stand up for the artist

There’s a lot of shitty, hateful things happening in the world right now. But despite feeling utterly powerless, we should keep marching and talking and drawing and shouting until we’re heard. Don’t be silent, compassion is all we’ve got. Fuck racism. Diversity is beautiful.

The Signs and Their Luck

*In astrology, the planet Jupiter is associated with luck, wisdom, philosophy, and talents. In this post, I will focus on the luck and good karma Jupiter grants each sign. Check ONLY your Jupiter sign.*

Aries: In Aries, Jupiter grants the individual luck in asserting themselves. These individuals are easily motivated and driven to reach their goals. They are also awarded with confidence and courage. This can show that in the individual’s previous life, they lacked good self-esteem and did not stand up for themselves.

Taurus: In Taurus, Jupiter grants the individual luck with artistic abilities, finances, and in beauty/appeal. These individuals have natural creative abilities and are extremely resourceful and stable-minded. They do well with saving money and possessions. These individuals are also gifted with striking beauty. In a past life, these individuals were born in poverty and had limited access to material gain.

Gemini: In Gemini, Jupiter grants the individual luck in communication, learning, thinking, and teaching. These individuals have the ability to captivate others with their voice and their writings. They also have the ability to absorb knowledge like a human sponge  - and they have an urge to get this information out to others, making them teachers in a sense. In a past life, these individuals lacked the ability to communicate properly or could not speak, read, or write. 

Cancer: In Cancer, Jupiter grants the individual luck with family, home life, children, and the ability to nurture and love others. These individuals are compassionate, emotional, and comfort-loving. They are capable of making others feel loved and cared for through their motherly charm. In a past life, these individuals were neglected or treated terribly by their guardians. 

Leo: In Leo, Jupiter grants the individual luck with self-expression, attention, creativity, and with family and children. These individuals shine bright in all that they do. They are generous, warm, and vibrant! They make for excellent creatives and enjoy being in the spotlight, having their inner feelings and thoughts expressed. These people will be wonderful parents and will find great pride in their children. In a past life, these individuals experienced a lack of attention and recognition which damaged their ego.

Virgo: In Virgo, Jupiter grants the individual luck with education, work, productivity, and health. These individuals will most likely succeed in practical areas of life because they are very hard-working and intelligent. They are also quite helpful, humble, and genuine, especially when it comes to offering advice and consultation to others. They appear healthy, natural, and neat. In a  past life, these individuals may have experienced chronic illnesses that kept them from achieving what they wanted out of life.

Libra: In Libra, Jupiter grants the individual luck with love, relationships, beauty, and creative expression. These individuals enjoy being in relationships, mainly because they crave romance and affection. They look for balance and fairness in all matters of life and would make for a wonderful romantic partner. Not only are they loving, but they are also attractive and talented! In a past life, these individuals experienced abusive relationships, rejection, and isolation.

Scorpio: In Scorpio, Jupiter grants the individual luck with transformation, change, intuition, and regeneration. These individuals can conquer anything life throws their way with ease. There is not much that will phase them, as they are indestructible and resilient. They have also mastered the ability to fully observe and understand hidden motives produced by others and are not easy to fool. This comes from a past life where the individual may have had their life cut short, likely being murdered or dying by their own hand. Another possibility can be having lived various lives.

These individuals have a lot to learn in their lives and to them, life feels new and exciting. They will want to experience everything and anything! They can find that they will have various opportunities to travel throughout their lifetime. When they involve themselves in various religions, cultures, and ways of life, they will receive the knowledge and optimism they are looking for. In a past life, these individuals may have been atheists or were restricted by authority figures, so that they could not step outside of their conservative and traditional beliefs and morals.

Capricorn: In Capricorn, Jupiter grants the individual luck with leadership, work, finances, and control. These individuals are their own authority figure. They have a natural sense of discipline and a need to succeed in life. They should do well in careers relating to parenting, money, business, leadership, and managing. In a past life, these individuals had no control over their life and lacked proper discipline.

Aquarius: In Aquarius, Jupiter grants the individual luck with originality, technology, friendships, and humanitarianism. These individuals will take on careers and hobbies that others normally would not pursue - such as in technology, social media, occult studies, etc. They are unusual, brilliant, quirky, and kind. They will use their abilities and their occupation to voice their opinions on society in an attempt to help and support minorities and voices unheard. In a past life, these individuals were denied freedom of expression.

They have the urge to heal humanity and this starts with protecting animals and the environment. They are naturally spiritual and in tune with earth’s rhythm. Due to their deep feelings, artistic talents are quite common with this placement. In a past life, these individuals were kept isolated and imprisoned away from society.

CAN WE STOP THIS???

CAN WE STOP REPOSTING ART WITHOUT CREDIT? I don’t care if you love the show so much, you’re a dick if you repost without the slightest bit of credit. 

“ B-b-b-b-b-b-b-ut if you really wanted to find the artist, you could look for it! “

Funny thing, you can’t even copy an image on instagram to even put in google image search or tineye. I’ve tried to find the art to message the artist, so sometimes its not so easy. Also if they credited, it would make finding the artist a whole lot easier. I mean, so could you, dude.

“ But I love this show and I wanna show off the amazing art! “ 

No you don’t, you just love seeing the amount of likes growing in your notification box, you don’t give a rats ass about the artist. All of those 400+ likes could’ve done to the artist. If you really wanted to show the love to this fandom that makes wonderful art, you would’ve asked the artist first to see if they’d let you.

Interesting fact, some artist don’t like having their art reposted at all, even if you credit them because you’re getting the likes and attention, not them, fuck off.

David Bowie fandom Gothic
  • People keep telling you he has different coloured eyes. You correct them. It keeps happening again and again and again. There’s no end to this torture.
  • There’s a lightning bolt photoshopped onto a photo of him from every era. You don’t know what’s true anymore. Could the real Aladdin Sane please stand up?
  • David Bowie collaborates or was friends with an artist/musician. You are now a fan of said artist/musician. You have no choice in the matter.
  • Everyone both simultaneously loves and hates Labyrinth.
  • Some of his films are completely lost to time, has anyone actually seen B.U.S.T.E.D?
  • There’s is so many unnofficial biographies and they are all both fiction and non-fiction at the same time.
  • You copy his haircut. Your next haircut is another one of his haircuts. And the next. There’s no escape.
  • David Bowie is always simulatenously lying and telling the truth. You can never tell. Was he being serious in that one interview in 19xx?
  • You start noticing clothes that you think he’d wear, but they’re so ugly that you could never pull them off like he did
  • Every magazine is just another source of new posters.
  • David Bowie makes you question your gender identity and sexuality. These feelings didn’t exist before you found him, or did they?
  • You meet other Bowie fans. Somehow they are all the same, but different.
  • You don’t know her, but you trust Iman
  • Every now and then, you just get sad thinking about him.

i’m not sure how to articulate this at all, but the juxtaposition of harry having all these iconic firsts at the beginning of his solo career–being interviewed by paul mccartney for his first solo magazine, cameron crowe for a rolling stone cover for his first album, his first live performance on snl, his first film directed by christopher nolan–because he’s already Somebody and him choosing to take them on, to take these huge risks and put himself out there? choosing to stand up, nervous and shaking, for the first time as a solo artist on live television on a show that famously makes or breaks people’s cares is just amazing to me? 

like i keep thinking of gemma’s quote in another man:

Everything he does seemed to be effortless, even now; watching him leap around a stage in front of thousands of people, he seems untroubled and free from self-doubt. It’s easy to be jealous - he’s one of those people who are just good at things, we all know one - but to assume this means he takes it all for granted, or doesn’t worry, or try, would be oversimplifying him unfairly. His bundles of talent are a mixture of natural ability and intense heart.

it would be so easy for him to coast by, but that’s just not who he is. it’s not effortless, even if it seems that way. he’s so brave and careful and he works really fucking hard. he wants to be honest and make something real, something that he thinks is good and not just for the money. he doesn’t take the chances he’s been given for granted, and he doesn’t take one direction or the fans who helped get him here for granted, no matter how he gets treated in return. he’s just such a lovely person, and i’m so proud of him for being exactly who he is.

Art is dead. Art is dead. Art is dead. Art is dead.
Entertainers like to seem complicated, but we’re not complicated
I can explain it pretty easily.
Have you ever been to a birthday party for children
and one of the children won’t stop screaming.
Cause he’s just a little attention attractor. When he grows up to be a comic or actor,
He’ll be rewarded for never maturing.
For never understanding or learning
That every day can’t be about him. There’s other people.
You selfish asshole.

Must be psychotic
Must be demented
To think that I’m worthy of all this attention
Of all of this money you worked really hard for
I slept in late while you worked at the drug store
My drug’s attention
I am an addict
But I get paid to indulge in my habit
It’s all an illusion
I’m wearing makeup
I’m wearing makeup,makeup,makeup makeup, make…

Art is dead
So people think you’re funny,how do we get those peoples money?
I said art is dead
We’re rolling in dough while Carlin rolls in his grave
His grave,his grave

The show has got a budget
The show has got a budget
And all the poor people way more deserving of the money won’t budget
Cause I wanted my name in lights
When I could have fed a family of four for forty fucking fort nights
Forty fucking fort nights

I am an artist,please God forgive me
I am an artist,please don’t revere me
I am an artist,please don’t respect me
I am an artist,you’re free to correct me
A self centered artist
Self obsessed artist
I am an artist
I am an artist
But I’m just a kid
I’m just a kid
I’m just a kid
Kid
And maybe I’ll grow out of it.

—  Art is Dead, Bo Burnham

Honestly though, if you just mindlessly scribble with no expectation, it eventually ends up looking cool. You can be messy and make mistakes but the big picture will still look *cool* because it shows time and effort. And you might not find it impressive you remember all the times you messed up but I promise you, most people will never notice. It’s the same with life. If you’re at least *trying* then in the end you won’t notice the mistakes. Just the beautiful big picture.

taylor swift herself: we’re robbing a streaming company

me on autopilot: lol actually sweetie the thing about taylor’s apple music letter is that she wanted to stand up for all artists which she stated multiple times within the letter and was proven by

I just wanted to do a little shout-out to @euclase for being an inspiration to me as an artist and a person; I’ve been following them since I was in my mid-teens on Deviantart, and would try to study their techniques to get better at Photoshop painting. Their finished paintings always seemed like they were made with the help of magic but when you learn that it’s 100% practice and discipline and love for the craft then it’s so, so much more impressive than magic could ever be. 

And today, though I’ve graduated uni and my art styles have vastly changed, I still learn things from them. Not only things like colour pallets and image referencing and lighting studies, but things like agency. Having control over the way you interpret characters and paint them and reclaim them. Drawing for yourself and the power that gives you. Awareness of gender/racism/sexism in media and fandom and the art world. The importance of analysing one’s own behaviour and challenging the way the world is. That spreading kindness and supporting peers is so important in a world where hate is so readily available.

I often walk past a gallery in the city that has Marvel and Star Wars art on display in the windows, and it’s branded as quality, up-market artwork, “real” paintings worthy of galleries. It’s fan art. And I think of Euclase, because what they do is just as valid, and it’s beautiful and full of power because they put their time and love into something that they personally wanted to look at. It makes me feel brave about still producing my own fan art even after all this time, because that’s ultimately what makes me happy. I’m getting better at standing up for myself as an artist, and defending fandom, validity of women’s art, and the right of people to choose what they want to draw.

Thank you, Euclase.

Namjoon

Namjoon would try and play it cool, even though he would be freaking out inside that you HIS CELEBRITY CRUSH was sitting right next to him at the BillBoard Music Awards, and try to make conversation with you somehow.

*Accidentally spills his water over you* “Oh shit! I’m really sorry!”

Seokjin

With Jin being so good looking he’d instantly try and make conversation with you as soon as he noticed you were sat next to him. Also not giving a damn about the judgmental looks he received from the other members.

“Ugh… Hi, I’m Jin… I’m worldwide handsome…”

Yoongi

Would be cool on the outside… BUT LEGIT FREAKING OUT ON THE INSIDE! This boy would try and act casual but would be too tense to do anything, until he finally gets the courage to speak to you.

“You know BTS?”

Hoseok

Ray of sunshine would be sure happy to see you and would try to make conversation with you, going on about how big of a fan he was of yours and go on about how much he admires you.

“You want… To learn dance?”

Jimin

Poor mochi would be silent the whole time… To frightened to say a word, while awkwardly fiddling with his sleeve, in attempt to get you out of his mind. However, when BTS is called for Top Social Artist you stand up and shake his hand.

“T-Thank you…”

Taehyung

The poor boy would be completely clueless you were next to him until you had accidentally bumped his shoulder and apologised. He’d be so shook that he’d just stare at you, mouth open and eyes wide.

*sssttttaaaarrrrrreeee*

Jungkook

Would be pretty much the same as Jimin. Shy, awkward and would instantly freak out when your hand brushed against his accidentally. While the other members would be teasing him about being so tense around you.

“S-s-s-sorry…”
