I’m Kristin, though most people call me Topknot. First it was a nickname, later it was a woman in a series of novels I'm writing. I'm a 22 year old student working on a special education study at home program. If I seem silly, or weird, or air-headed, or even downright stupid, I'm sorry, I can be all those things, sometimes all at the same time, but if I seem rude or mean, you're probably just reading my humor wrong. I haven't been mean to anyone on the internet on purpose in years. Its wrong and to be frank, a waste of my time. So chill guys, I'm really just a goofball at heart.
What I Create: Anything I can get my little hands on. I draw, write, craft, crochet, work with beads, work with wire, snap photos and lots of other small side projects too! I live in rural northern California with my parents and brother, nestled in a valley at the foot of the mountains. I've been dating my wonderful boyfriend Josh for five crazy, educational, fun-filled years.
Why I Create: I like to Worldbuild, in public I work on my project Knights of Nodd, and in a more private setting I am working on a series of novels under the working title of Good Fortune [Remember when I mentioned I'm called Topknot, after this book?]. I also really enjoy working on art for other people, so I offer free sketches to people when I livestream and relish in working on commissioned art. Its an outlet that allows me, at least in some small way, to let the things in my head out, so others can see them too.
As a side note, please, no "Tanks to the watch/fave!" comments, it is my pleasure to follow your art on DA or add it to a collection, no need to thank me. I remove these comments to keep clutter on my page to a somewhat manageable level.
