I am an artist, and am currently concentrating on my paintings. A lot of my work is inspired by different versions of The Phantom of the Opera, and I’d like to do an illustrated version of the book someday. I also do a lot of work based on original ideas and stories. I want to be a children's book writer/illustrator some day.
Have a look at my interests list for other things that, well, interest me. :)
(all of the following is listed in no particular order, and is subject to change as I remember things I've forgotten to add)
Books & Writers: Strange Stories, Amazing Facts; Rod Serling; Roald Dahl; Phantom, by Susan Kay; James Herriot; Marguerite Henry; Jan Harold Brunvand; C.S. Lewis;
Shows: Doctor Who; Antiques Roadshow; Twilight Zone; Sherlock; QI; Jeopardy!
TV channels: PBS; National Geographic; CNN; TCM
Musicals: My Fair Lady; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; Doctor Dolittle; Phantom of the Opera; Rent
Music: John Denver; David Bowie; Scissor Sisters; The Beatles; Matchbox 20/Rob Thomas; Queen; Tal Bachman; a lot of random songs from various musicians. My last.fm is here, but I listen to my mp3 player more than my computer, so some of the numbers are not completely accurate: http://www.last.fm/user/RJDaae
Video Games: Quidditch World Cup; Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time; The Beatles: Rock Band; Sims 2; Sims 3; Yoshi Story
Things I collect: armadillos; books; tiny figures of animals; old rough Breyer horses; vintage hats; more books; random tidbits that I can use in a costume; jackets; giraffes; Steiff; John Denver stuff; LP records
In closing, here's a picture that combines three of my likes: CNN, costuming, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang:
(Maybe some time I'll post the picture of the Phantom and Christine anchoring on CNN. ;) )
