Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I'm a geek, first and foremost. I'm a volcanologist by trade; closet artist by night. I am especially fond of cartoons and cartooning; I'm even working on an American Manga--that is, when I'm not teaching at the local college, grading, playing adjunct geology curator at the local museum, cooking or cleaning.

Current Residence: The Lone Star State
Favourite genre of music: video game, classical, electronic, certain dubstep remixes...
Favourite style of art: Pseudo-realism/mech
Operating System: I hate computers
Shell of choice: my own
Favourite cartoon character: Inspector Gadget, Bushroot, Liquidator, TFP Ratchet
Personal Quote: "YOU MISSED....WITH A CANNON!!!!!!!"

Contest Winners

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 13, 2014, 4:44 PM
Sorry it took so long, but here are the winners for my "Why I am a Fan" contest:

1st place: :iconh-falcon:
2nd place: :iconandalitefacepalm:
3rd place: :iconraphiesgirl1:

For judging, I submitted the entries to members of COGS and my colleagues, and they were instructed to pick the response that they best felt answered the question.  The winners received the most tallies, and in the order listed above.

I would like to thank everyone that participated; all of the responses were very good, and it was hard to narrow it down to the top three.

All of these responses will help me write a book chapter about what it is to be a fan, from a fan's perspective.  Once the book is published, I'll link it to my DA.  It's still a ways away, but research often takes longer than the writing process, so I figured I'd start as early as I possibly could.


Ps. I will formally contact the winners here in a few days to work out prize logistics.  If you were one of the winners listed above, start thinking about what you'd like.  Here's  a link to the original contest journal entry with the prizes to help with your decisions.

  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: My kitty mewing for attention
  • Reading: My computer screen
  • Watching: My Little Pony (don't judge me).
  • Playing: slacker
  • Eating: nothing at the moment
  • Drinking: in the sun

My "to do" list...X3

Working on that right now.  To remove any sort of bias from the results, I'm having my co-workers read the entries and vote on them.  It might take another week to get enough votes to have three clear winners.
