David Bythewood
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a dabbler. I am a creator. I am a teacher. Among my hobbies are lapidary, carving, sewing, cooking, poetry, short stories, world design, game design, roleplay, photography, graphic manipulation and creation, DJing, bump making, parody writing, remixing, recording parodies, altering and decorating hats and clothes, making walking sticks, staffs, and canes, and generally anything else that comes into my head. I cannot draw to save my life, but I love to read, I love to create, I love to reach out and touch the lives of others, and be touched in turn. I am a husband. I am a father. I am a bird owner. I am student. I am too many things for a brief paragraph to possibly communicate. So come know me, and let me know you. On KoL I am known as the DJ Prima Vera Angelhair.

Over the last couple of years my personal style has really... evolved. I've changed, and I've pushed a lot of my skills to new limits. I keep pushing them farther, learning more, and seeing just what I can do in myriad fields. I enjoy sharing what I learn with others, and hope to both take and give inspiration in the process.

Hat Collection

Tiny Little Assassin

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 16, 2014, 1:00 AM

This little one hitched a ride on my hat and found its way inside after a walk earlier today.
I spotted it and took some pictures and video before ferrying it back outside.
I originally thought it to be a praying mantis, but have since been informed
 that it is an assassin bug nymph, likely of the genus sinea.
Much like mantids, they use their folding forearms to seize and hold prey.
