Hi there folks', I'm Mike, but most folks know me as Midori, call me whatever!
I'm just yer' regular guy... Pfft--- Couldn't type that with a straight face...
First things first I'm nearly blind, I'm completely blind in my right eye and have heavily impaired vision in my left, thankfully my sexy glasses are a big help...
I'm also Dyspraxic, so have terrible co-ordination, both these things make drawing difficult, but it's not gonna stop me trying, I may not be the best artist, but I enjoy giving it my all. ^_^
I'm quite shy also, but I'm always hopeful to make new friends, so if you want to spark up a conversation, or just simply comment on my artwork, please, feel free, I love the chance to interact with people, and will try my very best to respond as soon as possible, I also greatly appreciate all feedback on my artwork, especially comments!
Anyhow, why am I here?
I once got told that I'd never be able to draw because of my eyes, so I said, Hey, you want a bet? And that's what brought me here to DeviantArt, my home at (and occasionally away from) home! Y'know, I wish I actually put MONEY down on that bet...
What do I like?
First things first, I LOVE STAR WARS.
Like, an absurd amount, as such I've created my own OCs, and an AU that run's parallel to the old canon/Expanded Universe, most of my artwork currently will be dedicated to that story and it's characters, I hope very much that you'll enjoy it! My AU also crosses over with other folk's AUs, and I'm a proud member of the group: A-Galaxy-of-Our-Own , my artwork/AU can be found in the "Memoirs" folder!
Please check it out, all of it's contributors are excellent artists and writers, and great folks too!
By the way, if you couldn't tell, I love Manga and Anime, Especially cute Yuri fluff!
I love tons of different music, from J-pop to Rock to Heavy Metal, and I worship Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters almost religiously...
I also LOVE stand-up comedy, especially British stand-up, my favourite comedians are Dara O'Briain, and John Bishop.
I have MAAAAANY FANDOMS. Anime/manga wise, there are far too many to list...
None anime/manga, my main fandoms are generally mostly Sci-fi. XD
I am not a religious person at all, I am an Atheist, and politically I am a Moderate Liberal, an Individualist, and an egalitarian.
I am also a Cultural Libertarian, as such I stand openly opposed to the current rise of Political Correctness, Safe Spaces, and Social Justice Warrior culture - I believe in absolute Freedom of Speech and Expression above all else, and as such whilst I might strongly despise certain points of view I will absolutely defend their right to exist, as the old adage goes: "I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
My artistic goals?
My long term goal is to publish some Manga comics, and maybe eventually self-publish. Hopefully in a few years time I'll be good enough! ^w^
I'd love to create some Yuri-themed comics in particular.
I'd also love to create some Star Wars fan-comics (mostly focusing on fan-characters), and enjoy collaborating with friends on our AUs! ^_^
Other useless info.
I occasionally do crazy stuff to raise money for charity, mainly Marie Curie Cancer Care
Here is a video of me skydiving to raise money for them: www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcXV7D…
Also, I'm actually a smuggler from Corellia... Hey, if other folks can be Dragons then god damn it, I can be Corellian!
I guess that's really it...? Anyway, thank you for visiting my page, I really appreciate it, feel free to say hi and leave feedback, really, don't be shy!
Peace and Love!
