Favorite cartoon from when you were younger?

Probably Clangers or Ivor the Engine on VHS. I made up a joke about it.

“Why did Ivor the Engine go to the doctor’s? Because he had a chesty-cough, chesty-cough, chesty-cough, chesty-cough!”

aaahahaha do you see?

Favorite cartoon right now [if you have one; if not: Favorite current TV show in general?]

Well I’ve started watching Hayao Miyazaki stuff, so probably Princess Mononoke out of those, but I guess that’s not quite what you’re thinking… probably still Ivor the Engine, ahah. What other kids show includes the Welsh Antiquarian Society‽

Best present you received for the holidays?

A new full-size drawing tablet that is actually good quality! *strokes* And a book on Arthurian legends.

Best present you GAVE for the holidays? [OH HO]

I made me mum a mix of classic dance/club/electro music a put it on a CD with a hand-drawn cover and sleeve

If you’re a writer/artist/etc., what is the most difficult thing for you to do in terms of working creatively?


Are you pondering what I’m pondering?


What would you attempt to accomplish if you knew you could not fail?

My dearest wish is to become known as an artist, so, that. To be successful in the art world.

What do you think of when you think of California?

…I don’t appear to have any concept of California. Other than I get ‘California Soul’ in my head which is awesome.

O U.

*ahem* African or European? (YUO MADE ME SAY ITT)

Current top 5 celebrity faves?

Mark Gatiss, Derren Brown, Viv Stanshall, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle aND ALL THE OTHERS YOU EVIL PERSON it’s just those are the ones that populated my dreams last night (this is a common occurrence)

Was 2012 a good year for you?

What was your favourite movie you watched in 2012?

Oh What A Lovely War.

Favourite genre of music? Or one of your favourites?

Oh there is literally no genre I don’t like at least some of. But I got majorly into electroswing this year!

If you could go to any place in the world this instant, this minute, this second, where would it be?

What’s your dream job?

If I could magically suddenly know one, then I guess German, it’s a lovely language.

What do you expect from 2013?

The only thing I can be certain of is that college is going to be even more demanding yet even more satisfying but on the whole it’s going to be very chaotic, trying to find a place to live… so yeah. Kinda excited and aprehensive.

What’s your favourite kind of weather?

Windy, sunshine but with a good cloud scattering

What was the first song/single/album you ever bought with your own money?

Plastic Beach by Gorillaz. …but I’d been ‘getting hold of’ music for a long time before, probably starting with The Divine Comedy.

What is it about Tumblr that you enjoy?

The freedom to say those things you probably wouldn’t say anywhere else. And freedom from grammar. And the general sense of humour. And IT’S OKAY TO BE OBSESSED WITH THEM EVEN IF THEY’RE REALLY OLD/DEAD

Did you have a nice Christmas/New Year? ^_^

Gorgeous, thanks!

What’s your favourite book?

nnnnNNNNrrrrrr so many. My usual answer is Good Omens, though.

Which celebrity/person of note do you admire the most and why?

Admirethe most? Hmm. …I’m gonna maybe change that slightly tolooking up tothe most, as in, as a role model, if that’s okay? Bucause I have a one-person answer to that - Terry Gilliam. I genuinely feel we have the same perspective on things - both in image perception and ideology - and I want to show it as confidently as he has.

We had some fish once. They died. I want a cat but our landlord won’t allow it.
