It's been almost a year since I took the original rules down for requests and art trades down. This year started off doing requests on dA and thought about putting up updated rules for requests and art trades.

Some time ago, I forbade certain things like swearing. Now, I'm far more relaxed and tolerant on those stances after deprogramming from the fundie right.

Here are the updated rules:

1. OCs (original characters) are only allowed (still not allowing copyrighted movie, TV, comic book, video game characters, and logos).
2. Have them do, dress, and say whatever they want, as long as it's safe for work (SFW).
3. Request that my own OCs from any of the three series (Tales From A Working Band, Syd's World, and European Music Wars) do whatever you want them to do, dress, and say.
4. Art trades are still ongoing.

Those are the updated rules for now.

I'm a high-functioning autistic indie cartoonist/illustrator currently pursuing a career in graphic art. I'm also the creator of three currently running cartoons Tales Of A Working Garage Band, Syd's World, and European Music Wars. My style of drawing is mostly inspired/influenced by Robot Jones, Schoolhouse Rock, but the way I design my characters are mostly influenced by fashions of the 1960's with a sprinkle of 70's, 80's, and 90's fashion.

Constructive criticism is welcomed for those who look at my work.

Feel free to make fan art of my OCs, but ask me first.

Art trades and requests are always open! :D

R.I.P. June Foray (1917-2017). She was the voice of Rocky and Natasha of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Also, she was the last surviving cast member of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

That show played a major part of my childhood as I watched it in reruns on Nickelodeon in the 1990's, Cartoon Network around 2000, and most recently on channel 23 back in/around 2012.

She will be missed.

Same thing (didn't know about famous logos until now). The reason I don't do fanart of famous characters and famous logos around the globe is that they are copyrighted. I don't wanna risk crippling lawsuits if I did them without their permission. I am totally cool with people doing fanart, but I chose not to jump on the bandwagon.

ohhhhhh, why don't you allow canon characters? Most, I say MOST PEOPLE, accept that. Makes me feel like your the polar opposite of :iconnikkilove025:.
You mainly use OCs
She mainly uses canon characters. But sorry if I was being harsh or something. I just kinda felt like it.
