Who is Cute or Death?
All About Cute or Death!
Cute or Death (aka me) is an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, metalhead, video game addict, and lover of candy.
If you'd like to learn a bit about the girl who keeps making Pokemon lenses, and/or want to see some of my photos and artwork, please read on. :)
Oh yeah, and I have a mohawk (and a large collection of wigs). If you like my avatar picture, you can view the full set from that photoshoot here: cuteordeath on Flickr
I've been using the online handle "cuteordeath" for about 6 years, and I'm often asked what it's supposed to mean. A lot of people think it's a reference to the Eddie Izzard sketch "cake or death", but I didn't mean it to specifically be associated with him. Basically, it means that I live and die for cute things, and if I couldn't have cute, I'd have to accept death.
Things I Like
- Heavy Metal: especially Power Metal, Glam Metal, and Traditional Heavy Metal
- Video Games: I am particularly fond of Nintendo handhelds (Game Boy to 3DS), RPGs, puzzle games, and life-sims.
- Make-up: I am obsessed with MAC and LUSH Cosmetics.
- Anything Cute & Kawaii: I love cute cartoon characters, stationery, plushies, toys...if it's cute (and especially if it's pink), I'll probably love it.
- Tea: camellia sinensis, that is. I worked for a tea company for 2.5 years, and know a great deal about tea. I drink about 12 cups of it a day! >_>
- Fashion: I could look at fashion blogs and shopping sites all day long. My favorite places to buy clothes are Closet Child and Hot Topic (they're cheap. :p)
- Food: I love all kinds of cuisine, but especially Japanese, Thai, Mexican, and Vegan (I'm not vegan, but there's something about vegan food that's so, so tasty.)
Things I Enjoy Doing
- Baking: I've been baking since I was a small child, and I've been baking exclusively vegan for about 5 years.
- Modelling: Not professionally, but I love doing photoshoots with my friends!
- Writing: Otherwise, why would I be here? ^^
- Art & Design: I have worked as a graphic designer for 3 years. (I *almost* have a degree in Graphic Design, but I am on hiatus from school because I was offered an awesome full-time job!) I have been drawing, sewing, and crafting (a recently discovered passion of mine is book-binding) since I was a small child.
A few samples of my art and design. :D
I really, really love cute things.
I made this cupcake dress-up game a few years ago. Try it!

Things I Do Not Like
- Watching Sports: makes me sleepy.
- Mean-Spirited People: being cruel to others does nothing but show your own crippling insecurities.
- Dishonesty: nothing good ever comes from telling lies.
Check out my eBay auctions!
I sell various things on eBay from time to time, mostly anime stuff.
Is there anything you'd like to see from me? Better yet, now that you know what I like, do you have anything you'd like to show me? ^_^
