Art of Femulation

Throughout my life, drawing and sketching has been an outlet for me being transgender.

When I was a kid, I began drawing as soon as I discovered the business end of a pencil.

In my early teens, when I became fascinated with femulation, my drawing started serving a purpose. When I could not crossdress (which was most of the time), I drew pictures about crossdressing as a release for my frustrated femulations.

Over the years, I have used ballpoint pens, fountain pens, rollerball pens, crayons, colored pencils, and markers for my trans-drawings, but a simple pencil and eraser were my usual tools until I bought a Macintosh computer in 1985.

Now my computer is my primary drawing tool, although I still use a pencil occasionally (see above right) to keep my penciling skills toned.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you cannot help seeing my trans-artwork on display here. I don't know if you readers prefer reading what I write or seeing what I drew.

For me, drawing is fun, while writing is hard work. As a result, I have a big backlog of trans-art, but almost no backlog of trans-words. The daily content of this blog reflects that.

Now go put on a dress!


  1. u gotta post some of that. My early stuff I drew when I was teen all got thrown out (see my blog, wrote about this about 3 weeks ago). I'd give anything to see some of the drawings I did.

  2. I'm with TG Stana. Perfect cure for writers block and a real treat for your fans here.

    I did go and put on a dress, so in return I am expecting some more of your lovely sketches.

    Cheers - Petra

  3. I love your words and I love your
    pictures, you are one of my two

    Lots of Hugs

  4. TG & Petra --- Sadly, most of my early stuff is long gone, too.

  5. Karen --- Thank you for the very kind words. I have to ask, who is your other heroine?

  6. She is a lady who is going thru
    her final weeks of transition and
    will be having SRS this month.
    (I'd mention her name, but not sure if she would appreciate me doing so)
    I am so proud of both her and you
    for all of the things you both do
    to advance "our" cause.
    I am 68 years old and have never had the courage that you both have. Please believe me, I pray to god every day that SHE will keep you both VERY, VERY safe.
    Lots and lots of hugs
    Karen Marie

  7. Karen --- Thank you again for the very kind words!
