let’s talk about the physical affects of chronic anxiety because they’re hardly ever acknowledged
- upset stomach and vomiting
- muscle aches
- chronic fatigue
- hormonal problems
- irregular menstrual cycles
- lowered immune system
- shortness of breath
- heart palpitations
it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “
Bionicle Art Squad: Introduction
Bionicle Art Squad is a group of friends who enjoy Bionicle and, obviously, do art involving Bionicle. We hold weekly Art Challenges, geek over art and discuss Bionicle on regular basis in skype group-chat. This blog was created to post our weekly challenges and other collective works.
Current Members of the Squad:
"Hey, I am bionicle artists preferring to go by the name Demi. I got into Bionicle in 2003-2004, but was aware of the franchise since its start in 2001. I dedicated to art in 2005-2006, and since then made it my primary hobby and now aiming to get into industry. I know lots of things about Bionicle canon and never cease to provide facts and info about it, engage into discussions and defend canon at all costs. I also hold a technorealm blog with themugbearer, it’s a Bionicle Alternate Dimension named Technorealm, firstly featured in novels written by Mugbearer and later made into full-blown project with text-based RPG.”
"Im Ruben, otherwise known as "just a drawing cat" on Tumblr, im from Germany, 16 years old and have been a bionicle fan since day one. I learned drawing mostly by just doing it almost everyday since god knows how long and looking up tutorials on this magical place called the internet."
"Hey hey hey, the name’s Fabio. Yiu may also know me as "Faybos" from dA or BZP. Currently 20 years old, I’ve been a fan since Bionicle’s origin in 2001. I’m presently working towards a BA in Animation. Art has been a part of me since I first picked up a pencil and I’m always excited to explore new things to improve my style. Robots and people are my specialty. Pohatu is my favourite toa of the Mata and I support Po-Koro in anything kohli-themed. I’m a proud Canadian and happy to meet new faces."
"Hi! I’m Elissa. Presently, I’m 23. I was born and raised in Upstate New York. I have a BFA in Graphic Design, but I just love to draw! I’ve been a Bionicle fan since 2003, but I’ve been around them a lot longer than that thanks to my brother. Tahu Nuva is my favorite. I tend to draw human Bionicle, but do dabble in the biomechanical. When I’m not drawing, you can find me singing and playing the piano, writing, photographing, or laughing. Nice to meet y’all :)"
"Hi, I’m Tom from Angle-land and I started collecting Bionicles about 13 years ago, though I still don’t know much lore. My favourite Toa is Nuju, cause he’s a nerd like me. I’ve been drawing since before I can remember, and I also like to play keyboard, and computer games. Did I mention I’m an animator?"
"Sup. I’m Susannah/Lady Kaguya. 22, agenderish, that resides in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. I’m a self-taught artist that obviously loves Bionicle. Been avidly following it for at least the beginning. I love biomech style, but focus on human renditions more. I also focus on writing (e.g. Glitch in the System). Kopaka and Zaktan will always be my favourite characters."
"I’m Crunch from California’s Bay Area. People know me as Crunch, Crunchy, Crunchable, and Fluffy. I’ve worked on numerous BIONICLE fan projects and done many Bionicle-related crafts such as Pepakura, the BIONICLE Compendium, plushies, etc. etc. (it’s a lot and there will be more ;) ) "
"Heya! I’m Corvin, 24, from Germany. You may known me as Ferain or Vezok’s Friend from other Art- or Bionicle-related websites. I’m a self-taught concept artist/illustrator with a B.Sc.Game Design and also a huge Bionicle fan since day one. I feel most at home designing robots, mechs and vehicles, but I am trying to branch out more. I’m also an avid Lego builder, I enjoy writing, playing my trumpet and drums and am a bit of a globetrotter when time permits it. My favourite characters are Kopaka and Lhikan."
Yo, I’m Brave_Dragon from ‘Merica with a BFA in Animation & Visual Effects, but really I was just doing Visual Development work for games. I’m and old, grizzled ancient who have been known for my Alternicle/Metanicle Projects. Tahu’s my BBF. Also, GO CLOUD 9!
