This week’s chosen artist is Josaid Bracho from Venezuela. Josaid is the person behind the rewatch posters that you see floating around on Twitter. You can check out her work through her Tumblr, DeviantArt and Twitter.
Here's a little about Josaid:
1. When did you become an X-Phile?
I think it was between 1993 and 1994. I was lucky enough to have a special access to a TV signal that belonged to some company (not illegally, just lucky >.<), and as an eleven-year-old girl, I just watched a LOT of TV. I fell in love with the series since the first time I watched an episode, even being a native Spanish speaker and not able to understand anything. Nothing, not even a word of what they were saying. I started recording on VHS, and activating the closed caption I started writing down the dialogues and using a dictionary. I learned a lot thanks to The X-Files. Sometimes when my parents asked me about being able to understand what I was watching, I used to say “I was born to see this” but in Spanish XD.
2. What is the first episode you watched?
To be honest, I truly don't remember which one, sometimes my memory tricks me showing flashbacks of the Pilot XD; but I'm not sure, let’s say it's an episode from the first three seasons. I have a "funny" story about the time I had no satellite TV or cable, I thought that the 3rd season finale was THE END, I mean that X-Files only had three seasons and I started to rewatch my VHS tapes all over again, but by the end of 1998 when I came out of my hole and rediscovered the world I felt so blessed that there were more X-Files episodes and even a MOVIE! I became the happiest person in the universe.
