Where's the sketch dump I was promised 2 days ago? :P
I know! I don’t know. I… lost it? Not the sketchbook. The files. They got… smushed down to the bottom of my backpack? My digital backpack. Yes. Because this is the internet and thus permanently just kind of highschool.
BUT NO REALLY I’m seriously going to post them, probably tomorrow. Learning how to run a commercial embroidery machine is both exhausting, and really exciting. I’ve been working on all sorts of designs for screenprinted shirts and embroidered snapback hats for a personal project that I will talk about more when it is ready. Which will be at an unspecified point in the fvtvre. Unfortunately I am so excited about these designs that they’ve been pushing everything else onto the backburners… WHOOPSIE.
But tomorrow, I promise.
MAN OH MAN I’ve been real terrible about updating this thing lately.
But for reals I been real junked the math up in my brainspace lately so I’m gonna draw some shizz and slap it up on this mother soon enough DON’T YOU WORRY CHILD. Don’t you worry.
Heyyyoooo I just want to make a PSA that it’s perfectly OK for artists to reblog their own work if they want more people to see it! It’s actually perfectly OK for an artist to do anything they want to further the exposure of their artwork!
This PSA was facilitated by this ask that Sam got, and I saw Choo’s reply (‘lmao i got a bunch of asks like this saying if i was truly happy with my work i wouldn’t ‘fish for notes’ by reblogging myself’) and I just ??? I really have one question to ask the Tumblr community and it’s this:
What the hell is your problem?! What do you guys have against artists trying to get more exposure for themselves? Why do you constantly, consistently act like artists attempting to get more exposure for themselves is in line with Satan’s dark plans for the apocalypse?
Fuckin tell me because there’s a long list of stuff we are Not Allowed To Do because Attention Is Bad. Can anyone actually tell me why attention is bad for artists?? Because it’s not like trying to make any headway in the community actually relies on exposure and attention or anything hahaha nope sorry I forgot that we’re all meant to just create and share our work in the equivalent of a dark basement so someone can come and “discover” us.
No, you can’t draw fanart to get exposure (I wrote a post addressing why it’s perfectly OK to draw fanart to get popular, you can suck my butt if you disagree), you can’t reblog yourself in the hopes that more people will be exposed to your work, taking advantage of networking is wrong, yeah well guess what buddy I have news for you, you’re wrong, stop being jerkoffs about artists trying to advertise their work, thank you & goodnight.
god bless u may for being articulate and fantastic.
something for everyone to think about!
Man I swear I’m gonna post some stuff soon, I’ve just been redesigning my resume and cirriculum vitae and nobody wanna see that shit
This will get more offensive before I’m done with it. Ive been playing with hand-type in my sketchbooks a lot lately and wanted to post a little something for you all, since its been so very, very long.
