My name is Destiny Slater.
I love creating illustration, graphic novels, & character design, something that get me into my world to share with you. On the hobby side, I play with 3D sculpting, 2D animation & storyboarding for fun.
It is the highest priority that my work has empowering, independent, and strong main Deaf protagonists that fit in my philosophy of how a Deaf character is better written. Frustrated by the lack of childhood with the positive reinforcement in the Deaf character representation of someone like me, I've decided I'm taking this matter into my hands to turn my childhood's desire into a reality.
Nowadays, I juggle between my side gigs work, building comic portfolios, taking care of my geckos, and trying many new foods.
