TheyNamedHerRheulea's Profile Picture
Stacia Joy
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
Born on Good Friday in the Midwest, I grew up surrounded by forests and animals and thunderstorms that split the sky. Practically a wild-child, I survived mainly by crafting weapons out of sticks, making up characters to be my comrades, and adhering to a strict diet of cookies. After I grew up a little I relocated to New England to study illustration at RISD:CE. Three years later, I'm not in the Pacific Northwest, having moved to be close to mountains, good coffee, and a bigger writing community.

I have been writing for ten years, and creating art for about as long. My focus is on speculative fiction and illustrations that explore themes of relationships, self-exploration, snark, and a fascination for the natural world. To learn more about my storytelling projects and novels, visit my website.


Small talk kills me. I'll take my coffee black, thanks. Yes, the hair is real.


This guy was a challenge, but a FUN one. It's not every day you get to render a neon drug lord god, especially when you're given a little creative license. The only really intentional deviation I made, though, was the syringe needle as an ear bar piercing. Seemed fitting, to me.

Kudos to Sleyf for very inventive character design and development, and a heap of thanks as well for commissioning me! 

Art :icontheynamedherrheulea:
Character: :iconsleyf:

Really fun commission of a pair of character’s I’ve somewhat secretly fawned over for a while now. They’re Gaia and Verus, from the brain of Sleyf, and I couldn’t be more pleased with getting to depict them in my style! I’ve read a bit of their story, The Future Revised, and it’s juicy post-apocalyptic, with writers depicted as ROGUE CRIMINAL MASTERMINDS. YESS. 

And is Gaia in the nude?
Yes, yes she probably is.
Wild child.

I've got some free time on my hands, so I'm opening up six cheap commission slots of the above options! These quickie portrait commissions work great for gifts of loved ones, or for your favorite original characters, Sims, avatars, or roleplaying/video game characters! 

EDIT: Only two slots left!

Commissioning me is real simple:

- Snag one of the six slots (first come, first served) by private messaging me here on DA, and sending me the payment for your commission of choice! I accept either PayPal ( or Venmo (@Stacia-Joy). I will not accept commissions through comments, and any slots not paid for will not be held. 

- Send me references of the character you want me to make a portrait of. These can be other pieces of art, character designs, or photographs. Also send me a short description of the character(s) and what pose/facial expression you'd like them to have. For the sake of time I will not accept written descriptions alone as references. Interpreting written descriptions into a portrait you're happy with is a much more labor-intensive task than these slot prices accommodate for. 

- A list of background colors/textures you like, and ones you really DON'T like. As you can see above, the backgrounds will be a minimalist circle of color. 

- I will begin work on these commissions on a first-come, first-served basis. The sooner you snag a slot, the sooner you'll get your portrait! EDIT: wait time to get your slot finished is now into mid September.

Alright, folks, now hit me up! I look forward to meeting your cinnamon buns that are too pure for this world! 
Bare Bones Collection by TheyNamedHerRheulea

"BARE BONES is a collection of poetry, prose, and freeform writings by author/illustrator Stacia Joy that peels back the thick skin of expectations, self-preservation, and societal norms in an attempt to honestly communicate what life with depression and PTSD is like; a glimpse through the stark lens of rediscovering emotional fluency that reveals the juxtaposition of pain and beauty in its rawest form."

Yes, I am finally beginning to share publicly the writings that have helped me process, and are currently helping me process, living with PTSD and the repercussions of (now mostly healed) depression. It's time. Silence doesn't change anything. 

Feel free to read along and either find camaraderie in your own battles, or walk a little way alongside the fighters, learn, and become an ally.
