Kelly and I will be interviewing DJ Svoboda, creator of imagifriends.


“I have created The Imagifriends based on difficult situations I have faced growing up with Autism. They are brightly colored characters who help and support one another. They live in a wonderful place called Imagiville where everyone is accepted " just the way they are" and no one is ever picked on or mistreated. I want to use my art to help encourage others with Autism and to let them know that they too can help make the world a better place.” “Coming up with the names of each Imagifriends is a little bit challenging. To come up with a name I take a couple of words and use those letters to come up with a name…For example; I take the words Paper and Happy, I think for a minute and then in my mind I say-pahappery,so it can be a little challenging sometimes but it is worth it.”
“For my art I use Micron pens size 8 and 5 and for the coloring I use Crayola super tip markers. One big challenge is to add everyone’s favorite colors. I enjoy being an artist and I really love helping those with Autism and disabilities.” D.J. has also just had his first book published. It is about acceptance for those with Autism.
