About Me

Hi, my name is Beth, my ambition in life is to become an illustrator, but into all sorts of different arty bits, I recently got a place at university studying illustration, so im that bit closer now. I love doing atc swaps, thats basically the reason I joined this site, It's great to see how other people take a similar theme to you and do something totally different. another site I'm on is Deviantart, I think that sites an amazing source of inspiration and to show others what you can do. I'm new to this site so im trying not too jump straight into too many swaps till I get how this works, I have decided as a rule that i wont join a swap till I have it already made, just because I'm never sure when I will have the time between uni work.

Favorite Books

I love to read, I read various types of books and I have always been open to suggestions, but I'm usually reading some kind of paranormal romance or fantasy... and fairy tales with a twist

picture books too, im a big fan of those, if they have beautiful pics

wish list

  1. steampunkery any little bits of cogs that i can make something out of would be awesome

  2. art of any kind is amazing! Especially traditional, I just love to see what other people come up with. I'd love to have more art to go on my walls :).

  3. If anyone were to make me a plushie/soft toy./dotee... that would be amazing ive never had one.

There really are no colors I hate, I only have sort of colors that go with other colors preferences if that makes sense? for example I like, black with white (especially with tiny zetti style stripes) and that sort of thing, I like bright colors, but I'm also very into grungy gothic colors, and I like sparkle and glitter, you cant really go far wrong with color in my opinion :D
