Hey there! I'm Somnius, a white tiger living in SF. I code websites, play indie & rhythm games, love all kinds of music, and turned vegan in the middle of this year.
Things I advocate for: furries, non-monogamy, sex positivity, gender identity, LGBT+ rights, democratic socialism.
All of you here inspire me so much with the amazing things you create. I have so much to learn!
Furries, art, commissioning
When you detach our own identity from your physical form and start thinking beyond the limits of the physically possible, you can picture yourself however you want.
Maybe your fursona is someone exactly like you, but is also partly your favorite animal. Maybe they're the best parts of you put together. Maybe they're someone extremely different from you—all of this becomes a playground for imagining yourself in different ways, and that can be pretty powerful!
Furries, art, commissioning
I just sent off a commission request that I've been sitting on for a while, and it's got me thinking about how furries are connected with art and artists.
We have a pretty unique connection with art of our characters, whether you're the one commissioning the artwork or whether you're the artist. Commissioning artwork is relatively common among furries, but not so much outside of that group, in my experience.

Looks like I gotta get more consistent about removing old remote assets to not drive up S3 costs, I'll be doing that shortly.
But, thanks again for the amazing help, y'all! Continue on being your lovely selves :D
