Hello! My name is Yamasztuka, but to make it a tad bit easier, you can call me Yama or Ethan. Whichever you would prefer. I use he/they pronouns, speak English and mid-level Esperanto, and am an artist, writer, composer, webmaster, educator, archivist, computer technician… let us just say that I am a lot of things! As a jack of all trades but a master of none, you will see a wide selection of the things that I spend my time doing on this website. Take a look around, stop and smell my digital peonies!
What can you find here? Quite a lot, actually. Most of this site focuses on my art and worldbuilding, but there is much else as well. You can check out some of my self-hosted creative projects, my best artworks in the Gallery, my super old artworks in the Artchive, my excessively boring blog posts, an ongoing wiki project of my worldbuilding, and my little archivist pages for things nobody quite cares about. Sounds like a lot of fun! I hope you will enjoy reading my webpages and looking at my artwork as much as I did making them.
If you are interested in using any of my work, whether it be art, writing, webdev, or anything I have made, check out the licenses page! There’s a good chance that you will be able to use what you're looking for.
If you would like to contact me, there are a few main ways to do so. You can PM me on Mastodon or Tumblr, send me a direct message on Discord, or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Links to my socials will be found on the bottom left corner of the home page. My inbox is typically open for most inquiries, so don't hesistate to reach out.
This is very much a simple website, and is not anything fancy. It was all crafted by hand, but with the help of some key individuals! These being:
Lucia, who set up the Yamasztuka Wiki, provided some custom CSS for me, taught me how to self-host and use the Linux terminal, and provided endless advice and troubleshooting during my setup and creation of this website! It would not have been possible without her.
Renata, who provided much artistic advice while I was just starting with web design.
The folks from the 32-Bit Cafe have been incredibly helpful helping me to troubleshoot and try out new ideas far beyond my skill ceiling. A huge thank you to them!
Teppy’s Layouts, who I modeled a significant portion of my subpage CSS on.
A huge thank you to all these lovely individuals and groups :)
