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

Tell me about it. San Fransisco is uninhabitable, with the rent range and lack of steady job resources. I'm going to be looking at the market real quick here as well.
Why cant I have a skill like you and live off talent?

Far too long.
Right on, are you working right now?
I'm still at PlayStation, but I'm going to be let go at the end of the month.
Im applying at a couple other places but nothing insane.
I was thinking I could live off unemployment for a month to focus on myself.

haha yeah, I'm excited for it all though! thanks for the vote of confidence...I'm partially terrified tbh
Edward Sharpe had a couple of songs on the radio a while back, but I like his more indie stuff. It's chill music and mainly talks about love and religion and things like that. Cool topics (:
