About

My name is Skullstho (Skulls Tho) and I'm a full time creative.

I've worked in illustration, streaming, graphic design, video editing, writing, and cosplay. Vaguely, I can be called a content creator.

I'm a transmasculine, nonbinary person.
My pronouns are He/They. I'm also a Capricorn (Gemini Rising), an American in Australia, and an Occultist.

I run a group for creatives on Discord called: The Crypt Club Kids and started my local Drink and Draw chapter.

As an artist I specialize in line heavy illustration with a focus on macabre and occult designs.

I aim to create work that connects people to communities, stories, and images they love.
