White ppl when Asian/POC roles are whitewashed: "As long as the story is good who cares? Don't be so sensitive" White ppl when a black girl is cast as a mermaid: "This is so unrealistic, mermaids don't have access to hair dye, how will she even have red hair, this feels racist"

It feels like joking about the CDC is the only way to process the seemingly absurd fact that yet another institution that is supposed to protect people has instead chosen to protect capital, effectively dissolving whatever small modicum of trust anyone might have still had for it

Honestly I wasn’t going to say anything publicly but now that Netflix Bebop has been canceled, I would just like to point out that the main issue was not Ed, or Vicious, but rather that it recreated a piece of media with defined political statements and removed every. last. one.

I keep thinking about this artist, who replied to the first comment on this drawing with a sentiment about how scared they were of their dream tiger—they must have been *so* bewildered seeing it reinterpreted around literally every corner of twitter over the past 5 days lol

I need people to focus on the real issue here: the value of creative labor, aka jobs. This is not about whether or not it qualifies as "art", whether or not it looks bad, etc. All of that is a just a distraction when we live in a world where we need to work to in order to live.

I wish more people felt comfortable admitting that they just don't like something for no good reason, rather than trying to justify their personal feelings with arguments about morals. Have the confidence to dislike that thing without pressuring everyone else to agree with you

If you work a 9-5, are broke and coming home every night to watch Netflix, you deserve to stay broke. Every night you should be coming home and selling something, creating something, learning something, etc. You should be constantly leveling yourself up. Netflix won’t do that.

Nothing crazy about the instant-upgrade you can give your art if you’re willing to marinate it in AI soup consisting of millions of images that were painstakingly crafted by hundreds of thousands of your fellow artists and then utilized without our consent. Scab behavior tbh 🤡

Lots of teachers don’t allow fanart bc they believe it can teach bad habits and they hate anime, etc, but more importantly: For-Profit Art Schools cannot use fanart of licensed characters in their promotional materials where they print student work to advertise the school 🤗

When companies and celebrities hold predatory contests like this instead of hiring professional artists, it's because their hope is to not have to pay what the art, expertise, labor, and time is actually worth. They want us to devalue our craft. Don't fall for it.

Advice I wish someone had given me when I was in my early 20’s: Most jobs require interpersonal relations, even if you’re a solo freelancer. Developing soft skills and getting along with people is often even more important than being good at drawing (or whatever your craft is)
