my name's Butcher, a uk-based artist!

i am primarily a digital artist, working with Clip Studio Paint! occasionally, i dabble in analogue mediums such as painting (acrylic & watercolour), printmaking, beads, and good old fashioned coloured pencils. my work is predominantly portraiture & character/creature design, with the odd illustration or pixel piece. as a novice game dev, i use Unity, Tomb Engine, and 3D model in Blender.

my work focuses on lgbt characters, horror, and romance, with occult and eldritch themes. i draw from my personal experiences of being trans, gay, and neurodivergent. i am trying to push the horror angle a little more lately. i also enjoy drawing suggestive pinups and tasteful nudity, so be careful as you browse my gallery! i will come up with a better system, but for now, thumbnails for my art have colour-coded borders--green for safe, amber for suggestive/mild blood/horror, red is explicit.

this is my personal site to showcase my artwork, share my interests and inspirations, and generally have a fun time! this is a very self-indulgent project for me, as I grew up online around the millenium, and I now miss the freedom and anonymity of that era of the web. i want to step away from the pressures of social media platforms, and simply curate a quiet little space to express myself, and welcome other likeminded individuals.

so with all that being said, enjoy your stay!
