How to make an artist’s self worth plummet from 10 to 0 in one sentence.
DONOTEVERTELLTHATTOANYARTISTWHOTAKESCOMMISSIONS.
DON’T DO IT.  
TELL THEM YOU CAN’T AFFORD THE PRICE.  TELL THEM YOU’LL HAVE TO SEEK FOR AN OTHER ARTIST AS YOU CAN NOT AFFORD THE PRICE.
EVEN IF IT ISN’T TRUE.
LIE SO YOU WON’T SHOW HOW MUCH OF A JERK YOU ARE.
AND MOST OF ALLDO NOT PROMOTE AN OTHER ARTIST BECAUSE THEIR ART IS CHEAPER.
I make a living from art.  I struggle to make a living from art.  With the prices I currently have, I’m LUCKY if at the end of the week I’ve managed to make as much as I would with a minimum wage.  Spoiler: it almost NEVER happens.
AND IN THAT CASE, IT’S EVEN WORSE.  I LET THEM LOOK AT MY PRICE BEFORE TELLING THEM THE FINAL PRICE.  I THOUGHT THEY WERE OK WITH THE PRICES, AND THAT THEY ONLY WANTED CONFIRMATION, AND THAT’S WHAT I GET AFTER I GIVE THEM THAT PRICE.
WHAT I GET IS: Yeah your work isn’t worth it.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I WON’T SHOW YOUR NAME, BECAUSE I’M A DECENT HUMAN BEING, AND I WON’T SHOW THE ARTIST’S NAME.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
FUCK YOU.
I’m not doing any work today.  I don’t feel like I can do it.

It happens to writers as well.  There’s a vicious shame culture associated with being any kind of professional artist/creator.  Sure, I do this because I love it.  But you know what else I love?  Paying my rent.  Buying food.  Having electricity.  Those things are pretty awesome too.  If I give away my work, I don’t have the money to do any of that, so I’ll instead be spending the time I should be writing, creating, painting, etc. WORKING a shitty job that pays the bills but doesn’t leave me time to do what I love.


"Sorry but I could get 3 of those at Walmart for what you want for just one."
Oh I’ve been here. I’ve been that artist and hearing that just makes you want to curl into the fetal position and whither.

I want to state this as clearly as possible and hope that no one misunderstands my message.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU LIKE, WHAT YOU POST, WHAT OPINIONS YOU HOLD, THERE IS SOME DOUCHE-BAG ON TUMBLR (OR WHATEVER SOCIAL MEDIA SITE YOU PREFER TO USE) WHO WILL GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT LEFT ON THE PRISTINE LAWN OF THE QUEEN FOR LIKING, POSTING, OR BELIEVING IT.

Nothing is sacred or safe from these anonymous wankers.  There are only two options when it comes to dealing with them. 

Firstly, you slowly let them chip away at the various things you feel allowed to post, believe, like, etc. You can stifle your creative expression and attempt to cater to one d-bag after another until you no longer know what you authentically believe or enjoy.  At this point, it seems that they send a probe that moves into your anus and makes you one of them, ensuring the survival of the species.

Your other option is to post whatever you want, believe what feels right to you, and enjoy whatever makes you happy (as long as you’re not hurting anyone else, of course.)  When these anonymous shit slingers show up to smear their feces on your posts, you roll your eyes and carry on with what you were doing.  Research shows that if you don’t respond to their crap, they bag it up and go away.

The choice is yours.

HATERS GONNA HATE. JUST DO YOU AND LET THEM WANK IN A CORNER ALONE.

When Jacob meets Brodie, it’s loathing at first sight.  The young man is everything that Jacob isn’t, and he can’t believe he is being forced to work with him for the sake of his floundering TV show ratings.  Jacob has been drinking and screwing his way through life, carefully avoiding dealing with anything real – whether it be relationships or hunting ghosts.  But now that Brodie is here, everything has to change.  The boy attracts everything that is bad for him.  Ghouls, demons, and Jacob Kruez himself.

Avengers Tarot by juliacross/菊叔

Gorgeous! Shame this is all she’s done - at least all that’s in her account.. tho there is some other very pretty work. Annoying that you have to join pixiv, which is basically beyond irritating to navigate.

I am not feeling well today.  Last night I was rather sick to my stomach and had a fever for at least a short while. I didn’t wake until 1 pm, and I’m still kind of drained.

I’ll see you all tomorrow morning, before I see my parents.

Sorry you feel so lousy, love. *HUG*

I hope you feel better after some rest. Do make sure you’re taking care of yourself while taking care of everyone else, okay?

today in religion we were talking about angels and our religion teacher said whoever can name the most angels gets five extra credit points on the test and all these kids tried and they only named like two but when I went I named nine and my teacher started to cry because she thought I was this huge religion and angel lover when really I just know the angels names from evangelion

This lady came thru my line today with a ton of vegetables and it took me a second to recognize the one. I was like “oh yeah, leeks!”

As I’m bagging them I say “what’s funny is that I only know what leeks look like from watching anime” and the old lady looks at me like I’m crazy.

lol
