I am a disabled lesbian survivor who suffers from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to a traumatic past that left me hospitalized for a short while. My battles with cPTSD lead me into a world of art and writing as I tried to find ways to express myself better and help myself cope with the madness within. By all accounts I’m considered clinically insane, but I keep myself together with bits of string and sticky tape.
During my struggles to cope with my mental issues I started to create my own small press company, Kat And Neko Manga, starting with my first manga series A Shadowlander’s Dream, which was the tale of a girl lost between the worlds of Dream and Reality. This story gained a small fan following that lead me to writing my first novel Dreaming of Another Day, which is the story of my high school years and how I survived some of the worst times in my life. The story was written to help me get out a dark secret that I’d been baring and help put my thoughts onto paper.
Though these stories I met many others people like myself. They claimed the story helped them in their own recovery and showed them the strength they needed to continue on. Hear this gave me the strength as well as a purpose. I wanted to tell more stories. Wanted to create worlds that people could be absorbed into, characters they could relate to and more then anything help them realize that they were not as alone in this world as we all thought.
It was also through these stories that I met my beautiful and lovely wife, Kimberly ~theredwolf13 . It is because of her I was able to post many of my stories that I felt ashamed of or embarrassed about. She encouraged me to write more and return to art after a 5 year break away from it all, after a slight mental breakdown and had to shut down the Kat And neko manga site. She is my muse and reason I am alive today, my soulmate and my love. Without her I'd never complete so many novels or start work on my new Yuri manga series Inside OuT
Since being together I’ve returned to my old goals, striving to create works that people can relate to in one form or another. I work much slower then I did all those years ago and my works may not be the best, but I put my all into everything I do and love doing it. I'm glad so many enjoy what I do and thank you all for reading or looking at my works. I hope to have many more tales for you all in the coming future. I may take a month or two off from time to time as I deal with the insanity in my head and life, but one thing is for certain. I love what I do and I'm never going to quit doing it.
Thanks for dropping by my page and reading this
Kat - AKA Shinigami Shimai
Q:Can you help me with a serious issue?
A:If you are seeking help or have questions regarding your sexuality or relationship issues then someone at one of these clubs might be able to help you more then I could, If you send me a message regarding this stuff don't get upset with me because I don't have the answers. I'm just human. I simple write and draw these stories, that doesn't make me all knowing when it comes to this stuff.
Other places that possibly can help:
Sexuality and U
Kids Help Phone
Gay youth line
Q: What program do you use for your art?
A: I started out with Photoshop 5.5 back in the day and PS CS2 until recently when I was convinced to work with Sai. I primarily use the pentool for my lines and colouring. You can find my tutorials here: [link] Which need to be updated soon...
Q: Where did you get your toner from?
A: Art stores mostly. I bought a lot during a sale once years ago. Also during my con years I was giving all kinds of free pages from dealers, one of the perks of being a GoH I guess. *shurgs*
Q: Do you mind if I draw you some fan art?
A: I always enjoy getting fan art for my stories. So send them away.
Q: Will you be attending "Insert con or event here"?
A: I no longer attend conventions or anything like that due to stress issues. Sorry, I don't see myself attention conventions for a long time still.
Q: Is Inside OuT [link] based on your life?
A: No, it isn't. I did attend a school of the arts and it is similar to the one in Inside OuT, but that is about it. My high school years were much darker and can be read here: [link]
Q: Why is your online name "Shinigami Shimai"?
A: The name comes from my first manga series A Shadowlander's Dream created back in 97 and refers to nine sisters of death who reside at the edge of reality. I was looking for a unique name that no one else used. That was back in the late 90ss and since then it stuck. The end of June 2012 I finally changed to to The-Yuri-Canon. More about the meaning behind this new name here: [link]
Q: How long have you been married to your wife?
A: We got married on Jan 29th of 2005.
Q: Why do you draw so much yuri and lesbianism?
A: Because I'm a old lesbian and works from experience and there just isn't enough yuri in the world!
