“I don’t know why people teach kids about ‘pimples’ and ‘hormones’ and ‘armpit hair’, and refrain from telling them that if they don’t achieve their billion-dollar dreams at the age of twenty-one, there will still be much more to life. And that when you fail at your first job, it isn’t going to be the end of the world. And eventually you will realize that each person’s world is different and your only job is to figure out what your best world can be.”

Q

Anonymous asked:

Your art is so damn good it makes me want to give up drawing forever because ill never be as good as you

A

teratocybernetics:

Okay, Anon? I know this might be meant as a compliment, I’ve said similar things myself in the past and thanks for the intent behind it, buuuuut it’s seriously uncomfortable. No artist anywhere wants to be the reason someone gives up, unless they’re a great big bag of assholes.

I’m going to let you in on a thing; I could sit here and point out everything that’s terrible to me about everything I’ve ever done, even the stuff I’m mostly happy with. Point me at something I was proud of when I finished it and I probably now hate it and want to do it over. Being on the creating end, you know how your sausage is made; you know the corners you cut and the colours you got wrong, the reference you should have used but didn’t because lazy, and what you’re not great at. Almost nobody else who sees your work is looking at anything but the damn tasty sausage. Comparing yourself to others gets you nowhere (a thing that’s taken me a shameful amount of time to start taking to heart), especially when you could be learning from them.

Also! I’m thirty three. In Tumblr terms, I’m practically from the fucking Devonian period, creaking and reminiscing about swimming with trilobites. According to my mom, I’ve been at this basically since I was three. I drew on anything I could get my hands on. I drew in schoolbooks, on my desk, on my tests, whenever I was bored, and being both way above reading level and probably harboring unaddressed ADD (among other things), that was a LOT. In high school, I was uncomfortable if I didn’t have my sketchbook on me at all times, and I went to a four-year art college. In short, I’ve had an incredible amount of practice not only drawing, but at looking at things from the perspective of wanting to draw them. The concept of talent is a filthy rotten lie; all there is, is learning wherever you can and working to understand that learning, and the satisfaction when those things come together and make something awesome, thus driving you to continue doing it.

I hope this makes some of you in a better mood. Because I’m feeling quite over the day. But this helps a bit.

Pro Tip

teratocybernetics:

news-from-alex:

If a little kid draws something and you see it but can’t tell what it is don’t guess at what it is or ask “what is that” because it totally discourages them because they think it’s a bad drawing

Instead ask them if they’ll tell you about their drawing, it gives them a chance to tell you what it is and the parts of it that are important to them and you don’t make them feel bad

Holy CRAP i never thought of this.

This deserves so many reblogs.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

Someone said “Are you really so stupid to think that Africa has the same technological advances as us? If they did they would probably have clean water and not live in houses made of sticks and mud. Get over yourself and stop being so ignorant.”….. Below is a tiny collection of images of the Africa they refuse to show you..
