It's meme time!  

Deer -

They're so lovely and adorable! I'd really like to be able to actually get up close to one (not really likely to happen in nature though). Unless something like this happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RbugqfpZhM&feature=related. So cute...!

Loveless -

Loveless just needs a post of it's own, there's so much worth saying. I feel like Loveless is so largely about ethics, especially in relation to love (not necessarily in a romantic sense though, the love we share with friends, relatives and other people in our lives in worth talking about too!). I think that's kind of important to understand my emotional reactions to it, it's not just that I care about the characters (though I certainly do!), it's what they represent as well.

I need a friend to read it with me so I can just pour all thoughts and emotions out with them when new chapters come out (and occasionally when they don't come out!).

Sims -

I mostly play in one neighborhood, though I started a second one for the build a city challenge. Most of my sims have existed in my game for at least a year I think, so I feel fairly attached to them. Currently I'm attempting to create a generation of adult sims that is *mostly* born in game. An entire generation will never be completely possible unless I want to kill off my vampire sims, and that is not happening.

Artists that inspire me -

I keep thinking I should make an inspiration post at some point, but until then have some links!

Margret Meehan
Janice Jakielski
Backa Carin Ivarsdotter
Amanda McCavour
Tom Price
Katy Stone
Beili Liu
Ran Hwang

I'm only listing 3-D and installation artists because I feel that's what's driving me to make art. There's a ton of art and artists that I really adore, but this is kind of the stuff I look at and say "I want to make stuff like that too!"

A little note: When you look through Backa Carin Ivarsdotter's work, be sure to watch the "In Memorian" video, it's definitely a favorite of mine. Watching her pieces in movement is pretty important, I think.

Boba Tea -

It's so very wonderful, I should have it more often! The first time I tried boba tea I really didn't like it, I found it to be far too sweet (to be fair though, a lot of the flavors it comes in do cross that line for me). I'm not sure what the first flavor I tried was now, it was a long time ago. The green tea boba at the Royal Teahouse is amazing though. It's not overly sweet, it's fairly mellow.

Bright Colors -

MAKE THE WORLD GO 'ROUND. No, but really. What would my pixel art be without eye-blinding shades of pastel neon colors? I rather like well thought out uses of bright color in art and especially with interior design.

These guys also make amazing use of bright colors: http://www.pipandpop.com.au/#

School -

I really love school most of time. I even miss academic courses, I just like learning stuff. Sometimes I'm concerned I don't have enough time left in school (which seems to be the opposite of everyone else feels). I just found my new focus in art and I kinda feel like I still have a lot to learn.

Pyro -

Cute, dangerous and fun to play as! :] Perfect! I love it when people draw pyro being super expressive with the mask on, it makes me happy. I also like to see how people draw unmaksed pyro, it's really neat and there are so many cool pyros. Also, MEET THE PYRO COMES OUT THIS YEAR OMG!! Pretty excited about that.

Ooo, that turning yarn in the "In Memorian" video is super creepy. It's neat what kind of effect you can accomplish with such simple materials.

Also, just think about how much you'd freak out if a deer actually did come through your front door like that, lol. :)
