Hello, I haven't written in a long time but right now is urgent. My father (as you may know) is verbally abusive and he had been arguing non stop with my mother, and he threatened to take her phone away which has very important phone numbers, like her doctors for her Anemia and her psychiatrist and her mother and sister. She told my father to wait while she wrote the numbers down and after a while he got impatient and forcefully yanked the phone out of her hand. It got bad, I told the police and my father was arrested.
I am very frightened and shaken up, so much happened in the past 24 hours. We're stuck in this house with his mother (my grandma) and she apologized for his behavior because she didn't know how bad he was. There was a bruise on my mother's hand where he grabbed her
. The police were very kind to us and tried to find a shelter we can go to but apparently they're all too full for 3 kids and their mother. So, my mother and I have talked and decided we need to just gather as much money as we can, and get out. My mother is going to go back to work now that my dad isn't in the house to harass us (he is forbid from coming within 100ft of us). My job recently ended because it was only for a duration of the school year (I worked with children). I'm going to have the same job during the summer but I still want to find a job if I can now.
I do not know if my father will cut off our internet service, cable, cell phones, everything. He has threatened to, but this is my grandmother's house too. If I don't have Wifi, I'll still find a way to get on here and keep in touch and upload art, I have my friend's houses and school especially. So please don't be worried about that.
As always, my commissions are open and I would appreciate very much if you could spread the word about my situation and emergency commissions, or if you would like to commission me yourself. Here is the link
WHAT I WILL / WILL NOT DRAW
I will not draw...
Extremely sexual content
Steampunk/ highly mechanical art
Hateful artwork (racist, homophobic, etc.)
Don't be discouraged! Ask me if you're still wondering if I can draw what you'd like to commission. I might be able to even if it's on that list, it just depends on how extreme/difficult it is. I would turn down a commission if I feel like I can't make it worth your money.

I cannot thank you all enough for the help I've received. Thank you all so much with all my heart. I am sorry to keep telling you all about this. I'm so sorry to burden you guys with all this. I just have no other options. I need to take as many commissions as I can. Although we will receive child support and my mom will have a minimum wage job, things will be a bit tough.
