Anonymous asked:Are you interested in anyone right now?
- I’m not sorry.
I’m a full time student with two part time jobs, which means 0 days off. Its usually a miracle when I have a day off, and its usually filled with chores. Because of this, I haven’t had a lot of time to draw, and it really upsets me. I gotta figure out what to do. Its not a issue of balancing my time, its an issue of having more of it.
Livestreaming some commission work for a little, maybe requests. Feel free to stop by!
Livestreaming! Working on a new print.
Livestream online! Feel free to stop by and say hi!
I really miss my figure drawing class. It taught me so much in such a little amount of time.
Charcoal on paper, est. 1 minute
So the first sketch I did of this guy made him look a little too daunting, I’ve adjusted his design appropriately to suite his personality more! Some quickie head busts of Jericho I did during DnD tonight!
He’s gotten a lot more development storywise then I expected so I’m probably going to do a little more doodling of him heehee
So my feathers are still relatively ruffled at this one particular dude who thinks that what you get paid as an artist is dependent on a series of arbitrary factors that they seem to want to keep secret.
SO. If you are an artist and charge hourly for your work…
I don’t charge by the hour, but if I did, I’d make only about $5 an hour with how long it takes me to finish each piece.
Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:
Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.
According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:
Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!
