I try not to post anything here that isn’t art, but based on some really horrifying stuff I’ve encountered tonight, I just want to say this:
Don’t repost art of any kind without credit.
There are a lot of reasons why this is a shitty thing to do that a lot of people have more eloquently and thoughtfully articulated than I could, and I could talk about how much time goes into making a piece or art, and how I’m not currently paid to make art, but I want to eventually make my living off of my art and how posting my art online is a tool and a stepping stone in that regard, the same way it is for a lot of people, but, honestly? Just don’t do it. Don’t do it because it isn’t yours and it’s not an okay thing to do. Art doesn’t belong to you. Art doesn’t belong to the internet. Art comes from PEOPLE and it belongs to THOSE PEOPLE and those people deserve the recognition for it.
I honestly believe better of all of my followers, but I just wanted to put this out there as a reminder. Don’t do it, don’t follow people who do it. Don’t listen to any reasons anyone might have for why they don’t do it because there just isn’t any excuse.
