I Came, I dAmned, I Founded - Interview1) First off, can you tell us a little bit about yourself!I Came, I dAmned, I Founded - Interview by leaf-lover
:#headsick: is equally owned and run by roguequeen, aritical, and awhisperoflight, and always has been. aritical handles the bot and account behind the chat, awhisperoflight moderates the members, and roguequeen mods the members and keeps the visitors and members alike as entertained as possible. When it comes to the room we consider how we manage and handle things. We are a power group and equally divide the work between each other. Personally, behind all the work, we're all close friends and talk often. We do things like pick a Disease of a Month, write a monthly journal, features, and change the group names together. All three of us are fun-loving and slightly crazy (or maybe more than slightly).
2) When did you first discover dAmn, and can you remember the first room you ever chatted in?
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Way too long - 11 years.
What does your username mean?
At the time I started using it, I was a huge Inu-Yasha fan. That's really about it.
Describe yourself in three words.
Software knitting nerd.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
I don't remember, but it's not actually the one that shows as oldest in my gallery. It was a terrible photo-manipulation of some type.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Artisan Crafts > Knitting
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
What wouldn't I want to learn?
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't actually have one.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I've already met quite a few deviants in person. Basically, anyone I've interacted with regularly is someone I'd like to meet.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
There are a few deviants who have impacted my life; some of my best friends I met through dA. I'm going to pick on Zeros-Elipticus, though. I've known Elliott since I was 16 or 17, so that's about ten years. I think I was 19 when I first met him in person. His parents let him bring home a totally strange girl to stay with them for a week. We had tons of fun. We (accidentally) got his car towed. There have been a few times where we didn't talk much because we were busy with school or work or whatever, but it has never affected how close we are.
Then, on 1 Aug, I was one of his grooms-people. I totally cried during the wedding when he was reading his vows to his wife. The two of them are an absolutely wonderful couple and I love them both.
And, if not for him, I never would have joined OkC, where I met my husband.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wood or steel knitting needles. Soft yarn.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Er... I don't have one.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Getting my ass saved by switchbladeserenade when she showed up the first devMeet I planned. I had no idea what I was doing.
