:star: for stock: please send me a link of the final work, and give me credit please in the description. thank you!

my name is miechelle (me-shell). my dad, has always been a beatles fan. so my name was adjusted to sound like paul singing 'michelle' miechelle..my belle.

mishkuu has been my nickname ever since i was in 7th grade (1997) by my friends. to this day, how they came up with it remains a mystery. i'm still called it to this day by different groups of friends.

dA says i have been on here for 10years - i made the account and it sat around till 2007. so technically i've only been on here for 7years.

i have a BA in cultural anthropology and a certificate (an in-between a BA and a MA) in asian studies. anything artsy is a loved hobby of mine. (music, photography, drawing, digital art) i am a main volunteer-photographer for www.oneofakindpets.com - a wonderful animal rescue located in akron, ohio.

i take my camera wherever i go, it's an panasonic dmc-lz7, Olympus PEN E-PL1 (with various lenses). i have not taken photography classes either - just me experimenting with my lovely little camera.

i take a lot of pictures, but i draw some too. also used to work with photoshop a lot making layouts for my now, deceased website - back when domains where really big. i might in the near future, start messing around with my photos in photoshop, there are a few now - but i plan to make more.

i studied abroad in 2006 in japan through temple university japan - was there for 4 months. i traveled a lot while attending school for cultural anthropology. i also went on vacation there in 2009 - 8 days in tokyo, and 8 days in okinawa. i have also traveled to mexico in 2013, and was there for a week with my husband.

oh, i also hate to type in capitals..
other hobbies of mine: movies, tattoos, videogames, history, comparative studies, swimming, traveling, and being random. dinosaurs (and pre-dinosaur creatures) i find to be neato as well. DUNKLEOSTEUS FTW.
i'm also obsessed with grasshoppers, mantids, frogs, birds, and other random critters. METROID!! :iconsamusplz:
