I don’t post a whole lot of Texas selfies bc I mostly spend my time looking at the computer or tv like this
One time I was riding the metro by myself at night. I was glad that I made it back to my stop without incident.
As I rode the escalator up, I made sure to stare straight ahead and not make eye contact with anyone.
I vaguely heard some sort of “hello, how are you doing” behind me. As it was behind me, and I had not made eye contact with anyone, I kept staring forward.
The man pushed his way in front of me and looked me dead in the eye, yelling and cussing about how I was a “stuck up California bitch” and he was “just trying to say hello” and “fucking bitches think they’re too good for anyone else” not like back in the South “where people had manners.”
I had a brief thought of telling him that he was a fucking idiot because how was I supposed to know he was talking to me from behind when we hadn’t even made eye contact?
Of course, I didn’t. He was already far too aggressive without me even batting an eyelash.
And he was already angrily moving ahead of me.
And I was scared that he would follow me home.
I made sure to stay in the well-lit area until I was sure which direction he’d gone, and I walked the longer way home to avoid going the same direction.
Well this is fucking surreal(via kendrawcandraw)
HAHA one of my friends gave this to me in high school
I see it on social media all the time. Someone posts art that they did not create, and below the illustration write; "credit to the owner", or makes an amv containing art, with no links or names to the original artists.
This is a really shitty thing to do and let me tell you why.
I work fulltime as a freelance artist. It’s really hard work, especially if you’re just starting out like I am (been doing it for a little more than a year).
You have to constantly share your art and advertise yourself to the world. Hunt work wherever you think you can find it.
There’s a lot of artists out there competing for work, and it’s a constant battle.
One of the most important things for a working artist is to be seen.
Getting an audience, getting people to share your art or talk about it. If the right people see your art, it could lead to work.
So if you post work by an artist, make sure to credit properly! Link to the artists dA/tumblr/blog/whatever. Zerochan and weheartis are not sources!
If you don’t know who made the art, look for the source! There’s a lot of different ways to do this!
If you still can’t find the original art, simply don’t post it.
Don’t. Post. It.
You might just want something ‘pretty’ to have on your blog, and you just “found the art on google!”, but don’t be lazy.
Look for the source and credit the hard work of the artist.
Not adding credit when posting other peoples art is robbing an artist of future work. As dramatic as it sounds, you’re killing the artist.
In October I will be running a 5K race for an amazing cause, and I would love it if you could donate a few dollars on my behalf!
Homeboy Industries is a non-profit organization that provides support for former gang members and formerly incarcerated individuals seeking legal help, employment, tattoo removal, mental health services and mentoring. It helps hundreds of men and women every single month get the services and encouragement they need to move forward, and serves a community that is in dire need of support, affirmation and solidarity.
I am very excited and thankful to participate in this run. I understand that you may be bombarded with fundraisers now, and I completely understand if you are unable to donate. But if you do have the means and the inclination, your donation will be greatly appreciated! My goal is to reach $300 by October 18th which is the day of the run, and hopefully I can make that happen with your help!
If you donate at least $15 to my run in the homeboy 5K, I will send you a signed 8.5 x 11 Fringe photo or a signed print of my artwork. Just send me an ask or fanmail with the name you donated under, your request for either photo or art (pls, no requests for specific pieces), and your mailing address! Thanks for your help! - Jasika
