with it. Ever since then, I have been convinced this will be my downfall in some amusingly contrived, "Tales of the Unexpected" type fashion. Essentially, I'm quite fatalistic.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator, still trying to crack the video games industry in the hope of fame and fortune (mostly fortune), but I'll turn my hand to anything arty to make ends meet. I keep threatening to make a comic book one of these days.
I’m really good at
Drawing cartoon people. Just not exploiting the drawing of cartoon people for profit, seemingly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books -

I'm trying to read better books, but sadly, I'm in a line of work where one can look at comics and call it "research". In any case, I like the work of Hunter S. Thompson, Terry Pratchett, Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, Philip K. Dick and J.G. Ballard. On the nerd shelf of awesomeness, Akira, and Dominion Tank Police take pride of place.

Movies -

I tend to get more out of a b-movie with ambition than a mediocre blockbuster. Not big into cape films either, but I'll give most things a shot. Some favourites include 24 Hour Party People, Play It Again, Sam, Blade Runner, Dawn of the Dead (not so much the remake), Suspiria, Sorcerer, The Big Lebowski, Southern Comfort, Repo Man, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Ghost in the Shell and The Castle of Cagliostro.

Music -

I have a massive un-ironic love of the new wave, indie and electronic things. Particularly New Order, Depeche Mode, Carpenter Brut, Kavinsky, Daft Punk and so on. Also '70s Bowie, Talking Heads, The Funky Four, etc. Lately I've been listening to a lot of vaporwave, it's strangely soothing.

Games -

Don't get a huge amount of time for playing vidya games of late, but I still enjoy a good Metroidvania. Strangely, I've noticed when playing Breath of the Wild that I feel compelled to do the side quests, not out of any desire to get 100% completion, but just because I want the NPCs to be happy.
Six things I could never do without
Satire is a great comfort to me, the world seems far less awful when you can laugh at its expense. As such, I'm avid fan of series like Have I Got News For You, but I appreciate anything sharp and comical. Stephen Fry and Charlie Brooker are my heroes. Probably not six, so I don't know, chocolate digestives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably drawing something on my digital tablet. It is the best thing I have ever owned.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
3D glasses don't work for me. Between that and the lack of a flying car, I'd say the future has been a bit disappointing so far.
You should message me if
You feel entirely comfortable being alone, but would prefer not to be.

While I'm open to something longer term, my parents are not young and I do spend a lot of time looking after them at the moment, so please be cool with that.
