Since there was so many people that have talked to me, it’s rather hard to remember but luckily the image on your tumblr page does make me remember. I do appreciate the compliment but I don’t have many methods of communication unfortunately.
Although, I will inform you that I will be attending the AZ Furcon taking place at October 31 to November 2 this year.
Dawww thanks >w<
Though that was me on Day 1! Wish someone showed me the day on or before the con ended as I had a some Umbreon pins/buttons on me placed where normally the pin you’d see on Sebastian from Black Butler would be!

Poor people stay poor because other artists have allowed the industry to degrade to a level that people drastically undervalue art. In graphic arts, an independent artist typically makes below minimum wage. So many people take advantage of starting out and struggling artists, that they offer “exposure” as compensation. Or a hideously low rate. I have had people offer to pay me just $5/page for color work. And they saw nothing wrong with this offer. This is for something that I typically spend 4-6 hours per page on. And there are artists out there so desperate for ANY money, they will accept those offers. And thus perpetuate the idea that this is okay.
No, poor people aren’t poor because they take art degrees. They’re poor because there are entitled assholes who take advantage of them so they can turn a bigger profit.
Art is everywhere. Try to imagine a world without it. Without graphics. Without font design. Without logos. Everything done in the same, bland typefaces, with no images and no sense of color. Artists are more than people who sit and make pretty pictures. They are what gives companies an image, an identity. So why are they treated like the lowest possible rank?
