The X-Files began when I was 12 years old and wrapped up when I was 22, so I literally grew up with the show. Because of that, it had a massive influence over just about every aspect of my life, which continues to this day.

I remember when I first heard about the show, I was under the impression that it was going to be something more along the lines of Sightings than a character-driven drama series, so it took me a few episodes to really tune in. I think maybe I caught a few minutes of the Pilot when my dad was watching it, but my first full episode was Squeeze. That was enough to get me interested. By the time I saw Ice, I was obsessed. And the rest is history.

Scully in particular was a huge role model for me as a kid, as I'm sure she was for a lot of girls my age. (Note: I'm now 33, and I still want to be Scully when I grow up.) I was a quiet, geeky girl without a lot of friends, and Scully somehow made me okay with that. When I first got internet access in high school, the first real online community I belonged to was an X-Files community, and I started meeting a bunch of really great people who I could have intellectual discussions with.

Reading about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the show in the Official X-Files Magazine and in online set reports got me interested in learning about film-making, and I ended up going to college to study computer animation. I remember when it came time to write my senior thesis, X-Files was referenced quite frequently. Even today, X-Files is my favorite go-to subject matter when I want to practice drawing, whether it's realistic or cartoony.

That said, I just completed some new X-Files related artwork. I wanted to draw Scully from I Want To Believe. While I have mixed feelings about certain aspects of the movie, I still absolutely love Mulder and Scully in it. I really like how Scully's views on experimental medicine in a conservative Catholic hospital make her a bit of an outcast amongst her peers the same way that Mulder's views always made him an outcast at the FBI. I always thought that was kind of a neat parallel.


I've also been working on a new X-Files blog, and I figured this might be a good time to do a soft launch of it. Not much content there yet, but I plan for it to be the new home for my artwork (both new and old), as well as a place where I can ramble about the Season 10 comics and chronicle my upcoming series re-watch project.

Chasing Monsters With Butterfly Nets

Well, I suppose that's all for now, and if all goes well, I'm hoping to have some more artwork finished in time for the 31st!

Hey all, and happy 1013! Although technically where I'm sitting it's 1014 already, and personally, I'd never say the month before the day anyway. But we'll ignore all that.

As this is free-for-all I wanted to share some fanart that I did not make, I repeat, I'm not taking any credit for this. It's a picture given to me by the artist, a school friend of mine a couple of years ago. I probably requested her to draw something X Files for me and she did - and I only rediscovered it about a month ago! It was such a pleasant surprise. Now, unfortunately the artist and I aren't really in touch anymore and I couldn't find her deviantArt page but she's awesome and such a good artist.


So here's a bit of a teaser for you, to see the full picture open the cut!

Update's: I found the artists deviantART! It's here. Check it out, she does good stuff?

Ladies and, well... ladies!

Are you ready for some Tooms celebration?!

I certainly am.

I'm happy to present y'all with three drawings, one of which is NC-17, so don't click the cut unless children/coworkers/bosses are out of sight. Oh and don't worry, only the PG-13 ones involve bile, because, ew.

I've also made you a bit of meta because I have a great appreciation of all things first season.

under the cut: 3 drawings, the last of which is NC-17, and meta )

The following, "All Things Coming Together At Once," is a mosaic of photos, quotes, lyrics, scripture, and fanfic spawned by "all things." Sometimes we have to see the whole at once to understand something instead of looking at it frame by frame; yet sometimes one frame at a time is all we need.

Some of these drawings are pretty much prehistoric, and some are more recent, but they all include at least one of the two "most unwanted." ♥ These doodles are sedimentary layers of my DRR love and beyond.

Follow cut for some perhaps pretty artistically mediocre, but enthusiastically scribbled doodles and pictures! Excuse any trace of bad anime, please. RATHER IMAGE HEAVY. )

I have a lot more bad XF art I didn't upload. If you're interested in seeing some of it (and other, probably much better art of mine), feel free to visit my deviant art! It's mainly whimsical little pictures.
