It’s Thanksgiving which means tables decorated with tiny porcelain figures of Native Americans sharing corn with pilgrims. It’s a holiday about being grateful, coming together, and being at peace but while we use caricatures of a great people, mainstream media ignores their cries for help. While we set tables with servings of food that are far too large, the original inhabitants of this great nation struggle to fight for clean drinking water and respect for their ancestors.
I’m not great at words but this issue is very dear to my heart so here’s some art.
This was supposed to be for Thanksgiving, but guess who got sick? Anyways, currently, I still am, thus the reason for my inactivity ;-; I may not know Thanksgiving properly, but I know turkey is involved!
One of the things I am amazed but thankful for, is the l💚ve social media has shown me over the last few months. From sharing or liking my art, leaving words of encouragement in my comments/ messages💪🏾, to following my art pages and being interested in purchasing my art, I am extremely appreciative and humbled 🙏🏾.
So I’ve finally decided to open 5 commission slots, and see where this thing goes.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and what better way to Thank the heavens than to draw domestic Sheith? Based on @lordzuuko‘s Voltron Family AU that gives me life. I might color this later but IDK.
