Rikkun

ANTHRO ARTIST

WOLFENNEC | SERGAL HYBRID

Hello and thank you for checking out my page!

I'm Rikkun, also known as thanshuhai in my internet username. I'm a half Filipino & Vietnamese who grew up here in the Philippines, I live a simple life. I'm an introvert, quiet, open, relaxed and shy guy.

I am a self-taught artist who draws anthropomorphic/furry art and a lot of fluffy stuff. I want to tell stories visually and express myself in this medium, I try to paint life and imagine the world around me through anthropomorphic art and somehow show what it is all about. I want to learn more and improve in the process. Not only for art, but also myself as a person.

I am inspired and driven by nature, fellow artist, friends and family. I just want to paint and share it to the world.

      Anthro Artist | ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ณ | He/Him | ISFP-A

      Thanshuhai (pronounced tan-shu-hai; real name Henry Joel Nguyen Villanueva, born December 11) also known as Rikkun, is a half-Filipino, half-Vietnamese freelance furry artist from Lucena, Philippines.

      A former Bachelor of Science in Information Technology student, he worked part-time as a cashier and computer technician before becoming a freelance artist.


      LIFE STORY

      This is a summary of my life and I how I came to be where I am today.

      My family originated from Saigon, current day Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. My mother is Vietnamese and father is Filipino who worked on the airport there back in the day until Vietnam War happened, that's when my family along with two eldest siblings moved here in the Philippines.

      My family lives a modest life here but life was rough, I was brought up in a broken family here in the Philippines with my single parent mother. I am the youngest of five siblings and one of last surviving two.

      I live a simple life growing up, I am a reserved, quite person, I was a slow learner when I was young and I remember only managing to learn how to read properly when I was late in my grade school and barely passing my grades. I was only able to excel on things I'm passionate about specially computers, when I was in high school I got a job as a part-time cashier and computer technician. I decided that I wanted to study Information Technology.

      When I was in college that's where I discovered about the furry fandom and that's when my interest in art sparked and I started drawing, I drop out in college due to financial issues, I started to focus working part-time and my freelance work to support myself, my single mother sibling and nephew.

      The furry fandom change my life for the better and where I discover my passion. I owe a big thanks to the amazing community and people who have supported my work through the years. I am content with my life now I only wish happiness to the people who care and I care about, All I want now is live life, explore and do art as long as I am living. Thank you for your time reading this.

      In memory of my loving Mama.
