So I clicked on your profile because I love Doctor Who... and then I read that you live in TX and are a writer. Then I did a double-take to make sure I didn't make a username that I forgot about. LOL!
Just wanted to say hey!
What sort of things to you write?
It IS a great avatar. Not only cute, but it reads well and is easily identifiable.
I got into graphic design because I really loved to draw. It's kinda sad how little drawing I actually do though. But if you ever have any questions about the software or anything, just holler.
So what kind of writing do you do? Fiction? Non-fiction? Any particular writers you like? I probably read more from authors on twitter these days than I do in books.
New avatar? I like it!
Ah! Anime I still don't understand. I feel kinda stupid about that. Loved loved loved Spirited Away. And the old Gatchaman cartoons back when they were cheesy Battle of the Planets episodes. But my knowledge doesn't go beyond that. Huge Marvel fan! I can do DC in a pinch. Love the steampunk sensibility.
I forgot you mentioned you had a sister. She's got a nice turn of a phrase. Think we'll see her on here someday?
I mostly do print design - brochures, posters, billboards, educational materials. I spent a lot of years working for a tax company (Any guesses?) as an inhouse designer because - y'know - taxes and creativity go hand-in-hand. Left that last year and still trying to find a new home.
But I do a bit of web stuff and I've done a lot of screen related ads and such. Video is likely my achilles' heel. Still lots to learn though.
Why do you ask?
I'm a big fan of the white gown version - that's iconic Leia for me! You guys will make an awesome pair - it oughtta make for some fun banter throughout the night.
Cool that you're carrying on a geeky tradition. My parents were in full adult-mode when I showed up and my father was all business. Mom was always creative and had a great sense of humour but I wouldn't call her geeky. So I think I'm probably a reaction against that.
Just grabbed some of my old Star Wars toys form my parents place this weekend. Not sure what I'll do with them. The Dagobah playset still has it's foamy mud bog!
So mostly sci-fi? Star Wars AND Star Trek? I've never been much of a Trek guy. Any other geeky pastimes?
Hey Manders! I've been seeing a few of your posts on here and just thought I'd stop by and say "Hi!"
You're doing a Leia costume this year? What vintage? The classic white gown with the bun-head? Or something later from the series?
My wife just yesterday settled on Mary Poppins for her costume this year. I was thinking Doctor Octopus but I'm always trying to do my costume last minute so who knows what'll happen.
Took a look at your bio too and I'm curious as to where the geekery/nerdery comes in? I'm a big Star Wars fan too AND I ALSO enjoy sleeping! So it's possible we're somehow related.
