but in reality i do think there is a line between being nit picky about art and actual criticism of harmful things in it. but it’s very hard to distinguish sometimes because sometimes there are pieces like Miss Saigon that are easily recognizable as harmful, but then you look at pieces like The King and I that are clearly written from a white american perspective yet still creates meaningful conversation all these years later. and it’s interesting to me where we draw those lines, because I think it’s important we do. but i also think that some art is inherently problematic but im not sure if that means that the art isn’t worth examining? idk am i making sense? bc idk if i am
I've stop producing a lot of Aphmau fanart because of all the stealing/reposting/retracing I was getting. I mean, I'm not that upset. I keep most of my drawing to myself now but now, whenever I post any art I start worrying about it getting stolen. Some of that art thieves can be understanding but others just flat out ignore you. It's really annoying and discouraging when it happens.
