Hey, all! :wave:

I am entered in a local photo contest to earn a free senior picture photoshoot. If I am one of three entrants who receives the most likes, I win a free session. I'm currently a high school junior and don't really have the expenses to get high quality senior photos from a professional; but I really like this photographer's work, and getting the pictures free would be amazing.

So in an effort to rally votes, I am giving away art requests to the first 5 people who click on the link below, vote for me my clicking the Facebook "like" button, and comment on this journal letting me know that you voted, and a brief summary of what you would like depicted in your request. (Don't worry about details yet, this is a time-sensitive thing, so I expect that most people who see this will want to comment quickly so to affirm their chances vs. typing a long detailed request and risking someone else commenting first.)

I will contact those first 5 people in order of commenting to discuss specifics of what they would like ^^

I will make each request using either traditional or digital media in full color. Examples include human/anthro/animal character drawings, head shots/full body/waist-up (whichever preferred), and some full scenes depending on how complex. 

If there's something you're not sure that I would draw, feel free to ask.

And anyone else who sees this journal after the 5 request spots have already been taken, please feel free to vote for the picture and comment here that you did so; I'll give llama badges to anyone else who votes for it. I would be seriously ecstatic to win these free pictures; thanks in advance for helping me try! :heart:

yesterday i wrote a love poem
to the globe on my
nightstand.

i knew then that i wanted to be
hennaed under the revolving light
of your hands, mapped out,
touched breast to breath to
neck, conquered like native homelands
because

i am always best when tethered
by man, my skin a knitted web
of his intelligent design;
an ornament, a statue
in a country i know by name.

i am a painted thing
with fluorescent teeth,
a frame stenciled by god(s)
and i have studied this atlas enough to know
my lips are meant for kissing, not speaking

i am a song best heard in the key of FEAR
i know the swallow, the turn of head,
the tremble-twitch-keep walking
sung by women in parking lots at night,
the sounds of young girls crackling like leaves
under the boots that claimed this land

i have been the muslim prayer
blinking under gas station LEDs,
kept secret in the church of a burka at 3 a.m.
praying to fucking anything
that the sun will come up just the same
for me as the father who raised me
with a voice like a flag
and hands like a rifle
and a curse pinned to his lips.

i have heard the voices
etched beneath skin and streetlights
begging to make it home
untouched. i sing their anthems
like birdsong, hoping branches
will listen when men
do not

i want to peel only by the hands of
the sun, not the eyes
pressed against my nipples
or the fingers opening
the labia of the earth

i want to sing a song in the key of humanity

i want to ask woman her name and ring it through the streets

my daughters will not be taught
to be deflowered. they will plant
these seeds.

up and out
of the globe on my nightstand,
this world in a man’s mouth,

we will all grow
literature
33 deviations
& yes, i am in love with van gogh--
not only for his best work
but also for the starless nights he spends
plotting to cut off his own ears.
because to truly love is
to know the insanity
of any great artist
and still cherish him
anyway

Climbing in rooftops is sooooooo fun. I've made it some pretty wacky places, but since youtube didn't exist when I last really tried, I didn't kill myself reaching out of my skill level
