My name is Ylla. I am a girl. I am white. I am 25.
Yes, that is me in the photos.
That covers most of the questions people usually ask me first.

I've lived in many places. I speak almost four languages.
Currently, I live in Chicago, Illinois.
I've been drawing since the summer of 1997.
No, I do not attend an art school. I have a Physics degree from the University of Chicago.
That covers all the questions people usually ask me second.

My current favorite food is steak.
My current favorite art medium is Watercolor.
My current favorite mode of transportation is a Z4 named Bagryonok.
My current favorite animal is a black lab named Lucky.
My current favorite philosophy is Objectivism.
That covers all the questions people usually don't ask.

I make a point of posting a new drawing each time I post in my journal.
You may friend me without asking permission, but I would prefer that you left me a message regarding it, so that I know who you are.
