I'm ugly. Me =

If I go outside I get pelted with rocks and cigarette butts. That's enough motivation for me to stay inside and work on my art.

I'm red-green colour blind, so it really forces me to pay attention to colour theory and tones.

I don't have a particular physical (dis)advantage, but I do have a strong and focused will, and I can be quite devoted to things I really want. I think this has pushed me through a lot of trouble.

Oh yes, I am exactly the same - My mind comes alive at night. My sleeping pattern is completely messed upwell, there is no pattern. I tend to just sleep when I知 tired. If its not convenient to sleep, then I値l just have come caffeine and wait until I知 tired again, if its convenient, I値l sleep. I知 kind of hoping it will turn itself around naturally though - so I can one day go to sleep at 渡ormal sleeping hours.
I am somewhat a perfectionist, although you can稚 really call that a 田ondition. It can be annoying at times, but overall I think it痴 a plus. A kind of quality control.

Woah! I thought I was the only one who's peak working hours were 2 am I definately feel like I have a 28 hour cycle, and I am constantly being woken up four hours too early every day for work. Grrr.

I swear that I would be happiest if one of those sci-fi 'Earth-altering nukes/earthquake/aliens/etc' would make days longer by just four hours. That's not too much to ask, is it? (Calling Dr Evil...)

Ah well, until that time it's up from 7am to 1am-4am until the weekend where my sleep cycle gets really messed up... heh.

At least I should be better equiped to handle fatherhood at some point!

Ben

Good morning to my fellow insomniacs!

Put me down for the same henderence.... Mine is more of a Blue-Green color blindness.... I have massive trouble figuring one from the other unless its a drastic difference. I have gotten myself trained rather good to distinquish but it can get tough... also have troube with dark shades of green and blue... looks black to me most of the time.

Haha... you arn't lying. It gets a bit dodgy sometimes... You should see me on a bad morning when I try to match... Oh the horror. I have gotten into neverending verbal sparing matches with my girlfriend about this... I have come to realize, Im usually wrong. haha

But like i said above. Its getting better, just looking at things a bit differently helps "get" it. People are always coming up to me holding a couple pieces of material up and asking "Which one is green which one is blue." Oh the irritation. I usually get it right and they usually shoot back "But how can you tell, your lying blah blah blah".. Nothing like telling countless people over and over. "It's just different in my eyes."

I'm multiarural, that helps a lot
And I've also got that weird sleep cicle stuff, thou that doesn't help at all, cause it causes me to be creative when I'm actually too tired for it...

Multiarural? What exactly is that? Google tells me it's non existent! Is that a typo?

I知 Dyslexic. That in it self doesn稚 guarantee anything but because dyslexic people壮 heads are wired differently (or some crap like that) they tend to be more creative. Note the use of the word 田reative that could be anything from construction or auto work to the fine arts. It depends on your influences.



My influences just happen to be books, comics, and other matters of geekdom. I do believe if wasn稚 dyslexic I wouldn稚 be the artist that I am today. By profession I知 a computer programmer and I probably would only be a programmer if I wasn稚 dyslexic. Heck I probably wound't even be a programmer if I wasn't dyslexic.

hihi, yep, it's a typo, I wanted to say multiartural, with is a poor translation of the german non-existent word: multikulturell. Get it?! If not I'm sure mister Gedzit will get it
