The last few weeks I have been working on a new drawing. This time a coloured pencil drawing of my sweet little feathered friend Pilaf. I do not work with coloured pencil very often so it was quite a new challenge for me. But I also had lots of fun with it. Pilaf and I are already together for 16 years, and he’s actually registered as my help/therapy animal. He has helped me a lot with challenges I face as a person with classic autism.
Prints of my drawing are available on Fine Art America in many different kinds and sizes. Even though my drawing is very special to me, it’s my little feathered friend after all, I might also consider selling the original.
For quite a while I have been busy with a new project. I have been making videos about my life experiences as a person with classic autism, and I explain how things work in an ‘autistic mind’. And I also give advice about how a better situation could have been created for a person with autism. I’m going to make videos about many different topics related to autism. My goal of these videos is to raise awareness, and to teach people about autism from a person who’s on the ‘inside’. I want to build a bridge between the autistic and neurotypical worlds, and I also hope to be a voice for non-verbal people with autism.
I share the videos on a website called Patreon where people can experience them for as less as a dollar per month. Every now and then I will also post videos which are free for everybody to watch, like the first introduction video which I posted today.
