Hello random traveler.

If you had the misfortune of stumbling onto my deviantart account, let me introduce myself.

My name is Bryan Semino, but I prefer to be called Nathan. I am in my 20’s, Italian-American, and I am currently working on a franchise called XELANESQUE.

About me, well, I am a college student going to school in Sacramento, California. I am currently majoring in Cultural Anthropology with a minor in East Asian Studies. I currently work as a kitchen assistant. Washing the dishes, sweeping the floors, etc. in a Family Run Deli in East Sacramento.

Besides school, I consider myself an active person. I am a member of the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Nature Conservancy, the NAACP, the Sierra Club, the Japanese American Citizen's League, APAPA, Friends of the Library, ASAN, the Sacramento Italian Cultural Society, HRC and WWF. I also go to gym as much as I can.

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved drawing, I always wanted to make my own stories, like CLAMP, or Tite Kubo. I have been a Trekkie since I was 4 and an Otaku since I was 10.

I joined deviantART years ago, during an extremely dark period in my life. XELANESQUE was an idea I had since I was in elementary school, it was heavily influenced through Star Trek and Star Wars, which I have watched since the age of 4, more so than Sesame Street. My franchise was also heavily influenced with many anime I watched on the Toonami line up on Cartoon Network as a child. Watching all these shows inspired me to create my own universe. But I was forced by my family to grow up and forget about the stupid world in my head and go to UC Berekley.

After almost a decade of inactivity, I started redesigning XELANESQUE, I got it copyrighted in 2009 and began working on it again around the same time I joined deviantART. XELANESQUE now has many worlds and characters and different alien species. Though, the reason you don’t see them on my account now is because I was recently on hiatus, trying to practice realism. Now, I have a bunch of pictures and I am too busy to color them. But whenever I try, I try to color them as much as I can whenever I have the time.

In regards to requests, art trades or commissions. I have this little problem of almost never finishing them. The thing is, I like to draw for fun, but when people put pressure on me, I start seeing my job of doing requests and art trades as a chore and I usually never finish them. So, if you do want to art trade, commission or request a drawing from me, be prepared to wait a long time.
Interests
Hello, anyone who is still watching me. Though I doubt anyone still is...

My classes have started with full force. I am still taking the Pharmacy Tech Class. But I have also started taking others. My English Writing Professor is the Poet Laurete of my hometown. I am also taking 2 Anthropology Classes, one of which I am very worried about, it is lab class. The other is cultural anthropology which I am sure will be easy. And lastly the Japanese class, with the same awful professor. He was not happy to see me. He told me that no disabled student has ever passed his class with an 80% and none ever will. But I was the first, he wasn't pleased with that. But, he can't do anything because he knows that it will obviously be discrimination, I can take him to court for that.

I also have 2 new jobs. I quit working at that stupid Sandwich Shop and got a job with my local library and an office downtown which helps people with disabilities. They said they only needed someone for 1 year. So far no problems yet.

Also, with my new paycheck I will be able to purchase a new copy of Adobe Photoshop which I need. Which means I can submit artwork again! I hope...

I will let you know how things go. I need to be more active on this website again.
