About the Chicken Smoothie team
Chicken Smoothie would not be possible without the huge support offered by our team, thanks everyone!
I started up this website in early 2008 with just a little HTML knowledge and digital drawing skills to get things
started. Nick (my brother) soon joined the site and his coding skills gave us the trading and adoption system, along
with many other upgrades. A lot of the pets we use today are still based on my original lineart drawings from '08 and
'09, but we have added more variety with our ever-growing artist team :) I employ many people nowadays to help put out
the monthly pet designs, but I'm still around to control the site direction and keep things running smoothly.
I'm the software developer, database architect, and server administrator behind Chicken Smoothie. I'm the one who builds
the stuff that powers our website and the forum. I answer our support email address and handle payments and site
privacy. I also maintain our cheating detection system to keep the game fair for everybody. Occasionally I draw some
pets too :).
I started out as a Global Moderator back when the site was still in its infancy, worked my way up to be an Admin
Assistant until I lastly joined Tess and Nick in their ranks. I am mostly in charge of solving trade disputes but I
still fulfill tasks assigned to my former titles. I also maintain the Pound, help a little around behind the scenes and
occasionally you will find some pets designed by me.
I live in the Midwestern part of the US and am currently getting prepared to move into my semi-new house with my brother
to go to college. I have 4 pets; A black lab retriever mix named Ashlyn, a long haired cat named Maestro, a Leopard
Gecko named Ryu, and a blue betta fish named Pepsi. I love buffalo wings and drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee with
cream. And lastly, I love wiggly weasels! (￣▽￣)ノ☆
Hallo there. I'm Draca, a Belgian woman in my twenties with a weird sense of humour and a love for macabre things. I
love drawing, writing, developing characters, world building, and of course CS. I started out as an Oekaki Moderator
before getting promoted to Global Moderator and now I'm here. The Oekaki boards remain my favourite, though. I really
love OCs (both mine and other people's), and I have a knack for talking about characters for hours on end. Please don't
get me started if you're not prepared for that. When I'm not trying to break people's hearts with sad stories and art,
I'm probably gaming.
I'm a young woman living in Southern Canada, currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Museum Studies. I live with my
wonderful boyfriend and an assortment of hamsters. We breed Syrians, so feel free to message me about hamsters or their
care. I love animals and ride English hunter/jumper as well as have a scholarship to sing in two choirs. I am an avid
reader when I'm not in school, and have run my own business. I'm interested in education and how to engage people with
art and history. I'm always willing to help out, and I love to draw and write. I love working with rarities and trading
Hey hey! I am Verdana. I am a young woman living I. South Africa, with my two dogs. I joined Chicken Smoothie in 2009
as a teenager. Since then, I have been a General Helper, Global Mod and finally an Admin Assistant, and gotten a
Bachelor of Social Sciences. I am currently doing my postgraduate degree in archaeology. Outside of Chicken Smoothie,
my passions are horse-riding, writing and teaching children how to debate. Within CS, I love to roleplay, get involved
in user-made projects, and occasionally make my own art and design pets. I am always on hand to help out or just have a chat!
I'm an American audio producer who tends to an inherited love of the arts. I am gender-fluid and partially colorblind,
and addicted to classic rock, Supernatural, betta fish, cats, organization (to an extent). c: I have an open-door
policy, which means you're free to contact me and chat, but please refrain from typing in blue!
I'm a young college girl in the Rocky Mountain Region of the United States. My future goals include becoming a
geneticist and owning those cute fuzzy chickens. My hobbies include playing the flute, drawing, designing, studying
genetics, and horseback riding. I really miss my horse, my little dog, and even my fish that I had to leave at home so
if you have any cute pet photos you want to share, please don't hesitate to message me!
There is almost always a ChickenSmoothie tab open in my browser and you'll often see me in my natural habitat: the
Oekaki adoptable boards. I hope to contribute to the CS community the same support and open-arms that helped me decide
to buy my first pen-tablet and download gimp! I like to believe that I am a very welcoming and helpful person, so don't
be afraid to approach me about anything!
Hey there! I'm a goat-obsessed female currently studying a BA in Geography, working as a transcriber for African
migrants settling in Britain and spending what little time I have left at rugby training. I adore travelling and
experiencing the obscure, weird and wonderful and enjoy encompassing what I learn into my writing. Although I don't have
a lot of spare time left over for roleplaying, I adore throwing myself head-first into the fictional world of OCs and
friends, I hail from Australia and am fortunate enough to reside on the traditional land of the Kaurna people. Kaurna
miyurna, Kaurna yarta, ngadlu tampinthi. I'm a second generation Polish (Cześć, jak się masz?) individual who is owned
by three Miniature Pinscher boys; Remy, Jacques and Étienne. I like long walks on the beach or in the forest,
travelling, reading fantasy novels, table top gaming and kitchen experimentation. I have an unhealthy obsession with all
things Halloween. Would you like to know more? Please contact me at your earliest convenience! On a more serious note,
feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns - my inbox is always open.
Despite all my efforts to grow up into a cat, I am instead an introverted fantast with a terrible addiction to sweets
and bad movies...so I wear a lot of cat ears to try and make up for it ;3 I'm currently residing in Australia and
studying interactive media. My door - well, inbox - is always open if you want to talk!
Hey there !! I'm Graham, a disabled twenty-something nonbinary folk living in good ol' swampy Louisiana. I'm known to my
friends as a cat daddy; my baby boy being a black cat named Percy Jackson. I do a lot of art, taxidermy, cookin', and
video gaming !! If you need any help with the Oekaki, I'm your man.
I'm a young college girl living with my boyfriend in the northeast United States, and in less than a year I'll be
graduating with my degrees in musical performance and creative writing. My favorite things are playing oboe and piano
and writing the novel I hope to one day publish! I love all animals and currently keep 4 freshwater aquariums housing
bettas and other tropical fish, as well as my bunny named Proteus. When I'm not on CS, you can most likely find me
spending time with my wonderful boyfriend, writing, cuddling my bunny, or working on my aquariums. If you ever need
anything from me please don't hesitate to ask!
For years my life was pointe shoes and pirouettes, but now I just live on top of a mountain and never come down. I miss
lightning bugs when the stars come out and I carve moments in that time to fulfill my dream of becoming a published
author. My spouse and I have two adorable feline companions: Josie the tabby and Luna the Scottish fold. If you're
looking for me I can usually be found eating something sweet, curled up on the couch with my laptop and a cat.
Hey! I'm a twenty-some-odd year old married mother living in the USA. I spend most of my time at home caring for my
daughter and keeping house. When I do get a bit of free time, I love to spend it drawing and playing on CS with my
online friends. My other hobbies include reading, writing, fishing, hiking, horseback riding (but not the sport kind of
stuff; just going out and joy riding through the mountains and feilds), and playing xbox with my husband.

Hey there! I'm a young woman who is currently attending college in hopes for a degree in biology or medicine. I tend to
be quite quirky and one of the most socially awkward turtles you will ever meet. I'm a human encyclopedia full of the
most random information in many fields of interest. I also dabble in many hobbies and activities of interest such as
art, music and writing. You'll usually find me glued to my computer doing some writing of some sort, doodling, or with
my nose in a good book.
You may have seen before in my former role as general helper. I still hold the same 'open-door' policy, so please don't
hesitate to contact me for anything, so long as you don't mind me rambling. I promise I don't bite! c:
I'm a young adult living in the midwest of the United States. I'm currently attending college to get a degree in
economics. I absolutely love reading and can never have enough books. Other interests of mine include writing, and
acting. I love shows like Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Supernatural. I have a fabulous border collie named Kandihar. Don't
be scared to drop me a PM for anything; I'm a lighthearted person and I promise I don't bite. :3
Hey there, PitchBlack, or simply Pitch, here. I am a girl in her late twenties living in the Midwestern United States
with my hubby and our zoo of animals. We have 2 dogs, some cockatiels, and some aquariums that keep us quite busy as
we are preparing to have kids soon. I received a Bachelors in Animal Sciences back in 2010 and have been working in
a vet clinic since. As for hobbies I enjoy, drawing is a secret passion of mine, and I greatly enjoy music, movies,
and anything to do with my SRT8 Challenger. I can't think of much else to say, but know I am very friendly so feel
free to contact me if you need a bit of help with something. ^_^
A girl in her early twenties, living in Germany and in the last year of a B.Sc. in Bioscience. Hopeless music-addict
with a weak spot for fruits, bakery, everything in the colour green and especially a good laugh. I love to write (and
roleplay or just create characters, or everything at the same time =D). Besides I am a little nerd with a huge weakness
for Marvel (especially the MCU) - and movies and series in general. Another weakness of mine are baby animals with all
their fluff <3. For some reasons I like to gather dream-catchers and joke around (a lot). Sometimes I do photography
or enjoy to swim or just chill around and do nothing at all^^
Hey there! I am a young woman living in the South-Eastern United States, with way too many interests and way too little
time. Working towards a degree in Biology with a Music Performance minor, I am currently under the impression that I
want to become a veterinarian. Teeny, fluffy animals (like my Holland Lop, Oreo) melt my heart, but I do love our dorm
room betta, Levi, and have always wanted a tortoise or snake, so just mark me down for all the animals. I play cello in
and out of school and try to make time for the important things, like writing, reading, crochet, and my plethora of
fandoms. Every now and again I do get out of the dorm and can be found hanging in my camp hammock and fighting off
mosquitoes after a nice day's hike. Ah... and I love to chat, so feel free to hit me up any time! c:
I am a Canadian college student. I’m currently studying animation (3D) and hope to work for DreamWorks someday. I’m a
writer and I love art, sometimes I will mix the two and make comics, I hope to have one of them published one day. When
I’m not drawing, writing or at school, I’m hiding away on CS or playing with one of my two cats. I love all things
fantasy, nerdy and I love watching cartoons.
Hi there! I'm a young woman hailing from the little corner of the USA known as New Jersey. Outside of CS, some things I
enjoy doing are reading and writing, listening to all kinds of music, watching TV, taking long walks, and playing
Pokémon games. I have a love for history as well. My inbox is always open if you need help or just want to chat! I'm not
the person to ask about trade fairness, but I should be able to help with most other site questions. Along with being a
native English speaker, I am semi-fluent in German, so wenn ihr wollt, dürft ihr mir jederzeit auf Deutsch schreiben!
I'm also a beginner with Russian.
Hello! I'm a teenage girl working my way through life with a passion for art, which I wish to have a career in one day.
I love spending my time on the oekaki boards and seeing all the amazing things you guys can create, and i'm always there
to help out if you need me! Accompanied by my old tabby cat, I draw as much as I can, and love sharing my art with
others and making people laugh. I also enjoy reading and writing stories, especially about OCs, and I love to hear and
get to know about other people's too! I'm here if you need help or just a friend to talk to. Also, call me Sib!
I've been a CS user since 2010 and joined the team in 2015. CS is always my go-to place on the web because the people
here are amazing, the art is wonderful, and the discussions are always worth participating in! This little community has
been a milestone in my progress as an artist – without it I may have never discovered digital art, which I am now
pursuing study in. Outside of CS, I am a studious, book-and-computer-loving nerd who is surprisingly semi-athletic (?)
with a huge love for metaphysical concepts, literary devices, anthropomorphism, and color schemes that incorporate every
hue. I write novels that encompass my whole life and I think animation is more than cartoons in the way graphic novels
are more than comics – communicating through moving pictures has always fascinated me.
I'm your average teenage girl who's currently attending university in the eastern part of the USA in hopes to be a
programmer or concept artist when I get out. In my past time, I enjoy drawing and try to do this as often as possible,
since I adore acquiring new skills in drawing and learning from others. You may also find me browsing the Oekaki boards
to watch new artists flourish, playing video games or even being a little bit mischievous at times when I'm not on my
Hello, I am a Turkish girl who lives in South East Asia. I have a love for art and enjoy messing around with as many
different styles and mediums as possible, be it digital or traditional. I speak both English and Turkish although my
Turkish can improve. One last thing you should know about me is that the Ğ in my username is silent. I bet you've been
pronouncing my name wrong this whole time.
I am a college-bound student hoping to study elementary education along the West Coast of the U.S. It's been my dream
since I was little to become a teacher, and possibly teach abroad. I'm also a Victorian era fanatic, Disney and Marvel
lover, extreme roleplayer, avid dancer, and world traveler. Basically, a nerd with way too much time on her hands. Most
days you'll find me glued to my computer watching the latest British TV show, or with my nose stuck in some extremely
old book wishing I lived in an era without technology. However, I do like to use my computer to communicate with the
lovely members of CS, so feel free to pop me a PM anytime!
Hello! I'm a German gal currently living in Finland with my significant other and hoping to get a job in game design or
illustration at some point. I am horribly lazy and tend to forget about generally everything, but when I'm not busy
procrastinating or sleeping, you'll usually find me drawing/designing cute and shiny stuff.
On CS I try to provide you guys with lots and lots of sparkly and bright pets as some might have already noticed; and
while I'm not against a friendly chat most days, my PMs on here are disabled because I simply forget to reply too often
and don't want to seem impolite.
Let's see... I guess I'm just some brazilian girl with an irrational love for biology, Sonic, dragons and a certain
demonic cat called Billy... who is most likely either climbing my curtains or chewing my plushies as you read this. My
interests involve stuff like cinema, cartoons, DC Comics, greek mythology, fanfiction and books. Writing is also a great
passion of my life, so much I've been working on a book series project of mine for the past eight years. Getting it done
and published one day is a huge dream of mine! Now, regarding my art, another of my massive passions, I'm a self taught
artist who has been drawing since... forever! I specially love to plan up realistic species and headworld concepts. To
me there's no better feeling than that of bringing your fantasy creations to life through lots of realism-based
planning, writing and designing. The same for characters, since dealing with their personality and backstories through
psychology is absolutely fascinating.
But oh well, I'd better stop before I babble about this all day XD. You're always free to toss me a PM, though. I love
to chat and I swear my stupidity is not contagious.
I'm a young woman, born in Colombia, but have lived in Denmark my entire life. I'm currently applying for the university
to study German, while I wait for a pupil spot as a dog groomer. I got an Akita Inu dog named Silver, who I call my
fuzzy bear <3 My hobbies are to draw and to cosplay. I go to conventions often, and uses a lot on time on planning my
next cosplay. I'm obsessed with a Danish soda called "Squash", and loves to eat corn from a can too~ Feel free to drop
me a PM if you got any question :>
I'm an artist with many interests, happy to help when and where I can! If you want to know something in particular about
me, don't hesitate to ask. ^ ^
Greetings! Do sit down and join me for a spot of tea while I regale about myself. I'm a british lady, born and bred.
I've been working on CS since 2008 and was originally a site moderator. I changed to an artist sometime around 2010
because I was making a loooot of items for the site. My work on site now mainly consists of creating various items for
pet dressup, I do so love to see fashionable dressups! I mostly lurk around the forums and clean up a little here and
there, I also do not mind a casual chat, so feel free to pop over for a chat but bring some cake, alright?
Other team members
Call me Ceru! I'm an American teenager who spends the majority of her time acting in local productions; I hope to
someday make acting into a career. The rest of my days are spent playing Starbound, working on art, and trying to calm
down my high-anxiety Shiba. I really love meeting new people and chatting with other community members, so feel free to
shoot me a PM!
Like Tess and Nick I live in New Zealand. Tess and I are best friends in real life and have been since we were 12 or 13.
I study English, Theatre and Linguistics at University while working as a librarian. I do lots of acting in my spare
time and hang out with Tess when we were not doing assignments for Uni. Some of my interests include Japan, anime,
Batman (hence my custom) and of course theatre, film and literature. Though I'm not actually a moderator don't be afraid
to PM me because I can help out with any discrepancies you might have. I do a small amount of moderation but the
moderators are so amazing at their job I'm hardly needed.
Hey there! I'm an American art college freshmen looking to major in illustration who misses her cats and dogs back at
home. You might see me floating around the art forums and especially the Minecraft fan club. I love all kinds of art
medias, video games (especially Minecraft), all types of music, and talking with my friends! I love having more friends
to talk to, so if you want to chat or have any questions, just PM me!
I am a teenager living in the UK with my four Jack Russell Terriers and two ferrets. Some of my hobbies include reading
and drawing, usually whilst listening to Welcome to Night Vale or Breaking Benjamin. Feel free to message me, I love to
