Jim North

From DariaWiki

Roland Lowery, better known online as Jim North, is a Daria fan artist and fan fiction author who was born and raised in the US state of Mississippi. Right around his thirteenth birthday, his family moved to correct this horribly unfortunate happenstance and relocated to Arkansas. He currently lives in Branson, Missouri.

Jim creates fan works for various shows, games, and comics. He has also put out a few original pieces and plans to continue doing so.

He became a fan of Daria after watching Esteemsters the night it premiered. Sadly, he only got to watch the next two episodes before losing access to satellite TV. In early 2008, however, he managed to find and watch the entire series on YouTube, rekindling his fandom and further cementing his adoration of the show.

Speaking of things he adores, how about thatLONERchick, eh? He digs her. You might even say they're boyfriend/girlfriend. How cool is that?
