6. DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN CLUBS' CONTESTS HERE ON DA?
Occasionally. Most of my artwork lately isn't the type of stuff I would put on dA anyway, but when I do, I will submit to a group/club if I can.
7. WHAT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR SUBMISSION?
This still makes me "wut" on some level because this is basically the only vector art in my entire gallery and obviously not my normal subject matter. Casey is endlessly amused that of all my works, it was the peepbeeps that got me a DD. LOL
8. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE NON-ANIME TV SHOWS?
Well, I don't really watch TV because I just don't have the time, nor have I ever been much of an anime fan. I do, however, listen
to a lot of material while I'm doing homework! My favorites are currently Radiolab
, This American Life
, TED Talks
, and the PBS programs Nature
, and occasionally Frontline
. Yep, I like documentaries
If you like documentaries too, I would recommend the sites Documentary Heaven
and Top Documentary Films
, although they will post just about anything, so take all of the content as 100% truth. I LOVE NPR podcasts, and recently discovered a ton more
that I've barely scratched the surface of. Seriously, go check them out.
Wow, so many links.
9. WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU WISH YOU COULD DRAW BETTER?
Hahaha... where do I start? I really want to learn human anatomy more and improve my general sketching game. I also really want to step up my color theory skills and get better at rendering light and shadow. So, basically everything...
10. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Spring and Fall, actually
I love Autumn in general and I'm usually eager to get back to school after a summer of working random jobs (although that's not really going to be part of my life anymore... D
. Spring is always such a wonderful, refreshing change after long months of Oregon's overcast winter skies and rain.
11. RAIN OR SUN?
Sun when I'm outside, and rain to fall asleep to
12. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF MUSIC?
If I had to sum it up, I guess rock? That includes classic and some current bands. Rock forms about 75% of what I listen to with the rest being a random scattering.
13. PC OR MAC
14. ANIME OR MANGA?
15. COKE OR PEPSI?
I'm not big on soda
16. READ OR TV?
Reading, without a doubt.
17. HOW MANY HOURS A DAY DO YOU SPEND ON DA?
That totally depends. On breaks from school, I love leaving comments and starting conversations with people, so maybe 1.5 hours a day? During school it's maybe 2 hours a week, lol.
18. NAME A TALENT.
When it comes to using Blender, I think my life is sponsored by Murphy's Law
19. FLASH OR TRADITIONAL CARTOONS?
I think I'd have to go with hand-drawn. A 1-hr movie has 86,400 frames. Even with modern technology and tweening, that's still a ton of work. I can't imagine doing that by hand!
20. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT?
I'm not big on fast food either... somehow it always makes me sick! I really like trying food from food carts, though (does that make me a hipster? Oh lord I sound like a hipster
21. WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FAVORITE BOOKS?(NOT MANGAS)
There's no way I could answer this question, so instead I'll leave my three favorite drawing books:Anatomy for the ArtistColor and Light: A guide for the realist painterAnimal Anatomy for Artists
And Art Fundamentals
because it's a great, well-rounded information source on the basic elements of art
22. WII OR PLAYSTATION?
I don't own a console, so PC?
23. NAME 3 OF YOUR FAVORITE BANDS/SINGERS.
AC/DC, Beatles, Blue October, Cat Stevens, Eagles, Muse, Pink Floyd, Queen. Those are just a few I listen to on a regular basis. Pandora is actually one of my main sources of music these days and I'm always looking for new bands.

26. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SMILEY?
but I use
27. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF PIE?

My record is 57 hours straight and I hope to never, ever have to do that again.
29. DO YOU GO ON DA A LOT?
30. ARE YOU A MEMBER ON ANY OTHER SITES BESIDES DA?
YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, and Furaffinity. I only really use Facebook and dA, though.
31. DO YOU COSPLAY?
I have no desire to cosplay but oddly enough I LOVE building costumes... weird.
32. FRUITS OR SWEETS?
Both! I eat sweets more than I should, but I also love trying new and weird fruits.
33. BUTTERED, PLAIN, OR SALTED POPCORN?
All of the above. I'm a popcorn aficionado! I usually have it popped in olive oil and lightly salted, but coconut oil is great too.
34. HAVE YOU SKIPPED SCHOOL?
Probably, but very rarely. I worked out that each class at college costs me $60 per session, so there's no way I'm wasting that investment unless I have to.
35. HAVE YOU BEEN ON A PLANE?
Yep yep! I thought it might be scary, but mostly it's just boring and somewhat uncomfortable. Red eye flights suck x.x
36. HAVE YOU SWAM IN AN OCEAN?
I live on the coast, so yes. I have swam in the ocean many times
37. HAVE YOU BEEN ICE SKATING?
Yes, but that was like 10 years ago or something

I don't know since my family doesn't really take vacations. I really enjoy weekend trips home since we live on the coast, though.
39. EVER BEEN ON TV?
Not that I know of
40. FAVORITE SALAD AND DRESSING?
Caprese Salad salad (tomatoes, mozzarella, and fresh basil on top of spring greens. We use reduced balsamic vinegar and olive oil as a dressing). I also have a Southwest BBQ salad that I love (beans, corn, salsa, some crunched tortilla chips, cheese, chicken/steak/whatever, with a light drizzle of ranch dressing and bbq sauce) and another amazing asian pasta/spinach salad recipe. I really like making my own dressings, so we eat a lot of salad
41. WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX?
Usually some form of art while Skyping with my friends. If they aren't available on Skype, I'll listen to some of the aforementioned materials.
42. WHAT IS THE LAST FILM YOU SAW IN THE THEATER?
The live action Cinderella. I love going to the movies and 90% that I watch are seen in theaters
43. FAVORITE SANDWICH?
There's this Vietnamese/French cuisine place in downtown that makes a KILLER Bahn Mi sandwich
44. IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD…
Holy cow. Well for starters I really want to visit some more big cities in the US. New York was a blast and I want to explore my country more. After that, I want to go to Milan for Design Week. I'd also love to visit Rome and Greece for the architecture, and Paris for the art. Basically I want to travel the world
45. FAVORITE TIME OF THE DAY?
Either the morning (8 AM - 11 AM) because I am the most productive, or 5-ish because I'm usually done with class/work and I can go home and relax.
46. WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE LITTLE?
My earliest memory was a ballerina, but artist/illustrator has been a common theme for years
47. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE NOW?
I have no idea, actually. I know I want to work with design, but I'm not sure of the exact direction. I imagine I'll start out with larger companies as an industrial designer, but I'm also interested in UX. I don't want to get stuck in manufacturing, that's for sure.
48. IF YOU COULD EAT WITH ONE PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Barack Obama so at the end of the meal, I could non-sarcastically say, "Thanks, Obama"
For real though, I think it would be awesome to sit down with Adam Savage. I don't watch Myth Busters that much, but I'm a huge fan of the DIY/Maker movement and I think he would have a lot of great things to say
49. WHAT CHARACTER WOULD YOU HATE TO BE STUCK IN A ROOM WITH?
Beedle from the LOZ seiries. I would need to pour cement in my ears
50. WHEN IS YOUR BIRTHDAY?
51. FAVOURITE TYPE OF ICE CREAM?
There's a creamery in town that makes the weirdest ice cream flavors like Carrot and Beets or Sunday Breakfast that somehow had eggs and bacon in it (???). I love trying the wacky things they come up with because the're somehow always delicious.
52. LAST BOOK YOU READ?
I'm currently working my way through the first Game of Thrones. Before that, it was Gone Girl.
53. WHICH STORE WOULD YOU MAX OUT A CREDIT CARD AT?
Uh... Amazon? Otherwise it would be an art shop.
54. DO YOU BUY / SELL / BOTH ON EBAY.
Nope, nope, and nope. No real reason other than I can order most things from Amazon so I don't need to branch out to another site. I also don't care for participating in auctions.
55. WHAT IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING PEOPLE ASK YOU?
What is product design?
We design products. Hence the name, "product design".
Blenders, shoes, cars, electronics. You know, products.

61. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT ANOTHER PERSON?
Their face? It depends, some people have eye-catching features.
62. FAVORITE SPORT TO PLAY?
I don't play sports but racquetball would be fun if I didn't suck at it so much. Group training is fun too, but that's not a sport at all.
63. FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR?
January 3rd, the day Uncle Bob declared corn to be glorious!
64. HUGS OR KISSES?
Cuddles with popcorn and a movie
65. VANILLA OR CHOCOLATE?
<--this emoticon was already here and it's beautiful
66. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
It's not a board game but Apples to Apples is one of the best games in existence.
67. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Freshly ground coffee, the ground after a sudden rain, fresh baked bread/cookies. Wow, I'm sounding more and more hipsterish by the minute D:
68. WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Art/design shows. I always come back feeling so excited and inspired!
69. DO YOU HAVE ANY PIERCINGS?
Yep, four. If they didn't take so long to heal, I'd probably get 1-3 more in my ears and I've always though small nose piercings were cute.
70. HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE?
Two brothers and two sisters
71. BACON BITS OR CROUTONS?
Fake bacon bits are gross, so croutons.
72. FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK?
Friday? I have the whole weekend ahead of me to enjoy
73. FAVORITE PHRASE?
74. FAVORITE RESTAURANT?
A Thai place around the corner. I actually don't know how good the rest of their food is because for the four years we've gone there, I've only ever ordered their Pad Se Ew. It's so amazing I can't bring myself to order anything else.
75. FAVORITE ANIMAL?
Survey, why you do dis? There are too many actual animals that I love, so I'll say my favorite fantasy species are dragons.
76. FAVORITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE?
77. FAVORITE THING TO DO WHEN IT'S RAINING?
78. FAVORITE DISNEY CHARACTER?
79. DO YOU LIKE COFFEE? IF SO, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BRAND?
Coffee is life. Seriously, I attribute my success in school to the copious amounts of coffee that have accompanied me on my way. I prefer a freshly ground, freshly roast medium roast and there are plenty of local places where I can get some
If I get a fancy coffee drink, it would probably be a latte or if I'm feeling fancy, maybe a mocha. I take my coffee with cream and sugar because I'm a wimp and I don't care for drip coffee as much.
If I had to pick a brand, I would say I go to Dutch Bros the most.
