I was born on March 18th, in the small country of Luxembourg (It is between France, Germany, and Belgium), but I'm a US citizen because both of my parents are. After I finished 3rd grade, my family and I moved back to the US. Art has been a part of my family, my great-great grandfather was an artist and my father's cousin is an artist. Please friend me on facebook and follow me on Twitter as well!

Hi everyone! I have the full list of oscar nominations for this year. There are some pretty good nominees, but one movie got totally snubbed in the Animated Film category and everything is not awesome. Wink wink. Look through and you will get the idea. Anyway here is the full list of nominations!

Also, I would like to host a little contest here since I haven't really hosted a contest in a really long time. What I would do with friends and family is we would bet on the oscar categories. So I would like to host a contest with you guys where you will pick who you will think has a good chance at winning, and win a few fun prizes. If you would like to participate, here is how it works:

To enter in Ai-Don's Oscar Contest, each person must:

1. Comment to this journal if you would like to join. (Entry fee canceled) 

2 Read through the list of nominees at the bottom of these instructions, and choose carefully you have to chose in each category.

2. Send me a note, titled "your DA User name's Oscar Picks", containing all of nominees you picked who you think will win in each category, the more prominent categories will be worth more points so try to pick good ones because those can be game changers! If you change your mind on a nominee, just write to me and tell me which category and who you want to change your choice to.

3. All notes must be sent in before the show on February 22nd, so the deadline for your bets are on February 21st at midnight central time. So you have plenty of time to decide.

Once all of the winners are picked, the person with the most points, will win. The points of all of the categories will add up to 50, so that will be a perfect score if you are lucky.  Here are the prizes:

1. A free commission from your truly!
2. Pick a character that will have a guarenteed spot in the 23rd set of Dancing With the Gaming Stars.
(In case of a tie, the prizes will be divided in half, each of the two winners will have a small commission by me, and will each pick a character(one male and one female) to be in DWTGS23)

If you would like to help out and offer a prize, feel free!
