PeachyMars, Illustrator

Pronouns: They/them/theirs

PeachyMars is a graphic artist. You can find their work on their portfolio page here. They describe themselves as a non-binary full-time illustrator of Puerto Rican descent, and they are looking to connect with other trans artists. To contact them, you can email them at peachymars.art@gmail.com.

To describe my work, I feel that my art style is a combination of both western cartoons and anime. I enjoy drawing monsters and fictional creatures, including those that are anthropomorphic/furry. My characters and art are body positive and LGBT friendly, and a number of my characters are trans, LGB, or a combination. I focus on making my stories wholesome and happy, as I feel that many LGBT characters in media don’t get enough happy endings or positive representation. I want to change that for the better and show the world that LGBT folks are just like everyone else, with our own stories and experiences, all deserving of love and appreciation. This also applies in my body positivity.

My art is very important to me and I put my heart and soul into what I do. My main character is nonbinary and often changes their presentation, reflecting my own experience with being nonbinary and genderfluid. I enjoy portraying monsters & aliens most often in my work because I feel like they exist outside the human experience and limitations that society often expects of us, such as gender roles and the gender binary. It is an extremely fun dynamic and set of ideas to explore for me, and has also helped me cope with my identity and love it.
