I’ve been debating this back and forth, because I don’t really like to call attention to my birthday (Dec 6th), but I also occasionally get messages from people who wish they could’ve done something if they’d known.
And I’ve been thinking about this a lot in the past week. And while I love things like fan art/gift art, I think I’d like to do something a little bit different this year and maybe it’ll be a tradition, who knows.
This week in place of sending me anything, take the time, the money that you would have spent on me and spend it in service to someone in need. Maybe that means providing a warm meal to someone who otherwise wouldn’t have one this week, or sitting and listening to someone who’s stressed out. Maybe it means spending more time with your family. Maybe it means treating yourself to some well-deserved rest. Maybe it means taking old clothes, coats, or other things you don’t need and donating it to local shelters.
Sorry to make such a selfish request, but all I really want for my birthday is for each of us to treat each other a little nicer so the world can be a little brighter.
Regardless of what you choose to do, thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day!
And for those who want to do something or for you over-achievers, you can draw yourself/your OC having Strawberry Mochi with chibi!Yoko.

I know you said to go spend some attention on someone else who needs it, but birthdays are also an occasion to appreciate the person. I think your art is just swell. You brighten our world; and so it was a fortunate day for all of us when you were born!
You really made my day with the "gift" you suggested. I surely will do something to fulfill this request.
I hope that the roads of your life will take you to the most beautiful and interesting of places in the space-time continuum.
