shoutout to all the other ex-gifted & talented/honor student/straight a/senior editor/star student/99th percentile/once-creative burn-outs who have, since high school, realized they are truly miniscule fish in a giant, endless ocean, criticized themselves to the point of creative paralysis, and participated in so much self-sabotage they no longer see the point of doing anything at all because they’re just going to ruin it for themselves anyway
this one’s for you
I haven’t seen this around tumblr just yet, so I wanted to put my own word out about it.
This is a fashion doll created by an illustrator that has been modeled to the standard proportions of the average 19 year old girl. She’s healthy, sporty, wears natural makeup, and GOSH DARNIT LOOK HOW POSABLE SHE’LL BE.
The project is technically fully funded now, but the more support and preorders it gets, the more influential it will be. My mom just got one for the sole purpose of keeping in the box, because best case scenario, these things become the next barbie and they’re worth big bucks later on; worst case scenario, she helped support an artist with a good cause.
Preorders aren’t outrageous at all. $25 for a first-edition doll that will NOT be sold in retail stores. Please spread the word and help get this doll known!
ugh and then there is SCHOOL
its not even as thou i know what i’m doing, i seriously dont/ i know my passions, art, theatre, medicinie and genetics, but no wait
you mean i have to pay nigh a million dollars to get a slip of paper for any of this? that no one even acknolwedges? fantastic, sign me up
i just, am not hopeful about my future u-u
to be honest, that number is coming up, 21, like a curse.
i don’t know if the statistic has been updated since, but it is still fresh in my mind
trans*people are most likely to commit suicide at 21.
it’s like i have a year to prove to myself that i’m not a wreck, mistake, foul up
NE LAST RAMBLE”
my art histroy class pisses me off since it’s very white centralized. i looked throu the text and we get 5 chapters of things besides “europoen” art (putting that in quotes because roping roman/greek stuff as well, since that is at this time considered “white”(, and then you get like…. african art, all the way at the back.
african art, which was before greek art
which chronologically should be a t the f r o nt
also some nasty people i used to know are trying to get into contact with me
update on things:
so i did get a second job, it’s 25 hrs a week, but it means that on the days i do work, i’m also working 8hrs at my first job. so basially gone all day
it’s kinda chill, i can sit there and once i get used to things time goes by p quickly, its not a bad job at all
i got ill uhhhh yeah so head cold or sneezing or maybe allergies?
money is still a huge worry but thats w everybody right
and like i posted the other day i do feel inadequate with my art… it’s never what or how i want, and just feels like nobody else cares either? like what i put into will never be returned i guess
i just end up thinking that it’s worthless & i’m worthless for trying o draw - i know my stuff isn’t great at all, but then i start sinking into the “it’s trash” mindset.
Not gonna lie, this is a purely self indulgent sketch, but…
HOW DARE YOU, STEVEN UNIVERSE
HOW DARE YOU CREATE MY PERFECT, UNATTAINABLE WIFE
MY PERFECT, STRONG, MULTI-ARMED, HUGE-HAIRED, BIG-NOSED, BIG LIPPED, STRONG LEGG’ED, and most importantly, GIANT WIFE
how could you do this to me
josuecruzart asked: Are you having doubts about your artwork?
A huge amount ): I usually do, I’m not very confident about it and I know posting it and getting it seen is the only way to get constructive criticism and friends but it still bothers me that it’s not how I’d like it. I think. I don’t really know what I dislike about my artwork… ?
I’m Nick, an aspiring freelance artist and aneurotypical trans guy trying to get his T letter without insurance or regular income (a poor, starving artist living commission-to-commission stereotype incarnate). I am losing my mind not being able to transition. My family can’t afford to help me pay for treatment either, so I don’t know where else to turn other than to the kindness of strangers.
I’m hoping to raise about $850 to cover gender assessment fees and T-related medical bills. Every dollar helps!
And for YOU GUYS— for every donation over $5, I will send you a random thank-you sketch! For donations $20 and up, send me a message along with your paypal donation with the name of your favourite character and I will send you a drawing of them comparable to the donated amount!! Donations over $100, I will draw a 3-page comic about anything you choose and worship you as a god.
PLEASE HELP NICK HE’S MY BESTIE AND HE REALLY NEEDS THIS!!!
Sounds like he needs a job. Look at the girl from the princess and the frog. She held like 8 jobs and saved all her money to buy her own damn restaurant. Stop being lazy and go get a job at mcdonalds. Bitch you could have $850 in one month. Fuck this shit.
Jesus christ, now I have to chip in a fiver just for making you take a break from sucking your own butthole long enough to type that.
