A GoFundMe that's been up since 2016, Edson Theveninā€™s family. The Troy, NY police department took Edsonā€™s life.

One of many victims of these systemic issues. Let's do our part in trying to pay back the harm that's been done. No, money wont _fix_ the death, but it can help the family which is bereft .

Working on perspective and cutaways in an attempt to draw a pelvis. Pray for me... I'm absolutely terrible at drawing the pelvis.

I've also watched Ip Man 4 and Bloodshot this week so it's been action packed and full of awesome cinematography techniques.

@popstar @hope We are truly witnessing firsthand why "May you live in interesting times" is considered a curse...

After the protests/riots here in Central Florida, about 50 people have been arrested.

I haven't seen a single post yet for the community bail fund for central Florida, so I'm posting it: floridajc.org/bail/

They need as much help as they can get.

Just watched Equilibrium for the first time... How did I miss this movie?

If you do something racist.

1. Admit guilt.
2. Apologize (not to the nearest white person!!?!)
3. Learn how to avoid that in the future (ask politely or research! don't burdern PoC with explaining shit to you!).
4. Grow up.

I'm white, and even I get it!
*sitcom laugh track*

Lazyweb, yesterday I saw someone toot a link to an open source list of bail funds. Foolishly I did not bookmark it and now I cannot find it.

Can anyone point me in a good direction for resources on bail/legal defence funds for protesters?

Nude Figure Study 

Ok, here's my second figure study of the week. This one I redid 3x. -_- It was very difficult because:
1. I can't draw hands
2. I can't draw feet
3. How does one do foreshortening?!

Painted a lunarpunk low light rubber plant today out of boredom. It was fun to do. Might make a series of lunarpunk items for stickers.

Today's Goals:

Water greenhouse and garden boxes
Cram for final in art history
Take review quiz
Try to get 1-2 figure drawings done

Someone suggested we support individuals today, and I think that we should all start with Artist Marcia X, @ArtistMarciaX ,
who's not only taught just me a lot, but a lot of other people too.

The Go Fund Me for their PhD will be at the bottom. They are more than half way there already, and we could finish that off today, easy.

If you're curious about what kind of work they do outside of here? Check out their website
