Hello beautiful people!
So anyone who’s paid attention to my blog can tell you I’ve got some financial problems right now. Commissions are my only income right now and I need to pay for rent, school fees, I need to pay for a plane ticket back home to Rhode Island, and of course I still need money for groceries and other living expenses. I am down to the wire right now, and need to earn some money in a bad way. Even the smallest amount helps, even if all you can do is signal boost.
Here’s how it works:
If you want a commission all you have to do is send me an email with the idea you have. Reference images are appreciated for everything, especially fanart. If you want me to actually design a character for you that’s super awesome too, but will cost a little extra. You can send payment through paypal, either using a credit card or one of those prepaid gift cards you get a gas stations and the supermarket. You can totes get it shipped to you if you’d like, but that also costs a little extra. All my prices are based on the amount of time it would take me to finish the work at just above minimum wage. If you want me to draw you, fine! If you want your best friend as an awesome mythical creature? sweet! I will pretty much draw anything, but as a fair warning I am not the best at drawing animals, and I am far too squeamish to draw anything NSFW. Shippy things are perfectly okay as long as the naughty bits are covered. Ain’t nothin wrong with all that jazz, but it’s just not for me. (plus it’d come out terrible if I even tried to draw it) Everything else is fair game.

Even if you are not going to buy a commission, or maybe you just don’t have the money right now, it would mean a whole lot to me if you could even just reblog this post so maybe it can be seen by someone who could use some art in their life. Signal Boosts are awesome.
I need to get over 450$ before October 1st, It would mean the world to me if you could just reblog this even if you can’t buy a commission.
How about some love for a good police officer?
Officer Gaetano Acerra
Responded to a call where a 13 year old boy didnt want to live in his home anymore. He found out that the family couldnt afford a bed or much else for the teen.
So he bought him one. A big queen sized one.
He also bought him a Tv and someone donated a Wii, so now they play whenever Officer Gaetano Acerra has a chance
He also plans to get him a dresser, mirror, and a hamper. Among other things he needs but cannot afford.
People. They’re not ALWAYS a bunch of bastards.
The corruption needs to go.
This guy can stay.
I find posts like this to be so disturbing. There will always be that ONE example that any damn person can find to say “not all cops” “not all white people,” etc. And when you spread stories like this you are completely missing the point. This just completely obfuscates the point that the systems we are talking about here are rotten to their core and that the police as an institution need to go and be replaced from the ground up. There is no such thing as “reforming” an institution like the police that was literally founded as white slave patrols to control black movement and capture runaway slaves. There is no such thing as “reforming” an institution that brutalizes black bodies and lives with impunity and has for decades and centuries. And this will continue to happen even if you “diversify” the forces to throw some token black and brown faces into the mix. This will continue happen even if you all continue to bend over backwards to find THAT ONE GOOD COP so that we don’t ever actually confront the ugly truth that the institution he is a part of is antiblack and rotten at its core and will never support black lives. It’s so telling that people gobble up stories like this because people in this country are so incredibly dishonest and will find any way to deflect conversations which center the humanity of black people. They don’t want to have frank discussions about institutional power and police brutality as it’s leveled against us. No, they instead want to talk about and try to defend “the good cops” even as black people are literally getting killed, harassed and maimed daily by the police as an institution. These people are so incredibly morally bankrupt.
The corruption will not go as long as the police exist. This white man you are all lauding as a hero needs to go as well as the entire corrupted institution he is a part of. The police cannot be “reformed” as that will never ultimately protect and save us from an institution literally founded around the brutalization of black lives and bodies in this country. I don’t care that this guy is “nice” and did an individual act of kindness when the institution he is a part of has proven itself again and again for decades to actively work to undermine and destroy black lives in this country. The only thing that will work is tearing this institution down and rebuilding it from the ground up with a totally new value system which actually values the sanctity and humanity of black life. And in this process, your token examples of “good cops” which you all love to use to deflect from these larger conversations about the white supremacy and patriarchal violence at the center of our police, they need to go as well, because that is what it takes for us to destroy and recreate these totally corrupted, virulently antiblack institutions.
