I am SapphyDe90, born in 1990, from Portugal.
Profissionally, I am a graphic designer and I currently have a full time job as one. Illustrating one thing or another, though not my main trait that I would describe myself, I like to draw all sorts of characters and comics. One of my many goals is to create my own works of fiction.
The art style that I’ve adopted is inspired by the cartoons that I used to watch when I was young. That is, Cartoon Network. I draw everything with a mouse, in vectors.
There are quite a few things that I enjoy. Of course, as I told, I am kinda of a geek! Mainly, I’ve grown up with video games as my main source of entertainment. Though I also entertain myself with more mundane things such as watching youtube videos, following my own subscriptions on twitter, talking with my friends online and so on. Besides drawing, of course! Oh and Roleplaying.
But I am someone who considers herself mostly balanced and, as such, I also enjoy other things outside of the “online realm”. I enjoy shopping, spending time with my friends in a cafe or whatever they wish to drag me to as long they keep it in small groups. In short, I enjoy good company. Often dwelling into psychology, emotionally mature. The way the human mind works and the things one can learn when paying attention to what another says and what is not being said but is shown.. intrigues me. That’s where my intelligence lies instead of the mainstream idea that intelligence is based on how many useless and empty convoluted words one can spew. So, most of all, I enjoy authenticity given how easy it is for me to, most of the time, notice when someone isn’t.
I also like to keep myself updated with what’s happening in the world and gain knowledge on the nuance that slips everyone’s attention. As such, it’s normal that some of the opinions I may have can be considered “controversial”. But I value truth above what’s politically correct, though I may omit my opinions usually out of politeness and kindness for I am a believer that some people can only function if they are kept under their own illusions. Some people can’t handle certain truths for several reasons and that is something that I usually take into consideration. Some people have to find the truth by themselves as well. Of course, I’m sharing this as a way to express that I’m someone who can enjoy a good debate if given the right circumstances!
As far as my background goes, and to keep it brief and short, I always lived in Portugal. My life experience has led me to be an agnostic atheist, against the environment and people that I’ve grown up with that are part of a very specific christian religion. Or, as wikipedia describes, it’s “[..]a millenarian restorationist Christian denomination with nontrinitarian beliefs distinct from mainstream Christianity[..]“. Such change has given me the label of someone “who has been disfellowshipped”.
On a rather unrelated note, I’m also a trans woman, though, to be honest, that’s not really important or relevant. But it may give you an perspective and also a why I might decide to talk about such topics as well. But worry not, it’s not something I’ll bring often.
