Hello everybody and a especial Hi to the Slothicornians out there,
I'm @creativista, a graphic designer, aspiring letterer, experimental jeweller and illustrator.
For those of you who haven't read my intro post, you must know that I joined Steemit to pursue a long-life dream of building two skills: lettering and digital illustration. This platform has given me the chance to display unabashedly my progress in these two areas only to find an incredibly supportive community. Thank you btw!
On that note, I'm really grateful to Steem-based platforms because they have allowed me to meet kindred spirits, loyal fans and a great community of followers that I'm more than happy to serve, follow and learn from.
My journey as a creator
I love making stuff and anything visual or artistic. As a child, I used to make cakes and sweets without recipes. I built a shed in the backyard of my mom's house that went through at least half a dozen iterations. Before that, I also wanted to be a ballet dancer and a pianist. Let's say I've experimented with a lot of arts and crafts and I know for sure that I'm a maker at heart.
As a teen, I did embroidered cross-stitching and tried modern dancing. I wanted to become a ceramist in my late twenties. Most of these skills became unnoticed because I never documented them or stuck with them long enough, for others I do have a few pics:
- At one point I perfected the art of hand-bound notebooks
- I enjoyed papercraft and incorporated it into my designs:
- I even developed a laser-cut jewellery line in these past few years
- I finally found the guts to publish my first lettering projects publicly to hold myself accountable

- I've also made some progress in digital illustration, especially with my latest entry for @sndbox:
Why I want to join the Slothicorn community?
I've dedicated my life to a design education since my 20's, but my life has been intertwined with art, crafts and making since forever.
I would be thrilled to use my creative skills to promote cryptocurrencies in unique ways and contribute to this community filled with talented artists.
I can add a lot of value to the community because I have many skills that can be mixed and matched to create new takes on the subject.
Truth is, I'm a devoted creator and a life-long learning artist.
Thanks for reading and sticking around. This last week I've had huge problems with severe blackouts and very scarce Internet service in my state, but I'm committed to getting back on track with weekly, and ideally daily posts. Stay tuned for more.
Have a great night, day or afternoon!
PS: If I need to add process to other works I'm more than happy to do so, just let me know.
