Note For Anyone Writing About Me

Guide to Writing About Me

I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.

I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Draw ALL The Patterns!

I'm tired. I'm plugging for Because Patterns today, it's a thing that I do and it's art stuff and it's cool and I make stuff.

I've got an Autism Acceptance album, and every day I'm adding another way that I drew an Autistic person flapping. This will go past the end of April, it goes until I'm out of ideas and then I add the old ones colored in. By then maybe I've got some more ideas!
So far, these are the pictures in it:

There will be more.
And I'm running a giveaway, too, using an Autism Acceptance design.
It's this design:

All entering requires is answering what autism acceptance means to you. There aren't a lot of entries right now, not a lot of people voting either. I'd like to see that change, please?

Oh, and I totally do stuff that isn't autism-related, too.
Like this, it's meant to be a trim at the edge of a skirt or something.
Starting to work with designs that will tessellate to cover the plane, too. Here and here are the two I've got up so far.
And I made a CafePress, a Facebook shop, and a Spoonflower, though I can't sell anything from the Spoonflower yet since I haven't proofed the fabric.


  1. Since you're drawing all these cool flapping designs, could you draw one with low to the side flaps? That's how I flap. I'd do it myself, but I can't draw.

    1. Sure- I've added a couple to the Facebook page since that might qualify, if not, let me know and I'll try to come up with one that's more what you mean.
