“Dark Skin girls don’t look that good in makeup” Look if they can do it so can we! And don’t try to tell me she doesn’t like BOMB AF!!

Then they come with “Ok so she so looks great but what about natural beauty?” Makeup simply amplifies what you have already. I don’t think she tried to reconstruct her face. #BlackGirlMagic

First of all, I am so sorry you have to deal with all of this harassment and drama it's now put into your life. You are such a lovely and wonderful person no matter what other people may say, plus your art is A+. Second, no matter what, others are just going to be jealous of how beautiful you and your personality (and art) are and unfortunately that's how the world works. However. I believe that you are better than all of this hate that you're receiving. Sincerely, Caring Anon ❤️️

Awwwwww thank you so much for the sweet message. 
I don’t know why I just keep getting this unnecessary hate, but hopefully it will stop and we can all just chill.
I just don’t think people understand that at the end of the day, I am an actual person and I do have a right to be friends with who I want and if they wronged me, I have a right to put them out and I feel like part of this negativity is from people who are just upset over the fact that I stopped being friends with someone, but I have my reasons and like I said.. Unless they can prove to me in some way, shape, or form that they are sorry and really mean it then I just can’t do it. 

I also want to say really fast that @bloodyheart-art and @toucoocos have been friends with me for the longest of time. Especially me and Toucoocos (we literally know each other irl, hang out, etc). The “ass kissing/kisser” you all say to them is called being a good friend and actually going out to protect them in their time of need. I don’t know when being a good friend and protecting someone suddenly became a thing of “ass kissing”, but seriously. Grow a fucking pear and stop bullying people because of who they are friends with. It’s childish and really needs to stop.

genuine question (no snark intended) If you're not into porn or sex why do you post NSFW stuff on your blog? doesn't it squick you out?

No. I have eyes and can appreciate art. I can appreciate lines, colors, and shading, posture, and pose. I can appreciate forms and figures, and the beauty in them. I can appreciate other people getting to enjoy something that has no interest to me, like being happy for a friend who’s really into this other fandom you just don’t understand at all, but you really try to share in their enthusiasm, because it matters to them.

Some things that are pure wank material for the audience and not actually about intimacy or passion between subjects is off-putting to me, because at that point, it’s just crass and no longer art, imo.

(Ask box open and Anons are welcome!)

I’m not trying to call anyone out, but this reply I got on my “DO NOT REPOST” post is part of the problem:

“I get why you’re angry but when you don’t properly put a watermark on all your art that is big enough and in bright enough colors to see, what do you expect? It only makes it easier for the people to repost the art to claim that it’s not yours.”

Artists shouldn’t feel the need to paste ugly ass watermarks all over their beautiful artwork/creations! But many do or have started to because of reposters and art thieves!  This statement is BLAMING THE VICTIM, WHICH IS 100% WRONG. And no offense, but this is the EXACT reasoning reposters use, and it is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT.  So, please educate yourselves before you start whining about how artists ‘should know better’ and cover their art with their urls 50x over so that ignorant little shits don’t steal or repost them.

Even if you don’t repost, you are still part of the problem if you think this way.

Dear white people in the fashion world...

From @nykhor on Instagram: “Dear white people in the fashion world! Please don’t take this the wrong way but it’s time you people get your shit right when it comes to our complexion! Why do I have to bring my own makeup to a professional show when all the other white girls don’t have to do anything but show up wtf! Don’t try to make me feel bad because I am blue black its 2015 go to Mac, Bobbi Brown, Makeup forever, Iman cosmetic, black opal, even Lancôme and Clinique carried them plus so much more. there’s so much options our there for dark skin tones today. A good makeup artist would come prepare and do there research before coming to work because often time you know what to expect especially at a show! Stop apologizing it’s insulting and disrespectful to me and my race it doesn’t help, seriously! Make an effort at least! That goes for NYC, London, Milan, Paris and Cape Town plus everywhere else that have issues with black skin tones. Just because you only book a few of us doesn’t mean you have the right to make us look ratchet. I’m tired of complaining about not getting book as a black model and I’m definitely super tired of apologizing for my blackness!!!! Fashion is art, art is never racist it should be inclusive of all not only white people, shit we started fashion in Africa and you modernize and copy it! Why can’t we be part of fashion fully and equally?”

Check out her whole instagram feed. Stunning. 

Are there like actual awards for book cover art? Because there should be. 

There’s so many awards for actual books, why aren’t the people who do the cover art awarded for their brilliance as well. 

I know people are all “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” and “only the words are important”, but those beautiful covers were made by people doing a great job who I think need a bit of a round of applause. 

Covers are important. If you have never heard of a book before, it is the cover that will convince you in a book shop to look at it, rather than the hundred other books on the shelf next to it. 

The story may be the most important thing, but I know that I wouldn’t have even known a bunch of amazing books existed if I wasn’t wowed by their covers in bookshops. 

Credit where credit is due, people. 

I want book cover awards. With a proper awards ceremony. WITH BALLOONS. 

And I want it now. 

Lines of a Book Project

PLEASE READ

Hi everyone! My best friend and I, @daughterlilith have come up with a beautiful idea that we really want to pull through. We are both in love with the idea of people and having a piece of people that we’ve never met. We’ve seen people do art projects where they ask people to send them pictures, and we’ve decided to do one!

We are asking for pictures of your favorite line of your favorite book. We ask that you highlight your favorite line or make it obvious which line you are pointing out. We are trying to get as many photos as possible!!

There’s something about your favorite line/paragraph in your book, the reason why you chose it and we want to have that intimacy without even knowing you. The human mind is beautiful and they all work in different ways.

You’re probably wondering what we are going to do with these pictures? We are going to take these, and write your url, Instagram, Twitter, or however you send them to us on the back and we are going to post them in public places for people to see and read. We live in Los Angeles so many will be going to beaches, parks, malls, etc.

We would love for everyone and anyone to send us pictures from anywhere!
Please like and reblog to spread the word and send us your pictures💖

Richonne Trash All Call

I was tagged by a few people @sunflowerdope @just-wait-till-i-get-through @codename-me. I’m sorry if I missed anyone. I did a hair flip here in my classroom because I was happy this morning and overall I was just feeling good. Plus I need more pics to go on my ok cupid profile. TMI, I know. But that was before a coworker took me there with some immature mess. Do any of you have people in your lives who are just exhausting? You love them an all but they just wear you out? Yeah, that’s my coworker. She’s a kick-ass teacher but sometimes it’s just too early in the morning to deal false drama. 

AHYHOO that leads me to why I am Richonne trash. Seeing them on screen is like observing a beautiful piece of art. They help me forget about everyday stress and take me to my happy place. I like that AL and DG simply have no fucks to give about racist fans and their interactions as Richonne reflect that. It’s courageous, genuine, kind, patient, etc etc. I also like how they presented DG/Michonne as the leading lady and love interest of one of the most memorable TV heroes in recent history. I am hoping that this will change attitudes. Maybe one day the girls in my classroom won’t have to worry about their dark skin or whether or not their hair is “laid”. Richonne just makes me feel more positive about black female perception in the media.
