About
Watermelon is my favorite gum flavor. My circumstances make me feel empowered. PATUXENTWHATDON'T STOPGETITGETIT I like Swiss tournaments better than Swiss cheese. I think stuffing suitcases is a beautiful art form. I am not ridin' dirty. I think Jonathon Coulton is a sophisticated mans Tenacious D. Orange Islands was a filler arc. Soccer balls are better than frisbees. Exo Squad was a great cartoon. My sister is a great conversationalist. I scream like a girl if you pull my leg hairs.

Nkirkpatrick.com Now Online!

Welcome! This is the first public version of my website. Nkirkpatrick.com is finally online. I’m really happy that it’s up. I’ve been wanting to get this thing ready and online for a while but it always seemed there was something in the way.

I tell my friends that this website is like a big rock. I am trying to push this rock up a hill. When I get it to the top of the hill, it’s going to feel so good and I can finally move on with my life. This website (the fact that I did not have it online yet) has caused a lot of trouble for me. But now it’s finally up and I am ready to make use of it!

Expect me to update this site with new artworks and new features from time to time.

At the home page, you can see an example of my latest work. You can double-click on it if you’ like to see the full version. Let me know if there are any broken links or if you notice anything wrong with the site.

Looking for Work

What is this website all about? I’m a computer artist from Southern Maryland. I am looking for work. It helps to have online examples of my work I can point to. Who am I? Below is a bio from a previous version of my website:


“My interest in computer art was activated in 1996, when I saw a program on my computer that came with Windows 98, known as Microsoft Paint. In my ignorance, I thought it was a game, as it resembled a video game I played as a child, Mario Paint. Only a few years later, I discovered its practical uses. I remember using it for practical jokes; I tricked my 9th grade Spanish teacher into believing that I once traveled to Panama.

In high school, I stepped into the realm of non-recreational use of computer art (I also evolved past using Microsoft Paint). I was able to make graphics to help me in many assignments. I could reach levels of efficiency I had never experienced without computers.

After high school, I acquired 59 credits at the College of Southern Maryland. I was accepted to St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2006, and have been allowed to seek a student-designed major in Computer Art.”


Anyway, I’m looking for work. You can see examples of my art on the portfolio page. You can take a look at my résumé too. I’m always interested in finding new things to do. If you are interested in hiring me, my email address is nicholaskirkpatrick@hotmail.com

However, and here’s the part that drives us all a little nuts — unlike other entertainment franchises, superhero comics are aimed at an audience of hobbyists who regard these stories not so much as light entertainment, but rather as historical dispatches from an alternate universe. What I see when I look at the history of all these different versions of Green Lantern is this — the common factor to all of them is writers laboring under the lunatic misconception that this fictional entertainment really is history — Comic Book Resources
