You can find this succulent plant mama dreamin' about a million stars and creating cool 3D art. What else does Avalon have in store? Read on!
Tell us a bit about yourself! Who is Avalon?
A 20-year-old nerd who loves toooooo many things to count. I love understanding documentaries, world mysteries, animation, travel, fashion, art (the list pretty much goes on), all the way down to things such as needing to know how people live in underground cities. There’s just too much in this world to limit myself on all the things to learn about! 🌏
What are your day-to-day hobbies?
Ohhh boy, I’m your typical couch potato. You’ll find me either watching anime, BTS, playing games or sleeping 90% of the time. Majority of the time that I am going outside is to buy LOTS and LOTS of snacks, only to go home and watch more anime 📺🍰
What inspired you to get into game development?
To be honest, I never even knew game development was a choice, there was a lot of pressure to just go straight onto an art degree so I was pretty lost on what to study. Game development is never something that’s mentioned or encouraged in my world, I just happened to find it on my own. But I feel that my insane fascination/appreciation of the art and mechanics of games pushed me to pursue something I didn’t already have the knowledge and skills to do, so I just couldn’t resist the temptation to learn new things. As well as that, the idea to cross-out stereotypes and proving to people that I have the skills also motivates me a ton. But to put it simply, I just really really REALLY love playing games.
Your IG page feed is so minimal and simplistic! We love it! How long does it take to curate your own content?
Much longer than one may think! The perfectionist in me definitely comes out when it comes to editing and organizing my content, sometimes takes a whole day for one post! 3D models and art however can be a week... or more (the pain of it is worth it)
What is your fav AF hair color combo?
This is a tricky question! It probably depends on my mood but currently I’m seriously loving Arctic Fox’s Periwinkle, it’s the perfect blue to pastelize!! You could probably pair it up with any other colour and it just magically works, it's fairy dust ✨
What is your fav type of braid style?
Probably double dutch braids since I’m pretty lazy and need a way to control all that crazy bed head.
Tell us more about your plant collection!
I feel like I’ve been blessed to be able to ramble about my plant babies!! I’ve got 10 succulents and cacti that sit happily by my window sill, bathing in the new found sunlight that London has suddenly been getting. I’ve had to accept that one will forever be called ‘Big T' which stands for 'Toe'… since it was a gift from my best friend 😂
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Wherever life takes me… I’m happy with just going with the flow.
Name one thing on your bucket list!
You can barely see stars here in London so I think anywhere that I can see the entire bare night sky and sit under it for hours suits me. Seeing a million stars or the Northern Lights has always been my ultimate dream.
