Hello! My name is ratwalks.

My pronouns are he/him.

When I was a kid my hobbies included basic HTML coding, photoshopping dogs into images of other dogs, catching grasshoppers, and downloading animated cursors onto school computers. Now I'm using these skills to build myself a website!

I am an artist. I mostly create digital illustrations, some animation (both in CSP EX), and linocut and wood carvings.

I use this site to express myself, and to talk about my interests. If you want to talk about them too, feel free to contact me. I like hearing about things people care about!
