I run a YouTube channel under the name "Haasio Draws" that has 14 thousand subscribers. I post art, drawing tutorials and animations, sometimes under environmental or herpetological activism. In addition to my YouTube channel, I also have a DeviantArt account, where I take character drawing or design commissions and post miscellaneous work. I occasionally host art contests on DeviantArt to spread awareness about climate change and inspire my audience to send messages though their artwork.
I am currently working with the Advocates for Snake Preservation (ASP) as a volunteer designer to help create an eco-friendly, online, print-on-demand t-shirt store to serve as a passive fundraiser. My designs reflect the themes in their "Living With Snakes" and "Stop Snake Slaughter at Rattlesnake Roundups" campaigns. You can view my designs here, and the shop here.
My preferred medium is digital, though I also create acrylic paintings. The majority of these are donated to auction fundraisers hosted by the Waquoit Bay Junior Sailing Program or the nonprofit reptile rescue, The Gecko Sanctuary.
