ABOUT THE WEBMASTERBACK
i'm rocket! (this is a pseudonym as giving you my real name lets you magically control me) i'm not so good at writing about myself but i'll try my best. i'm a twenty year old art student and internet clown living in the midwest. i have a number of interests, all of which quite honestly consume my whole life. for one, i'm super passionate about retro pop culture and technology. i love to talk about it, look at it, of course use it, and i especially love to hear about the history of these things. it's one of my goals to make a little retro room and art studio for playing my old games and watching old shows in their intended formats. i truly believe old computers and consoles are irreplacable! in addition i've got a great love for the indie web and love to see the creativity of others on full display.
you've probably gathered from looking at this site that i REALLY love pokemon. my favorite pokemon are eevee, wobbuffet, meowth, and the shinx line, and my favorite characters are TEAM ROCKET!!! i love team rocket so much, i'm definitely at least in the top 5 most deranged team rocket fans on this entire earth. i collect things related to all of my favorites, mostly plushies, and looove to make art of them, too. ask me about pokemon trivia! i've got a lot of interesting lore facts in this brain of mine.
besides that, i'm into some other things too. i'm a big fan of expressing myself through fun fashion, and i love to listen to music. (though, who doesn't?) i wouldn't consider myself a furry since i'm not super involved in the subculture, but i really like furry stories and art! i enjoy taking fun photos for myself, good snacks, and sleep. i'm into a few tv shows, currently breaking bad, better call saul, hunter x hunter, and cardcaptor sakura. i like games too, like pokemon, (duh) animal crossing, and ace attorney.
i'm also currently an art student; a sophomore studying for my BFA in comic art! i'm not fully sure what i want to do as a career yet, but i do know that i want to go into art as a career. my long term goal is to be able to sell my own art and comics as my full-time job. some specific artists i'd cite as major influences are osamu tezuka, bryan lee o'malley, rumiko takahashi, and CLAMP. in a more general sense, i'm inspired by online pop culture from the late 90s to the early 2000s, though i also find inspiration in classic anime and horror media. i want to channel that carefree spirit that surrounded media during that time, and specifically with my more macabre works, i want to highlight the beauty in the horrific. i also pretty much always incorporate queer themes into my work; as a queer artist it's very important to me and i want to make the kind of art that i want to see! which in my case is silly gay love stories...
anyways. i'm pretty shy, but i don't bite, so feel free to say hello on my site profile or on my guestbook. ^_^
