Hello friends,

Yesterday morning, my father passed away very unexpectedly. I was visiting my home at the time. I was very close to him.
My life will start change in so many ways, now that I've lost but the way that it will start to hurt us first when we need some time to mourn is that money will run out. My father supported all of us because he had a very good job, and he was planning on working for a few more years. A lot of supporting myself and my family will fall to me now, but my brother and I are still full time students, and we cannot get jobs yet. The price of living in Boston is very high, and I only have rent money saved up for five more months in my apartment. My program at school lasts longer than that, and this is all very scary for me. I feel terrible asking for money at a time like this, but I know that keeping our life steady and being able to pay bills and afford meals is important.
It would give me some comfort if anyone could contribute to my Patreon:
If you sign up for rewards, you will of course get cute drawings from me as thanks, on the schedule listed there. Even a dollar will help us, if you can contribute that. Donations would be most appreciated. I want to make things less scary for my family as we figure out what to do now. (edit: Some people have asked for my paypal instead, and the email is
Once again, I feel bad for sticking this plug for money in here but we're going to be in financial trouble soon and I'm just trying to be as logical and helpful about this transition as I can be.

I truly appreciate all of your comments and well wishes for my family.

Thank you,

edit: thank you so much for the support I've received so far. I'm really just so touched. I am so thankful to be a part of this community.

one other small note: as much as I appreciate the fact that some people are trying to support me with commissions, I'm unable to take any right now--if I had the time to spare of course I would love to (and I would also be trying to take a job as well)--my goal in the short term is to finish my education, as my family would want for me to do; I only have one more semester. When I am able to take commissions again I will certainly let everyone know.
