For those who know me, you know that I've always had difficulties charging for the things that I do. I always believed that creating and making comes from the heart and that the payoff would be seeing how appreciative others are for your work and effort. However, living in this capitalistic society I know that's not how things work. As I continue growing , I understand that the work we do as (queer, undocumented, trans, people of color/non white) artists in the movement is important and should be valued. So, if you value the work that I do and would like to support me as I visually decolonize my way through the world, I would be infinitely grateful and I'll happily take you along for the ride.
 
Secondly, I'm looking to make some changes in my life by the end of this year which include a big move. At this point, any little bit of financial support will help. 

And lastly, I'm starting to save up for my top surgery. I'm not a place where I can make this a priority just yet- too many factors still need to be considered, but this is something that's very important to me and my growth. I'll be setting aside a fund for this and saving up until I'm ready.

So, I humbly ask for your support at any capacity. I'll do my best to tangibly show my gratitude through little gifts you'll receive in the mail. That's my way of saying "thank you for caring and thank you for helping me survive." 

Siempre en la lucha hasta la victoria y la liberación-

Pledge $8 or more per month
only 32 left
Yay! If you pledge $8 a month, I'll send you two freebie stickers in the mail. For every month you pledge, you'll get two new freebie stickers and maybe some other things I decide to throw in. These stickers are limited release (only 40 of each!) so you'll be one of the few to have them. The plan is to print all 365 portraits of badass folks of color and make them into stickers- so if you keep on pledging, I'll keep on sending you little bits of my heart for your loving support and contribution.
Pledge $35 or more per month
Yay! If you pledge $35 a month, I'll send you two freebie stickers AND a 12"x12" print from my POC Power series. For every month you pledge $35, you'll receive two new stickers and one new print. Prep your walls for a burst of POC Power!
Goals
$7 of $250 per month
I'm doing what I can to move to NY! I make my living off of my art but it's not enough to make a living wage... and taking out loans isn't a possibility. My goal is to save up $10,000 by Dec 2015 to facilitate my move. Once I get settled, the plan is to go back to school and get my masters at the New School for Public Engagement in NYC. Baby steps. If you can help with even just a little bit, the impact will be huge.
