some thoughts on the taz graphic novel

Before I get into this, I wanna say that I’m not mad at anyone, I’m just disappointed. As well as this, I don’t speak for everyone, you know? I’m just one person.

I’m also not-white. I’m mixed-race, and I, god, really hate fantasy.

I’ve never been able to get into anything in the fantasy genre, because it’s not a world I can see myself in. To get straight to the point? It’s really white. Apart from black-coded monsters, there’s really nothing for me there.

One of the reasons why The Adventure Zone is really important to me is that it made me like fantasy. Like, I went into it pretty hesitant and ready to just, give up on it, but I ended up binging the whole thing in a few days. Now, I absolutely adore it. It not only introduced me to really compelling storytelling and pushed me into making more content that I’m really happy with, it also let me be a part of an amazing group of people, and I really feel like I’ve made some good friends in the community.

Another reason why I like it so much is that there are so few real character descriptions. As someone who seeks out representation in media because it validates my experience as a human being, it was really cool to be able to actually relate to characters. And as an artist? Being able to really do whatever-the-hell I wanted because no one could tell me I was wrong? It felt really good.

This was really the first time I felt I had the freedom to make people who looked like me. What was cool, as well, is the fact that people would send me messages and tell me how they felt they were represented in my art, or how it inspired them to create their own designs, etc. I only really started seriously posting my art on the internet a year ago, and being able to instill that feeling in others was really… Nice.

Recently, I talked about how I find white character designs “boring”. A lot of people took offence, and I got a lot of anonymous messages telling me I was wrong, that I was mean, etc. I didn’t get mad or upset, because at the end of the day I know that white people don’t understand what it’s like to not be represented in media. Seeing the same white guy over and over again gets old, especially when the art featuring these white designs gets the most attention, to be honest. Coming from a world where I’m a minority, to engage in a fandom - a proposed “safe space”, (or at least a conduit to escapism) where I’m still excluded and marginalised on that basis? Kinda sucks.

Over the past week I’ve had people constantly telling me I’m not drawing things right, that I’m being over-dramatic, that I’m not being nice - people getting defensive of white character designs, when in reality, I’m not attacking anyone. I’d hate for anyone to think as much.

But it’s disheartening, is the thing.

hey guys! here is my repost. i took down the original so id appreciate if you’d reblog this version instead!


it was brought to my attention that despite my thoughts/intentions at the time, my coloring mashup of the two hams can be really harmful! there needs to be clear separation between these characters we have been given and the actual found fathers and i may have accidentally blurred the lines on that with my original post. i really hope my followers and this fandom understands that my mashup/color was misplaced in a lineup with the cast and i hope this clears things up. im truly sorry to anyone i may have hurt or misinformed!
