My Bio

ABOUT ME: Christian, INTJ - I am a US illustrator and animal artist. I work both traditionally and digitally. Diagnosed with autism in my late teens, I learned to see emotional expression and communication in a unique way from a very young age, especially in animals. Animals communicate clearly and effectively; they simply communicate differently from humans, similar to how autistic people like me communicate differently from the rest of humanity. All creatures communicate, and typical human communication is only one form. Because I had to learn to understand human communication and expression by trial and error rather than by instinct, I was able to extend that same logic toward understanding animals. I strive to help others see the expression and communication I see in animals. Clients include Bible Visuals International, the American Quarter Horse Museum and Hall of Fame, and Michelin North America.



ADOPTABLES / COMMISSIONS I make creature adoptables that anyone is free to purchase, and I take commissions for art of all kinds. I currently accept real currency/PayPal (prices: www.deviantart.com/monocerosar…). Because I'm usually working on several different projects at once, please don't expect your request to be finished overnight. If you have a deadline you need it for, please let me know ahead of time. Thanks!

Oh yes, Hitler knew what he was doing. Most people were Christians at the time in Germany, so he knew of he could get them on his side, then he would have Germany on his side. It’s the same thing happening today with the divide over COVID: if you can convince the general public that a certain group of people is dangerous, they will have no issue allowing those people to be rounded up and removed from society. Of course, when bringing up how much of Christian Germany sided with Hitler, it’s important to remember that there were thousands of German Christians who did NOT side with Hitler and were subsequently murdered and silenced and therefore didn’t make history, and also the US, Britain, etc., were almost entirely Christian, and they opposed and defeated Hitler. So it wasn’t that “Christians were Naz*s,” it was that Hitler utilized a lot of foolish Christians in his country, but even then he didn’t get all of them. Concentration camps were filled with Catholics and Christians who opposed him right alongside Jews.

Hitler Was Not a Biblical Christian
Sock Kitty
  • Which art tools did you use to create your cat? Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet

  • What do you love most about cats? They're one of the world's most efficient predators, but they weigh 8 pounds and are cute and fluffy

  • Would you be interested in fundraisers for other animals? Of course! Awareness of shelter animals and encouraging people to adopt rather than buy dogs, cats, and rabbits would be a good idea.

I have heard of that, yes. It's scary that people would intentionally do that and have no qualms about it.

Wanting to do something because you enjoy it and it doesn't harm your life is very different from doing something because you feel you need to do it, even if it harms you. I believe I mentioned TV in the description as an example of this. People watch TV all the time, but it only becomes an issue when you start damaging your life to get back to watching it, or if you feel anxious/upset when you can't get the think you enjoy.


Do you have an issue with self-control or something? Do you have a hypersexualized life and this offends you? You seem very vehement against this stamp, going all through ancient comments with people who aren't even on DA anymore.
