My Heavily Caffeinated Heart
Macchiato Part 2
The coloured lights pulsed and reflected off every surface, every cocktail and every bottle showcased in the shelving behind the bar. The sweaty throng of dancers flocked together, twisting their bodies to the rhythmic shapes of the music in the humid air. They worshipped the DJ, elevated on his podium. They were his disciples and we would join in their cause.
"What do you reckon?" I raised my voice to ask Chris.
"Seems alright but I want a drink." He responded and turned to the bar
"Nah, no, no, get out there and scout the war zone. I'll get the drinks."
Chris raised his blonde eyebrows once, glanced towards the bar longingly and then finally spun on his heels and trudged towards the dance floor. I swaggered up to the bench, looking around at the other people eagerly awaiting service. I ordered two beers for Chris and myself. Turning abruptly, I accidentally knocked the arm of a dark haired guy who was carrying three drinks, causin

Dane Alexander O'Leary
United States
My name is Dane, and I'm not like most people you've met.

I've experienced a lot, and my art tends to show it; drama, emotion... I'm rarely subtle. I consider myself smart--my education is priority, something that's both a blessing and a burden.

I kind of think a lot of my "successful" artwork is luck. I'm hoping that in time and after more work, I'll have a better idea of where I stand as far as my skill as an artist.

Someday, I'm going to do something big, but I don't know what that will be yet.

Current Residence: Oxford, MS
Print preference: Simple poster prints which I can frame
Favourite genre of music: Rap, rock, club, pop rock, alternative
Favourite style of art: Art Deco, Bauhaus-era Constructivism, & more
Operating System: Mac OS X Lion
MP3 player of choice: iPhone 4
Favourite cartoon character: Spongebob
Personal Quote: Read the lyrics to "Be My Escape" by Relient k, that sums me up pretty well
I've been working on an autobiography of sorts lately. I know I'm only 22, but trust me, I have stories to tell. My purpose for this self-reflection is just that... to reflect on myself, understand why I am the way I am, and to correlate my past with nuances and quirks I seem to have picked up alone the way.

Anyways, I just wanted to (1) encourage this, as it's very therapeutic, and (2) explain why I haven't uploaded any new art lately... just preoccupied. I'd like to finish this thing by the end of August, which I don't think is an unrealistic deadline to set for myself.

Maybe I'll post some of it, see what you guys think. I don't know if it's readable or interesting to others, but I'll post some if someone is willing or interesting enough to read it.

The Rainbow Sheep and Rainbow Llama have found you. They will spit on you (even the sheep) if you don't tag 10 other people!
1. You must tag the person who tagged you.
2. Random rainbow tags are completely okay. (and fiendishly evil XD)
3. If you are rainbow tagged 10 times, you're destined to hug a sheep and ride a llama simultaneously.
You know you want to.
