Anonymous asked: Thanks for making that picture about stimming and happiness

You are welcome,  anon! I really made that picture for me as much as for the people who have reblogged it and who relate to it. I’m glad you like it :)

I took a little break from freelance work for a self-indulgent re-redraw of one of my very first all-digital pieces from 2005, which I already revisited for an improvement meme in 2009! now I want some lime sherbet.

There is hope for me yet *starry eyes*

My inking practice dissolved into doodling mermaids (story of my life) and these two came out! I figure that d/Deaf beluga mermaid and autistic dolphin mermaid probably have a lot of things in common.
Beluga mermaid makes her own beads for beaded belts and necklaces and things, and dolphin mermaid likes anything small and round and pearl-like. I bet beluga would love having someone to gift her creations, and dolphin would be eager to learn sign language and would enjoy not having to talk with their mouthparts. And they both love to move their bodies (water ballet and spinning-stimming, respectably).
Yes, they are definitely friends. I should probably name them!

this is so wonderful.

You are so wonderful (✿◠‿◠)

Autistic mermaid loves stimming with pearls! Running them between their fingers, wrapping them around their arms, feeling the smoothness against their face and inside their mouth— all the good stimming!
They know how to find the best oysters with the prettiest and most interesting pearls and they are always adding to their collection!

I thought my followers on this blog might like to see this too :)

*sobs* no one makes art of us except as inspirational-children figures. We don’t show up as fantasy characters. You don’t know how amazing this is.

Aww. I’m really glad you like it!
This kind of reaction, and my own experiences growing up as an autistic kid looking for characters like me in fantasy (and never quite finding what I was hoping for) is the reason I make sure to carve out places for us in fantasy settings. More than that— I make us heroes.
We are just as worthy of adventure and wonder as anyone else, and we deserve to see our stories! More autistic protagonists in fantasy 2k14!

I bought a pack of gel pens for school, but they’re actually pretty good for doodling too

Gel pens give me life. These are lovely!
