Alexander Engel-Hodgkinson
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Now that I'm a published indie author, I've branched out a little bit. I'm also on Goodreads, for anyone that's curious; you can check out my profile by searching 'Alexander Engel-Hodgkinson.' ...Probably. My official Facebook page, which I will be updating regularly, is linked at the bottom. Also my Twitter is @NexusEngel. ^-^

Current Residence: In the deep, dark depths of my own subconscious.
Favourite genre of music: Almost any kind of rock, techno, OSTs, and classical.
Favourite style of art: Anime (Shonen, Shojo, pretty much any style as long as the characters don't look supremely deformed or ugly), surreal, black and white (including contrast works), and watercolor paints.
MP3 player of choice: Headrush--because 'Headbang' is so last season's concussion.
Wallpaper of choice: Black Rock Shooter or Akira or Ghost in the Shell or any cyberpunk-themed desktop wallpaper
Skin of choice: The only skin I have
Favourite Cartoon Characters: Deadpool, Black Rock Shooter, Dante (Devil May Cry), Batman, Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Kamina (Gurren Lagann), Sakata Gintoki (Gintama), Alucard (Hellsing Ultimate), and Moon Knight
Favourite Movie Characters: Jules Winnfield (Pulp Fiction), Inspector 'Tequila' Yuen (Hard Boiled), Brother Mark (A Better Tomorrow), Ken (A Better Tomorrow II), John McClane (Die Hard), John Matrix (Commando), Sergeant Hartman (Fullmetal Jacket).
Personal Quotes: Because (-INSERT WHATEVER HERE-) are cool; Real men stare at walls; What the hell is this, I don't even...; because I'm just THAT. DAMN. AWESOME; Hwunh?; That is BADASS; VICTORY WAVE!! *Waves arms back and forth*; NO, I do NOT like WWE!; Piss off. (Lots other sarcastic/cynical comments I don't feel like writing out)
Likes: Awesome anime with well-developed/thought-out/executed plots and characters; Drawing; Daydreaming; watching violent/dark movies; listening to music; ignoring idiots; back talking big-mouthed idiots, especially if those idiots are cops who don't know what the hell they're doing; ranting about things I like; coming up with new stories to write; writing those stories; constantly trying to surpass myself in everything I do; Grindhouse flicks and other intentionally/unintentionally trashy movies.
So 'The Tea Party Affair' is off to a damn good start, having just gotten its second five-star review.  Three reviews, two fives, one four-star, and I'm really pleased people are enjoying it so far.  I'm reaching out to more people along the way, but I seem to be getting people's attention, so that makes me happy. ^-^

In other news, I'm still making progress on 'Dark-Boy, Vol. 3' and 'I Keep My True Love in the Basement/REMIX', although I still have a bit of a ways to go with both of them, still.  I'm aiming to complete and publish 'REMIX' by mid-September, at the most, but we'll see how it goes.

I haven't been drawing much lately, since I've been writing, getting distracted by movies, and review-swapping with other authors (for those who don't quite know: review-swapping is basically when two independent authors trade each other free copies of a specific book so that they can get a review in exchange for a review.  It's a great way to promote, in a way, since ratings and reviews can help determine whether or not a curious browse-clicker will be interested in buying/reading it your book--and it helps both authors out).

All in all, I'm still making good progress on the writing.  I ought to get more artwork drawn to help promote my upcoming volumes, along with the five works that're already out!
  • Mood: Wow!
  • Listening to: Cowboy Bebop OST, other random stuff
  • Reading: Indie novels, manga
  • Watching: Action movies, Cowboy Bebop
  • Playing: Far Cry: Predator: Instincts, GTA V
  • Eating: Your soul
