someone could take what I wrote about porn and liking certain body types and make me out to be a horrible person. And all their friends would agree with their trolling and even worse think that they were some kind of crusader for justice instead of the pathetic troll that they are.
having a sexual preference for a certain body type doesn’t automatically make you bad person either. It just makes you a person with a preference for a certain body type.
ps Its really sad that I even feel the need to state this.
doesn’t make you a bad person. But claiming that people who like porn are bad people; explicitly or implicitly makes you seem narrow minded.
cuddlycolin said: I’m pretty sure it’s ALWAYS what you draw. How you draw never matters, just that you draw, and people caring is usually pretty inward and “selfish”, showing most interest in only the things they care about.
I don’t know, I think there are some artists who just either have a unique style that fits into the current zeitgeist or are so fucking amazing that people automatically like their shit.
But having said that people are not obligated to like my work or anyones work. People are free to like the stuff that they like. The public has no obligation to support artists either materially or spiritually unless they are getting something from that art.
But that is just my opinion.
tl;dr Its hard out there for a pimp.
I’ve been feeling like “The Kid” in Purple Rain; because people are not liking the sketches that I have been putting up. Which is totally fine by me. But on the other hand I know that if those same sketches were of fat girls more people would have liked them. But as an “artist” I feel like I need to mix it up sometimes so that I can grow. Really I’m not fishing for likes…I’m just making an observation. And that observation is…its not always how you draw…but what you draw.
Ohhh well I wasn’t trying to call you a hypocrite. I hate that shit. I just wanted to see it, is all. It takes a fuckload of courage to put a vulnerable photo of oneself on the internet, esp Tumblr. Don’t sweat it. ;) xo
I totally agree with you…I just don’t know how well that fits into my blog. I mean if I were being 100% Bill on this, this blog would be a) 18 and up b) Pretty different. I mean I’d still have art, because that is such a big part of who I am…but I’d talk a lot more about personal stuff as well.
I am very happy in my marriage. I just question if monogamy is realistic…I know of like 4 people on here that aren’t getting all their needs met in their relationships. But…But that doesn’t mean the relationship is bad. It just means that maybe someone doesn’t want to get stuffed or isn’t into some kinda sexual thing that the other person is.
Honestly I don’t know what the answer is…I do know that I hate cheaters and dudes that go to prostitutes. I think that is lame as hell.
I think that going poly has high levels of drama potential… so I’m not sure what the answer is, its more like I’m just throwing that out there.
So no I’m not looking for anything personally. I’m good.
people love creating fake drama on here in the guise of “educating people”. When you see some one doing or saying something that people might see as offensive, the worse thing that you can do is attack that person right off the top. All that does is make them defensive. And when people get defensive they close themselves off to what you are saying. So instead of making someone actually think about how they might have wrote something that could be seen as offensive, they just get angry and don’t listen. So then you get into a fight with them and guess what? Nothing good comes out of it. Unless feeling superior to someone else was your goal in the first place.
But if you are actually trying to help…they you have to let the other person open the door to you rather than try to bash that door down. That never works.
But if you want to troll people in such a way that you come out looking like a nice person…then this is definitely the way to go.
are the only kind that I like.
Someone asked Bendis :
Why can’t I get into comics
I get a ton of mail asking this exact same question so if you are reading this consider this my answer to you as well.
in my opinion the goal should not be to work for the big two companies, the goal should be to make a comic book that you feel very passionate about. if for some reason that comic book is your calling card towards other things, like working for the big two, that would be fantastic, if that is goal.
but don’t wait around for them to discover you- just made your comics. if you want to be in comics, make a comic, and you are in. it’s a sheer act of will.
almost everybody whose work you are reading has lived by this philosophy. with digital technology there is literally nothing standing in your way of creating art and distributing it. GO!
Shit I’ve been sayin’ Also I remember the days when Bendis was sitting next to David Mack and getting no love. Bendis is proof that dreams can come true and that shit changes and be careful who you write off.
