Diathene's picture
I'm 27 years old, working for a publishing company as an in-house illustrator, mostly dealing with non-fiction/educational books. I live in NE England with my husband and four cats. If there's one thing FAC has taught me, it's that cats are better than children.

I like: Watchmen (<3<3) Firefly, World of Warcraft, X-Men/X-verse, Robin Hobb/Meghan Lindholme, William Gibson, etc etc. Am an unapologetic geek who periodically fails to use pronouns. Adores wordplay, etymology, idioms and phraseology - the best way to delight me is to tell me an awesome-sounding obscure word.

Purple is my favourite colour and tomatoes are my least favorite food. INTERESTINNNNG.

Am crap at small talk. Best not to bother trying really.

Music- Rasputina, Scarling, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Ministry, Sunna, Skinny Puppy, Faith No More, Louis XIV, Chris Cornell/Soundgarden, VAST, Spacehog, Wildhearts, etc etc.

I might be open to requests for original characters - as long as they have an interesting design. However, I'm not interested in drawing you a character from a fandom I know nothing about (and therefore don't care about). This includes 99.9% of anime/manga by the way. Sorry.


PLEASE don't crit me with huge-wall-of-text-chain-post crap as a comment. I'll only delete it. THANKS.


P.S. I'm not as grumpy as I sound. ;_;

DiatheneIt wasn't really a surprise since I watch pretty much everything Peter Davison is in, so I'm more used to how he looks now than how he looked back then, even. Still pretty good for 56 if you ask me ;)

Oh, and: XD

hvite_devilHi there. I was just wondering if I may ask you a question.
If you're willing to answer that would've been great!

Is it wise to focuse on getting a drawing job or not? I mean economic. I'm really into drawing, but I'm not sure if it's such a good idea to take my drawingskills to the next level if it'll just be a waste of time.

I'd be very, very happy if you could answer that question since you work as an illustrator.

DiatheneI got my job completely by accident, so I'm not sure if I'm the best person to ask. I don't even have an illustration degree ;)

hvite_deviloh! Okey then. Thank you for taking some of your time to answer me. I appreciate it.
Take care and have a great day! :)
