Okay...I don't know who would want to read this, but here it goes...

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 6 years.

2.
What does your username mean? I've had this username for my Yahoo account for 15 years. Gulliver's Travels signifies my love of things gigantic and or tiny, depending how you look at it. "63" is the year I was born.

3. 
Describe yourself in three words. God, I hate this - it makes me sound so darned conceited. Artistic, Musical, Creative. I only threw in the "Creative" part, as I was the "idea man" in my college commercial art courses.

4. 
Are you left or right handed? Right.

5. 
What was your first deviation? A pen and ink pic I did back in 1989 of my favorite dungeons and dragon character, Morgund the Mage Morgund the Mage .

6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Cartoons with pen and art design markers, usually something to do with macrophile giant/tiny subject matter. Definitely cartoons

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Probably surrealism, which I greatly admire.

8. What was your first favourite? Joanna Dark commission by gb2k Joanna Dark commission . And it's still filled with awesome.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I fav a wide variety of art, but mostly what really catches my eye as being very good.

10. I would have to say Kaspired kaspired.deviantart.com/, as he has driven me to be as good an artist as I should be. I've held his art in my hands (and have some on my wall), and have drawn with him in my kitchen. If you think the guy's marker work looks good in dA, you should see it when you're holding it.

11. 
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I would have to say kiff57krocker kiff57krocker.deviantart.com/ . This could very well happen in the not-too-distant future. I get to show him the studio, and treat him to Cincinnati-style chili spaghetti.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? This is a tougher question to answer, as several people have mentored me over the years. I've mentioned Kaspired, who taught me the ropes to doing really good perspective. It's just nice having friends here in dA, as my work doesn't permit me to have much of a life.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Mainly pencils, manga pens, and Prismacolor/Copic markers.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? My studio, of course - that extra room that my mother-in-law just had to freaking have. Also known as Casa de Futurama and the man cave.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? I would have to say that it was the nice young woman, I can't recall her name, who took my drawing of Amy Wong's daughter 'Little Annie' Kroker to a hair dresser and told the lady, "I want my hair to look like this." I thought that was one of the biggest honors I ever received. I'd started a fashion trend! The greatest joy for me is knowing that I've brought some joy (and laughter!) to other people's lives. If I've made someone chuckle, I've done my job well.

Beanstalk Edna by Gulliver63
Beanstalk Edna
This is truly the forgotten project. I started this about a month ago, and it got shoved aside. I had a really slow morning at work, and was able to finish most of it up. It was really fun doing the colors for her outfit, and being a fashionable giantess, she has duck blue boots. She also has a mace the size of a small maple tree. Poor Bart has to run over hill and dale to avoid getting stomped.

     I did this, and a couple more science fiction ideas with Lisa Simpson.

     Simpson characters are the property of Matt Groening.

Doc Simpson by Gulliver63
Doc Simpson
Mike, I wanted to totally surprise you with this. The idea just hit me, and I went with it. Many young people out there won't be familiar with the Doc Savage novels, but in my time they were in every library. I do remember seeing the 1975 film, which might not be saying much. But the covers were always filled with awesome cache.coverbrowser.com/image/d… .  I went out hunting around the other day to find one of these novels in the used book store, but didn't have much luck. I didn't have much better luck at my library, which is a pretty good one. Anyway, here we see our hero with his best gal from Springfield, and with his donuts from "Mr. Donut." Time to save the world...we have our donuts with sprinkles. BTW, I had a huge bunch of fun designing a 1940's outfit for Marge.

I own neither the Simpsons characters, or Doc Savage.

Safety in the Cathedral by Gulliver63
Safety in the Cathedral
Long before she was in "American Dad," Francine Smith co-starred with Zapp Brannigan in "Valley of the Giants." After the giant Lois and Marge have broken loose of their chains, they go on a destructive rampage through the Mexican city. Here is the lobby poster I did last December gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… . This was another project that just came to me, but wasn't easy like some other projects; I had to do some planning on this one, as I was working from a photo with lots of shading img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… . Hard as it was, dang was it fun. This angle of seeing her outside of the cathedral doors was fun. I had made a couple of sketches when I did the poster project, and wanted to do at least one more. Oh, and I had another project related to this one gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/…

I own none of these characters, or the Warner Brothers movie "Valley of the Gwangi."

Dr. Cyclops' Deep Slumber by Gulliver63
Dr. Cyclops' Deep Slumber
I was taking a look through my gallery, and came across the series of Dr. Cyclops pictures that I did three years ago (has it been that long?). I had not planned this picture; I just did it. I did a quick doodle on a sticky note, and was off like a shot. Amy Wong lifting Leela's finger was an absolute last-minute idea, and I'm glad I did it (I was originally going to just have her tip-toe in to get the glasses). 

     Here are some of the series: gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… and gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… and, of course, the movie poster gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… .

     I also did a series of Family Guy pics: gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… and gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/… and gulliver63.deviantart.com/art/…

I own neither Futurama or Dr. Cyclops.

Book Cover by Gulliver63
Book Cover
Last night I went exploring through dA land and came across a couple of artists with fantastic book covers - I hope they don't mind me blathering about them - timothyandersonart.deviantart.… and tonyfleecs.deviantart.com/ . Not only did these two folks make a fabulous cover, but they aged and dog-eared the cover as well - they looked like those wonderful old books I find in my used bookstores. When I saw the work they did, I immediately wanted to jump in and play. I went digging through my books, and came across the H. G. Wells novel "Food of the Gods," which I bought around 30 years ago as a used book. In Corel I tried to age the pic with my gauss blur and add noise options, and then added a layer where I could add the scratches and worn areas. While it comes nowhere near what these guys have done, I was pretty happy with the result. I would like to try more of these as the days go on.

I own neither Edna Krabappel or the Berkley Medallion book cover.

I write gobs of fanfiction, mainly involving Futurama. I've written a few stories involving the Simpsons. Here's a major chunk of what I've written: www.futurama-madhouse.net/fanf…

Rush is a good band too. What's your favourite song by them?

I think for years it's been "Entre Nous". As you look at my art in my gallery, just about every piece was done with either "Permanent Waves" or "Hemispheres" playing in the background. Rush and Yes are the staples of what I listen to in the studio.

Oh, haven't heard of those songs. I only know the popular ones.

I consider Permanent Waves to be the best of their albums. That and Moving Pictures were my high school albums. Signals came out when I was in college.

Basically not, because I just don't have the time.
