Last week, my good Australian friend Kyle Morgan (cheers Kyle!) pointed me to this absolutely wonderful video, an excerpt from the TV Show of Conan O'Brien:
If you paint miniatures, you will have probably found this video absolutely hilarious! Because, seriously, I DO IDENTIFY MYSELF WITH THAT CONVERSTATION. XD
Let's say you're dating.
Are you up front about the miniature figurines?
Do you come out with that right away?
Hilarious as this is (I love Conan O'Brien), it really is a very common thing in our lives (nerd painter's lives), and very funny if you think about it. How many of you have hidden your nerdy hobby/addiction to your dates/girlfriends/boyfriends? Are you totally upfront like Ansel or do you wait until a second or third date to confess? :D
Ansel Elgort is a very young american actor who really happens to paint miniatures, it wasn't anything prepared for the show. Actually, he paints very well! I did some digging into this, and found (some of you may know this already) that he is a Golden Demon winner! He has won no less than 3 Golden Demons in the US (that we have record of)! Check them out!
He really is a very cool guy, promising actor and miniature painter? Wonderful combination!
I hope he has time to continue painting! Keep up Ansel! :)
