listen i am and always will be in full support of young artists/writers working hard to develop their skills and exceed expectations, but like. don’t be a dick about it.
i was at this youth thing earlier today, and got to talking to this girl who’s a year or two younger than me and also draws. We were exchanging sketchbooks, talking about our current projects, art struggles, all that jazz. Somewhere along the line, she starts giving me a detailed list of all the people in her grade who “””can’t draw worth shit,””” stressing how hilarious it is to watch them try.
Maybe don’t do that? That’s so fucked up? Mocking people who are trying to develop a skill really isn’t funny. What makes the situation worse is that i GUARANTEE that a couple years ago, she was no better. She KNOWS what it’s like to be at their level in this certain arena, but she still makes fun of them. And that’s??? So hilariously fucked up??? Please don’t do that???
