We are barely halfway to our Thanksgiving goal of $3500! Please spread the word!
Hey guys.. I know some people might be tired of this, and we didn’t make our Thanksgiving goal, but I’m going to blog this again because even though I know it’ll never reach anything like $5k, we still need a few hundred more to cover the plane tickets, at the very least. So if you can spread the word, or help in any way, Alex and I really appreciate it <3
I don’t care how much you hate someone on the internet — you don’t threaten to harm them, on or offline, you don’t stalk and threaten their partners, you don’t threaten their animals, you don’t threaten them.
It’s really incredible how anyone thinks this is justified behavior.
It’s incredible that people expect artists, creatives, writers, to just lay down like a doormat and take everyone’s bullshit without standing up for themselves. It’s incredible that people think it’s rude, brash, blunt, or cruel when these people stand up for themselves.
It’s incredible the amount of people who think that being stalked in person is something that you should just brush off or ignore.
It doesn’t matter what a harassers job is — if they’re harassing, in person, and taking internet arguments offline and - again - in person, it does not matter what their profession is, behaving like that is really childish, really scary, and really unforgivable. It doesn’t matter if they’re going to lose their job: their actions lead to that result, and they need to deal with that consequence.
And for you to blame the victim of harassment, no matter how much you like or dislike them, is really gross behavior.
Yeah, I’m going to talk about it here. This is a fast growing trend perpetuated by absolute cowards. No one should have to put up with this childish crap.
It’s still quite sore but it hasn’t stopped me from working which is basically all that’s important, haha!
It’s just like a regular Wacom tablet. When it twisted in half it brought a lot of circuitry with it so unfortunately it is not repairable :( the tip and eraser got lost/stuck inside the plastic shell, too.
Really excited to talk about art theft and theft by omission (like reposting unsourced art) with Rachel Dukes on Webcast Beacon this weekend.. I’ll make sure and share the podcast episode when it goes live!
This topic has really been under my skin for the past few weeks so I’m thrilled to get a chance to discuss it.
Hey all, I reduced the price of my MLP buttons from $3 to only $1/each!
Mane Six buttons are all buy one get one free for a limited time so nab a matching set for you and your special somepony!
I’m really sorry to hear about your injury. I really hope that every day you recover some more. Please take care of yourself!!!
I.. really feel you there, anon.
For me, “art block” happens for two reasons. Because, one, I am expecting out of myself more then I can currently give, and two, because I’m not letting myself be stagnant.
You don’t always have to be drawing. You don’t. Every artist I know has a period of time where they just don’t want to pick up their sketchbook. For some people it’s 10 minutes and for others it’s four weeks. I come home every night and sit down with my sketchbook in my lap from 7:30 until I pass out at midnight, and half the time its just sitting there open and I am getting more and more frustrated because nothing worthwhile is coming out of my “stupid, mediocre hand” (words I usually tell myself). And I realize, often much later, that it is totally okay to come home and not draw sometimes.
Let yourself breathe. Play some video games for a while. Bake cookies. Watch five hours of cartoons and answer questions on tumblr (yo). And please, please try and be forgiving to yourself, okay?
