ho boi had a strange interaction on instagram and I’m like. Bruv. I don’t make OCs out of some social justice change the world reason, they just happen to have certain characteristics because I use art as a vehicle for many things, like giving myself a reason to do a dip into researching things people live with. Fanwork =/= real life activism, if I wanted to do activism I’d be paying mutual aids + mailing the lawmakers (which I have done previously), these drawings are just for myself and my silly little interests. I find value in learning about the circumstances other people experience, because I would like to hopefully be more understanding, and slowly unlearn a lot of the societal prejudices that very much influence my thought patterns with or without my awareness.
