Also, here's another drawing that Bea commissioned me to do for a book published through Lulu a while back, though it and the other illustrations I did were left out of said book for the simple reason that nobody involved, including myself, knew how to insert images into the text. The drawing was intended to go along with Bea's story "The Sissification of Martin."
In case you're wondering why I signed the older drawing with my actual initials while the newer pic is signed "rX," that is in reference to the deviantART account I set up specifically for art of this nature, which is registered under the user name rocketXpert. I also have a much older deviantART account as rocketdave - that account was intended to be a general-purpose depository for any artwork I happened to do. However, as soon as I posted my first feminization drawing, that type of thing became pretty much all anyone wanted to see. I can't say I was surprised- it's been my observation that art that appeals to people's prurient interests is what garners the most attention. While I initially appreciated my burgeoning popularity, I'm afraid I also felt an increasing resentment of how my online identity had become subverted. Consequently, to put some distance between myself and the more fetishistic artwork, I registered for the second deviantART account last year.
Had I known I was destined to become so closely associated with crossdressing art and the like, I might have worked harder to carve out a separate identity for myself from the get-go. Of course, some of that decision was taken out of my hands, such as when Bea started posting my work and crediting me by my full name... without consulting me on what I preferred, I might add. Perhaps when Bea tried out a girl's name on me during our earliest correspondence, I shouldn't have objected. While I wasn't bothered by it, in my experience, being called by a name other than my own is kind of a strange feeling and can get wearisome after a while, so I expressed some reservations about essentially pretending to be someone I'm not. Bea's response: "What a fuss about a bloody name!"
As if two different user names on deviantART were't enough, further confusing matters, I use the nom de plume Debbie when I illustrate books for Sandy Thomas Advertising. Talk about diluting your brand. I guess whatever people want to call me is fine... just so long as none of my family members discover what sort of art I'm best known for.
Lastly, rounding out this rambling introduction, here are a couple caricatures of yours truly:
