About Me

Hello, my name is Apex Altra*.
26 | East Coast, US | F (she/her)

I'm a half-human something. Alterhuman, aromantic, and a furry. My fursona is an American mink! When I was a kid I thought I was an alien cat inside a human body; things haven't changed too much. Overall I think I'd look much better without a human face, and because of this I have a long-standing preference for eyewear and masks.

Currently, I’m trying to finish up an M.S. in biology and am a creator on the side. I love drawing monsters and furries, and using art to express identity and explore weird shit. Since 2020 I’ve been steadily serializing my first long-form project, Katabasis.

My favorite...
