New pinned post.
Hi, I draw animals, landscapes and random things. I mainly use open source software.
I am an Italian thirty-something; I have a dog and I'm the caretaker of a chipmunk.
Commission open, if you want a drawing of your pet or an avatar:
I’m excited to make a big announcement!
I am launching a Patreon, where you can support my work and see more of it. The official launch will be January 23, one week from today!
If you like what I do and want to support me so I can keep creating, and if you want exclusive access to my art and process, you’ll want to check this out!
The Patreon page will also be a community for learning and inspiration through a private Discord Server. Anyone will be able to ask me about my process there.
"We tend to define racism in a way that will not implicate our own views or ideas. “I think people define racism in a way that exonerates them. If they can narrow [the definition of racism] as much as possible to things they are not saying or doing or are about, that leaves them off the hook,”
Hey everyone, my wife and I are starting a new side project shooting reference photos for creators. You can check them out at https://reference.pictures
There's tons of free stuff as well as our first paid pack. All proceeds will go back into funding more cool shoots like this one.
Thanks for being awesome. <3

Speaking of DIY skills and such, I think soap and bread are two of the top "it's easier* than it sounds" things you can make and enjoy a direct, material benefit from.
For example, I used to think you needed a bread machine to make bread. Then I realized, "That can't be right. People have made bread for thousands of years."
I think the process of making things like that has become kind of obscured from us in modern life. But you really can just go out and Make A Thing.
Also, if anyone's interested in digging into some real #DIY stuff, look for a copy of, "Back to Basics: How to Learn and Enjoy Traditional American Skills."
The book covers things like:
building a home, solar & wind power, raising livestock & gardening, preserving food, metalwork, drying flowers, dyes, quilting, scrimshaw
Some of the advice in the book (like growing seasons) is specific to the continental US, but I think there's plenty that folks in other regions could get out of it, too.
