I never got around to this before. I am limeywestlake - Neil Westlake from the South of England, now living in British Columbia. I am an artist, illustrator, essayist and motion picture technician working out of the Vancouver Film Studios. Currently I am the graphic designer on ABC's new fantasy series "Once Upon a Time." I must point out, though, most people think I must be rich, but I can assure you I am not. I have an autistic son whose therapy I subsidize, and I can barely afford my housing co-op townhouse.
I am straddling the line between an anarcho-syndicalist and an anarch-primitivist (depending on what side of the bed I get out on.) I believe that white men should get the f- out of doing anything that may correlate to power-broking. We tried that and dropped the ball.
I can be an intolerant and angry asshole some of the time. The other time I am all OM vibes! My Gemini moon makes me a Jeckyl and Hyde type personality and I really can be my own worst enemy. I give myself a hard time much more than others. I am not quite sure why my wife has stayed with me for 12 years, but she insists she still loves me (and she does look at me earnestly when she says that.)
I drink too much often and struggle with depression and anxiety. Wild, passionate sex seems to be my biggest hobby after my giving up on being a doomer (not sexy).
I am the sort of person who complete strangers tell their deepest darkest secrets to.
I believe I must have been a black man (or woman) in a previous life as I am the only person in my pagan circle who worships Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway.
I am, however, getting jaded working for Hollywood. I have this need to lay my hands on people and channel my considerable empathic qualities, but I do not know how that will manifest as yet.
I am a deeply flawed man. I am not sure I would want to be anyone else, however. I do have a very big heart and I can, at times, emanate an incredible love-energy.
If anyone is interested, my portfolio can be viewed here:
However, the time-line on my About Page is messed up a present...
Anyway, that's me. Peace.
