Reminder that feminine men are great.


It's okay to make art for yourself

You don't have to making a living off of it, much less sell a single work

You don't have to post it online for the world to see

You don't have to show your mom no matter how much she insists 

It can stay in your sketch book, in your program files, in your room where no one else will see it

Your art doesn't have to be available to other people for it to be worth creating

bro im kinda tired of people trying to get me to commodify my art skill,,,

just bc im good at something doesn't mean i want to make it my living

i love painting and other arts for the process, i love doing it itself, the end result is only a bounus

how does that fit in with consumers who only want the end result,

i like to draw my ocs bc i love them, i dont want to draw other peoples ocs for money

my painting professor tried to convince me to change my major ;))

but like im not a chem major bc i dont think i can make money off of art, im not an art major bc i dont /want/ to make money of my art

This exactly! I realized this (though not fully) back in highschool when I was first trying to monetize my art. This will make for the worst goddamn career. All the time people were constantly asking me “why not go to art school” because buddy boy, moneys tough in that industry as it is and if I’m dependent on it for my income, I will lose my entire mind. 

The whole “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” conventional wisdom is only true if all the joy and passion doesn’t get immediately ripped out of it from making what you love to do a commodity. 

(Here’s a readmore because I get rambly and maybe a little off topic? But thats on brand for me so..... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tl;dr - big same, you’re absolutely 100% right

Its given me such a toxic mentality to. So much did I want to make a least just a little side cash with it, but the grind is brutal. I already have mental instabilities as it is, and to make awful one of the few things I was able to become proficient at? God no. 

There’s literally been one (1) solution I’ve found to this conundrum and its to become a content creater. Suddenly what you’re selling is not your skills, but your creativity, your ideas. Your selling your personality. 

Thankfully most of the work that goes into it is marketting on social media (that most of us grew up on anyway), being active with a community and such. But even that is made so much easier because you’re talking about yourself and your ideas. It’s a driving force instead of a hindering one. 

Of course it isn’t for all. Im slowly evaluating it myself because its been a little bit of a runaway dream of mine for a few years now. Its still work putting yourself out there and doing the work that you want to do. But its a compromise. It still sacrafices the process a bit. You still have to be a little bit output minded. You can’t not produce art (you’re merely controling the means of production, not stopping it).

And this still all banks on if you procure a following, which is a mixture of the appeal your content has and honestly? Luck. 

Even in the end, you’re still turning a passion into a commodity. It’s still going to suck. It’s still based on toxic ideals that put money over human experience and life. It completely overlooks the art creation process (I cant even think of a good way to try and monetize this outside of blogging)). Its harmful. It stiffles artists and their creativity. It’s capitalism trying to exhaust the poor so that they can never do anything productive like change the system entrapping them. It’s bullshit.

babushka -

what if waterfall etiquette for #dni posts, is it ok to like them or should you ignore them completely

U can just write "do not like" in ur tags, or "ok to like"

this looks amazing! it's also really impressive that you painted it on clothing!! your color choices really work well together, and i absolutely love the shading you've done on the clouds. i can especially appreciate that you chose to paint the moon with a slightly yellow color, it looks amazing with the dark blue sky!
