products with purpose

IMPORTANT: Do NOT buy any shirt with this print on it!

I have absolutely NOT given any permission to ANYONE to sell my fanart or other art online. This work is stolen for mass production purposes and it even has my watermark still on it.

I’m not very good at English and I have trouble with understanding all the information that ebay needs for me to fill and gather to make a proper report.

I have the original file of the picture and own account at ebay.

Tips & help are much appreciated!

I’m possibly stating the obvious here, but: Make your watermarks noticeable, make them difficult to photoshop off with their placement, upload your files in low quality and small size to web.

It sucks that you can’t present your artwork in quality and in a way it’s supposed to be viewed as because there are people like this.

Sheila I am Mexican too and I have thought about skin bleaching a lot. I know I shouldn't but sometimes I think it might be easier to be whiter. What was your experience with it?

Hey friendo. 

Let me tell you right now that I’m not going to yell at you. Or make you feel guilty. If your like me, you already feel really guilty for even THINKING about bleaching. A lot of the small, discreet forums I ran too when I first started bleaching were these tiny corners of the internet where mexican, hispanic, and black girls talked on forum about where to buy bleaches, how they got lighter. And they were always interspliced with us trying to tell each other to be strong, to stop, to not feel bad about what they were doing but also encouraging others not to start. It’s a sucky, sucky place to be, but I understand that you’re there. You know? And sometimes the act of controlling the shade of your skin can feel like overcoming the insecurity (its not.) 

Instead Imma tell you the realities of skin bleaching. 

First off, most of the brightening and bleaching products ARENT frederally regulated. I mean, they are super fucking dangerous. Just fyi. These companies are super shady and the ingrediants to even the FDA approved over-the-counter prescriptions of lighteners, have been linked to causing cancer. Over extended periods of time, it has been known to give a higher risk of, and even cause, cancer. They are still banned in a lot of countries. Yes, these are products that are used to help patients with post-sugery spotting, scarring, that are prescribed whiteners. Or even Vitilago patients, but even they are told the serious dangers and they are just using it for exactly that. SPOTTING. Not slathering it on your whole body.

Aside from being really fucking expensive, the ultimate thing that stopped me and others was this. 

You can’t actually strip your skin of melanin/pigment. 

It’s just not scientifically possible. Bleaching doesn’t actually BLEACH your skin. It just -delays and stops the melanin from forming- thats it. And in some whiteners, like the soap bar whitener, its actually peeling off layers of your skin to the non tanned cells beneath, and delaying melanin. This leads to redness, allergies, skin infections, and itchyness like a mutherfucker. It can be really painful.

But that also means that no matter how much you whiten, because you are only stopping melanin from forming instead of stripping, you will always be as tan as you are to begin with. You can only peel back and stop your layers so much before you reach your base shade. 

So guess what that means?

Your shade will always come back. 

Unless you plan on bleaching forever (see above about cancer) you will never reach a point that you won’t be tan, or won’t be in ‘need’ of bleaching. It will always, always come back. Because as soon as you stop using it, your melanin starts producing again. Unless of course, you damage your skin so badly you start DARKENING.

Yup, skin bleaching can also cause you to darken. 

And I don’t mean, it makes you get tanner. It blackens you. It’s called exogenous ochronosis. It’s when your skin gets damaged by the use of whiteners/bleachers and starts BLACKENING. Mostly in the thinner areas of your skin. Around your eyes is the most common one. Its practically unrepairable. Unless you want to sit under lasers at the dermatogloist weeks on end.

And finally, the shades you whiten never feel like enough. We all experienced this. It’ s a paranoia from your insecurity. As white as you get, you’ll still be staring at the mirror thinking ‘im too dark, im too dark.’ Because in the end it’s in your head, not in your skin. You’ll be endlessly torturing your body to try and fix your mind. I still struggle with this, despite having used it for 4-5 years and now stopped for another 4. And I realized that even though I was actively getting lighter, I was still not happy. Still not satisfied. That’s when I realized that I wasn’t targeting the right problem. What I had been made to think. Not what I had been made AS. 

And now, because I had beat up my skin so badly, I notice how much more easily I scar, I darken, I sun spot. The exact opposite of what I wanted. But i made my skin so tender, its more prone to tanning than not. 

I hope this helps. I know that when I realized all these things it turned me off completely, and many of the other girls that helped me stopped other from using just by explaining what they might be getting into. 

I’m always, always here to talk about this! On anon or privately! 

dog--years  asked:

Would you have any recommendations for a beginner's camera for photographing outdoor adventures, scenery type stuff, the kind of things I see when I'm exploring? I'm looking to give it a try after seeing all the cool shots on blogs like yours!

It really depends on how much gear you want to travel with, and what kind of budget you want to work with, too. Since there are a LOT of different factors to consider, and since I’m not certain as to what specifics you’re looking for, allow me to share my personal experience with cameras in hopes that you (and others!) can find something useful here!  

I started with a little Kodak Easy Share DX6490 point-and-shoot, and while I was able to make it work for me, I was severely limited because it didn’t offer the ability to adjust shutter speed, white balance, or ISO like a DLSR camera will. Below is an example of the type of photo I was taking with the early Kodak. Notice how the colors seem flat and dull, the darker sections look grainy, and while the bobcat’s face overall seems to be in focus, it’s clear on closer inspection that everything is just slightly burred.

On the bright side, the camera was cheap, could take a decent beating, and didn’t require additional lenses or gear. In a fix, it worked well in proper lighting situations, but for someone serious about getting good photos consistently, I’d suggest a DSLR instead. 

I personally upgraded to an entry-level DSLR in the Canon Rebel series. We could have the “Canon Vs. Nikon” discussion for the next six hours and still not conclude which maker is the better of the two; but having shot both, I’m more impressed with the quality of Nikon’s lenses, and even more impressed with the quality of Canon’s camera bodies.

In the end, I actually based my purchasing decision on company ethics. This may sound a bit odd since I am myself a hunter and taxidermist, but at the time when I first got into DSLR photography, I was not. In fact, I was big into animal rights back then, and believed that all hunting was terrible, so it came as an offensive shock to find that Nikon - a company avidly supported by wildlife enthusiasts all over the world - sponsors the Safari Hunt Club, manufactures scopes specifically for trophy hunting, and supports other hunting organizations which actively encourage lawmakers to ease protections for threatened and endangered wildlife around the world

My thoughts on the topic of hunting have changed since then, but I still feel that it’s important to point this out, especially if your personal ethics differ from mine and would be better-suited to the purchase of camera gear which doesn’t aid in the killing of animals.

In stark contrast to Nikon, Canon proudly runs their “Wildlife as Canon Sees It” campaign to help raised awareness for endangered species and threatened ecosystems, donates to environmental groups, and does not produce products intended for hunting purposes. 

But let’s get back to the main topic here: My first Canon was a Canon Rebel XTi, which are currently available for as little as $90.00 used. The Rebel series has since put out much more capable cameras, and for a beginner, this is ABSOLUTELY what I would recommend, especially since many of the newer ones shoot video as well as stills. Don’t let the small price tag fool you. Shooting with a Canon 75-300mm telephoto lens ($150.00 street value), I was able to take wildlife shots such as this: 

And with the 18-55mm stock lens that comes with the Canon Rebel XTi, I was taking adventure photos like this: 

But I felt the need for something better - with more power, wider range of options in manual mode, and video capabilities, so I shelled out for a Canon EOS 7D (currently going for around $1,000 used) , which is what I now utilize for many of my adventure photos, including nearly all the images I take of Ivar and the wolfdogs.

The cons are that this camera is hefty - it weighs much more than the Canon Rebel, and takes up far more room in a camera bag or backpack. But! It takes incredibly vivid photos and video, and was even used for (some) of the filming of BBC’s “Planet Earth” series. 

This camera serves me well, but it’s absolutely the kind of thing you need to work up to. If you spend big bucks on a camera like this and shoot with automatic settings the whole time, you’re not going to enjoy and will likely become frustrated when your photos don’t turn out like they appear in your mind’s eye. 

My advice is to get an entry-level DSLR first, and shoot using manual settings for at least a year or so to get confident and familiar with them, before dropping money on a more professional body. 

Here are the kinds of photos I take with the Canon EOS 7D: 

Finally, I ended up adding a GoPro Hero5 Black to my arsenal, largely because I needed what I call a “grab and run out the door” camera. It doesn’t allow for the same kind of quality or control that a DSLR does - not by a longshot. And it runs out of battery a quick pace, too. Sometimes, the color or white balance is terrible, and I have to do more post-processing than I do while shooting with the Canon EOS 7D; but the bright side is that it’s tiny, waterproof, shock proof, and takes some pretty impressive photos, especially during quick road trips and in situations when I don’t want to swap lenses and/or unpack the heftier camera. 

As you can see, the GoPro makes for some cool shots, especially when you utilize the wide angle feature. The downsides are pretty obvious, but I enjoy the fact that its small, portable, quick, and easy to use. Mine was $200 on Craigslist, so I got lucky there. If the current $400.00 price tag is too much, just wait until the company produces a few more new cameras, and the price will drop like a rock. 

Hope this helps!

I love it when people put hi-res photos of the stuff they’re selling on eBay. Especially since the only other picture I had of this was beyond small and cut off. 

(Yeah I tried going after this one but another person was willing to throw WAY more money at it than I was. I had some in-studio Don Bluth newsletter stuff and a photocopied publicity drawing, too, but I was mostly in it for this, and when I’ve bought some cels for half the price of what this went for, the model sheet from earlier this year go for a little more than half of what this went for, and a whole packet of model sheets from the movie, which if I remember correctly, had this model sheet go for half of what this went for… yeah man you can have it! I don’t need the original to re-boot the sculpt!)

September 8th, 2016  [3/∞ days of productivity]

I decided to change my 100 days of productivity challenge and keep doing it without a number in mind?? My days are crazy AF tbh, and it’s very difficult for me to post everyday

In other news, I just had my first partials and having all six exams in three days was hell y’all. Still enjoying every second though. Pictured above is the book I’m reading for my Competitive Intelligence class and coffee. 

“Economic growth” has replaced “progress” as the term with which industrial capitalism likes to justify its life-destroying rampage.

What the two have in common is that they are both meant to be undeniable facts of life. Within the capitalist/neoliberal mindset, it is a “given” that we need economic growth, as if it were in some way essential to our survival, like sunlight, fresh air or clean water.

This assumption is sadly sometimes also accepted by “radicals”, who fail to challenge this overall capitalist framework and focus instead on making the existing industrial system “fairer” or more “democratic”.

Degrowth rejects all forms of productivism (the belief that economic productivity and growth is the purpose of human organisation). It rejects the capitalist idea of “sustainable development”, which it sees as an oxymoron, as any development based on growth in a finite and environmentally stressed world is inherently unsustainable.

I'm so sorry you had to deal with the creeper cat moment, but I'm kind of relieved you got to that part. That part made me intensely uncomfortable when I read it when I was younger, and everyone I've come across seemed to think it was romantic, so I was really doubting my own judgement? boundaries? for a second. seeing you rage about it makes me feel a little better for being so freaked out. sorry you had to read it, but thanks!
