This is hopebird.
Hopebird is a little project idea of mine. He’s transparent, and I’m giving permission to use this as you want as long as you don’t profit from it. 
I want you to put hopebird on your blog (either reblog this or take the image and put it on your blog) if you are a SAFE ZONE. That means anyone who has this logo on their blog will not judge you based on your race, age, religion, sexuality, ability, gender, appearance, or anything. If you see hopebird, it means that this person is open to talk to and offer you support if you need it. 

why isn’t this everywhere

I’m on my phone so idk what it looks like but I wanna use this. Could I use it as a mouse cursor if I ever figure out how to do it?

Yes :) if you do, please share the code! That’d be awesome. If you want the cleaner image file you can have it.

(Sixth time lucky?)
SO HI I DREW THE THING LIKE YOU ASKED. Y’know following that really awful doodle. Anyway I got slightly carried away but here’s a slightly-more-kaiju kaiju Newt for youuuu. I hope you like it :) I know it’s boring and stiff as most of my stuff is, but it’s sorta managed to break me out of my art funk, which is good! It’s been too long.
I was sorta trying to emulate you and Rory with your fab skills.. not sure how well I pulled it off.
(Also there is a version with dick but I’m gonna post that on rubicon-art because I am not comfortable sending you the most awful dick known to man…)

Ahhhh, no, he came out super great! I think his body structure is a bit squat and cute, which kind of matches human!Newt in my mind! I’m just really liking his design and those little ears. I also love what you did with the texturing. That’s a big reason why I adore how roryintheink draws kaiju!Newt: all those niggly texture details.
I need to find time to draw this guy! Just frickin’ cute. (And I also like the design you posted back in January on your art blog! Both that and this one are really cool quadruped ideas for a kaiju!Newt.)

If you don’t think Newt is a rat I respect your opinion but really. Super smart, quick, love snacks, have a bad reputation and offend people through no fault of their own…
this is dumb I’m sorry.

Okay, because of the overwhelmingly positive response for the list of safe zones, I’m going to start building the page up soon.

This is where you guys come in. If you’re in the situation where you’d be able to offer up a sleeping spot to someone (even if it’s just for a few days), particularly people who are trans/not straight/of colour who are unable to stay at their current place of residence, please get in touch.

My submit box is open. What I need is this -

Your location - for American’s I’ll need state and city
A name - you can use a username, I don’t need a full name.
Contact details - a phone number or email address. Both is best.
Rent - will you need a contribution from them?
Time limit - how long is the maximum someone can stay with you?
Facilities - is it a sofa or a spare room?
Pets - Can they bring any pets with them?

Please do NOT send me your address, as I’ll be putting these up in a public list. Also understand, as this list IS public, that you do take a risk by taking people into your home. Meet first, work out situations, make sure that you are aware what the situation is. We are HopeBirds, and we offer safe spaces, but if someone’s behaviour is inappropriate, do NOT let them get away with it. The same goes for anyone staying with someone! Thank you.

Please send these through the Submit box, they will not be published until I publish the list.

There is something I would like to do with HopeBird. Eventually - I know this is probably a pipe dream - but I want HopeBird to become a real Charity.

Part of what I want to do is very reliant on you HopeBirds, though. I want to create a network of Safe Places. These will be places around the world that people - be they people of colour, trans, disabled, any folken at all - can go if they are not safe.

I’m not asking you to open up your homes to random strangers. What I want to do is create a page, perhaps, with just a phone number or an email address, and a name, and your requirements. If a person is in need of help they can get in touch and you can offer up a space.

I also want to compile a list of safe hotels/B&Bs/hostels/hospitals and so on and so forth where people can go where they will not be persecuted on gender identity/mental health etc.

So, for example:

America - 

Ohio - Cincinnati

Name: Robert
Contact Number:  
1234 5678 910
Rent?: Helping around the house
Time Limit: Less than a month
Facilities: Sofa only, sorry!
Pets: No.

Ohio - Columbus

Name: Rachel
Contact Number:  
1234 5678 910
Rent?: Split food bill
Time Limit: A week, but we can discuss it
Facilities: Spare room with bed and wardrobe.
Pets: Cat or dog only.

/

UK - England
Hampshire

And like that.
Would anyone go along with this idea? Do we think it is good? If so, I’d like to start getting this set up while I can! Of course, anyone can say no - being on this list does NOT guarantee the person will take you in. Behaviour is important. These people are being gracious and offering up their spaces for you in a time of need - treat them with respect, and their homes.

HopeBird is about safe places, but people’s actions are very important. if someone’s acting horribly, you do NOT have to keep them in your home.
I also advise meeting somewhere not your/their home first. Remember, safety is key, and I cannot go and vet each of these people!

Thanks!

So, the GRAND DOUCHE CANOE (aka my father) has decided to pack his job in.

A little reminder that we are 2,000 in debt, and he house payments are about 1,500 a month, and I only earn 200-300 a month. Which of course I need at least half of for transport.

This means that we’re most likely going to become homeless.

If you can, please, PLEASE commission me. If you can’t please spread it so that someone can so that I have at least a little money put aside in case of emergency. I have somewhere I can go, but it’s a long way away from where I work, and it would only be temporary. I also have my pet rats to take care of.

Thank you.

First off you trying to prove you're a real artist sorta made me laugh but beside that point you are making people pay for your paintovers of their photos? Because rendering is not what you think it is. For shame.

I think you have a rather major misunderstanding of how commissions work. I’m not exactly pointing a gun at people’s heads, am I? If they want to pay me to render their image, they can. It’s up to them.

Remove your paintover/trace art from your commissions, you're a liar if you said you did that without photo reference because you literally traced someone elses photos to get the images you like and you want to make people pay? Knock that off and become a real artist.

Actually, as I’ve said, if people want renders they have to provide the image themselves. They have to have the copyright for it. I will NOT render something people haven’t taken themselves, because that’s illegal. 

I wasn’t going to offer them, but they’re actually up because people are requesting them. So I offer them for sale. In the meantime, I suppose I’ll just

become
