For several years now I've run Fenix Fire Designs doing crafts and digital arts, and also have attempted at writing a novel series.  I may function as a human being, but I do have ADHD, Asperger's and several forms of anxiety.  So videotaping or Audibly talking about things is extremely awkward and difficult.  I'm talkative, but i stumble on important topics despite having a huge passion for things.  I'm running a patreon, and heavily awkwardly asking people to support me because my huge project hopefully is to create a Graphic Novel series around LGBTQ themes and of course set in the world that my novel series is in.  Also i'd love to start vlogging, it's a trend i know - but it's my way of hoping to get over some of my fears and anxiety with public speaking.

I recently inched out of the closet as Transgender, (And addicted to Chase Ross videos so excuse me if in my audio i say 'Baby Tran' cause i'm not meaning to offend.. i just watch FTM videos too much on youtube.) - and my family apart from my birth father have been extremely open and welcoming.  So yea, PRE T.  In my 30s.  So this is my journey, my story is embedded in my graphic novel project. 

I live in New Zealand, and am originally from Minnesota -  I have a background in digital arts specifically in illustration and graphic design.  I'm on a 3 year quest to get my bachelors in Communication Design from Otago Polytechnic.  I adhere to the standard of "My stuff is crap, but i upload it anyways" - so if i'm behind on making content that may help push the standard of my project, i'll throw in vlogs or content from my classes i'm taking.

I still sleep with stuffed toys, but like twice a week - sometimes out of habit!  I play Second Life, I adore Marvel Comics and I can't think of anything else to say.

I'll release the hounds.  The kraken.
No actually, i'll probably just do a random draw for a character quick sketch.
