So I've been tagged by the lovely :iconlenaofcolours:, and I guess this is the perfect excuse to update my terribly outdated journal at last! :dance: So, erm...


Who is the person (someone in your life presently) whom has inspired you to be whom you are today?

My grandda, his stories and words of wisdom have helped me get to a place where I know I'll be OK emotionally no matter what happens, as long as I'm honest, friendly and hardworking. A bit of an optimistic outlook perhaps, but it's working so far!

What is the title of your favorite tome? (book)
I am a fiction bookworm, and so 'top 100 books' would probably be easier... but if I was in a burning-house/desert-island situation, it'd probably be LOTR, for its comprehensiveness, length, depth and world... okay fine that's three books but shhhh

Vanilla or Chocolate?
Depends on the day! :D I'm feeling vanilla ice cream right now. :iconvaniicecreamplz:

Do you know what a $2.00 bill is?
Nuh-uh. :icondeathstareplz:

What is your most favorite television show?
F.R.I.E.N.D.S, for old times' sake! :icondummywooplz:
But also Revenge, OUAT, Dr Who, Star Trek, Morse, Ashes to Ashes, Blackadder Sherlock, Merlin, Miranda, New Girl, Green Wing, Being Human, Misfits... Vampire Diaries I must admit... RASTAMOUSE. So I watch far too much TV...

What is your favorite flower?
So I have a soft spot for the common ones- roses, lilies, passionfruit etc... But there's something magical about Lily of the Valley. It's pretty tiny and modest, plain white and it looks so delicate but it's hella resilient. I remember finding a teeny patch of it when I was little and it was like walking on on a different (miniature!) world.. haha, soppy, I know ^^;

Do you watch cartoons? If so, what are your top five favorites?
Avatar, Ben 10, Scooby, MLP, Charlie and Lola... :blush:

Dog or Cat?
Both! :huggle: Nyancat or omgdogs, that is the question.

Where do you want to go with all your heart?

What's your favorite season?
Autumn (:

What's your favorite pokémon?
Eevee >w<

What is your most precious possession?
Memory box or my dear sweet old laptop~

How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
I am a receptacle for emotions and ideas.

Is there an author and/or artist that has been a big inspiration in your life/work?
Tamora Pierce. Terry Pratchett. David Eddings. Robert O'Brien. Peter Dickinson. Eva Ibbotson. Cornelia Funke. Garth Nix. Philip Pullman. William Nicholson. John Green. Elizabeth Goudge. Wendy Cope. Joanne Harris. Paul Coelho. SF Said. Stephen Fry. Steve Jobs.
Shaun Tan. Lois Van Baarle. Gustav Klimt. Charlie Bowater. Chuck Close. Tran Nguyen. John Waterhouse. Sabrina Ward Harrison. Viria.
Rudy Francisco. Suli Breaks. Anastasia Skuktorova.

...Sorry, these questions are impossible.

Name one thing that you feel you have improved upon in the last year art or not, it doesn't matter.
Realistic portraits

Name your favourite manga or comic. Or both.

What was the scariest thing you've ever seen?
Walking in on someone cutting in the girls' bathroom at school and not having a clue what to say that would make them feel OK about the situation.

Who is your very favorit deviant?
This is a terribly difficult question, but in term of artistic skills, :iconloish: whose work I have been in love with since I stumbled across some of her oekaki back in my first year of internet use... :love:

What is your favourite musical instrument?
Gee-tar. Now if only I could play it... :giggle: ^^;

I feel like I don't want to impose on anyone by tagging them, so feel free to... tag yourselves...? ^^;

Hello my dear watcher! :hug:
I thought about that I never really thanked you for your support!
My heart truly is filled with warmth and happiness because of you!
I´m so thankful that you like my art, ´cause my goal is to move the emotions of people and if it´s the case that you be moved by my art and feel something, maybe be happy, than I´m really glad and thankful because than I know that I´ve done something worthy.
The reason why I keep posting art isn´t only because I want to improve my skills and want some critique, no I want to see that I can make people happy, such people as you, so I´m keeping posting art for you!  
Thanks a lot for encouraging me!

Have a great weekend!
Best regards,
