Ahoy there! My name is TheArtistRose. Nothing more, notes less. The name explains itself. Unlike most people who go by the name Rose, my name actually is Rose.
Rate whatever you want, block, add, reading, or don't. I'm not here for adding, I would like to make friends. :) So please message me for a conversation. Hardly anyone does anymore.
I am not on as often as I used to be. I am a professional artist. I draw portraits of people for free. If you would like to know more, I have a member page on here about it.
I think its much cooler than a protection stamp. Something hand crafted. Way too many people pull things off of photobucket or PhotoShop images that aren't there's. Which, I suppose, I have no say about, but most aren't done with respect to the artist they stole from. So please think about where you take your images from. I know we've all been down that road.
I also design custom phone cases in a store on the corner of St.Marks Place. What is St.Marks Place? The heart of the village. The village is the LES, lower east side of Manhattan. It's famous for most rockers who have shopped, hung out and made videos there. That's right, if you haven't guessed, I'm a New Yorker.
Are you a Batman fan? So am I!
You know what I have in common with Harley Quinn? She is from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, just like I. Unfortunately, I don't have the accent. But if there's anything I learned, its that we have the best cannolis!
I'm a big foodie. I love talking about good food and cooking. Though, I am not a baker. Which is probably a good thing. I'm a vegetarian, but don't let that fool you. I can make a mean burger. I didn't do it for the animals, I became one for my health.
A lot of people don't like reading this on a profile, but I will because I am proud. I'm happily engaged to my amazing fiancé. I love him very much. He means the world to me and I can't wait to marry him. He's a vegetarian too, by the way. Mr.Perfect. I have a member page about the water color painting I gave him. He also has a profile on here, but doesn't log on. Which is more than okay by me. :)
I'm a dreamer. In the summer of 2014, I met Amanda Palmer at one of her concerts and she signed my ukulele. I'm a big fan of her music and her book- The Art of Asking. If you haven't read it, you should. Its been a real life saver to me.
Although I'm a successful artist, who has had a show and will have more in the future, I am still a starving one. I help support my mom and sister.
Working well over 61 hours a week.
I work as a home health aide and a medical office janitor.
I have a lot of energy on my hands. But I don't make enough to live lavishly. I can be found doing gigs on the street for free, while people give me food or donations. I am not ashamed to ask. Never be afraid to chase your dreams. Go! Run! Hurry!
I have had a few newspaper articles written about me. Minor ones.
I once won an ice cream contest in 2014. For Ripley's believe it or not. They wanted people to name an odd flavor ice cream on Facebook. I was one of the top 5 picked out and got as many votes as I could. My flavor was falafel ball ice cream. :D
I won 4 tickets to the museum, my ice cream featured on ice cream day, two quarts of my ice cream, and my name and picture on the marquee in Times Square.
I have a few cats at home. I love animals, but I wouldn't want to live in nature. I'm a city girl, always will be. Cats are the only animals that seem to get me. They're family. I should have a few pictures in my portfolio.
I'm a history junkie when it comes to learning about my city. I often go to Coney island. Been going since I was a featus. I remember when you could order an egg cream. For those of you who don't know what that is, you haven't lived till you had one. It's seltzer, milk and Fox's U-bet syrup.
I come from many cultures but mostly identify at as Jewish. There are people of all 3 major religions in my family lines. Although I am not super religious, I feel it's a waste to throw who you are away.
I love bod mods. I currently have 5 tattoos and 14 piercings. I even have Amanda Palmer's signature tattooed on the back of my neck. Woohoo! I feel like its an art of asking blessing lol.
Did I mention that I love comedy? My favorite comedian is Sarah Silverman. I wish I could meet her one day.
I don't watch many tv shows or new movies. I do love old classics, like the Marx brothers, Bella Lugosi, the munsters, Addams family, the three stooges, the honeymooners, abbot and Costello, etc. You get the idea.
I used to really be into manga and Japanese stuff, like anime, but these days I'm into independent comics. Such as Zines.
My favorite indie comic is Ghost World- By Daniel Clowes. One day I hope to buy his 8 ball collection. I also love the film. And the film Art school confidential. If you've ever been to an art class, that movie will speak volumes.
I will add more to my profile later. I wanted to switch it up after 5 years. I have changed and grown a lot since then.
