Tell us about how you pass the next 600 years as you race to find a cure while going on cool adventures with history’s biggest names

Myrtle Luna Lucía Ryder Rosales

  • has a masters in botany, was planning on getting her phd but then the andromeda initiative happened
  • biotic
  • sarcastic, opinionated, adventurous, independent, unrealistically optimistic and hopeful, artistic, easily stressed, competitive, imaginative, unpredictable 
  • “Luna was a strange and rare creature. Full of what seemed like an endless wonder and optimism. Although, most people would never see that side of her due to the fact that her natural state seemed to be isolation, her preferred method of socialisation being keeping everyone at an arms length. She was small and spiky. I’d be tempted to compare her to a hedgehog if I didn’t know that she’d object to being compared to something so mundane and ordinary. So perhaps an echidna. Or a puffer fish.”

  • her fashion sense can best be described as “a mess”

  • often seen wearing oversized jumpers

The Artful Truth: Advice from a Molecular Biologist turned Art Director

I used to be a scientist. More specifically I used to be a molecular biologist working at UCLA on the track to go to grad school, pursue a PhD and eventually cure cancer. But now I’m an Art Director and have been working as a professional concept artist in the entertainment industry for the past 4 years. Somewhere in between there I did something right (or wrong if the human race was depending on me to cure cancer), and I’d like to share some of that knowledge with you.

So what makes my advice different from any of the other artists you might follow?

I was 25 years old when I took my first drawing class.

As much as I wish I had started when I was younger, the truth of the matter is that I didn’t but that allowed me to use my scientific mind to learn to draw and paint in a very analytical way.

I feel this gives me a different perspective than the average professional because I was still able to establish myself as an artist without any previous drawing or painting experience.

I don’t claim to have all the answers, but what I do claim to have is thoughtful advice for both students and young professionals about what it takes to study art, create a portfolio, establish yourself professionally and set up your own path to pursue your goals.

I plan to post advice (in no particular order) under the tag of “The Artful Truth” as often as I can but at least on a weekly basis. I welcome comments or questions to add to the discussion and I hope you’ll get something out of it :)

Shinigami are morbid folks in general

Everyone says Sascha is a creepy one, but in fact almost all Shinigami do have a few screws loose. Do I have to remind you how Grell butchered those prostitutes (see: Mary Jane Kelly) and poetically talks about blood, Ronald looked like he was having so much fun grinding up the heads of the Bizarre Dolls and Eric slaughtered hundreds of humans to cure his beloved one Alan? Being a race who oversees death 24/7, this isn’t surprising. Poor William might be one of the few fully sane Shinigami out there, no wonder he’s so stoic the whole time, ha.
