please make them worth it

I got a lot of people asking me if it’s okay if they repost my art somewhere else, and the answer will always be no. I don’t care if it’s with credit or without. There is no use to discuss it, I simply don’t want it. Some artists have no problem with it, but I am different and it’s my right as an artist to not allow it. I also added it to my describtion, so please stop asking me. I won’t change my mind about it.
If I want it to be somewhere else posted, I will do it myself. 

Thanks for your attention.

(I wrote it in the tags, but if you don’t read them I add it here as well: if you found someone reposting my art [especially on instagram] there is no need to tell me, because I can’t do anything against it, as far as I know. On tumblr it’s different but with instagram I have a lot of trouble and the reposter just don’t give a shit too often. So yeah… to keep the stress level somewhere not too high, please just don’t tell me… I know it’s meant well… but I just don’t have the time to deal with it and it’ll just make me crazy)

“Target could be my second home,” You marveled as you walked into the doors of the large store.

Pietro laughed. “Well, you do come here a lot.”

“Because I love it!” You squealed and walked to where the one-dollar section was.

With a roll of the eyes, he put his hand on your shoulder. “That, and Tony kicks us out of the base a lot.”

Shrugging, you picked up random things in the one-dollar bins. Tony does kick you two out of the base a lot, mainly because when you don’t have anything to do, you annoy someone until you are entertained and come up with something to do. He’s usually the easiest to annoy, not to mention that he gets annoyed really easily, and his reactions are typically the funniest.

You walked up to the nearest employee, doing like you and Pietro always do. “Excuse me, miss, where are the toasters?” You linked onto Pietro’s arm. “My husband is really worried about the fact that we do not have a toaster and I’m afraid he’s going to break down if he doesn’t see a toaster soon,” You told the girl who seemed to be a bit older.

She quickly directed you to where the toasters would be, and once she was out of sight, the two of you broke into a fit of laughter. “That was a good one. I’m really passionate about toasters,” He laughed. It was almost a tradition after the many times you two have been to Target recently, asking the staff random and strange questions. Sometimes he was your son, sometimes you were a random stranger, and today he was your husband. Of course, you two were only friends, which made it only funnier.

TFC Fall Graphic Challenge: Nov. 28 - Typography + Book Cover

     ↳ The original trilogy, reimagined

This is my second set of alternate book covers for this series. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of making them. :)

PLEASE CLICK TO MAKE THESE BIGGER!! IT’S WORTH, I PROMISE!

I really need to learn to assess myself properly, for good and for bad. Like… I need to able to know if I’m good at something. I need to be able to know if I’m bad at something. This complete lack of self-esteem (and I mean that in the literal sense - a lack of estimation of self) is the single greatest thing keeping me from my dreams, and… I am ambitious, I want to succeed, I want to achieve my dreams. 

I don’t want this to stop me, and while so far I’ve managed to get away with it because I’ve been really lucky with certain things, it’s going to become a bigger issue as I advance. I’m going to need to know my limits properly, understand what my strengths and weaknesses are without humility or overconfidence or discomfort or whatever. I’m going to need to know to acknowledge and be proud of my legitimate achievements. I’m going to need to know what to focus on in bettering myself.

And now the big question: how do I do this.

Art ‘Contests’ Hurt Our Business

If you’re a pro or aspiring to be one, just say ‘no’ to these art contests put on by major brands and marketing companies. All they do is provide the client with tons of free art and a tiny pay day for the selected artist. I’m getting more direct with my replies to these annoying emails - the one below was in reply to an email about designing a can for Mike’s Harder Lemonade (this is a multi-million dollar brand, folks, offering to pay $7500 for winning can design… pathetic)- let’s show these companies that we don’t work for free. 

Dear —-,
My schedule is very busy right now, but I have a counter offer for you: I’m looking for a company to rebrand and promote my business. Please put together an amazing campaign and if I like it, I might pay you for it. This is a great opportunity for you – the exposure would be tremendous! The deadline is June 25th.

See how that feels? Do you want to do a pile of work on the off chance you will get compensated for it? Please stop treating professional artists like desperate kids with no business sense. No major brand would exist without the skilled hands and minds of the ARTISTS who make them look good. That is worth millions - please pay accordingly. And keep your contests for Karaoke night at the office.

Sincerely,
Kyle T Webster

you are art

some people will misinterpret you

some people will merely glance at you

some people will critique you

some people will try to buy you

some people will stare at you in awe

some people will appreciate you

some people will study you and know all of your details

whichever it is, you’re still art,

made by the hands that swirled the galaxies,

crafted by the Molder of the mountains.

you, a novel in the works,

a portrait of Grace that needs finishing touches.

so if someone doesn’t like what they see,

or what you make them feel,

please don’t forget

your worth is not determined by spectators.

they didn’t design your pattern with care,

they didn’t chisel away the sharp edges of your heart,

they didn’t see the ripped canvas you once were.

the Artist did.

Fandom pro-tip:

If you see a post hating on your fandom, ship, whatever

DO NOT ARGUE OR HATE BACK

Just simply ignore it. The phrase “Don’t feed the trolls” applies here as well even if these people aren’t technically "trolling”. The thrive on attention and the reactions they get from riling people up who they feel are wrong or “bad”. They usually have large groups behind them so trying to defend yourself will get you a barrage of hate and harassment. Stay out of it. They won’t listen to a word you say and they’re not worth spreading negativity and drama anyway.
