My Bio

Hi there,

I'm Tato, a 2010 SCAD grad in Sequential Arts. I make a living on commission streams in the furry community, but looking to produce more of my own original content in the future. I am also a part time accordion repairist at Accordionology in Decatur, GA.


This site is for my personal artwork; original stories and characters from various projects of mine. If you know me in the furry community, please don't discuss it here on DA or tag me, I like to keep this profile separate from my commission work. Thank you for understanding!

I want to rebrand my personal art to disassociate it from my commission work. For the most part "ThirdPotato" is still my brand, but I want a different penname since the name I go by is quite permanently attached to my commissions. There would be no 'taking it back' since a lot of people in that community already know me by that name and have reblogged and tagged me under that name. I won't mince words, most of yall who have been following me for years know I do furry fetish commission work full time, but I don't want that to be associated with my personal art brand, so would it be weird if I just came up with a new pen name to go by, to associate with "ThirdPotato"? I used to go by Fyuvix, but it was a dumb name from childhood from a ripoff pokemon thing I had going. My current penname Tato is just a shortened verison of "Thirdpotato" so it's not entirely super-top-secret. But I don't have anything for folks to call me on my personal art accounts that isn't just my furry penname...

... I know I said I wouldn't store my old cringey art, but here I am... I went ahead and stored 3.4THOUSAND deviations (It was an all-day endeavor XD). It was emotionally difficult to go through essentially a scrapbook of my entire life for the last 17 years on Deviantart. DA had always been a place to share, connect with people, make some life-long friends, and grow as an artist. Going through my 4.8k deviations caused me to face my past- the good, the bad, and the ugly. Literally, the ugly XD soooo much ugly. It wasn't just out of vanity, but rather, my old art represented a version of myself I no longer identify with; outdated humor, beliefs and attitudes. With the world in the state it's in today, I didn't even want some of the old stuff to be available to the public. I drew and said a lot of things in my youth that were petty, insensitive and cringe, and I want to be able to shake that and move on. I was recently forced to delete entire galleries on FurAffinity due to their

I recently bought a commission from El--G ! They were fantastic to work with and had a fast turn-around and amazing prices! Please considering supporting them and/or checking out their gallery! They're currently open for commissions starting as low as $3. They do a variety of styles but excel at anime and manga. If you're looking for art of your ocs, I highly recommend them! If you're interested, please check out their journal here: Here's the wonderful piece they did for me of my oc, Carver, but be sure to check out their whole gallery as well!

About your time at SCAD, did you like Savannah?

I loved Savannah and the entire SCAD experience. It's such a unique and gorgeous city-- if you can call it that. It's very small compared to Atlanta where I'm at now XD

i dont know if you will remember this, but you once posted a big character profile form under the name fyuvix. i still use it, but i cant find it here on DA. i was wondering if you took it down or something

Oh wow I'm sorry for the super late reply here! Yes, it's still available here: https://www.deviantart.com/thirdpotato/art/Character-Profile-Form-36823983

Do you still do critiques?

Happy early birthday!
