Greetings! I'm Annie D, a fangirl that's been into animation and animated movies for as far back as I can remember.
In real life I live and work on a tiny stretch of land in South East Asia called the Peninsular Malaysia, though I have spent some years of my life living in Sydney, Australia and London, England. Malaysia is my hometown, and there's no place like home.
I started this site in 2011 when I was still a student; a friend of mine had just started her own website and taught me some very basic HTML. After a few months of teaching myself the ropes, this website was born. My attention span waxes and wanes so there have been long stretches where I haven't updated anything, but I've always just talked myself out of abandoning this place, it does have a near and dear place to my heart.
Online, I'm just another fangirl with the attention span of a mayfly and a penchant for shiny new things. At the same time, I have a fond memory of old-school cartoon shows and movies, most of which when viewed by today's standards might look dodgy but what the hey. My love for the animation medium has not dwindled over the years; in fact, gaining access to the internet, ebay and a credit card has only fuelled this fangirlism. Hey, everyone needs a hobby.
In case you were curious, I named this site Clear Black Lines because in the animated world, all solid objects are bordered by clear black lines. I also have a livejournal for other animation-related miscellanies that just couldn't fit into this site. It's at the creatively-named (*snerk*) clearblacklines.livejournal.com though I really haven't updated in a while. Um.
