Jin Wicked is Creating Art, Comics, Podcasts, and Videos

Hello, everybody! My name is Jin Wicked!

I am a visual and performance artist, illustrator, podcaster, and writer. Life is art! My homepage is JinWicked.com.

Much of my creative work involves deconstruction of the self, inner vs. outer perception, evolution of identities, and the communication of complex emotional states through portraiture and heavy use of symbolism.

My work bridges the gap between colourful humour and darker subject matter such as anxiety, depression, mental illness, and neurodiversity. Much is therapeutic in nature. I love to inspire others to pursue their passions and goals!

I am best known for my autobiographical web comics, "Crap I Drew on My Lunch Break" (2003), "A Dollar Late and A Day Short" (2008), "Have Tablet Will Scribble" (2015), and "Queen of Assholes" (2018).

In addition to my comics, I produce a personal blog and vlog, studio artwork and illustrations, occasional podcasts, and an assortment of videos ranging from musical collages to Q&A and skit comedy for my YouTube channel.

I share political commentary via Facebook and Twitter.

My other hobbies/interests include cooking and baking, photography, crafts, language, musical instruments, singing, dancing, roller skating, health and fitness, weight lifting, education, and science. I am also a professionally-trained custom picture framer with twenty years of experience.

Though I take advantage of all opportunities to learn, I did not attend any secondary education, and I am primarily self-taught. After years of struggling with anxiety, depression, then watching my mother pass away before age sixty, I had an early mid-life crisis. I got divorced, lost 70lbs, and moved across the country from Houston, Texas, to Saint Paul, Minnesota, where I began building a new life in 2015.

In early 2019 I was diagnosed with ADHD, and I began medication which, combined with a better understanding of how my attention span and focus operate, has helped me to conquer many of the frustrations and obstacles that have plagued me for most of my life beginning in childhood.

In late 2020 I was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. My diagnosis, after a life-long search, finally provided me with answers and context for my persistent difficulties with communication, social and interpersonal skills, and feeling "othered." It has also helped me to make peace with much of the abusive treatment I have been subjected to, especially while growing up, as a result of my condition.

I am an advocate for progressive politics, supporter of social justice causes, and do my best to give back and be involved in my community whenever possible. In the past this has included charitable giving, classroom activities with school children, work in senior/elder care, helping to promote and facilitate my local comic book convention, and being involved with/supporting small animal rescue.

In an effort to be environmentally-friendly (and thrifty!) almost 100% of the colourful jackets and other clothing items I can be seen wearing at events and in my videos are secondhand/used, often purchased from individual sellers and small home-based businesses like myself.

I personally pack and ship each order sold directly from my studio.

My whole life is dedicated to artistic and personal growth, and emotional, mental, and physical development.

I hope you will consider supporting my work. Thank you!
