Who is this freak?!

the white balloon ID1 by jamberry-song The Important Thing by GirlWithAHat

My name is Jacinta. I possess a dual degree in English and in Art Studio. Currently I'm working a dead-end job at a coffeehouse unemployed and selling my jewelry online and at arts and crafts shows working as an editor/paginator at a newspaper. Jobs I've held in the past include being a publisher of a newspaper, an illustrator, a ghostwriter, an archaeologist, and an editor at a publishing house. I've worked on the staff of several magazines; have had both drawings and writings published in journals, litmags, and web sites; and have launched my own small jewelry-making business. I'd like to become a teacher someday so I can impart the things that I love to young people in new and fun ways.

If you know me on here, you know that I love to read. I love nature and am a sucker for nature photography (particularly sweeping landscapes and macro shots of plants). The dA Muro French Revolution is my new love affair. The addition of dA groups is a great feature because it offers many more opportunities to connect with others and their work; my favorites folders are now swollen with incredible things! XD Some may frown upon this, but I'm a clepto for things I like. One thing I do not appreciate is when people thank me for favorites; I'd prefer they pay it forward by looking at someone else's page.

What else is there to say? I cross-dress in historical costumes all the time and am happiest inside a museum. Things I collect include rocks, coins, and beads. I'm also a clepto for art supplies and antiques. Throwing things away is very hard for me because I believe in a million uses, the sentimental capacity for objects to conjure memories, and in recycling. Artichokes and popcorn are among my favorite foods.

So that's me in a nutshell. Hope you enjoy your visit!

Ah, spring is finally here. I have actually even started to see some flowers coming up.

The illustration I submitted to AI-AP was rejected; I somewhat expected that, though, so it comes as no great surprise. The piece I chose to submit did not stand as well alone as it could have and it didn't match in subject or style the pieces selected in years past. I'm not too sad about it, but I do wish I could get my $25 back. XD Finances are a little tight at the moment.

That being said, I did order some items for a women's 18th century outfit. I have nothing to wear as a woman, only men's costume. So that will help at events, especially since I am not as thin as I once was and my things are starting to ill-fit. Better get on a diet, I guess. =p Anyhow, I shall have those things by mid-May and can wear them to my first-ever reenactment (as a participant, that is). They are not going to be perfect; I wanted things that I could wear in a pinch and possibly copy so I have more items in my wardrobe later, since I've proven myself perfectly incapable of reading patterns and such. I can kind of justify this expense.... XD

I'm in the middle of creating a Marie Antoinette doll and quite far along in my sketches for the Fort la Presentation coloring book. Exciting!

What else? I have a ton of pictures I took during my very brief, very historical vacation last month, so I will be posting a bunch of those in the next few weeks (probably, anyway).
