Hi There!

I’m Dean. I’m a disabled queer artist and activist based in Chicago. I’m an illustrator and communications specialist by trade, and I travel quite a bit to speak about ableism, accessibility, and representation. I graduated out of the Design department at Columbia and my work tends to focus on disability. I am currently an MA Civic Media student looking at social media’s ability to create and empower communities.

You can follow my work and my words on Twitter and Instagram.

Have a great day!
