This LJ has evolved from it's original purpose (as a means of keeping track of art and artwork commissions) into a personal space for updates on my largely boring, mundane, day-to-day life.
So who am I? Fair question, that.
I am a 30-year-old artist, currently working in a dog grooming salon (it is now official, I am a petstylist!). I am a masochist and a submissive, and have a keen interest in pony play. I'm a liberal conservative with a love of quality firearms, art, cats, dogs, horses, tea, constrictor snakes, good music and the occasional video game binge. I have recently taken up brewing my own alcohol (thus far with little success).
Oh, and let me say it now, before you read further...I AM A FURRY. Deal with it or GTFO.
If you are not a pet-lover or animal-lover, leave now. I and my roommate Kaija live in a really shitty hole-in-the-wall apartment medium-sized house with our beloved pets:
My critters: Cricket; black spayed Chihuahua/Dachshund dog Yvaine; copper-eyed tortoishell spayed Persian cat Ember; green-eyed tortoishell spayed Munchkin cat Cheynni; yellow-eyed orange mackerel tabby spayed cat (domestic shorthair) Bingerton; tri-color neutered American Cocker Spaniel dog
Kaija's critter: Blackjack; black neutered male Miniature Schnauzer dog Bathory, yellow-eyed black spayed cat (domestic longhair)
We also live with a lot of smaller "cage" pets, mostly reptiles but also rats, rabbits and insects.
On Monday, November 15th of 2010, my beloved Shadow, a beautiful and sweet-natured green-eyed tortoishell British Shorthair cat, was humanely euthanized due to complications from malignant cancer. She is deeply loved and will be forever missed.
Last year, my wonderful Merlot was taken from me; he had immune system issues that prevented him from fighting off a devastating illness. He was far too young, only a year and a month old. He will be very missed and I will always wonder what great times we are cheated out of from his untimely passing.
Herptile "Wish List"...snakes I want to buy or trade for. Got something I want? Let me know!
The following are the webcomics I read...I'm EXCESSIVELY picky and only read what I REALLY like and which also has quality artwork, and these are the best I have ever seen. Seriously, check them out! (listed in no particular order, btw)
