Current Residence: Clarksburg, USA|
Favourite genre of music: Country, Rock'n roll
Favourite style of art: Cartoons and Animation
Personal Quote: Do. Or do not. There is no try.
1) Real name:
Clark’s the name, cartooning is my game!
To some I as known as the Autistic Cartoonist. The Wizard of Pagonia. The Flash on Wheels! That tall goofy giraffe! Or most commonly, I am known as CK! And in case any of you are going to ask, NO! I do not know what CK stands for…
3) Favorite color:
Purple, Orange, and Blue are my colors. You can tell because those are my first real character’s three main colors.
4) Male or female:
I’d like to think I’m male. Although, I have been drawn as a female before and it was really, really weird…
5) Elementary School:
I had a great time there! I was actually popular back there. Back then I was really into Dr. Seuss and everyone thought I could be the next great Author and Illustrator. For a while, I thought I had a career in books as well. I mean, I had spent enough time in the library. I also spent a lot of time on stage, playing a Christmas hating T-Rex, a dog, or various other characters.
6) Middle School:
Sucked. Majorly. Did not like Middle School at all. Around this time I started getting into comic strips and cartoons, but also around this time I learned what bullying felt like and for the entire sixth grade everyone in my grade teased on me for believing in Santa Claus and being excited for Christmas. True, I did just move to that school, but there was a guy who literally had no arms in my class. He had arms sticking out of his sides and no one harassed him!
7) High School:
If I had to do it over again, I might. Those were some of my best years. I was ironically the school’s wolf mascot (ironically, being I was afraid of wolves at the time), I played Grinch in Seussical, it was some of my best work!
Animation Academy is kind’a like that. It’s a great –if not expensive- opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the graphic design world and all it’s working parts. It’s also a great chance for me to make friends and discuss nerdy stuff. What kids show were creepy, what’s the catchiest TV theme song, what superhero is underrated-
Actually, this seems to be our whole day. xD
9) Hair Color:
Rust brown. It used to be just blond, but I guess my head was tired of looking pale and wanted to throw some color in.
10) Tall or Short:
As a person, I’m tall. As a giraffe, I’m short. I’m like 5’7 at the moment and hope to get to six feet at least once in my life.
11) Sweats or Jeans:
I’m usually a jean guy, since I don’t like sweating. But given the fact that I ride a bike…
12) Phone or Camera:
You can’t play Poker Night 2 on a camera.
13) Health freak:
Not really. Despite the fact that I ride a bike and run fast, I get tired out very easily. Of course, it might help if I drank more water instead of orange soda… Naaaaaaah.
14) Orange or Apple:
Orange soda! Just gimme a can and I’m a jolly man!
15) Do you have a crush on someone:
I did. Once. Now I don’t.
16) Eat or Drink:
I eat pizza and orange soda!
I’m a dude. And more importantly, I’m a dude who’d prefer not to have a super huge, super ugly hole in my ear. I’ve seen some people with earing holes big enough to fit a finger through it! That should NOT be in some person’s ear!
18) Pepsi or Coke:
19) Been in an airplane:
Maybe once, but I was so small back then I couldn’t remember. Since then I have gained a fear of heights and fear of planes so I highly doubt I’d ever get into a plane after that.
20) Been in a relationship:
In the “real world”? Uh, no. In the world of Clarksburg however, I’m in a relationship with the Okapi turned leopard called Kelly Daine. But who knows? Maybe she does exist somewhere in the real world too. I’d like to think so.
21) Been in a car accident:
I personally haven’t, but I know people who have. It’s times like this I’m grateful I ride a bike.
22) Been in a fist fight:
This is one of those rare cases where I have something in common with Batman: I don’t need to fight when I scare. But my tactics differ from Batman. While he likes to be quiet and creepy, I spaz out and freak out my opponent where they start to question whether I’m human, toon, or something else entirely.
24) Best friends:
Of course there’s all of you friends here on deviantART. There are quiet a few it’d take forever to list. Friends like SIM-N, Thyne, Herp-Derp, Kim, AnimatedTigerGirl, Disney-Manga, all those guys. But my best friend forever definitely has to be everyone’s favorite reptile: Crocie. He’s been my friend since age 2 and we’ve been on a lot of adventures. We’re probably gonna be friends until the men in big white coats come and take me away.
25) First award:
It took me FOREVER until I won anything! And when I did, I won some kind’a goody basket for reading the most books during Seuss Week. It seems part of my life will forever be intertwined with Seuss and his wubulous world!
27) First word:
28) Last person you talked to:
Do the little voices in my head count?
29) Last person you thought of:
ThyneOwnSlave She did tag me with this meme after all. That crazy waterstain!
30) Last person you texted:
31) Last persons you watched a movie with:
I watched The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Crane by myself this morning. Lately I’ve been trying to scare myself before I take the bike ride to Animation Academy. Yesterday I came pretty dang close after watching Garfield’s Halloween Adventure. Before you say it, look the special up and pay close attention to the old man talking. Creepy!
32) Last food you ate:
Doritos, of the Nacho Cheese variety. The others are just bad. And of course I had an orange soda to go with it.
34) Last song you listened to:
THIS IS HALLOWEEN!
THIS IS HALLOWEEN!
35) Last thing you bought:
I recently bought It’s A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie on Blu-Ray. I had it on DVD in my Christmas trunk, and I plan on replacing it with the Blu edition. Next I plan on saving some of that money to make other people merry for Christmas. That, and they’re releasing Mickey’s Once and Twice Upon a Christmas on Blu-Ray as well…
36) Last person you hugged:
Pizza. Extra Cheese, Pepproni, it’s the only way to play!
Orange soda, as if I haven’t made this point painfully obvious by now.
The bottom of an idea. Because usually you build up from there and make something great! Or you make a really bad idea that sucks. Either way.
Audrey II, Little Shop of Horrors. I wouldn’t like to meet him in real life though…
Gorillas. How many of you out there were expecting me to say either giraffe or crocodile?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
HEROES IN A HALF SHELL!
WALL•E. It’s a beautiful story that was perfectly executed. It’s a Sci-Fi, a romantic comedy, an animated masterpiece!
HAVE YOU EVER: (Put an X in the brackets if yes)
45) [X] (insert random question here?)
46) [X] celebrated Halloween.
Any Holiday that supports dressing up, scaring the poo out’a people, and then getting free candy for it is all right with me! This year I am dressing up as an Aperture Science Test Subject!
47) [X] had your heart broken.
My school crush. Both our friendship and any affection I might have had for her ended in Middle School. I figured we’d be friends forever. Looks like I was wrong…
48) [ ] went over the minutes/texts on your cell phone.
49) [ ] had someone like you.
51) [ ] got pregnant.
52) [ ] had an abortion.
53) [X] did something you regret.
More times than I can count. After that I make sure I know what I’m doing… and I still goof up. Oh well, live and learn I guess.
54) [X] broke a promise.
Every time I do, I feel like I’m letting someone down. When I was a kid, I swore I wouldn’t be an adult and not become a hypocrite! They break promises and lie so many time it’s like clockwork to them, even if they’re great people. I can’t become that.
55. [X] hid a secret.
The Crush. Then my little brother shouted it out loud… Thanks bro…
56) [ ] pretended to be happy.
I don’t have to, I’m always happy!
57) [X] met someone who changed your life.
AlphaBeta90, that sonuv’a mongoose got me hooked on deviantART and showed me a way to spread my artwork and happiness to other. So thanks a lot you robotroll!
58) [X] pretended to be sick.
More times than I could count! It never worked…
59) [ ] left the country.
No, but I was almost born in Germany!
60) [X] tried something you normally wouldn't try and liked it.
61) [X] cried over the silliest thing.
62) [X] ran a mile.
Freak’n P.E. class.
63) [ ] went to the beach with your best friends.
64) [X] got into an argument with your friends.
That’s how a few ended actually…
65) [X] disliked someone.
Some people can just be a-holes sometimes…
66) [ ] stayed single for 2 years since the first time you had a boyfriend/girlfriend
Nothing. I was just eating a bag of Doritos though. Mmmmmm, Doritos.
The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack and Gary Hoey’s version of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch. My mind is currently trapped between two Holidays.
72) Plans for today:
And here’s the reason why: I’ve got to finish a Holiday card for the Holiday Marketplace, and I also have to finish to final Halloween comics. Both one of the comics and the card is Aliens of the Rock (hence the Gary Hoey music) and the other comic is a Monster Mash I hope you will all enjoy. It’s very nostalgic.
73) Want to become:
Thyne kind’a had the right idea. I wanna be doing what I love. Making stories, making characters, I want Crocie’s name to go down in history some day! I want to make movies, video games, graphic novels, books, anything I can! But most importantly, I wanna bring humor and entertainment to everyone. Because someone’s gotta do it.
74) Want kids:
Maybe. Yeah, sure, I’d like to have a kid. They’d be beautiful like their mother and crazy like their father. They’d play with Crocie, they’d watch their own version of Ninja Turtles (because the franchise will be refreshed again by their time), they’ll ask me for help on homework I can’t help them with, and most importantly I will let them know who their father is! I’ll be their best friend, their worst enemy, and maybe I could even be a Ninja Turtle to them.
75) Want to get married:
As long as the love is built on the foundations of true and not forced love, then heck ya! But I want some participation in the planning and I don’t want it to be a normal, boring wedding. Something tells me I’ll be walking down the aisle with a Big Bird necktie!
#73 pretty much answered this. But as of this point, I’d like to make a career of my art. I’d also like to do something in animation…
77) Lips or eyes:
Blue eyes with glasses in front of them.
78) Shorter or Taller:
TALLER! At least six feet tall.
79) Romantic or spontaneous:
All of the above!
I had some dogs once, but I couldn’t take care of them and my brother was allergic to them all. So a cat might be the way to with me. For the most part they’re pretty dependent and don’t annoy you as long as you change their litter and feed’m. I’d name mine Odie.
81) Nice or strict parent:
I’ve been blessed to have a really great parent who, despite all the odds, manages to handle me and my brother without fail.
82) Hook-up or relationship:
Relationship. There’s a KD for every CK
83) Looks or personality:
Unless I get muscles or let my beard grow out., I don’t think there’s much you can do about my looks. As for the personality, I don’t really think that’ll change much either. I’ll still be the goofball cartoonist I am today.
HAVE YOU EVER:
84) Lost glasses/contacts:
Not really, my glasses are usually right in front of my eyes.
85) Snuck out of a house:
I'm too goody-goody. That’s right Thyne, I just stole your answer!
86) Held a gun/knife for self defense:
Not unless you count the weapons in Team Fortress 2. BTW, Heavy’s the best!
87) Killed somebody:
Do the little voices inside my head count?
88) Broken someone's heart:
89) Been in love:
I wanna know what love is!
90) Cried when someone died:
I’m not really one to cry when someone dies. Maybe because I know that those people live long, fulfilling lives before they kicked the bucket and that’s all that really matters in the end.
DO YOU BELIEVE IN:
I have to! Otherwise I wouldn’t be as funny probably.
They happen everywhere.
93) Love at first sight:
Yes. Yes I do. I’ll know her when I see her…
Yes, I’d like to think that everyone has their own version of Heaven though.
95) Santa Clause:
Again, I have to. He’s hope, he’s joy, he’s that wondrous place of your childhood imagination that reappears every December. Plus, I’m the Holiday Knight. If I didn’t believe, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now would I?
I know one, so yeah.
Again, I know one.
98. Is there one person you really want to be with right now:
99) Do you know who your real friends are:
I think so.
100) Do you believe in God:
I believe in A god.
And now, I figured out what mythical creature I am most like!

Now I tag:
(only with the first meme)
(only with the second meme)
And finally, I am still accepting Ask the Clarktoon questions for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanuka, all the Holidays between now and New Years. I would especially like it if for most of November we got some questions for the Panicked Turkey.
