I have several of my social media linked below in the About Me tab, but you can also go to my linktree - https://linktr.ee/zetsuai89 - to find more links. For my art, I mainly post on my art insta - https://www.instagram.com/zetsucreates/ - and my art blog - https://zetsucreates.tumblr.com/ - so please follow me there to see my process! :D
