Ask Foxi!   Blogspot   

Hi my name is Kenya Danino. I’m a freelance visual development artist currently working on several projects including concepts for start-up animation companies in India and France, music album cover designs, multiple self-projects and “The Misfit Sock” story franchise which raises awareness of and supports all misfits including artists, children without education or homes and people who are abused/bullied. This is a blog I made to show you the public what I’m made of as an artist with a goal to positively impact the lives of our children! I hope whoever views may enjoy what I have to offer! Thank you so much for your visit!

Woooo! I did a thing for Dragons! Lots and lots of dragons. But I can’t post until rating day :0

'What People Mistake For Naivete'

So on the side, I also write poetry and sometimes perform it spoken word. I showed this one to my grandmother and she said that I should share it on my sites, so ah, well heres a thing! I hope you enjoy it :)

Walking on eggshells 
Sure is an uncomfortable feeling
Childhood like spilled yolk, messy and runny
Perils of life poking and prodding at sensitive skin
Threatening to penetrate the barrier you thought you built strong
When you said you’d “put your foot down”
Truth of the matter is, that layer is insubstantial
Anything can get through it, and everything will

You’ll fall ill for periods of time and call it a cold or a fever
Cough up a lung or two in front of friends or on the streets
Before realizing the medicine lies in the tight bonds
Between you and the invisible
No doctor will tell you this

You will go through all the motions of life 
Cold winds in January
Heartache in February
Fresh air you can’t enjoy in the spring
Dead trees in the fall
A separated family at the dinner table
Repeat the cycle

Needing to increase your blanket count
Shedding two-hundred strands of hair per day, sometimes more
Reminding yourself that sunrises in the mornings are worth waking up for
That grey clouds bring storms that aren’t always gloomy and damaging

That you have a choice 
Your choices become more important with every passing day
Cherishing the little things that help the flowers grow around you
And within you, helps

Slowly, you’ll start to see differently
Snowflakes in January
Heart-warmed by February
Daffodils and begonias in the spring, making wishes on dandelions 
The array of colors in fallen leaves, a prelude to new life
Everyone’s crying at thanksgiving because they all hurt
But they do so with smiles and hugs
Repeat the cycle

Twenty years old and your whole life ahead of you
You’ll realize that you cannot rely on sight anymore
So you’ll walk on faith instead
If anything ever gets under your skin, it won’t hurt as much
Because you’ve grown that much stronger
And suddenly you’re walking on smooth pavement

Won’t be long until you sprout wings and taste another sweet freedom.

 Because sharks!~ <3 Animal Arithmetic concepting again. If I had to pick a fav character, I honestly really can’t but I’ll tell you ‘Tagger Shark’ would definitely be at the top of the list.

Hi darling! Thank you! <3 Gee, maybe I should make this thing a print, huh?

raining-down-hearts replied to your post “The paper parrot you made was beautiful! How much would it cost to get a paper cockatiel from you? If you want to make one, that is. I would love one.”

foxi if i’m ever rich im gonna buy a haast’s eagle from you muahahahha

OOOH!~ Haast’s Eagles are PURTY <3 I’m kind of sad they’re extinct. Big bird too, shipping that thing would be a beast if made at actual size haha! A tip to get it a little cheaper is to have me make a really large bird miniature, like to parrot size or crow size. It won’t be life size but it would be a detailed as the bird naturally is :)
