Alex "Dax" Bonenfant

I’m a visual artist who was born and raised in Central Florida. I love creating digital illustrations, comics, animatics, and character designs. When I’m not drawing, I enjoy spending my time listening to music or playing video games, though these both continually inspire me to keep creating.

 
Creative Corner Participant

Lionfish Healing:

This was my final project for a high school portfolio class, and is my most complex drawing. The piece combines creative skills learned that year with important fundamentals that were used in several other illustrations created for that class. This drawing has a lionfish merfolk, who is healing fish inside of bubbles, and is surrounded by a coral reef.

ILU:

Though this isn’t my most detailed illustration, it is one of my personal favorites and holds a special place in my heart. It started as a digital warmup sketch along with a few others in the same file, and I enjoyed the result of that sketch so much that I took some time to finalize it and use it as inspiration for a story. This drawing has 2 characters, one who’s a mermaid, and the other who’s a Deaf woman signing a declaration of love.

FanComic Godzilla and Spongebob Crossover:

This comic was created as a birthday present for a friend, but became my favorite comic I’ve made so far. I created it by looking up the quote I wanted to use,  then wrote a script, and created a sketch while referencing the characters I wanted to draw. Then I added detail and experimented with shading in order to easily repeat my method in later comics. This comic is a reenactment of a skit from Spongebob using characters from Godzilla.

I can confidently say that this organization is one of the best places you can sign up with if you are an adult on the spectrum who needs help with developing any kind of area in your life, including: social skills, independent living skills, self-advocacy, job readiness skills and vocational skills, and much more! I have personally seen dozens grow from joining and participating in these programs. In addition, every single staff member—as well as the founder herself—put every fiber of their being towards helping clients and creating a safe, positive environment for everyone.

ASD Adult Achievement Center is truly a remarkable place to work at. There, I've met a lot of people that go through similar challenges that I also face. Here, I've learned all sorts of new techniques that will help more when I'm in a workplace to improve from the struggles that I have been going through and I have made many designs of creativity in the working environment.
