Howdy, whoever’s reading this! My name’s Alex, I sometimes go by Fairything, and this is my blog.

I’m a writer, musician, and student. I’m gay and neurodivergent, I’m active in my local arts scene, and like everyone else in this strange, somewhat troubling world, I’m just trying to be a better person.

If you want a look at my portfolio and resume and such, you can access that here, on my more professional website. I also have an Instagram for art! Feel free to contact me on either of these platforms.

This blog’s format is simple: every week, I’ll post a TIP, TRIAL, AND RECOMMENDATION post. That’s pretty much what it sounds like: a tip about making art, something I tried, and, as a fun little bonus, some kind of book or film or show that I’ve been really into.

In short, it’s for people who like art and making art. Because I’m someone who likes art and likes making art, and I want to share what I’ve been lucky enough to learn.

There’ll also be plenty of inward posts about the process that is running a blog, because it’s a process. Trust me.

So, yeah. That’s what this is. If you’ve read this whole page, we’re friends now. As compensation, here’s a picture of cultural icon Roger Rabbit, from the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I just think he’s neat.
