Is it #introduction time again? Sorta seems to be. I'd boost the old one but it's a little out of date.
Hi, I'm Peggy, and I run dragon.style. If "maintaining a Patreon to pay the hosting, putting off updating it for a year, and occasionally opening the place up for new users" qualifies as "running" it.
I am a trans lady who spends most of her time drawing complicated sci-fi comics and sort of earning a living doing that via Patreon.
Adobe Illustrator has been my main medium since 2000, it's a pretty unusual choice but it works for me.
I used to do burlesque, then pole dance, as a hobby and a way to stay fit. I miss it and should find something similar again.
You may know me from elsewhere as Egypt Urnash.
I'm a big teddy bear of a guy, and also as a dragon honestly. I spend most of my time working (I'm a sysadmin) or hanging out with my partners playing video games (MMOs mostly).
I have no idea how to use Mastodon, and I don't actually use social media much, but I like the concept of the platform so I'm trying it. (Twitter @inane_tweet is probably what I actually use the most often, though I've used most of them to the point of familiarity)
I've been posting on the internet for nearly 30 years, and my very first post was on alt.fan.dragon as a dumb kid. (I tried to roleplay, but I didn't know what a furry was or how to roleplay. I ended up describing myself as a 30 foot tall dragon, and (posting horribly out of sequence) I stomped through the town not even realizing why everyone else's reactions were so startled. I think my last post was in the town library, where the kindly librarian bent character a bit by explaining exactly why my posting was met with confusion.
Nice to meet you! I'll try not to get banned.
@anthracite Oh hey, you're on this site too, cool! Happy to see you!

I even run a corner of it! I may be insane.
@anthracite I saw, cool stuff! No more than most of us probably. XD
