Art Students search for a Pen Friend

Name: Kirpet
Age: 28
Gender: Female
Location: SWFL / Chicago
Language: English

About Me: I’m a full time art student at SAIC (junior) working towards my BFA with VCS Thesis (will be applying to Yale for my MFA in under a year!). So I spend the spring and fall months in Chicago and go back home to SWFL during winter and spring, so my address will switch back and forth throughout the year.

I talk about art a lot mainly conceptual, not illustration/mainstream art (not trying to sound “hip” just being honest)  and my job at The Bob Rauschenberg Gallery. I love artists like Ann Hamilton, Keith Edmier, Noelle Mason, Lucy Orta,, Dave Muller, etc. I work in the fiber, sculpture and performance departments and I’m starting Intro to Sound next semester.

I have PTSD from a shitty childhood, sexual abuse and the like, and these are topics I like to talk about from time to time. My research and artwork deals a lot with personal trauma, finding comfort and understanding the world. So if talking about abuse, self-analysis, pedophiles and society is triggering for you it’s probably best we not be pen friends.


Music: My taste is all over the map. In the past few months I’ve been to a local blues club, saw Joe Bonamassa (for a second time) and am going to see The Psychedelic Furs Saturday evening. I also love David Bowie, The Ramones, The Goo Goo Dolls (Superstar Carwash-Gutterflower), Kraftwerk, Penguin Café Orchestra, 90’s country. I also like musicals i.e Hamilton, Sweeney Todd, Hairspray,  Les Miserables, etc.

Films: Again all over the map. Animated kids movies, anime, documentaries, fantasies, musicals, etc. (currently watching/listening to Mary & Max for the umpteenth time).

TV Shows: I don’t really watch TV shows unless they’re available to stream online. Currently loving the Netflix series Gourmet Samurai also watching Transparent, West Wing, Frankie and Grace, Troll Hunter, love People of Earth too.

Books: Again I’m all over the place. The books currently within reach of me are: Haddon Hall When David Invented Bowie, Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home and Are You My Mother? Instrumental A Memoir of Madness, Medication and Music, Lucy Orta Body Architecture, Keith Edmier January 11 – February 28, 1997 and Graphicstudio Uncommon Practice USF, along with a handful of interviews.

Anime: The three I remember finishing and loving over the last year or so are: Orange, Silver Spoon and Psycho-Pass. Studio Ghibli is always on reply and Shin Chan is always there for a laugh and of course I’ve enjoyed classics such as Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, Ghost in the Shell, etc.

Interesting Facts:
I have quite a few, being in art school they just keep racking up, lol.



PenPal Information:

How many do you have?  0 (had one for nearly a decade but sadly people grow a part)

How many do you want?  No more than 3

E-mail or snail mail? Snail Mail please (down to add on FB if we hit it off)
How long are your letters? They can get pretty long tbh.

How long does it take you to reply to a letter? Every few weeks or so, as I mentioned they can be pretty lengthy. I prefer to send one long one rather than multiple short ones.

Handwritten or typed? Hand written

Gender preference: Either or, just as long as you realize I’m not looking for a relationship.

Age preference: 20+

Where? Continental US (I’m lazy and just like to slap a forever stamp on my letters)

What are you looking for in a penpal? Someone who would love to read about the work I’m creating and be interested in learning new things. Just as I’m hoping to learn new things from you, be it new methods/techniques, foods or musicians, movies, books, and artists. I want to learn about you and would like for you to want to learn about me.

Hello!

Name: Allison
Age: 26
Location: Eastern USA

About Me: I am very odd and eclectic. I am a professional musician, so it kind of comes with the territory. My interests are quite varied: I love reading, graphic design, music of all kinds, art, nature, anything antique, the Victorian era in particular, religion, and history. I am a Christian and that is a huge part of my life, but I do not let differences of faith dictate who I am close to. Having meaningful conversations is one of my favorite things to do; my ideal perfect evening is a quiet dinner and conversation with friends.

Movies: Most of the movies that I love are movie adaptations of my favorite books. Harry Potter, The Lord of the rings, Jane Eyre, A Little Princess, Lolita, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, The Vampire Chronicles, and The Phantom of the Opera to name a few. Some other favorite films include Star Wars, Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Legally Blonde, Elf, and The Mummy.

Music: Classical music is my favorite, but I can enjoy (or at least appreciate) almost anything.

Video Games: World of Warcraft! It's the one and only video game I've ever played, but I love it.

TV Series: Once Upon a Time, Switched at Birth, Sister Wives, Catfish, Dexter, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, True Blood, I Love Lucy, Pretty Little Liars, The Big Bang Theory, Frasier, The Tudors, and Sleepy Hollow, to name a few. My TV tastes are also eclectic, as you can see.

Books: Those mentioned above under movie adaptations are my favorites, particularly The Lord of the Rings and Jane Eyre. Jane is my spirit animal - I relate to her on such a deep level. I probably read Jane Eyre at least once per year. As with movies and television, I have an eclectic taste in books as well. I particularly love the classics, but I'm open to anything that's a good read.

Pen pal Info:

What are you looking for in a penpal? I've recently had a bit of a falling out with my best friend of 20 years, and most of my other friends are somewhat far away at the moment since I am now out of college. I would really like to have a penpal that I can connect to and have super deep, meaningful conversations with. Some of the best friends I've ever had have been people I've met through Livejournal and only ever corresponded with, so I know that strong friendships through correspondence is not only possible but a very special friendship.

How many penpals do you currently have? None on any regular basis.

How many do you want? 2-3 at most

Do you want email pals? Sure! Email, texting, etc. are all great with me.

Do you want snail mail pals? Yes

How long are your letters/emails? 2-3 pages for letters, 5-6 paragraphs for email.

Reply time? Within 2 days for email, within a week for letters.

Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Either is good with me.

Where would you like them to be from? Anywhere! However, I only speak English and French.

If you think that we would get along well, please comment and I will send you my contact info!

Hello All!

Name: Yesenia
Age: 30
Location: Southern California

About Me: I am an office assistant in a healthcare company. I’m still/again in school making my way to a BA and hopefully an MA. I am single, never married, with no children. I’ve recently gotten into cooking, baking and loom knitting. I am a DIY junkie and I’ve come across journal making recently so I am looking to try my hand in that.

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, drawing, going to the movies, cooking/baking, DIY, knitting.

Movies: Action, adventure, thrillers, fantasy, science fiction and the occasional cheesy, feel-good make-sure-none-of-your-friends-find-out-you-like kind (romance usually lol).

Music: I’m stuck in the 90’s. Really, I am so anything new, unless it is in a movie and I SoundHound it, is pretty much lost to me. Now with that I will say that my playlist is very varied. Just to name a few I have banda, cumbia, salsa, boy bands, pop princesses, ska, classical, Bollywood, Spanish pop, Celtic, musicals, soundtracks, alternative etc. I am all over the board really.

Video Games: Wow, umm well the only games I really ever played and enjoyed were Mario Brothers (on an old school Nintendo), Spyro, Rayman, Snowboarders, and Medevil on an original Playstation. I tried WoW but I was lost. I suspect I’d need to purchase the book on rules and gameplay before I pick that up again.

TV Series: Bones, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order, CSI, Criminal Minds, Flip or Flop, Gilmore Girls (it’s back!), Shadowhunters and I’m horribly behind Nashville and Revenge.

Pen pal Info:

What are you looking for in a penpal? A Friend to talk to about anything. Especially someone who talks/writes back.

How many penpals do you currently have? 0

How many do you want? As many that are willing J

Do you want email pals? Maybe, but I prefer snail mail.

Do you want snail mail pals? YES, this is a must.

How long are your letters/emails? That depends really. I talk a lot which translates to writing a lot and randomly. I think faster than I can write so when I talk and write it can be a little spastic but I think that just makes it much more interesting. Also, it would depend on my penpal and what the contents of their letter would say.

Reply time? I am a little impatient, but I’m also busy and easily distracted soooo no more than a week unless real life is kicking my butt. I love receiving mail – not just bills or junk – so I’ll try to responds ASAP.

Would you like your penpal to be male or female? Female.

Where would you like them to be from? Anywhere.

Any specific age? 25+
