Hello, my name is Zara. I'm 34 and I’m an aspiring illustrator from the UK.
I collect stamps, stickers, notebooks, sketchbooks, journalling bits and all things retro. I have an avid love for stationary, which is currently on the borderline-hoarder status, but I adore it all anyway. I am very unorganised but like to kid myself into thinking I am by procrastinating and making to-do lists and schedules. Unfortunately, my art desk spends more time getting re-organised than it does getting used for art.
My favourite music includes; Air, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music, Bowie and a whole bunch of other stuff from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The list is quite endless and also includes classical music and tv themes.
I find it difficult to watch tv shows if they are presently popular. I usually wait at least five years before indulging in such television. My favourite TV shows include; Columbo, Fawlty Towers, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Alan Partridge, Blackadder, Dexter, the original Twilight Zone series, The young Ones and Bottom. I am pretty much a massive fan of all named above.
I am always grateful of any gifts received and I would never judge anybody for their choice of gifts to send. Alas, seeing as it's customary, I'll name a few of my most favourite things, in no particular order...
*Pages for journals
*Handmade items (of any kind)
*Magazine cut-outs (objects/nature/quirky -stuff I can use for collage)
*Stamps (used or new)
*Letters (Hand-written letters are best :) )
*Anything Dexter related (tv show)
*Fun Paperclips/clamps for my scrap journals
*Synthesizers/Machine related photos/art/infographs
*Anything Pee-Wee Herman
*All things Kawaii
*Badges/pins relating to any of the above
I also have a 7-year-old Son who LOVES all things Marvel, especially Spiderman and a 3-year-old Daughter who LOVES Pompompurin and anything cute.
I'd always appreciate any little items for the children
I am new-ish to Swap-Bot, but can promise I will always send my swaps and make sure they fulfil the requirement spec and are sent on time. Each and every swap will be sent with love and care.
