"I apologise for not updating recently, its just that college has been madness and i havent been able to work on anything other than college work recently! But all my deadlines are finished tomorrow so I will start work on the other two covers!"
"Sorry that I havent been around lately! I have everything ready to go with "Olive you" I just need to make some time for myself to sit down an record it (not to mention the song art Ive to finish XD)"
"Hi Claire, I'm from the DFTBA Cover Album. There are some big updates for artists so I thought I would drop by your page to tell you about them. We have set up a youtube channel and need a display picture and a skin for it, we are really…"
"It might be a really cool idea to have a channel for this project that everyone involved would have access to! That way everyone could update their progress and what not! But I guess it might be a lot of hassle. Just a little thought!"
"Hi! I'm writing people/artist blurbs for the collab album. It would really help to have everyone's e-mail (So I can ask "Who are you?" if I have to) and Youtube adress (for those who have one). /Tova"
"Thanks for your imput :) Yeah, I was trying some stuff out with the background, it isnt the final design and I do hope to find some cool fonts that might work well. I just used the generic font to see what it would look like as I had spent ages on…"
I am the hat wearing, drawing, reading, writing, guitar and ukulele playing, animator type of Nerdfighter!
I am Claire (or Fidz). I'm a twenty year old animation student from Ireland with a collection of over 40 hats! Thats a lot of head gear! Nothing better than a toastie scalp! I'm obsessed with music, film, books and jewellery in the shape of owls.
I play the guitar and ukulele (though neither of them particularly well) and I also sing, a lot! (I'm a bit of a musical nerd) So um...thats me!
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
My favourite book and Movie is The Princess Bride. It's a classic and I absolutely love it. Of course I also love to read Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Skullduggery Pleasant, to name but a few. (I'm hoping to get Papertowns really soon!)
I also spend my time reading gigantic books on animation principles, because it is helpful to know what you're doing in college, especially if you're hoping to pass.
When it comes to music I have a very wide and strange taste. From classics like The Beatles and The Eagles to incredibly new stuff like Patrick Wolf.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Hats, especially ones that are shaped like animals! My current favourite is a tiger one!
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Oooh interesting...hmm....either Doctor Who or Dumbledore!
Hi Claire, I'm from the DFTBA Cover Album. There are some big updates for artists so I thought I would drop by your page to tell you about them. We have set up a youtube channel and need a display picture and a skin for it, we are really looking for an artist who is capable of doing this and has the time. I will be posting this on all the artist's pages so it would be great if you could check out the discussion and if we could get someone to do these things. DFTBA
Just testing the image as-is, it needs to be about twice as wide and three times as long to work as the background. I think the image and the font are the perfect size - but if you could add space between them to get the spacing better that would be awesome. And the length you add can just be blank space. I love how simple it is, and I love the design style. If you want to keep working it, that is awesome (like if you have more ideas or fine tuning you want to add to it), or if you want to leave it it is great too!
:O Holy crap! Wow, I LOVE it! It is absolutely unbelievable! I am actually speechless right now. I love that you captured my eyebrow thing, and the nerfighter aspect... It is amazing! Did we ever figure out what the dimensions need to be for a YouTube page? Also, can you send it to me at email@example.com?
Claire, I cannot even tell you how AMAZING you are! I owe you so much.
I am looking for whatever you can come up with for me! I really have no specific idea of what I want it to look like. I just really like the look of your stuff, and I would totally love to have a Claire-styled background! As far as formatting goes, I am pretty sure a jpeg would do, but you could send whatever you come up with in a couple of different file formats if you wanted, just to be sure. Thanks for offering to do this! There is no rush, I am sure you are busy, but I CAN'T WAIT to see what you come up with!
Here is my channel, perhaps that will inspire you? : http://www.youtube.com/brendanlinwood
Hi, I saw on the (un)official nanowrimo thread that you are a writer. Whether or not you have almost succesfully completed nano we are always looking for nerdfighter writers to submit pieces to http://nerdfighters.ning.com/group/nerdfightercollabbook you never know, you might end up getting published. Please check us out if you are interested. DFTBA
I know you are probably suuuper busy with school and life and all that, but I have a favour to ask. I was wondering (and feel completely free to say no) if you would be willing to design a background image for my YouTube channel? I LOVE your style of artwork on your DA, and I would love to see what you could come up with. Right now my channel lacks any semblance of life. Anyways, let me know!
