Hey all!! I've been lurking around this community for the past couple of weeks, picking up a couple of things here and there, trying to maintain a low profile until I decided I wanted to stay, but ultimately decided that I super love this community and I think maybe I'd like to put down roots :')
So, in short, my name's Jan! I'm an 18-year-old art student attending the Rhode Island School of Design this fall with a focus on animation and film!! I've been interested in Pokemon since I was around 4 or 5, and I used to take trips to the New York Pokemon Center every few months with my dad. Because of those trips, Pokemon has made its permanent nest inside my heart and never really left.
I stopped collecting several years ago, around the end of middle school, but recently picked it back up with a more specialized taste! I love to collect things anyway haha so this isn't all that new for me <3
I still have all of my old merch though, which I'll probably be selling/trading later along the line!! I even still have a couple of those Shiny Hasbro action figures somewhere around here I think :')
As of right now I only collect Smeargle!! Which is a kind of difficult Pokemon to choose, but that's okay, because I really like Starbucks and I'm a poor art student who only gets money to spend on Pokemon merch occasionally anyway haha
I just started collecting Smeargle officially about a week ago, but here's a shot of my current miniscule collection under the cut to hopefully not stretch the page too badly :')( Collapse )
So, that's just about it!!! I hope to make a lot of friends and memories here, and hopefully (and gradually) expand my collection!!
I'd love to have some chill chats with y'all if you wanna talk below, and if you see any obscure Smeargle merch around, I'd super enjoy a tip-off!! <333
