My self-summary
My name's Chad Walker and I'm an artist. I do illustrations for bands and games, preferably for money.

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 enjoy a well observed critical opinion. You can tell me I look like Steve Buscemi's teeth. I respect that.

I'm very analytical about things and don’t have brash emotional reactions. If you forget to wear matching accessories, I won't eat your last piece of cheesecake.

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).

You know what's good? If you thought art, you are correct: music, movies, games. Pizza can also be correct.

Finding new, legit music is one of my favorite things. Unfortunately, my knowledge of the top 100 is on the level of an Amish goat farmer. Who is Rihanna even? I'm about that new sound. You heard any Japanese math-rock or fusion jazz lately? It's even better than Kanye.

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. 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.

I'm not big on inhibitions. I'll say what I mean and mean what I say. 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 interaction becomes a game of barriers and acceptance, rather than just being damn who you is.

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!

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to better myself as an artist. I will currently draw anything for money, because that stuff is good. You can check out my art in the extended photos here, or on my tumblr!

I'm also learning how to produce music in Ableton and NI Maschine. My current skill level, "toddler with a disability." I'm going to drop the sickest My Little Teapot remix you've never heard.
I’m really good at
-I'd like to think I'm good at art.
-Making the worst faces.
-Providing advice regarding emotional conflict.
-Playing Street Fighter 4. I sometimes go to tournaments. I'll beat your ass.
-Lying to my parole officer.
-Making you question whether or not I have a parole officer.
-Naming animals, ex. “Shatwise Brownsworth” and "Jeep Grand Cherokee"

The six things I could never do without
Art, music, movies, love, DESSERTS, Street Fighter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking about how to make individuals happy, instead of how to solve the world's problems.

People's unwillingness to accept being imperfect and wrong.

The value of accomplishment over immediate satisfaction.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chillin'.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love singing to Chaka Khan and Prince.
You should message me if
If you've got a dynamic personality and have a brain in operable condition. I'm afraid I'm a man of impossible demands.
