“Any book worth banning is a book worth reading.”― Isaac Asimov
My name is Jetty and this used to be a detailed, fancy, properly programed art portfolio for a 3D artist who was desperately seeking a job in the gaming world. Now, this is a hodgepodge of my art and my fundraiser work with my nonprofit. It will be evolving as the days go by since for the first time in my life, I am doing the two things that I have always wanted to do: make art and make a difference in the world. I spent countless hours meticulously censoring my personal site to try to hide my survivor status for 16 years. Most people I have worked with only found out about my survivorship either on my Cancerversary when I make mini cheesecakes, or after my 90 Day grace period is over. I have even been ghosted by jobs when they have connected my nonprofit work with my application and by proxy my own cancer status i.e., more sick days, possibly more accessibility issues, higher insurance premiums, etc. people see dollars over other people. However, at this point, after everything that has happened to me and all the discrimination I have faced over the years, I have decided to fully embrace my own truth and make art that I enjoy making. Then, if others also enjoy it, that is fantastic, and we can both help make the world a better place together. As I type this, I am currently experiencing some pretty bad side effects to my vaccine, even 8 days later, so it is taking me much longer than anticipated to get this over and done. I am going to end up paying for 2 hosting services again because even moving over a WordPress site to a WordPress site and setting up a plug-in-based shopping app have proved too much for me. ☹ I am working on it everyday I promise. Here’s hoping a beautiful store will be open soon! Thank you for all your support over the years. I truly, truly appreciate it so very much.
