That’s right. I don’t want to draw people of colour. Why? I don’t find them aesthetically pleasing. And no, that doesn’t make me racist. I have nothing against people of colour. I don’t have a problem with them. Some of my best friends are people of colour, and I don’t think any less of them for that.
I just don’t find poc attractive. Kinda like I don’t find big noses or buck teeth attractive. Or curly hair, or bushy eyebrows, or super thin lips, or certain face shapes. Or a lot of Freckles. Or really huge butts. Or ginormous boobs.
I like to draw things that I find attractive or interesting, so that’s what I’ll draw. If it doesn’t fit into what I think is attractive or interesting, I tend not to draw it.
And I don’t have to. So all you “BAH YOU DON’T DRAW POC! YOU RACIST!” people need to stfu. People can draw whatever the fuck they want, and you can’t force them to draw something they don’t want to. They might be racist, they might not. But it doesn’t matter. We all have free will.

you’re fucking kidding me, right
NOT only is this incredibly racist on behalf of the OP< But it just shows what a piss poor artist they are.
Only drawing stereotypically pretty white people (most likely women) Is one of the quickest ways to fall into a rut and be unable to draw anything else with any substance.
*$9 because the texture abuse raises the price by two dollars.
Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on art that you’d like to look at?

if this picture took less than an hour to draw, $7 is about the bare minimum level of reasonable compensation. if it took the artist any longer than that, they are being underpaid for the amount of time they spent.
why are people constantly fucking bitching and crying about artists getting paid “too much” for their skilled labor, while nobody ever pitches a fit about the fact you can make $8.81 an hour standing in front of a door and saying hello to people
do people even have any concept of how little minimum wage actually is? even a full time minimum wage job is going to get you 1200-1500 dollars a month tops, and most positions that hire at minimum wage are going to be part time to avoid having to actually give you any benefits like health insurance (and freelance artists still have to pay for their own health insurance even when they’re working well over 40 hours a week, which is exorbitantly fucking expensive to buy individually). go look at craigslist for the prices of renting apartments in your area and see how comfortable a life you’ll have working 8 dollars an hour when you factor in the prices of food, transportation, taxes, the out-of-pocket medical bills you’ll have to pay, clothes, etc.. even if you cram yourself into apartment with a billion other people it can be hard
nobody ever argues that walmart greeters don’t deserve to make the bare minimum living wage for the work that they do because for some reason people believe training an ability for your whole fucking life and then spending countless hours creating individualized pieces to the specification of your commissioners is easier and of less value to society than saying hello to people who walk into a walmart
it’s fucking ILLEGAL to pay a walmart greeter 7 dollars for an hour of work, and yet people will sneer at an artist who doesn’t want to work at a $2/hr wage
i don’t care if an artist is hawking terrible weeaboo pictures of his fucking shitty naruto OCs rubbing their massive inflated lactating jugs all over each other, he is entitled to set his price at the minimum wage. you don’t have to buy art that you don’t like, but getting indignant over an artist expecting the most basic grade of compensation for the time spent makes you the worst kind of garbage shit trash
So not an actual living breathing Corgi, but it’s too fantastic not to share. My new friend bought me this keychain for an early Christmas present. She said that since I can’t have my Corgi with me at college, I could have this to carry around with me instead. I must say, they did a fantastic job with the Corgi charm. Very lifelike. Still not as good as having the real thing, but it’ll do :)
I have this, and the corgi charm broke off! She now sits next to Will’s glass St. Bernard dog and represents the actual size difference between our real dogs, just scaled down a lot lol.
It happened this morning when I was talking about The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.
I went to the Peggy Guggenheim in Venice with my parents once.
My dad thought the exaggerated painting of a KKK raid on a Black neighborhood was the Arizona desert filled with white teepees :|

PRAISE THE LAWRD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
………..This isn’t even close to being funny to me. There are a ton of people who use wheelchairs due to chronic illness. Using a wheelchair isn’t always only solely about the lack of functioning of your legs or an injury/issue with the spinal cord.
It can be about the horrific symptoms of many illnesses including: dizziness, muscle spasms, severe muscle pain, issues with the central nervous system…the list goes on.
When I was at my sickest I have to take extreme measures just to be able to shop.
This is not cute.
Can you please explain to me how a white person getting up to reach an alcohol bottle is offensive to you?
You have got to be kidding me.
I immediately unfollowed you after this. Wow. Done. I hope the folks who follow me see this.
I’m not engaging in anymore conversation with you. Pathetic.
Can’t believe y’all run a community and sell t-shirts stating Decolonize your mind.
What the fuck…
You are being ignorantly ableist op. Thats whats offensive.
what a sack of shit. a friend of mine with cerebral palsy used to get fucked with constantly for standing up or even moving her legs when she was using her chair. Great way to create problems for actual human beings, op.
I agree with all of the comments on this.
Way to shit on people who need wheelchairs, OP.
Kiyoshi Kuromiya was a Japanese-American who did a lot of amazing things.
To protest of the use of napalm in Vietnam in 1968, he announced that a dog would be burned alive in front of the University of Pennsylvania’s Van Pelt Library. Thousands turned up to protest, only to find a message from Kuromiya: “Congratulations on your anti-napalm protest. You saved the life of a dog. Now, how about saving the lives of tens of thousands of people in Vietnam.”
