I don't know what to call my art/graphic design blog. And I don't have a fancy name that sounds good like yours. Mine is weird and hard to pronounce. Can you help or give any advice?

I lucked out with a simple alliteration for a name at birth, but if you don’t like your own given one — or you question how marketable it might be — just come up with literally any other one you want. Charles Dodgson, Onika Maraj, Dominikos Theotokpulos, and Aubrey Graham are just a few people who did so, and things worked out alright for them.

That said, I do have some suggestions for artist pseudonyms:

  • Dirk Chestchin
  • Ella Telenovella
  • Garbáge
  • Paint Panther
  • Ceyoncé
  • Brock Ketchum
  • uhuh
  • Eggplant Emoji
  • Kony
  • Salazar Gringot
  • Ibu
  • Roy Biv
  • Samantha Spratt

Best of luck with your #brand

Soon after, Sehun posted a derpy picture of Chen lying down that was taken at just the right moment to make Chen look funny. His picture had the caption:

Funky Chen. Jongdae hyung. Happy birthday I love you hyung is the best!!

EXO-L’s around the world have been celebrating Chen’s birthday, using hashtags, among other things, to share their love. #HappyChenDay, which has been trending worldwide on Twitter all day, #ItsOkayThatsCHEN, #종대야생일축하해, and #KimJongDay have all trended around the world as fans celebrate the singer’s birthday. 

Chen will be spending his birthday with fans and members, as EXO is currently in Beijing, China for their “Lost Planet Tour.” The group will then continue onto Japan in November for the next leg of their concert.
