Hi friends! My name’s Nate K. Ammankoski-Smith, & I’m a disabled, queer, trans artist who exists in Naarm (“Melbourne”), Aus-failure. I love coffee, 20th century history, & never shutting up. :^]

I use Procreate on my iPad to make digital art, & gouache, inks, & watercolour on paper, & oils on canvas for traditional.

I have an e-graphic novel called What Colour Is Blue?, which I started developing in 2007. My website is & has links to things.

Lmao, so like a day after I use a Picrew & complain about how difficult it is to find ones with a fat option, I find one that has a fat option.

There's not enough art on my page so here is an older (September 15, last year) little piece I wanted to share :o

Given the explosion in production in this kind of electronics this past decade, it might be interesting to target this kind of system :) Also includes old android tablets and phones!

it feels like my mind wasn't ready for this crazy pose xD

I tried to "blur" certain parts of the drawing like the front paw, tail and ground. I definitely learned a lot with this one. but I will continue to grasp how to get movement into drawings.

I need to break free of my abusive dad's hold on my finances. I had to borrow "AU"$350 the other day, & still owe him "AU"$310. I'm also on disability payments, & will be getting less from now on because I'm no longer studying.

The pictures I've included is what I need to launch my own art shop, plus my negative PayPal balance. I need "AU"$125, which includes PayPal fees; CashApp/Venmo aren't available down here...

#begpost update "AU"$0/"AU"$125 :boost_ok: 

Just updated my Liberapay profile, so you can donate using that, too, if you don't have PayPal. If yr not able to donate, that's perfectly fine - just boosting helps as well!
