All drawings and paintings were created by dA artists on commission for me. Photos will either state that they were taken by me/my sister, or are official licensed prints from another source (such as are given out free at signing events).

I just got an email today, from a company called SRJ Direct Marketing, inviting me down to their local office for an interview on Thursday. I can't recall if this is for a vacancy I actively applied for, or if they've just seen my CV on a recruitment site like Monster.co.uk

Whatever, I don't care.

I have an interview to get ready for! XD


...

Now, if only I knew the first thing about direct marketing... :P

Gregory Cooper
United Kingdom
I am a 30 year old man, currently living in London with my father. Currently I am unemployed, but actively seeking work (including waiting to hear back from an interview just last week at WHSmith, and hopefully attending another interview soon with Santander.

I have zero artistic skill. Seriously. You'd never want to see me draw, I can't even do a good stickman. :P Because of this, I choose to turn to those with real artistic talents, and commission them to draw and paint my ideas for me.

I like to read - almost exclusively either science fiction or fantasy. I prefer somewhat-longer novels to flimsy little paperbacks. I don't just want to read a book, I want to read a Book. :D
The last book series that I read was the Harry Potter novels. Admittedly, I'm not a fast reader. xD I am currently reading Lord of the Rings, but have trouble pronouncing some of the Middle-Earth words in my head (which I find slows me down even more).

I play computer games too. But since I can't afford current games, I rely on the older games that I bought or have downloaded. I enjoy playing on my SNES emulator with the games made by Quintet (Actraiser, Soulblazer, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma, Robotrek), as well as some that are slightly more modern (an emulated version of The Granstream Saga for the PS1) and others even older (like my Amstrad emulator), or for modern PCs (the early installments of Quake, G-Police, The Sims, Black & White, Spore).

So too, I also enjoy watching TV and DVDs. I have a huge collection of DVDs that could rival a small rental store, and my favourite film of all is, to this day, Independence Day. My favourite TV series is Doctor Who, and my favourite soap opera is Neighbours (of which I've never missed an episode since sometime before 1990).

I like to go to sci-fi conventions, but can't afford to. I am obese, but working hard at dieting (my love of fatty foods makes this hard) and currently weigh something about 18st (or 252lbs), though I've lost about 20lbs to get there. I am more bald than my 60yo dad, and have a skin disease called Psoriasis on parts of my scalp, meaning I have to partially shave my head to treat it. But overall, I enjoy my life, the only thing I'd really wish to change would be to have a career so that I could afford to enjoy myself more.

What else? Oh yes, I dance. I have been taking regular ballroom dancing classes since I was 6 years old, and can dance moderately well. I used to attend amateur ballroom dancing competitions a few times a year, and was a very frequent medallist. Again, going to these competitions is something I can't afford at this time.

But life is good. :)

Yep. I'm working in partnership with each of my parents separately, as they're divorced. That way, they each research what they want to know, and I get to share both lots of work with them. :)

Let me one question, did the work arrive to you??

:iconpower-and-chaos:
No, it hasn't yet, but I'm not too worried. We recently had a national postal strike, so there's a huge backlog of post to be delivered. It's very probably just been delayed while the postmen catch up. :)
