Most of what you'll find on this page is traditional/digital art (mostly traditional), literature (that nobody ever reads
), and photography. I don't do fanart anymore (unless it's football-related ⚽), so if you came to this page expecting to find new fanart, you'll be disappointed.
My two most used aliases online are The Inimitable Enigma Cypher (or just E. Cypher) and The Infamous Black Valkyrie (on FictionPress). You see anyone online with either of those names (in either those forms or any permutation of them), or work from dA on any other sites, chances are it's me.

I live in America. I do not
consider myself American. I am of German descent and consider myself an unofficial German citizen. Someday I'm going to move to Germany and make that "unofficial" status "official".
I am fascinated with the history
of the Third Reich; HOWEVER, I DO NOT, HAVE NEVER, NOR WILL I EVER, SUPPORT ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH NAZIS,
or any permutation of them. Anyone who thinks that German automatically equals Nazi can feel free to leave my page now
or keep that to yourself. Because I will not
I don't read yaoi. I don't write yaoi. I do not draw yaoi. I do not mind
if you do, but I just don't want to see it, only because, where my favorite characters are concerned, I prefer them the way they were created.
I support communism. I find capitalism to be out-of-date and very oppressive to anyone who wasn't born into some rich family. If you don't like this, that's your opinion, but I do not have to explain myself to anyone
about why I feel this. Chances are you're a raging capitalist anyways if you're offended enough to leave a nasty reply on my page.
I can sometimes be very straightforward with my opinion on things. This is not to be mistaken for rudeness or arrogance; it's just the way I've always been.
I know my drawing style is not the greatest. I am perfectly aware of this and am always working to improve. Over the last few years I've made leaps and bounds from my old work, so I know I'm making progress.
I write what I want to write. Don't like the way I write things, or what I write? Don't read.
And that wraps up this section.
