Perferred Media: I tend to stick with pencil and paper, intersperced with Sakura Microns and coloured pencils for traditional media. Digital consists of Photoshop, openCanvas, and Painter.

I've yet to take an actual art course. All my drawing skills comes from observing others drawing, copying poses from other sources, a few tutorials, and lots and lots of practice. I want to take a course at somepoint in time so I can play with media other than pencil and paper.

I love to read. I tend to read anything that I can get my hands on, but have been reading more fanfiction online than published works offline due to finacial constraints. Currently published authors that I favor are Tanya Huff, Neil Gaiman, and Terry Pratchett.

Mythology has fascinated me for a long while, in particular Greek, Roman, and Norse. It's been a bit since I've done any major research so I've forgotten a bunch, but there are plans in the future to refresh.

Cosplay is slowly but steadily taking over my fandom life and budget. So much fun, but so much work and cash....

I'm also staff with AC³, a convention here in Ottawa. It takes a lot of work, but it's worth it (or so I keep telling myself).
