A Song for Tim Shieff

Every night in your dreams
Fish see you, Fish fear you
That is how you know you do wrong
From across the YouTubes
And screensies between us
You have come to show you are lost
When you, fast, you literally starve
Drinking piss does not recycle proteins

Once more just go plant strong
But you need to carb up and
So gains can go on and on

Veganism can touch us one time
And lasts for a lifetime
And never go back to carnism

What did the fish do to you?
One true time you knew what to do
Now there’s no I or Tim in ETHCS…

Water, fasting, however long
I believe that not eating does you harm (fasting 35 days doesn’t work bro)
Once more, is all we ask for
And get help with your gut health
Your health can go on and on

Tim-othy, there’s nothing about meat
And I know that your heart can go on
Please rethink your ethics that way
You can save many lives and your health can improve on plants

This is the music to sing along with [not my video, obviously].

Benji, the Rescued Calf

After seeing a lovely photograph of Benji on Instagram, I decided to do a painting and used it as the reference to paint from.

Benji, the 114th calf to be saved by the rescue!

Now for a little background story

Benji was rescued by Chantelle (who is@timepoorvegan). Benji was #114 of their calf program, one of the lucky ones and so he gets to live out his life to the fullest!

For most of these animals, the dairy industry causes a lot of suffering. Female cows typically become successors of their mothers and live a couple of years under the same way, in a life of exploitation. The male calves get taken to the slaughter within weeks after they are born. The dairy industry considers them to be a waste product: unable to produce milk and therefore killed for their flesh. All for profit. Cows are killed in production of dairy and this is why vegetarianism isn’t enough. We have access to so many alternatives now in 2018, so it makes no sense not to go vegan when it is unnecessary to use animals. Why is this still happening?

Here is a brilliant video by Erin Janus to explain the whole dairy industry in 5 minutes!

Jumanji, the Fennec Fox

Jumanji the Fennec Fox lives with vegan activist Sonia Sae and thrives on a vegan diet!

There has been a lot of fake news and online hate towards Sonia Sae so my hope with painting Jumanji was to bring some joy through my art.

Thank you so much for all the activism you do for the animals.
