If you visit my website at, you'll find my call for success stories from those living with special needs.  D.J. Svoboda is a talented young artist who recently contacted me and shared his story and his cool, whimsical artwork.  Check him out, and then share your own stories with me!  

Thanks, D.J.!

"My name is D.J. Svoboda and I am a Autistic Artist.

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. I have just had my first book published about acceptance for those with Autism. 

You can learn more about me,my book and my mission by visiting my website at www.

Have a very wonderful day, everyday!"

This is really cool! Lovely art but the thought behind it is even more so. I'm glad you're doing this -- you found a good one to feature!
