Hello and Peace!
I'm Nafisah, or Tyshea on deviantART
I'm a Queer Chinese American Muslim artist.
You can call me Ty, Naf, Dye, or anything along those lines
I post my art sometimes,
but most of it goes on dA
You can also check out my art-only blog
Or buy my prints!

I post a lot of political/social stuff, so here's a [DISCLAIMER]

Blog also functions as an
art, fashion, & sexuality advice column,
so don't be shy!

I also have a blog for critiquing individual pictures, as well as storing my original tutorials

The Art of Self Care
On Gender Identity and
Sexual Orientation


I have met an angel and my life will never be the same

You know I’m really sick of this trend of setting straight girls up with this dreamboat guy, only to pull the punchline of “HE’S GAY, JOKE’S ON YOU.”

I’m sick of girls, no matter their sexuality, being used as a cheap joke. I’m sick of telling girls that their affections are worthy of being laughed at. I’m sick of the ego some gay boys have, who say shit like “sorry girls I suck cock.”
Just as much as gay men are not to be used as “gay best friend” accessories for girls, girls do not exist to be used as accessories to feed male egos. Straight girls do not exist to validate a gay man’s attractiveness.

I’m sick of the standards for men being so low until they NEED TO APPEAL TO OTHER MEN. I’m sick of men being given special attention when “they actually try” to look good (“oh he cares more about clothes than girls!” “He’s so tidy for a boy!”).

Siiick of it.

I guess I have a thing for drawing fantasy girlfriends in modern clothes. CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP

Linette is Bee's wonderfully friendly knight and Constance is my grumpy Orc witch. You can see more of them here!

I need to design their actual in-world costumes sometime…

stand up for girls and women who don’t like to read. stand up for girls and women who can’t read. stand up for girls and women with low IQs. stand up for girls and women who can’t write. stand up for girls and women whose access to education has been prevented. for those with learning disorders. for those who mix up “your” and “you’re” because it’s not that big a fucking deal tumblr. stand up for women who are called ableist slurs for these things and stop implying that the only way to be a feminist icon is by being an intellectual.

reminder that if your body acceptance hinges on a person’s health it’s inherently ableist and I want nothing to do with it

men love “fat asses” and big titties but act like those things commonly exist naturally on thin women and they “don’t count” when accompanied by a jiggly belly and thick thighs
lol ok

Until my hair grows out enough to do topknots again, I guess I’ll just have to settle with an almost-pompadour??

Midnight selfies because why not.

#I LOVE THIS GIRLS ART #saladays #fambam

This morning, just before opening my eyes, I dreamed of a vivid winter day spent with you; it was as if my skin recalled the very temperature of your breath, and my palm remembered the exact size of your waist; so small and scared of the cold,
but the body heat trapped between our clothes was greater than my entire world.

ALSO I am sorry for how inactive I’ve been, especially on answering messages. Lots going on work-wise and health-wise.
Waiting to see the doctor in a couple weeks so I’ll update after that with some specifics. Until then I’ll still be really slow on answering messages.
Praying for everyone who’s having a hard time <3
