akitku's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
I am a PhD graduate of philosophy. I draw vampire characters embedded in a historical world, watch anime and read about hospitaller knights, crusades and the fall of the Roman empire...all of which seem highly inappropriate for a philosopher.

You can view my sketches and process drawings on:

Sorry for the semi-hiatus. I should be back soon. And I'm still trying to comment on people's works regularly. Anyway, I was tagged by Theophilia which was fun. Thank you for the tag! :) 

1.)   What's your favorite or one of your favorite Bible verses?

Probably this one:

“There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus” Galatians 3.28
Also this one:
"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another."  John, 13.34

2.) What's your favorite literary genre and why? (ie. historical fiction, fantasy, etc.)

This is a tough one for me actually. I like historical fiction and fantasy in theory, though not in practice so to speak. To be honest I feel disappointed/frustrated by most (published) pieces of historical fiction and fantasy I ever read (Tolkien is the noble exception here, as are some wonderful pieces I read by people here on dA). When it comes to history I prefer non-fiction (academic) books, which lay out the world for me, so to speak, and where I can then come up with my own stories. I suppose I just feel most historical fiction is badly written and I find it difficult to engage with or care about the characters. It’s all either extremely obvious or overly complicated and pointlessly ‘dark’ and violent and full of fake complexity. I feel most historical fiction and fantasy I read lacks any reflection, is solely plot driven, and the psychology of the characters is usually really dry and uninteresting (well for me anyway). When it comes to literature I prefer modernist/postmodernist writing. For example I’m really fond of Kurt Vonnegut (I read pretty much all of his books and I love this literary style whatever you call it…) and of The Catcher in the Rye, and The Things They Carried; these are the sort of books I really get drawn into and feel like reading and re-reading over and over again. Also the Moomin series by Tove Jansson because it is genius and not children’s books at all in my opinion.

3.) What's your favorite (or one of your favorite) play or musical, and why?

Waiting for Godot – explaining why would take ages, but I like the absurdity, the way nothing is explained and the way nothing happens…that sounds weird.

4.) Favorite season and why?

Spring/Summer.  Because it’s warm.

5.) What are you listening to right now?

Joy Division

6.) What's your personal favorite quality about yourself?

I hate questions like this so I will skip it! :)

7.) What's your least favorite quality about yourself?

Indecisiveness, stubbornness, arrogance, intolerance and lack of patience towards people I disagree with, self-doubt, escapism, my interests being all over the place (which is a good thing in general but sort of makes it hard to focus).

8.) What are your artistic dreams?

I want to finish the comic. And then write the Outremer story as a full novel. With illustrations. It’ll probably never happen.

9.) What artistic projects are you working on right now?

The comic…But I’m on a hiatus for now.

10.) What's one of the best things you've ever done/or ever accomplished?

My marriage and my PhD– these two coincided btw.

11.) What are your artistic inspirations?

Hmm…history, religion, folklore, academic books on the aforementioned topics, Tolkien, Pre-Raphaelite art, medieval art, Kai Nielsen, Angus McBride’s books on medieval warfare, travelling, The Moomin series by Tove Jansson, stories by Astrid Lindgren (especially the fantasy ones), manga and comic books, computer games, music; it can just go on and on, but in general it’s a rather random bunch of stuff…

12.) What's your Temperament?

13.) What's your Myers-Briggs personality type?

I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you decide to do it, tag me back I will enjoy reading the answers! :)
