I had hoped I wouldn’t need to make a post about this, since I thought I had solid plans in the works. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it went.
I have been unemployed since January 1 of this year. The company that I was working for went out of business. I then got in contact with a former employer, hoping that they would have a place for me. We had a phone interview, and things were truly looking up, until they just… never called me back.
I am also in the process of applying for unemployment at this time, ftr.
I still have my computer, and I still have Photoshop, so I would much prefer people commission me for artwork rather than me just straight up asking for donations while I look for another job.
If you have something in mind, like a photo retouch or anything, send me a message here on Tumblr or you can send me a detailed email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do have anything to spare, my PayPal address is also email@example.com
And, of course, if you’re not able to commission me or donate, a reblog will always be appreciated to help spread the word.
Please consider helping a broke ass Latina out. LOL.
all these queens are livid about paper magazine not retouching their photos and i would fucking be too like yall are really gonna publish unflattering + badly lit + untouched shots of DRAG QUEENS? unprofessional
The photo published by the New York Times in 1942 has been cited by modern day conspiracy theorists as evidence of extraterrestrial visitation. The say the photo clearly shows searchlights focused on an alien space ship.
However, the photo was heavily modified by photo retouching prior to publication
a routine practice in graphic arts of the time intended to improve contrast in black and white photos. (source)
