Quick post on what’s happening in Atlanta right now

    So there’s this beautiful trail in Atlanta called the South River Forest Trail. As we all know, Atlanta Georgia is renowned for their tree cover and historic forests. 

    The City of Atlanta and corporations like Delta, AT&T and Amazon are funding a massive police training center that will destroy the forest.

    Dubbed ‘cop city’ by many protesters, this will cost about $90 billion with a B to build. This will be used to further militarize Atlanta’s police leading to more incidents of police brutality in the city. 

    On January 18th indigenous activist Manuel “Tortuguita” Teran was shot and killed by the police for defending this historic forest from destruction. Their reason? “He did not comply”. Many protests have been going on in Atlanta to defend this forest.

    Since Tortuguita’s death, the situation has quickly deteriorated

    This forest is very dear to me but I am unable to physically protest at the moment, so I am handing this off to Tumblr to spread awareness. Rebloging this may help this tragedy become part of national news instead of just an Atlanta problem.

    ♥  Gift Guide Help  ♥

    Hi all :-) 

    As you know one of my fave things is to browse the net for cool trinkets and goodies, so if you’re a bit stuck on finding a gift for your pal/co-worker/dog/enemy this holiday season - send me an ask and I’ll see what I can find! 

    All you need to give me as a guide is a budget, and a lil summary of their personality (fave movies, season, trinkets, colour, hobby, something they hate perhaps) and I’ll see what I can do! 

    SLOTS OPEN: 8/9
    Hi! After unexpectedly needing to replace my phone I'm really struggling to make it through the next month or so. I need to be able to pay my upcoming phone bill and pay for transport to/from school.

    I'm comfortable with fanart, OCs, anthros, et cetera; I'm also totally down to work on illustration or character design projects that are broader in scope than the ones shown here. If none of these examples look like what you have in mind, let's chat!!!

    You can see more examples on my artfight profile if you have an account there!

    DM me if you're interested and I can give you a price estimate and details about payment! I prefer to use p/aypal but if that doesn't work for you we'll see what we can do ^_^

    Reblogs are hugely appreciated!

    Hey so I’ve avoided having to do this before, but I need to actually ask for help, for once. The last couple months sucker punched me kinda hard and I need to keep being able to make rent, so if I could get some help (whether in exchange for art or not) I’d greatly appreciate it.

    I set up a “Ko Fi” for this, you can either drop a little in a jar, or buy slots of various commission types.

    As for the parts about gamedev work: I’ll honestly need an actual job when I’m back from my trip, so if anyone is looking for an artist who can do concepts, spritework, 3D models, so on… send me a line, I’m in the market right now.

    All ill say if the us supreme court decides to turn over the indian child welfare act and i don't see white people talking about it, especially white lgbt people, i will be pissed

    whatisr3alityy

    Putting this on my account so it reaches my audience. I don't know what this is or what's happening but if I can spread awareness for those who need it, I'll happily talk about it.

    So the ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act) basically prevents the removal of Native American children from their homes, which essentially removes them completely from their culture and whitewashes them. Obviously, that’s not very good, which is why the tribes fought to get the bill instated and now people are trying to remove it, which is why it’s going to the SCOTUS. Which is why that link above is very helpful!

    Commissions are open!

    Hey, I don't know if anyone is interested but I have my commissions open! https://kitteypwince-commissions.carrd.co/

    someone in the UK threw eggs at Charles and was arrested and has been banned from openly carrying eggs in public and has since been sent death threats but their statement on the matter was so fucking good

    torso

    alongside online abuse, public threats, risk of expulsion from their university, and everything else, they are currently facing legal fees of up to £10,000 - and if they r found guilty at trial it’s 6 months of prison and a £5,000 fine - >>>>and you can donate to their paypal fund-raiser here<<< please consider donating what you can, just a little goes a long way!! 

    violentdevotion

    i saw that their gofundme was taken down and didn't know if there was an alternative at the time of posting thank you for sharing !

    I haven’t yet seen a tumblr post with these resources so I am making my own and hoping it shows up in the tags. I ASK EVERYONE WHO SEES THIS TO PLEASE REBLOG THIS.

    THE INDIAN CHILD WELFARE ACT (ICWA) IS UNDER ATTACK. AND WE NEED HELP TO PROTECT IT USING THE RESOURCES BELOW.

    I am not going to go into heavy detail on the bill, on its history, anything like that, the resources have a lot of information, but as a little bit of background:

    It is a bill passed that forbids Native children from being adopted by non-Native families. This is for a good fucking reason, there have been historically large scoops of children taken from their Native families, at a much higher rate than white children (see the 60s scoop in Canada). These children are often abused in these homes, and their entire culture is taken from them (many end up not even knowing what tribe/nation they came from), hence the point of why they were taken in the first place (forced assimilation). Now, this does still happen through the foster care system, but this has protected in the case of adoption. It makes it that only Native families can adopt Native children.

    White people hate this and have been smearing it for years (think of the whole Lexi Choctaw/Alexandria P. situation, which was so fucked how they used that little girl). Now, the state governments of Texas, Louisiana, and Indiana have taken it to the Supreme Court to be ruled unconstitutional. This case is called Haaland v. Brackeen. Because white people … really want to steal Native children. This is being heard by the court, oral arguments start WEDNESDAY. ICWA could be overturned in the matter of weeks or even days.

    PLEASE USE ALL OF THESE TO PROTECT ICWA:

    Petition that will involve you sending messages to your Congressional leaders through their text automated system, only available to those in the US (BUT NOTE YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A CITIZEN, OR ELIGIBLE TO VOTE TO SIGN, JUST NEED TO BE IN THE US):

    https://resist.bot/petitions/PCCPGW 

    Petition to send a message to President Biden and leaders at the Department of Justice, this does have a place to put in your country so seems like it may be available for those outside of the US but I am unsure (consider also donating to the Lakota People’s Law Project if you are able to):

    https://action.lakotalaw.org/action/protect-icwa

    Petition to be sent to the Attorney General and Secretary of the Department of the Interior, since it is through change.org it likely can be signed from outside of the US:

    https://www.change.org/p/protect-the-indian-child-welfare-act

    PLEASE SIGN AS MANY AS YOU ARE ABLE TO. PLEASE REBLOG IF YOU SEE THIS. PLEASE HELP US PROTECT ICWA.

    Commissions are back open!!

    Here’s my new commission sheet again for reference:

    (I tagged some of my biggest fandoms that I make art for so if you like the way I draw a certain character…..👀 you can pay me to make them be silly if you wanna. I will also draw stuff from fandoms I’m not in + original characters too! I’ll basically draw anything that isn’t illegal/harmful/propaganda or nsfw!)

    This is such a stunning and gorgeous animation, OP! I love how you were able to convey a sense of beauty mixed with trepidation.

    This is the kind of art that makes me long for the pixel art era of Pokémon!
