    Hello. My name is, hum, Hugo Paceli. I live in Brazil, more exactly in Brasilia, which is the capital (despite efforts of putting the title in other cities like São Paulo, or worse, in Buenos Aires. It is not even in Brazil!). I study pharmacy in college, and I intend of continuing my studies in the area of addiction and such.
    In the mean time, I read a fucking lot, play RPG, listen to music. I am no capable of drawing, and the most thing I do is writing, but I don't have any dicipline to do it as a work.
    Did I said that I like Ellis' work very much? Well, I do.
    Let me find some photograph here...

    I was drunk during this shooting.

    Oh what the hell, its been a long time since I've done one of these…

    (For the trivia nerds: Yes, this is my photo that was used in Kick-Ass, the movie. OMGLOL I'm famouse!)

    Hello everyone, I am Tom Muller, and like Paul I'm a graphic designer and have been hanging around these parts for much too long.
    You can check out my work and everything else that is vaguely interesting about me at my site:

    I've been in the industry for 12 years and while I primarily work in digital (I've designed websites for everyone, going from Hexstatic, Kid Koala and Roots Manuva to Columbia Records, Kylie, Lily, The Pet Shop Boys and *shudder* Dido).

    Along all the web stuff I've always kept a healthy appetite for print design and comics of course, which has seen me team up with Ashley Wood for whom I've designed loads of stuff (websites, logos, books,…), Art directing Liam Sharps Mam Tor Publishing books and recently teaming up with Ivan Brandon for a variety of cool stuff, most notably VIKING. And I bagged and Eisner nomination for the design of Comic Book Tattoo, the Tori Amos anthology from Image 2 years ago, of which I'm still a little proud in a comic geek kind of way.

    Currently heavily into Dubstep, both the inane WUB WUB WIGGA crap and the better Stuff that Tempa and Hyperdub put out.

    Hello everybody! This is my first post (ahh)! You all seem like wonderful and intriguing people and I am excited to be a part of whitechapel.

    My name is Farah. I was born and raised in the Middle East, but am currently an art student in the Northeastern US. I paint, and make digital beats with a makeshift studio in my bedroom. I love a variety of music..some favorites are Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Ulrich Schnauss, Boards of Canada, Philip Glass, Portishead, and endless others. I am also an avid cook (and eater). I love creating new recipes, and I am currently known as Gammy amongst my friends because I bake at least once a week.
    I also love reading. I'm going to New York Comic Con next month, so e-mail me if you're going too!
    Now for a blurry, dark photobooth picture..

    Hello! I've been reading Freakangels since it started up (I think I first read about it on a post in Neatorama or BoingBoing or something), but I've never introduced myself.

    My name's Colleen and I'm a senior in high school up in New England. I was raised partially in Dublin, Ireland, but haven't been able to travel back there for a long time. I play field hockey and rugby and I longboard when I'm not busy, which is pretty often.

    I'm taking a printmaking class right now (currently working on a linoleum print of a robot destroying a city) but I love to paint. Mostly I've painted helmets and skateboards and such for custom orders. I don't think I'll make my career out of it but it's definitely something I love to do.

    Here's a picture of me with my favorite board, a Surf Rodz creation that's pretty trashed now after some heavy summer shredding, and a peacock helmet I painted a while ago.

    Hi, my name is something I wont tell you because I'm internet paranoid. But I'm German, so my name is probably Hans or Karl. Maybe Reinhardt or even Wolfgang. If you want you can call me IG, though, that's my handle here.

    I'll probably do more lurking than posting here, as this is what I do almost everywhere else. I once had the habit of writing long satirical rants on morality and/or stupidity subjects which slowly derailed into more (less?) inane ramblings about how I'm not actually a tea person, or something. N-E-WAY. Not important. I just fondly remember that when I couldn't shut up about signed musicians being horrible sellouts. It ended with me proclaiming that music has to be shitty to be good.

    Crazy transition: I make music with a program meant to create guitar tabs. It's called TuxGuitar, is free and is absolutely sweet. Works great as a sequencer for me. Not like I ever tried a different one. Recently I found out you can just click on the score to add notes. Isn't that great? Not like I do that. I can't read notes.

    As for the music, check out my latest release over at my Bandcamp. I'm not signed, that's how you know I'm not a sellout. And the music is very very good. Clearly.

    Benign Greetings, and languid salutations.

    I am, as my name states... that is he, the he who I am. I'm an aspiring world dominator, with a singular focus on those floppy, glossy paper contraptions, that have all the pedantic boys and girls, soiling the cotton of their denim confinements. Yikes... that was a sentence suffering from adjective bloat.

    I'm Eric, I want to write and draw comic books, and I wants to be with me people. People who love the art-form of words and pictures that form not only a story, but an experience. Hazzah Hazzah!

    Pakistani Drawguy. Most of the regulars may remember me, vaguely.
    Currently employed as art director at an animation studio.
    I haven't been around these parts, or on the internet, for the last few months.

    My name is PK (Paul Kevyn but everyone calls me by my initials).
    I'm a comic writer, artist, and filmmaker in LA.

    I've been a fan of Warren's work for about 10 years and have just launched an online series with intents to self publish at the end of the year.

    I've been a lurker here for a while, but frankly this place scares me sometimes. :P

    @harris-ejaz - Welcome back. :)
  5.  (8846.31)

    I've been a casual reader here for a while and decided to start participating.

    I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA where I received a BFA in Sequential Art. I also have an MLS form the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland.

    I live with my wife and 2 cats in Hillsboro, Oregon and am currently a librarian at a small liberal arts university. I'm also a writer and have self published a novel, The Machine of the World, and am currently putting together some proposals for comics series.

    I like science fiction, monster movies, and Mexican food.

    Hail to you one and all!

    Just found out about this comic this morning (5am to be exact) And spent all morning reading it. Gotta say, I love it!!

    This is my first post in this forum, so I figured this would be a good place to do it!

    My name is Jared and I live in Fayetteville Arkansas. I am a Wal*Martian by occupation (-gag-) though not by choice I can assure you. I hope to one day work for myself, doing something that I enjoy, and not having to hate work day after day.

    Role Playing Games are my passion, my one true love. Getting together every week with my group and creating a story, just makes me feel good. Helps the mind grow. Of course I am a lover of all thing comics and graphic novels too!

    I leave you with a picture of me. (-Warning- If you have a weak heart, you might want to look away!!)

    Hi WCh

    I'm Martin Hekker (Man-machine) and am in digital comics and neuroscience. Unfortunately in the reverse order during my typical work week.
    I've lurked here in the past and have been looking for a message board loosely focused on comics, and this seems to be the place.
    I am pretty agnostic about mainstream comics. When I read comics as a kid I was mostly interested in the ad on the back for 101 green toy soldiers and looking at human anatomy under stretch suits.
    But they've grown on me, mostly as other mediums have caused intense boredom (action adventure movies, CDs, DVDs, HBO series).
    I read most of my comics at the public library. In part because who ever is in charge of the collections in Chicago has great taste in comics. It's just a bit easier than going to the comic store and being overwhelmed by the choices.
    I wrote a comic in college called N.O.D. that was distributed monthly in Evanston, Illinois. Occasionally I'll meet some black-clad cybergoth who remembers it and that will bring me a small amount of happiness. Hey, you take what you can get.
    Although I love the smell of ink, the Wacom Cintiq is really mystifyingly good. I also do electronic music. In this endeavor I find computer simulations of analogue process terrible. But for some reason I am less bothered by digital 2D processes. Perhaps this is because I was never a very good painter, and as an inker, was mostly obsessed with perfect lines.

    yes hello

    I am Jensen, occasionally known as Teal, Seraph, or if you happen to be someone who knew me during my wayward high school days, Ryuu.

    I am a graduate student in Creative Nonfiction writing at Emerson college, which essentially means "I don't make enough money to pay for my rent and I will never have a job and also be in debt forever."

    I started reading comics because I developed an obsession with giant robots from space sometime in college. I thus set out to start reading comics about giant robots, and in the course of talking to friends about said giant robots they began to heap on me all sorts of other kinds of comics.

    Actually, that's a lie - I started with Sandman, but then didn't bother with much else till later. The giant robots were kind of a gateway into more, however. As was living with a man who was utterly obsessed with Batman and collected all things Batman.

    I would read more, but it's one of those functions of time + money that I can't quite finish. I'd rather be able to heat my apartment than read awesome comics. Sadly.

    Presumably, I exist. I find science fascinating and I'm one of those people who, when the machines finally take over, will instead breathe a sigh of relief.

    ... yes, that's all, really.

    oh wait yes pictures.

    picture tadaa though my hair is shorter now.
    • CommentTimeSep 30th 2010
    Jensen, your story about reading Sandman but not any further comics and how, instead, giant robots were the "gateway" concept for you is kind of funny.

    Funny to me at any rate, given that the first comics I began reading regularly were about giant robots from space, but in my case they were the anomaly, and I only found my "gateway" comics later when friends started pushing Marvel superhero books on me, entirely unrelated to any interest in giant robots on anyone's part.

    (Perhaps, per Warren's old online column, one does "come in alone" to comics, but then sometimes doesn't go in very far until someone else takes note and says "hey, quit hanging by the door and join us at the bar.")

    Matt - oh, certainly. Again, I think the thing that sealed it was that I ended up living with two comic book nerds my senior year of high school, and got involved in an online play by post RPG group that also coincidentally involved comic book nerds. I walked into it going "Hey I heard you guys have robots" and walked out of it with trades of Transmet and Green Lantern, wondering what the hell happened to my credit card.

    This is my first post, and this discussion seemed like a better place to start than most. Wheee! Look at me go~~~

    My name is Miranda, but some people call me Ran Ran, which is nice.

    I adore comics, science fiction, Northern European Renaissance paintings, bitter flavors, cat wrestling, drawing, bad television & beer, and the smell of wet cement. I have been making things all my life, and managed to nab myself a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fine Arts (a Bufafuh, in case you're wondering).

    I started reading comics at the tender age of twelve, when my step-brother left his collection of late 80's, early 90's Marvel comics with my parents. The collection was in all actuality the size of an over-stuffed loveseat, and I read them all. Thems wuz the dayz...

    Hmmm... What else.

    I moved around a lot as a little kid (hippie parents-- have tent, will live in it), but spent the bulk of my childhood/young-adulthood in NYC.

    I currently reside in South Korea. Waaaaaay in the countryside. My job is not exactly taxing, so I spend an inappropriate amount of time on the internets.

    So... here I am~~ Hullo!

    Hi Guys,

    Been without internet for a solid half a year, and am so out of the Whitechapel loop a reintroduction is necessary.

    I was living in Newcastle, completing my Honours in English, by studying Transmetropolitan.
    In the intervening time I've moved to Melbourne, (fuck yeah rain!), and am 30 days off submission of thesis.

    I've realised all too late that i hate sitting alone in a room studying how awesome other people's creativity is
    and locking up my brain into finding the patterns. But i'm 10 Grand down so I may as well shiv the fucker
    while the mettle's still hot!

    I love everything comics, and will tell you all about it if you ask one too many polite questions.

    I'm currently festering a musical theatre concept and a novel about drought and the white expereience of the dreamtime,
    so hopefully i'll soon be talking shit about those things instead!

    P.S. Darick Robertson is a fucking savant, glory be his name.

    P.P.S. that shaggy caffiene addict is one too.

    Hello, the name is Matt or Ren, whichever you prefer.

    Semi-pro writer of short fiction, politics nerd, and I've been around here almost as long as there's been a Whitechapel to lurk on. I live in the south Bay Area in California and I work in HR. Yes, I'm one of those bastards (but the nice one who calls you to say "You're hired!").
