How long have you been on DeviantArt? I joined this site on October 1, 2010. I had been browsing the site since early 2010, finding artists whose profiles I would return to by the early spring of 2010. By summer of that year, I regularly looked into the journals and deviations of a few artists. By the fall, I completed a few works ready to upload and chose my username.
What does your username mean? I'm the fox, and with my art and writing I can document my ideas and life story. After choosing my username, I began to develop ideas for a fictional story that emerged from the union of inspiration and my imagination. I'm glad that I got to take this username.

Are you left or right handed? My right hand is dominant with the stylus or in the lab.
What is your favorite type of art to create? Complex digital animations are so fulfilling to make. I've created a few as custom gifts for people especially important to me. Two non-public animated art videos that I've produced last for minutes. Someday, I plan to create a book trailer for my story. I'm also on track to take a computer animation class at my university in the Spring 2016 semester. EDIT: I'm also going to audit a beginning animation class for the Fall 2015 term. I can't wait!
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I'd like to be able to engineer new and altered living things, which is sometimes known as bio art. I've read the book Synthetic Aesthetics which relates to this topic.
What was your first favorite? I believe it was "I want for a moment to be real" or "Im Gonna Fly" by Ronnie on her previous account (works in storage).
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Digital artworks of someone's canine fursona or original character(s) seem to be most common.
Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist? The estimable Ronnie, whose current account is tyronniesaur, is my top favorite.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I don't want to answer this question here.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Actually, several people from this site have influenced me very much and unlocked a social world where I generally feel welcome to be who I am. This has been a huge positive development for my quality of life since 2011 or so. I've felt like I ought to make tons of gift/tribute art for numerous persons who have inspired me, become friends with me, or otherwise helped me feel valued in some way.
What are your preferred tools to create art? I like using the Adobe creative software suite and my Intuos 4 Large graphics tablet.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? I work from my desk and play music on Pandora internet radio to get in the creative mood.
What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? It's hard to pick merely one moment. I feel great when I receive a thankful comment on a work that I created for a special someone else. That sort of positive feedback/outcome in a social interaction means a lot to me.

I am currently seeking interested, critical readers for the most recent prose version of the first act of the novel-to-be titled "Transpecies," in which some cognitively enhanced animals seek sanctuary in a dangerous and uncertain future America. Please contact me by note if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity.
You can find animations, writing, and more through my gallery folders. The above depiction of my fursona is courtesy of jillustrations on tumblr.
