1) Who are you and where are you?
Krys C - currently NL, Canada, but I tend not to be anywhere too long. Should be back overseas this Spring.
2) What do you do for work?
For the last five 1/2 years I've had the good fortune to do something I love for a living, tattooing purdy pictures onto the bodies of people from all walks of life. The last two and 1/2 years I've combined this with travelling, and tend to alternate between work and backpacking.
3) What do you do for fun?
Again, I'm fortunate in that my work IS fun. If I'm not putting art on people, or doing art for the hell of it, I could be at any plethora of things; reading, writing, having a coffee or a martini with a friend, checking out forums, watching youtube or following six degrees of separation on wikipedia articles. Which may all sound a little dull I suppose but I tend to balance it out with hiking, scuba diving and checking out things like the Dome of the Rock and the Giza pyramids so I feel there's a pretty good balance there.
4) Tell me something about your bookshelves.
Well, bookSHELF more accurately. This is the first time in a while I've even actually had one. I find shelves don't tend to fit in backpacks. So my shelf is a little sad, at the moment, I'm afraid, and filled only with a couple books I grabbed from storage at my parent's place before heading back to St. John's for a while.
5) Tell me something about ONE of the books on your shelf.
To be honest, I haven't read most of them, which I why I bothered to bring them out with me. I'm currently working through the short stories of 'Tesseracts 13', a Canadian anthology of horror-based fiction in which my best mate had her story, 'silence' published. Congrats, Steph.
Also, a very small book you likely can't see the spine of is 'Everything you wanted to know about Anarchism but were afraid to ask' - which sounds insanely corny but is actually a fantastic short read and really does do what it says on the cover.
