okay i mostly made this for my own reference + as a reference for future applicants since i didn’t see too many applications posted for visual arts. im currently applying to digital arts with these artworks. everything will be under the cut
in my sophomore year of college this guy made these items which quickly became a craze across campus. i myself bought one of his sweaters, which says “GOOD AND DEAD” across the chest and “ARM PAIN” along the sleeves. he showed up at 11 pm on a bicycle to deliver the goods in the dead of winter, wearing a metal t-shirt tucked into khakis. his facebook screen name is an indecipherable series of symbols. i have no authentic way to credit him but i want to share his art with you.
UPDATE! i was able to identify the artist as daniel guinness. he gave me permission to keep these images up and to include his email address firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to buy one! please support his art :)

autistics who stim by skin picking/derma, biting, dermatophagia, nail biting, hair pulling/trich, and other BFRBs are amazing and deserve respect and support, whether they continue to stim this way or try to find stim toys as a distraction.
all stimming is stigmatized, but BFRB stims are especially demonized as being unsanitary and gross.
