Hey, hi! for various reasons–discomfort w/Eugen as an admin, desire to actually play in the wilds of the federated space I'm nominally part of, wanting to try those sweet glitch-branch features, &c–after having been on mastosoc since November '16 I've decided to try out moving instances! I don't know if this will be my forever home, (there are many excellent instances I may end up taking a look at) but for now I'll be hanging out my shingle @firstname.lastname@example.org & seeing how it goes! please come say hi💖
We're working hard to pay for Sarah's computer, & all sales go directly to support two disabled artists & our art! To go with this exclusive masto-first reveal, the first seven friends to order will receive an exclusive free gift–a second, never-ever-for-sale companion A3 poster print!
#introductions Hi, I'm James–UK #illustrator #mentalhealth struggler #zine fan+ #crab enthusiast. I like noodle soup, I have a broad+extremely trivial knowledge base. @Damage is my primary partner+carer!
Most of my life has been thrown off the standard course by being bedbound for years after I was diagnosed w/severe #CFSME @ 14. I'm better but in the midst of a long #relapse after getting a degree.
Please support my art+writing here! https://www.ko-fi.com/jallandale

So over the holidays I drew up 12 different illustrations for all patrons on Patreon (The ones below are just a sample).
Working on these almost daily really helped me out of a winter drawing rut, and then finishing the project and then compiling all of them into a printable calendar for 2022 made me feel really accomplished.
I hope to make many more things in this new year. I hope to reclaim that love of creating that I almost lost at the start of 2020. 🌟
if ordering physical xmas presents + spending money is stressful, may I suggest gifting my (free!) procreate brush sets to your artistic loved ones
(NOTE: they only work on Procreate!)
For young activists such as Firhaana Bulbulia, founder of the Barbados Muslim Association, British colonialism and slavery lie behind the island's modern inequalities.
"The wealth gap, the ability to own land, and even access to loans from banks all have a lot to do with structures built out of being ruled by Britain," Bulbulia, 26, said.
