So! After some reflection and lots of questions on why I have a “monster” for my user icon I decided to create a new oc to represent my artwork 

The TsaoShin character has been my brand identity for about 10 years now and though its had a long history with me, I feel like it no longer represents the style or subject matter of my artwork (not that I don’t or wont draw things like that anymore).

I created this new character based directly on my cat Grendel.  He was an easy choice since he is my muse and is always beside me while I work.

I’ll slowly be changing my user icons, banners, and branding across my networks over the next week.  Not really big news but lots of work for me -_-;
