August the 16th


Well, most of you heard about the Tattoo I was planning on getting. (Well, technically two..)

So, Here is the picture of the final design!


I decided to go black on each wrist, and i think it turned out pretty sweet. I credit my sister for the interesting photography, I was wondering why she was telling me to move my arms left/right. Then after I saw the pic I realized that she was trying to include the clock. Which I though was kinda neat.

As most of you know as well, It was a take on the logo from the Demonata - Darren Shan. Well, I posted the pic for him to see, and sadly, I didn't get a reply.. :(

My website


OK, so during my man activities of the daily life, I do enjoy sitting down with nothing more than a pencil, a few pens and my trusty eraser in front of a few sheets of paper and see what I can come up with. Most of what I end up doing turns out to be from The Saga of Darren Shan - By Darren Shan And a few have been from The Demonata - Also by Darren I'm quite a fan of Darren's work. And because his work is not overly animated yet, It leaves me free to interpret A lot of the characters as I see them, instead of a generic view of one specific character.

Not to mention The Saga is being turned into a film and I don't want it to change my take on characters before I have a chance to get my version of how I see them out on paper..

I also hope to start in the near future some other works for a few other books, Like The City Trilogy - Another Darren and MAYBE if I get the time, a few from Twilight series - Stephanie Meyer Again, time permitting..

But for now, my works that I have done and had a chance to post are up on my website. Hopefully with some more updates soon.. The link is

Be forewarned, if you have a slow connection.. I hope you have reading material, it tends to take a bit to load...


How I waste time Effectivly


Well, seeing as how I live in "What has been geographically determined as the exact middle of no where", I have some spare time on my hands, Between life and well, life.

I spend a good percentage of my time reading.. I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on, I read everything from the morning news, to some of the largest novels I can find.. I mostly prefer novels to anything. I enjoy a variety of authors from Darren Shan, to J.K. Rowling, Franz Kafka, Aldous Huxley and almost anything in the middle.

I also like to work on my music, I'm not overly talented in this department.. But I can play the Piano, Clarinet and Bagpipes well enough to annoy the rest of those I live with. I can also play the guitar a bit, Not overly well.. Stubby fingers and a bit of ill co-ordination doesn't help.

Another one of my many past times is drawing.. I know I'm not the best Artist in the world. Far from it. But I'm not half bad. If you look up just a bit, to the yellow text, My site and more on it are available for your interest to take a look at and explore!

Who am I

My Website


Well, lets see.. To start My real name is Nyck-E, (I don't dare give much more of my last name than a letter, Not in the mood for a stalker) :) I'm rather short for my age, I'm just about 5 foot tall.. I have mid back length hair that changes colour on a fairly regular basis.. Mostly when I'm bored and have a few bucks to spare on dye..

When I'm not busy chatting with friends, I like to sit back and work on my drawing, which if you look a bit to the left, you will see more on that.. I also am working on writing a book series of my own. With a lot of planning, many crumpled balls of paper on the floor and hours of trying to get things how I want them to sound, I finally have something I'm rather happy with.. For now anyway, I tend to leave things finalized for a bit, then go back and dislike it and change it again. And again.. Bad habits are hard to break.. I also tend to wright in half English half French..

Aside from speaking English (A bit obvious), I also can speak French and Almost completely German. As well, I know a bit of Latin, Hungarian, Spanish, and Japanese.. Most of the secondary languages I have learned were with a dictionary and many hours of reading it.. And a bit of formal language study in school and those relatively cheep learn a language kit's..

And I am also dyslexic for those of you who are reading this and picking out my abundance of spelling and grammatical errors..

Well, If you have read this far, I thank you for not dying of boredom and leaving :)

    Not many of us around any more, but there are a few of us still huddled up on what's left of ezboard/yuku. It's good to hear from you. Feel free to post at the House of Shadows if you get the chance.
