Hey folks,

Whether it's catchy or interesting enough I don't care :P Here's something from me.

23 years old.
I've been playing guitar for a couple of years now and it is finally starting to sound like something.
More important: My education is called ICT & Media Design(IMD). Right now I'm in the second year and I took Lifestyle as a secondary profession. Really, really awesome study!

What can I do?
-I design websites: HTML; CSS; Java; jQuery; PHP. Such are the programming languages i possess.
-I craft guitars.(more for a hobby)
-I can take professional pictures for any purpose.
-I can create visual art for a company such as: Logo's, Splashmarks and other designs.
-I use the following programs: Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for designs and Notepad++for coding
-I'm studying the current skills: Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere; Audacity, Reaper.

My greatest quality is leadership. That is my key to success. Past few years I've been training myself to it. I've analysed which traps lie ahead of me and what I can do with this skill. I can lead a group and I've never failed before doing so. Most dangerously are those who don't do their work properly, or don't do it at all. I've managed to coach them on a way that they actually do something and even do it as they should.

Music: I hail all rock 'n roll legends. Dead or alive, English, American, hell even Chinese, if they have any... Just kidding!! Bands like Iron Maiden, Kiss, Judas Priest, Dio, Dire Straits, etc. always put a smile on my face :). I do also like metal, from Nightwish to Megadeth. From Led Zeppelin to Alestorm and everything in between. So it's simple, play the guitar, scream loud hit the drums and Rock 'n Roll!!

Current Residence: Netherlands
Favourite genre of music: Rock

man, your guitars are amazing!

I actually have a homemade guitar (that was made by my brother) that was telecaster-ish with a sunburst color. it kinda reminded me of yours.

still, I especially like the legend of Zelda ukelele/guitar and the nuclear reactor stratocaster. well, of course I like those the most because they're the only two that you've uploaded!

so yeah. what kind of music do you like? I like new wave and shoegazing.

and about my dead friend/classmate? I don't want to talk about it. I just deleted the journal entry about it.

so yeah

At first, thanks for the compliment!

Yes the stratocaster with the reactor style was to be a failed project untill I found out that "rust" would work out just fine ;) haha

Currently my third guitar is almost(!) done. It took me alot of time to build it because of the abstract form. I'll upload a picture of it today. After that I'm going to make a unique flying V guitar. The current one is more BC Rich Warlock style.

I still want to make an acoustic Zelda guitar, but at the moment I don;t have a heat press for the sides, so it's a no go ;)

My music style is very wide. I respect any sort of music that actually has a meaning, but I can listen to rock and metal endlessly.
What style? Classic metal(Priest, Maiden, Axel Rudi Pell,Dio, etc.) and rock/hardrock(anything u can name really. From Led Zeppelin to Airbourne and everything in between).

I am currently busy recording/sound designing. But guitars will always have my priority!

And tanks again for the interest :)
