I just published a new video in which I talk about the horrible, anti-autistic and ableist book To Siri With Love, written by Judith Newman. The book was published by Harper Collins and it shouldn’t have been. In the book the writer Judith Newman talks about her autistic son Gus in the most mocking way. She has absolutely no respect for her son’s privacy, and she even wants to have the power of attorney to decide for him to have a vasectomy after he turns 18, so that he will never be a father.
Happy holidays and a wonderful new year.
In this special holiday video I wish everybody happy holidays and a wonderful new year. I show you around in my neighbourhood and give advice on how to make the holidays nice for autistic people as well.

What is stimming? Why do autistic people stim? Should I make my autistic child stop stimming? These are questions I will answer in my new video Autism and Stimming.
The video is free for everybody but if you find it useful, consider to become my patron on Patreon ($1/month), to support me with this project 🙂
Autism and Stimming
Besides making photorealistic pencil drawings I also make videos in which i share my experiences as a person with classic autism. My goal of these videos is to teach people about autism from the perspective of a person on the inside. I explain how things work in an autistic mind and give advice about how a more autism-friendly situation can be created. My passion is to build a bridge in between the autistic and neurotypical worlds, and to be a voice for non-verbal people with autism.
Now I have published a video about how autism effects my art. In this video I share more about the process of making a coloured pencil drawing of my little feathered friend Pilaf, who’s also registered as my therapy/help animal.
I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
How Autism Effects My Art
I have made a time-lapse video of the whole progression of my giraffe drawing. 120 hours of work reduced into 8.5 minutes. Hope you enjoy it.
