Dear Social Media, I am an artist, not a content creator

April 26, 2022

While making a post on a social media platform the other day, I hit a viral status. Immediately I made the move, as artists often do, to share some projects I’m working on, things for sale, places to follow me, et cetera. I always have something going on, so I’m eager to share any of the many things I’m working on. Someone commented to let me know how “foolish” I was to link these things, and how by adding links I was apparently devaluing the post somehow or making it seem like an ad. The comment irritated me, and though I should know by now not to engage with what is effectively a troll, I did engage. I replied, and they got nasty back, but the reason I had replied in the first place was because I thought it was important to make my side public to anyone that shared the same opinion. It’s very simple:

If you don’t know about Inktober, essentially it’s a drawing-a-day project meant to just keep you drawing. There’s not really any official rules to it, but some people come up with themes or prompts for things to draw each day. Personally, I just commit to ink, and draw whatever happens to come into my mind. Continue reading Inktober 2018

A look back at 2016 and 2015

December 26, 2016

Every year I like to take a look back at the works I’ve done and get an idea of what I’ve been working on, if it fits any kind of theme, and where I’m headed. Someone started organizing images such as the one below to show a month-by-month recap of some works created, and I thought it would be a fun thing to do. I’ve also completed some improvement memes to see what kind of progress I’ve made and if I’m on track to make more.
