Jam/Derek - Male - 15
Hi there! My name is Derek, but you can call me by my alias Jam if you prefer! I'm a 15 year-old cartoonist, illustrator, and beginner animator. I've been drawing forever to be honest. Art really is my greatest passion, and it means the world to me that you're stopping by. Enjoy my work!
I started taking art more seriously when I was around 9. At that time I was into MLP:FiM, obsessively so. John Joseco, Drawponies, Bernd01, Petirep and others like them were my biggest inspirations. The Brony community was a major creative force back then for me.
Nowadays my main interest lies in the furry fandom. The community continues to inspire creativity and positivity for me, and I owe a lot to the community's kindness. I'm also pretty into Homestuck, Kirby, Pokemon, Steven Universe, animation memes, and other stuff.
Some miscellaneous facts:
I just spelled miscellaneous right on my first try.
I'm an Aquarius, and my birthday is February 8th!
My Myers-Briggs personality type is INFP.
My Hiveswap Extended Zodiac Sign is Aquasci, which means I'm Prospit and Life.
If I had to guess I'd probably be a Mage of Life.
My favorite colors are pink and blue!
It's really hard for me to pick a favorite animal, but if I had to I'd say Toco Toucan. Or Aye-Aye.
Or maybe a Coquerel's Sifaka? Maybe uhh. Cockatiels?
It's the same situation with Pokemon. Don't make me pick.
I have 15 pets! 2 dogs, 1 ferret, 9 budgies, and 3 cockatiels.
I volunteer at a dog shelter, a zoo, and I've taken an exclusive course on primate behavior at the Duke Lemur Center!
As a general disclaimer, I tend to be somewhat slow with art. If you need a product very soon, then please tell me!
