For those of you who have been regular readers of 2f’s Fanfic Message Board, welcome to my new fiasco. This ‘blog’ will give me a better platform to sound off from on, well, basically anything — not just the project of the month (currently: Sailor Nothing). You’ll still be able to post comments without having to register anywhere, there are links at the bottom of each message to read/write comments.
For those of you who are like ‘The hell is he talking about? Who is this guy?’ since you found this journal by other means than following a link from my projects, allow me to describe myself.
I am an artist.
Please put the axe down. I swear I’m not a pretentious black beret wearing bongo beating sensitive artist who ‘just can’t deal with people’ and ‘nobody understands me’. I’m an artist in the most pop culture mongering, eyeball-grabbing, I’m-doing-this-for-people to-enjoy-it-and-not-in some-snooty-art-for-arts-sake-sort-of-way type of artist. But, like all artists, I have a tendency to get all ranty and emotional and embarassingly personal because I wanna express my bad self.
Primarily I do writing, but since I’m a net.junkie and I’ve been trying to push the limits of what the web can do for creativity, occasionally you’ll see me talking about graphics or online communities or whatnot. I like to study other cool beans projects people have set up and comment on them. I like to examine pop culture trends and explain my views. And, occasionally, I’ll go off on some personal tangent about my Tragic Past(tm) but I’ll try to keep that to a minimum. Point is, you’ll get a little of everything when you read this journal, and hopefully it’ll be interesting enough to keep you around.
If you dig this, post a comment. This isn’t just a Dear Diary, it’s a message board. You can also drop me a line; my e-mail link should be obfuscated, but clickable. Hearing from other people is what makes the internet feel like you aren’t just casting words out into the void, after all.
More to come.
