My Dark Secret . . and also art.

I was the "Allrounder" but now that I'm old, I'm the "Godmother" honestly. Stolen shamelessly off of Tumblr, because, yes, I'm still on that dumpster fire of a site. More of Horokyun's art can be found here: https://twitter.com/horokyun?lang=en
TL;DR:
  • I'm a huge goth and geeky fangirl, and always have been.
  • I have a secret art account with all the artwork that reflects that.

Little known fact about me, at least among my dance friends, is that I was (and am) a seriously goth girl. Sure, I love Pugliese, but Morticia Addams is my real hero. When my parents were frustrated that I decided I didn't want to read anymore (I had strange tantrums), my mom bought me comic books - Creepshow, Fangoria, Tales from the Crypt, Tales of Terror - all the classics.  She also bought me Star Trek and Star Wars novels because (as if being goth didn't make me awkward enough), I was also a huge fangirl of all things science fiction. Soon I was reading like crazy again and my mom won the day. (Really, I was the one who won because I read like an absolute maniac after that.)

All this is to say that my non-tango life is, as it is for many people, quite different from my tango life. It comes as no surprise then that my non-tango art is radically different from my tango art.

I have lately been encouraged by my few friends who know about my non-tango, non-dance art to share my "other life" because some of my tango friends might also have such tastes and it might be fun to let my freak flag fly.
So here goes . . .
My non-tango art work is always under the name "OrionLodubyal". Search for that name on Google and you'll find my art across all my platforms. One note - I never, ever sell my artwork on Amazon. If it turns up there, it has been stolen (again) so please let me know.
Anyone who gets the reference to that name gets a pair of socks of their choice from my shop, It's obscure, yes, but that's what Google was made for.  Hint, search "Orion Lodubyal" with a space. Tell me what you find in the comments, or shoot me a message. If you want to follow me, and my crazy art, on the social medias, look me up on Twitter as @orionlodubyal.

The OrionLodubyal account has my fan art, pop art, psychedelic fractal art and Halloween/classic horror art. It is definitely not to everyone's taste. One of the art contests I participated in was labeled "GoreFest" - so you've been warned. But if you're into Star Trek, Penny Dreadful, The Prisoner (is anyone reading this old enough to have watched The Prisoner?), Hannibal, Doctor Who, Good Omens, Sabrina and a smattering of other fandoms - you may get a giggle out of some of my art. 
Several pieces of my fan art pieces are even licensed by the brands, such as my Prisoner, Penny Dreadful and a few of the Star Trek designs. Others didn't make the cut. For some reason, CBS didn't like my "Gorn to Be Wild" piece. Different strokes for different folks. So much for my Gorn Biker Gang concept I was working on.

Here's my side art account on Redbubble, on Society6, and on TeePublic (where I only have my fan art and pop art - no dance art account.)

Second puzzle, if anyone can guess what I'm going to cosplay at the San Antonio Celebrity Fest Comic Con in June, you get a free t-shirt of your choice from my shop. Credit given for just the fandom and race - not specific character.

And don't worry if you don't want anyone else to know your fandom tendencies - you can also message me through blogger or any of my art platforms.
