I'm Johnny. I also go by my initials, JQ.
I own a BA in broadcasting, emphasis in audio recording/production. Currently studying for an MFA in illustration (emphasis in graphic novels, but also doing general illustration and concept art). Aside that, I have a solo music project in progress, which I'd describe as a blend of shoegaze, post-punk, indie rock, 80's goth, post-black metal, and more.

A bit more about me:
I'm an '03 oldbie. Live outside San Francisco, but consider the city my home. I'm pretty left-wing, also fairly existentialist. I have a wonderful variety of friends, and am open to all people. Despite my sometimes bombastic demeanor in the forums, I'm really friendly and (usually) polite; I love making new friends.

Some of my major interests include:
* Music. Been to more than 100 shows, seen more than 200 bands. I listen to many styles (punk, metal, hip hop, electronic, indie, experimental, etc), but my forte is post-punk and goth (Joy Division, Bauhaus, etc), which I'm an aficionado at.
* Comic books and graphic novels, thanks to my grandpa. I'm *especially* a Batman nerd. Also, really into Sandman, among others.
* Media studies and criticism,(through my broadcasting education) especially with regards to feminism, LGBT, racism, glass ceilings, media control and human rights, and effects on sociology and psychology. (might sound a strange interest, but I had some great professors)
* Video games, though I don't play as much as i used to. My favorite console is Dreamcast.
* Modelling, I model for my fashion design and photography friends

I'm working on a game currently o: I can show you after I finish it! Teehee. I really like the industry because everyone is pretty awesome haha. Yes!! I've met a lot of artists, and they are absolutely the best. =D They are so goofy and fun to talk to. They never make me feel bad about myself!! It's wonderful =)

Speaking of art, I'm trying to find a style that suits me xD Emphasis on trying hahaha. It'll come to me though!!

Ok!! I'll help you then. =D We'll make the coolest models together, yayyy.
Yeah I think it's really cool and also really funny xD Very simple too! They do it for a lot of games, which I didn't notice when I was younger hahaha. I just recently started noticing when I started programming games for myself haha. I think I might go into game development; I've met a lot of awesome people in game dev! They're pretty awesome people ^__^

I hear you! Whenever I open a 3D modeling program I get so stuck... hahahaha. I don't even know the basics honestly. Let's take a class together! XD

I... think that is a little itty bitty problem XD hahaha. Definitely!! In open world games, all the 3D is crazy!! And it's also funny when it's not 3D, like little shrubs and grass, and they just animate it swaying back and forth lol. I also need to grasp textures better. v 3v They're hard! Especially rock texture haha.

Yeah of course!! Tell me when you update it =D

Yeah xD Some introverts are also unbearable to talk to! Especially in computer science. They act like they know so much more than you and they are better than you that you just want to punch them or something haha. I'm pretty sure I know equal amounts of stuff, give or take a little.
Yeah it's crazy; triangles everywheerrrree, hahaha. Sometimes it is confusing to look at a 3D mesh without the texture on top xD I also get lost in all the tools... wah. Same! Especially in those big gaming companies where all they do is 3D rendering and modeling now. *-* All that work and effort that they put in... it's no wonder that those kind of games take so long to make.

I like it!!! It's really funny and cute! xD And of course, nicely drawn =)

Yeah it is tough. Especially the environment of the people. They aren't really the most friendly or welcoming. They're actually the opposite haha. Since I'm an extrovert, being surrounded by a lot of introverts isn't very easy sometimes. But I think I'll pull through! I want to get into 3D modeling sometime haha. I should learn how to use Blender xP

Oooo, yay! Are you guys going to get a domain any time? o:

I'm studying Computer Science haha. It's tough! But I'm getting through it. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's right for me. But I don't want to switch now since I'm going onto my third year. At least I can do art on the side haha.
