    My name is Konrad and i am an aspiring artist, currently living and studying in New York City, originally from Poland. I have enjoyed Warren's work since 2006 when i read Transmetropolitan, which meant a lot to me at that time, because Spider Jerusalem pulled me out from a deep hole i was in. Respect forever there.. :) Things have gotten better since, i'm trying to put together my art and some stories together, because art is my life.. especially comic books, but i enjoy many other things, like books, science, history. But most of all - crazy, incredible, amazing ideas.. Warren and others here unleash many of them upon the world, so i'm happy to be here..

    Sorry for a doublepost.. I tried to post a picture from flickr but it didn't appear. Would it be possible if someone could tell me how to fix it? Thanks

    @ people with missing photos—

    It's important that you copy the image url, not the url of the page the image appears on. You can get this by right-clicking (or control-clicking on a mac) on the image and selecting "Copy Image URL." In Flickr you have to be on the page that shows you all the different image size options, NOT the regular page for the photo.

    Then use the img button in the style and formatting menu and that's the URL you should enter when it prompts you to.

    @dorkmuffin--I've been here since the beginning and never figured that out. Thank you for this instructive day!

    I'm Steve. I grew up reading comics in the ghost city of Detroit, Michigan. I work with autistic and mentally-ill clients and do some painting and writing on the side. I enjoy tai chi, yoga, ales and alternative futures.

    Thanks for letting me participate in this forum.

    I'm dense. And Dense.

    By trade I'm and IT manager, but that's just the way the water flows for the time-being. I'm an illustrator committed firmly to the dying arts of pen and ink. I do album covers for techno records, mostly, these days.

    I also grew up reading comics in the ghost city of Detroit, but grew wings at some point and flew across the Atlantic and am currently living in Brussels, Belgium. I really fell in love with the comic scene here when I arrived (totally different fare to what I was used to stateside).

    Hi there. How you doing? You come here often?

    Me? I go by the name kingmonkey. That's probably not my real name, though I have gotten birthday cards from my wife and friends addressed as such so, maybe... I like to hang out on the internet reading Realy Important Stuff like changes to superheroes costumes, or who could beat whom in a fight, or the like. I like to wite. I wish I could draw/paint/art with the skill of some folks I've seen here.

    I don't have a picture handy. Let's see: skinny white guy, mid-thirties-- picture that and it's me exactly. I live in the Canada, so you can probably picture me with a warm hat and it'll be accurate most of the year.

    Hallo, I'm Arianna. No, in all seriousness, I am. Third year creative writing student at University of California at Riverside. Transmet, Planetary, RED, Freak Angels, etc. <3 I'm sure you've heard it before. Don't mind me, I lurk. (I suspect my picture is a bit big, too :/)

    I'm John-with-an-aitch-god-dammit. Engineering student, Vancouver (Winter Olympics last year), BC, Canada.
    Born in Nottingham, moved to Canada at one. I've got two birthdays thanks to our friends the time zones, so I'm well-equipped for dodging the draft [if/when] [it comes/America annexes Canada and imposes it].
    FreakAngels was a sure thing for me the moment that I saw a steam-powered helicopter, and was sure-er when I realized how much the entire thing rocked.
    I have a sneaking suspicion that I got here from Bad Machinery, although I've got no idea how.
    Transmetropolitan is the only other Warren Ellis production that I've consciously read. I'm a small-time comic-book nerd, so I've probably read other stuff without knowing it.
    When I have a proper photo of myself, I'll post it.
    Pleased as anything to be here. Mmmm...speculation about plotlines...

    Hi, my name is Jamie (real name is technically James, honesty compels me to tell you this for no real reason) I found Whitechapel (and everything Warren Ellis) through TVTropes. I blame that website for everything. (When I'm not blaming Mr. Ellis that is, seriously, stop linking stuff, I'll just follow it and be horrified, or amused, or something)

    I look like this:

    Horrifying I know. Um, what else? I'm at my second year of university at the College of Fine Arts, part of the University of New South Wales doing digital media. It's in Sydney, Australia.

    Hi,I'm Stuart and I'm currently trapped in what my mother affectionately calls her spare room.

    I studied History with Film Studies at the University of Essex and as a result am totally unemployable in what some people would call the real world, but I call the zoo of tortured souls. I've always liked art, got an A in GCSE graphic design but a D in art... some people just don't get originality when it smacks them in the face with large stick. Then kind of went off it for a while and got interested in film.

    I write scripts in my spare time, or just time really, or I occassionally do some camerawork on my friends poetry videos. I take pictures of stuff, I doodle, I don't like colour.

    Love films, comics, books, and anything that relieves the tedium of life for a single moment.

    I've been using pablohunny as my handle for so long I sometimes don't realise people are talking to me online when I'm addressed by my real name (Alicia). I'm absent minded with people, names and faces, addicted to harvesting facts (accurate or otherwise) and have a creative streak inversely proportional to my attention span.

    Fortunately, I work in e-learning, where everything is written down several times and I get to think outside the box often enough to keep me enthusiastic.

    Hello, tatere is me. I love this Freakangels thing. I have been reading it since pretty near the start, back there in the past times. Thanks to everyone who makes it, and everyone who buys all the cool stuff! to help the makers keep making it.

    Hey there. Name's Terance. I've been lurking here for quite some time without ever actually idea why. Anyway, I'm glad to be a part of the community now, etc. etc. I've only really been into comics for about a year and a half. Bought a few comics here and there when I was a little kid, but I didn't really get it back then. One day I happened upon a book called Orbiter ("What?! They're not all about superheroes??" I thought); been addicted to comics ever since, and I love Warren's work.

    Um, let's see...I live down in Texas, I like to write...comics and the like. Can't draw to save my life, unfortunately. That's 'bout it, I reckon.

    Here's me in Heidelberg

    Glad to have finally joined and I expect to be spending a lot more time here now. And actually posting.

    Taj Gunn here.

    I am an aspiring writer and teenager living in Virginia. I have been seen in mostly comic conventions and I became a fan of Warren since Planetary. This is my first post in the forum, something that I should have done a long time. This is a great forum. I've met greats like George Perez, Marv Wolfman, Steve Niles, Mike Avon Oeming, even Brian Michael Bendis via the Baltimore Comiccon.

    I have not met you personally, Warren. But I look forward to talking to you at BCC, If you come, that is.

    Which I'm not. But welcome to Whitechapel, anyway.

    I'm Jim Unwin, an arty type living in Guildford, just south of London. I've been been lurking around Whitechapel for a while (having found the site via Project Rooftop), but thought I should finally man up and post something.

    Nine to five I work for a games studio, we've just released LittleBigPlanet2 for the PS3, which is kind of exciting (it only took us three years!). When I'm not nerding out about human/machine interfaces I draw a lot. I've long since abandoned the idea of turning my illustration into a career, and instead do it almost entirely for my own amusement. I guess I should post something in one of the art threads.

    Finally, I've just become a dad, so apologies in advance for talking about my daughter all the time. But, I mean, come on...

    Surprised baby is surprised

    How awesome is that?
