:oops: Thank you, Complove :) I was lucky enough to get into a small studio, called Anatomorphex ( http://www.anatomorphex.com ), where I was able to get my hands on almost all aspects of the projects we worked on. For the most part, it's usually been my crazy hippy boss (who is generally on the com...

Thanks, Taly and Complove. Yeah, I've been working as a special effects make-up artist in Hollywood for almost 4 years now. I sculpt prosthetics, make molds, cast latex and silicone, fabricate costumes, build models, take life-casts, paint (usually airbrush), and apply make-up on set for commercials...

My http://miles-unfiltered.blogspot.com/ contains quite a bit of my current work. You just gotta sort through the rubble. A link at the bottom of my blog goes directly to much of my older work- some of it very pedestrian. Man, I would love to see "Tulip II" done in stained glass. Edit: Owen: great,...

I never forget a face once I had a good look at it. I remember some people I passed in some dark alley 5 years ago the moment I meet them again. it's kinda cool how I can creep people out with this- I live in a relatively small town and it has happened to me that after being introduced to someone I...

Wasabi nuts. Now you're just trying to make me drool. :) Have you ever drank Absinthe? (I highly recommend it) I had it at a speak-easy in Hollywood a few years ago. I did enjoy it. Although I think the atmosphere of the place may have had something to do with it. It was an art gallery that had a s...

Just because everyone who rips your ticket is standing up, does not mean that it is mandatory or required for the job in any way. Seriously, you will only find as much as you're willing to see. As was mentioned before, the ADA requires employers to allow for things such as a stool to sit on if the e...

"Where the moss slowly grows" by Tiger Army

It makes me think of a friend's 10-month-old son, Oaks, who drowned. That was the hardest funeral that I have ever attended. There wasn't a dry eye in the place.

Here's a random sketch that I did in pen while I was sitting on the couch, resting my broken back (2 fractured vertebrae), back in May. It takes up a normal 8.5"x11" page.

As for me, I can fully relax and don't think at all, but it requires some effort to drive all thoughts away. It's a nice thing, though, I feel much better after it. I seldom have this problem, but I don't think in words. I have to translate what's happening in my brain into words if I want to be ab...

Everything I'm reading in this thread sounds pretty familiar. When I was in the 1st grade, my parents were called into a meeting by my teacher, where she told them that I had the highest IQ in the school(which was 1st-6th grade), at 150. All of a sudden, I was enrolled in a bunch of special programs...

I work as a special effects make-up artist, here in Hollywood. I sculpt prosthetics, make molds, cast latex and silicone, fabricate costumes, build models, take life-casts, paint, and apply make-up on set for commercials, music videos, TV and movies. It's a great job for an aspie, because most of th...

That's what I tend to attribute it to.

I'm 26 and I still get carded when I go to buy a lighter, which you have to be 18 to buy.

When I was growing up, my mother constantly asked me where my common sense was. I was finally diagnosed with asperger's when I was 20, and she hasn't said it to me in the 6 years since then.

You are definitely right about that, zeichner. I have always been more comfortable around people from different cultures, because they just expect me to be different. By the way, I loved reading Stranger in a Strange Land. The story of a man, raised on mars and experiencing the social culture on ear...

I was like that too, after I read Helter Skelter. It didn't take me too long to move on to my next obsession. I wouldn't worry too much. Although, I do currently have a giant (3'x6') poster of Dexter on my wall (the one that looks like a cover of Rolling Stone, where he has a razor blade on his neck...
