Pronouns: They/them and He/him

Janell Ja’rae Thiessen, also known as Phoninskis/Phoney online, is a non-binary artist. They focus on Visual Development, Character Design, and Illustration; but they’re also heavily interested in Graphic Design, Story-Boarding, Animation, and Story-telling. You can view their work on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram!

They’re also interested in developing fictional worlds and oddball characters, looking for ways to integrate life-experiences and hardships that make characters realistic, relatable, diverse, and three-dimensional. They have a soft-spot for turning character tropes inside out, old-school video games, the ‘70s/’80s, monsters, and funky music.
