Interviews Re-Rap
It's been a busy 5 months since I took over Skins & Themes. In that short space of time, amongst everything else, I have conducted 10 interviews with skinners and 4 interviews with the people behind the software we all use.
For anyone that may have missed them, here is a re-cap of the 14 interviews I have conducted. I urge you to check them all out, hell, even :+fav: them to show your support for some of the biggest names in skinning and some of the biggest names in software. They all took the time to speak to us. You got's to love the community spirit :D

The mysterious chicken
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
I'm a trained graphic designer but some how ended up working in electrical retail. Wasted talent or lack of direction? who knows.

I make stupid jokes when uncomfortable.

Current Residence: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Favourite genre of music: Eclectic
Operating System: Windows 7
Personal Quote: If I live, I will kill you. If I die you are forgiven, such is the rule of honour.
So um,'s been a while and that possible return just didn't happen. What the fuck happened to dA? Do you even mod bro? I took a quick look through the emoticons gallery to see what was going on, what with a new generation of animators etc but like wut. My eyes. So many GIFs and photo packs, the mods had a pretty hard time back in the day but it wasn't this bad..was it? Maybe nostalgia has tainted my memory.

What's been going on? does anyone even still use this? I joined eight years ago next month, I should probably do something to commemorate that. Any suggestions? I don't think I have the skill to emote any more, my eyes are fucked after years of computer use and I'm just too damn old. Maybe I'll do a give-away or something, am I still cool enough to do a give-away? is that a thing now? Back in my day Icon Interlude was the boss and we gave things away dammit! :shakefist:

Anyways, I'll check in again soon.
