Hi Maia! I was rereading Gender Queer and I only just realized you have a DeviantArt! (from the artist meme page, lol.)

I'm super excited to find more of your art here, and I also wanted to say that your book is amazing and I really appreciate how open you were with sharing your struggles with gender identity and your journey with discovering your identity. I was born and identify as female, but I hated being a girl and having expectations of being "girly," so I could relate to some of the same views about female expectations. And on the rare occasion I use humanoids in artwork that expresses my emotions, I prefer to use gender ambiguous forms:

Anyway, I'm really excited to find your dA page and seeing more of your art! :D
