→ finally finished this drawing - feels really good to keep drawing for fun, without purpose or a goal, especially while drawing is also integrated into most of the ways that i make money and get by - keeps the fire burning ♡ → anyways, *please* don’t use or redistribute this without permission or credit don’t be a jerk!
Hey all! I am still struggling to pay off an ambulance bill all by myself because I had a very bad seizure a few weeks ago and had to be transported to the hospital. I’m a Native American art student working part-time and school is very expensive, making my life a little difficult right now. I’m humbling myself and asking for help.
Check out my art and consider commissioning me! (I do traditional and digital commissions)

I’d love to attend the Bay Area Queer Zine Fest next month as I was accepted to table zines but cannot do it w/o funds. I do not have an income as I’m unemployed & disabled and depend solely on what I make selling zines which isn’t much. If you can help in anyway by donating, becoming a monthly patron &/or buying zines from my shop, it’s much appreciated! Sape. 💓
How these Indigenous artists are taking back what the fashion industry stole
“The derogatory term ‘Indian giver,’ it sort of means taking back what was given, and in this show we’re doing that. We’re taking back our story, telling how we want to tell it. Taking back our voice.”
