HOPEBIRD SUPPORTS THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE
Sorry for being a little late with this, hopebirds, but I decided to do a little post about this challenge that’s been going around - and why it’s a really good thing!
For those of you who don’t know, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosi) / Lou Gehrig’s Disease / Motor  Neurone Disease is a very, very unpleasant condition called a neurodegenerative disease - which basically means your body starts attacking itself and your muscles just give up. It’s terminal, and unfortunately a lot of patients won’t live many years past diagnosis. Imagine what it’s like to lose function so that you can’t pick up a fork, walk, and eventually, can’t even breathe. Yeah. It sucks.
So what does this have to do with having buckets of ice thrown on you?!

Here’s the thing. It’s not hugely known about. And because it’s a considerably small number compared to say, cancer, a lot of companies don’t see the point in putting money towards a cure. It deserves attention. The ice bucket challenge started a long time ago but only recently has it gotten going with ALS. The initial challenge was you’d get tagged and have 24 hours to throw a bucket of ice on your head, OR donate $100!
But really, where’s the fun in that?Most people now are doing both!
Celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Gullermo Del Toro, even youtubers like Markiplier are doing this challenge and donating huge sums of money! Even a little helps, every $10 or $5 from someone just posting it on facebook makes a change.

Since the Ice Bucket Challenge has really kicked off, there’s been a dramatic uprising in the donations to charities for ALS! It’s suggested at least $40 MILLION has been raised due to this alone, which is AMAZING!
And this is why HopeBird supports the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Please stop acting like this is a stupid thing. If you take part - well done! - and if you watch quietly and donate - thank you.
But the most important thing is, if you watch, and you spread the word. Let people understand that it’s something to be discussed. That everyone with a terrible condition deserves the chance to get better.
Don’t let anyone convince you that the ice bucket challenge isn’t worth your time.

This is a present for alienfirst, for her drift and hivemind character, Archimedes. I adore Archimedes’ design and have tried to draw her so so many times before, without luck, so I’m… kinda stunned that this came out so well. I haven’t had any urge to draw lately and decided to try something new … and this happened. So uh… HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
Alienfirst is AMAZING and deserves ALL OF YOUR FOLLOWS. 
(Also please fullview it.)
As for why she’s holding a fish? … I have no idea. O_o

Archimedes! Totally unexpected Archimedes art in my dash not drawn by me? BEST. And I am in such a mood for anything having to do with her right now, so there is such a dumb grin on my face, you have no idea. Thank you so so much!

aaaah I’m so glad you like it!! >w<

Please fullview for details! I know it&#8217;s been a long time since I posted anything, and I&#8217;m sorry. This is &#8230; kinda for alienfirst's drift and hivemind verse? Just a kaiju design. I started with a rat, threw in some birb and some horse&#8230; got soooomewhat carried away. Also chucked in a little Slattern &#8230; I have no idea who this girlie is. She's big enough that a human can sit comfortably in that double shoulder groove, the bigger spine as a backrest. So a six foot human would probably come up to about just higher than her tummy? I dunno.
&#8230; Just sayin&#8217;. I hope you like it!
(gotta think of a name&#8230;)

These are just some examples of some professional work I’ve done lately. Apologies for the watermarks, and reduced quality, but I’m protecting my work as well as my customer. I just thought I aught to show you guys what I’ve been doing recently. Exciting stuff :)
