Drawing things out makes me feel a little better
Sorry for the long rant ^^;
Some people don’t feel artists deserve compensation seeing as it’s not as “essential” as, say, doctors or plumbers….Of course, then there are those who think that artists don’t even deserve recognition, let alone payment, so they take away artist sources and comments, thinking that artists live off of the euphoria of drawing alone (and of course if we complain about it, we’re being selfish bitches or spoiled brats).
Yes, recognition is amazing, but we also don’t want to work for free (unless it’s something you just REALLY want to do of course and isn’t looking to buy food with recognition coupons). There are plenty of great companies and people who hire artists, and these hired paid artists get plenty of recognition.
Please note: I don’t mean to say you shouldn’t ever draw for anyone for free evar ever, but you deserve to be paid. Your art has value, and more importantly, your artistic skills have value and people should not expect it for free.
This also is pretty good/funny: Should I work for free? a flow cart
Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde is trying to replace streetlights with glow-in-the-dark trees using “the bio-luminescent qualities of jellyfish and mushrooms.” The glowing plants are created by “splicing DNA from luminescent marine bacteria to the chloroplast genome of a common houseplant, so the stem and leaves emit a faint light similar to that produced by fireflies and jellyfish.”

Meet the World’s Smallest Rabbit.
Columbia Basin Pygmy Rabbits are the world’s smallest and among the rarest.
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
(I’ve reblogged some of his stuff before but here’s some more beauty)
I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.
This is groundbreaking
What is this from?
lydia actually did this
I was sure I was gonna scroll down and the last panel would just be the artist sitting there doing nothing like every other “I’m gonna do a thing” comic I’ve ever seen so suffice it to say I’m very pleasantly surprised
