Rezzed in 2006 not long after the grid was open to unverified account, Nimil has been a grid curiosity for almost 4 years now. Known for being a mouthy rat girl she has had her share of friends and enemies all over the grid. She started out as a dancer at a non-nude club called "The Minx Den" owned by the sadly deceased Minx Naumova and soon found her way into dj'ing. from January 07 to March 07 Nimil was a part of Phreak Radio and had a weekly show on Fridays after Arahan Claveau. It was Claveau who got her interested in art in Second Life.
In January 07, Nimil ran across a very cool sim called Gypsy Moon, and sitting in a crater she met Lucas Gerard. What followed was a relationship that holds strong even today. From their relationship, Nimil and Lucas started a store together called LuNi.
In November of 2011, Nimil finally ended her relationship with Lucas, she continues to create in the world of second life, under a new store name ~SongBird~.
~SongBird~ is Nimil's attempt to continue to create in Second Life without the collaboration of her ex-partner Lucas Gerard. Currently the store features several items created entirely by her that once bore the name [ LuNi ]. Slowly (because real life has taken a front seat finally) she is working on new items.
Not An Artist
Nimil Blackflag is not well known for her artistic endeavors and has in fact made a point to not call herself an artist. She feels personally that what she is doing is nothing more than screenshot manipulation. others however have felt differently and have asked for her pieces to be shown in galleries and she even had one picture in a magazine.
a list of magazines/shows/galleries that have included her artwork, and the artwork shown:
