Wheelchair-Bound Artist Challenges Herself To Draw Every Pokémon That Exists As A Human (30 Pics)

Published 4 years ago

Chey, aka Endifi, is a freelance artist who was born with a rare bone disease called osteogenesis imperfecta that left her wheelchair-bound. However, despite being impaired, the artist loves to draw and has challenged herself to draw every Pokémon that exists as a human.

The artist says that she absolutely loves Pokémon and has been a fan since childhood. Around 2009, Chey started drawing Pokémon “gijinkas” (Pokémon with human traits) inspired by an artist whose art she saw online. “In 2013, I loved Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire so much, I created some gijinkas based upon that generation,” explained the artist. “I created stories about my characters and my friends really loved it so much. In 2013, I even got a special reward on Deviantart for a Pokémon gijinka I drew.”

The award inspired Chey to do a challenge where she drew very single Pokémon in the National Dex as people. “Unfortunately, I started college to pursue a degree in Media and Animation,” explained the artist. “But in 2018, it was time for me to challenge myself in character designing because I personally felt my art needed adjustment. So I started my Pokémon gijinka project.”

In her project, Chey wants to be diverse, tell stories about the characters, and simply have fun. “Most of my gijinkas tend to be different people because I want to build and manufacture a creative world for them even if I’m just drawing a character. I even give them personal names just to humanize them more because when I was a kid, I always nicknamed my Pokémon,” explained the artist. “I’ve already completed the Kanto Dex and I’m almost done with the Johto Dex. And committing to this has not only improved my character designing skills, but myself as a person. So I would love to present you the starter gijinkas from both gens I’ve done and some other Poké gijinkas I’ve worked on.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
