Hello followers! So Announcement <3
It hasn’t even been 6 months after my Grandpa (november 2012) my grandma (december 2012) and my aunt (jan 2013) passed away and then my cousin whom i grew up with and looked up to passed away this month may 8th.
I loved these people dearly, and I just need time to myself to heal. I definitely have not forgotten about this blog i’m just taking a needed break now that my semster is over.
Not to mention the vile things that have been happening on my dashboard and personal things with my parents, money, and school. It’s been a tough last year and this year.
I love y’all and thank you for all the love and support that you give me through words.
“Now, this may seem strange from someone who writes about pretty dresses (mostly) every day, but: You Don't Have to Be Pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female". I'm not saying that you SHOULDN'T be pretty if you want to. (You don't owe UN-prettiness to feminism, in other words.) Pretty is pleasant, and fun, and satisfying, and makes people smile, often even at you. But in the hierarchy of importance, pretty stands several rungs down from happy, is way below healthy, and if done as a penance, or an obligation, can be so far away from independent that you may have to squint really hard to see it in the haze. But what does you-don't-have-to-be-pretty mean in practical, everyday terms? It means that you don't have to apologize for wearing things that are held to be "unflattering" or "unfashionable" -- especially if, in fact, they make you happy on some level deeper than just being pretty does. So what if your favorite color isn't a "good" color on you? So what if you are "too fat" (by some arbitrary measure) for a sleeveless top? If you are clean, are covered enough to avoid a citation for public indecency, and have bandaged any open wounds, you can wear any color or style you please, if it makes you happy. ”—Erin McKean
I just wanted to say thank you
You guys are really amazing.
I am really blown away by the support and wow.
Thank you guys so much. All these kind words, signal boosts and commissions it’s been such a big support and I’m really speechless at the moment.
I still have a couple emails and messages I need to answer and I will get to them as soon as possible. I’ve been working on these commissions all day and I’m just
I’M JUST FLOORED. hrghhhgh
thank you so much!
A few people have pointed out that there haven’t been many women artists recently, which is true. The vast majority of you request male painters, and I get maybe 1 or 2 female artist requests for every 40 male ones. So, I’m making an executive decision that today will be an Artemisia Gentileschi day. I don’t want to lump female artists into one day, since I wouldn’t normally do that with males, so today I’ll feature Gentileschi and start mixing in other women artists a little more frequently.
Also, a quick note: It’d be really helpful that, if you want an artist, you submit only one person as a request, and send in separate asks for other individual artists. It helps me keep things a little more organized in terms of posting asks with the artist of the day.
