Hello! I have a question about your art shop! I was wondering how much gold it would be to get a full body couple art...I have quite a bit of gold, so if you could let me know, I'll definately buy art from you!!

Hey... hope you are good.
I have been trying to reach you regarding my art order, but mail only holds so long before it deletes itself.
I decided I would just leave a comment instead cause re-writing my pm has become tiresome.
Please pm me when you do see this.
Thanks so much... and again hope you are fine, its been a while. <333

FORMAL BIO:

I'm a professional comic artist/illustrator specialising in the Anime/Manga style. My first graphic novel was Manga Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet (SelfMadeHero). I was a Winner in Tokyopop's UK Rising Stars of Manga competition (2005/06) and Winner in NEO Magazine's 2005 Manga Competition. I designed the official Catgirl mascot for Wacom-Europe's Manga campaign. My artwork features prominently in the British movie, Popcorn (2007) and is currently being used on the set of Channel 4's sitcom The IT Crowd. I contributed to Comic Book Tattoo (Image Comics), Tales inspired by the musician Tori Amos. I'm also featured in DOMO:The Manga (Tokyopop). I've been involved in various art books - I was Lead Artist for the book Draw Manga by Sweatdrop Studios, the leading UK comic collaborative. I've worked with Infinite Ideas on the Manga Life series of self-help comics Find True Love and Be Creative. I'm the artist for Aya.Takeo, a full-colour comic published weekly online from April 2007-2010. I've exhibited artwork in the Kyoto International Manga Museum, London County Hall, London Cartoon Museum, Japanese Embassy and the Manchester URBIS Centre and provided product demonstrations on behalf of Copic, Letraset and Wacom.

AVATAR ART COMMISSIONS
Yes, I do have a mini shop where you can commission me for art in exchange for Gaia gold or rare items *^w^* I'm not cheap though! If you're interested, head over to my thread to find out more: ▓▒░FYREDRAKE░▒▓ quality avi art shop

LOLITA!
I am also a Gothic & Lolita fashionista! I dress lolita pretty much everyday, as my wardrobe is almost entirely goth loli. Innocent World, Angelic Pretty and BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT are my favourite brands.

WHAT ELSE AM I INTERESTED IN?
I enjoy handcoding websites to strict standards (!), reading manga, watching anime, playing videogames, singing classical opera and j-pop. Homebaking (cakes, biscuits and jam) and Oriental Cooking (Chinese, Thai and Japanese). Gothic, Lolita, Punk, Victorian and Couture/bespoke fashions (always overdressed for EVERY occasion). Cosplay (in fact, mostly crossplay - I make a pretty good bishy guy!). Collecting weapons (antiques, replicas and modern sporting varieties of melee and ranged, etc.). Shooting (I ♥ my 0.177 calibre 95K Weirauch break barrel rifle muchly).
