▨ I use Clip Studio Paint to draw & Affinity Photo for post-editing (because Ãďŏbe can go kick rocks.) Paint Tool Sai is a great program too & is what I started with.
▨ The outlines are scribbles by hand up until recently because I'm a mad lad. To save what's left of my sanity, I made a custom brush to repeat my scribbles. The coloring is a custom brush I made to imitate the basic oil brush from Paint Tool SAI (which works well for this style right out of the box.)
▨ Do I have an online store? Yes! Is it for fandom stuff? No. My power level isn't high enough to fight the glorious C&D ninja master race from the hidden village of Sue-You.
My store is in a deep slumber at this time. We must let it get its beauty sleep, but once it awakens, it will be for my kickass original works! If you see something fan-related at a con, grab it while you are there or if you have friends, ask them to grab stuff for you. Be sure to pay them back, though.
▨ Yes! Eventually. It's been a dream to attend events like Combo Breaker, Big House, EVO, & NYCC. Right now, I'm not at a high enough ranking to obtain the legendary powerup needed to travel outside of my region called "PLANE-TICKET." Now excuse me while I grind more experience points in 95° weather.
▨ No & no. While I'm happy my art inspires you, friendship isn't my thing. As an autistic/ADHD mastermind, my brain thrives on inner reflection, or dies due to excessive communication. My window for social interaction is basically a QTE, & afterwards, I gotta fast travel back to my cat tree to recharge my mood batteries.
My emergency stash of mood energy is reserved for conventions (strictly "business"), essential networking, & maybe a bit of maintaining my social media (if i feel like it.) Tho, if you ever see me at a convention or on Twitch, feel free to ask any questions. I'll answer almost anything within the time frames I designate for social interaction.
▨ Yes, I do! …Eventually... my brain has a jank sense of timing. It's like a cat that decides when to pounce on notifications, if ever. But don't worry, you aren't shouting into a void. Even if I don't respond, I do read all of them with a grateful smile. If you ever need to reach me for "business" stuff (i.e., commissions), email me. Emails feel less like a noisy playground like social media So You will have my full attention.
▨ Yes, I do! If you need illustration work done in oddly specific styles of my choosing, then I'm the perfect cat for the job!Start a commission ➔
▨ Branding? Sorry, but your princess is in another castle. As a lesson learned, I've shifted from convoluted business-to-business stuff into the unpressured world of creative self-expression. Branding demands skills that are practically superhuman, such as reading minds and social nuances, none of which a person like me with the flexibility of a brick wall have.
During a time when the pyramids were still young, startups & bigwigs alike took advantage of my lack of mind-reading powers & used broken promises as currency to run away with a ton of free work. Upon discovering that I am indeed [checks notes] gullible, I have a new guardian philosophy: "What you see is what you get." I only offer oddly specific types of illustrations with rigid, clear stylistic rulesets & expectations. At least you know exactly what you're getting now, right?
▨ Did I make my website? Yes! Will I make your website? No. But wait, there's good news! Webflow exists. Making a site never crossed my mind because code intimidates me to the point of hissing my pants. on the sixth day of clean up, Webflow ascended from the heavens to grant me the ethereal powers of no-code web design. Definitely check it out! It was easy to pick up, fun to learn, & has an amazing community with many resources. No, this is not a sponsoered message.Webflow ➔
▨ Ah yes, the dreaded 'B' word. Over the years, I have come to accept my art for what it truly is, aesthetic. It chooses to identify as 'aesthetic,' not 'brand.' So, the law of this land is to respect my art's identity at all times. Goals? hmmm... I don't have any for my art; I just live moment to moment & hope my actions show that creativity isn't about conforming to corporate standards. My art & I just want to explore imagination & have pressure-free fun while proving that success can be achieved by staying true to the unique you.
Now that you know everything yet nothing at all about me, Here's how you can reach me!
