Buy Dorian Caine (Rozario Sanguinem) a coffee



Sup, I'm Dorian Caine (aka Rozario Sanguinem)! I'm a queer, disabled, and trans creative living in rural Appalachia. I draw and write a lot of different things but as a general rule, my works are centered around themes of alienation, monstrosity, taboo, nonconventional intimacy, and self acceptance -- with a generous helping of horror on both a personal and cosmic scale.

These things are often explored through various and sometimes disturbing lenses such as dominance and submission, nonconsent/reluctance, bodily transformation, and other transgressive/taboo relationships, cannibalism/vampirism, violent crime, mind-control, and just general monster-fuckery.

My "mission" as an artist/writer is striving to include those whose bodies and lives exist on the fringes of what's deemed "acceptable" within our society -- especially fat people, trans people, queer people, trauma victims, and neurodivergent people -- who often don't find themselves represented in anything but the most "vanilla" works of fiction. I want to create weird, transgressive art that explores the darker parts of the human psyche and our...stranger desires.

I also do more "generic" character design/character portraits and illustrations, though it's always totally possible that those themes might crop up in any of my personal work in those spheres. My current project is a multi-media webseries called Nocturnal Creatures -- which is an erotic horror series that I intend to focus on cycles, whether that be the cycle of death and rebirth that the main characters are caught in or on cycles of toxic behavior.
