it’s actually way too common where painters almost drink their paint water

Or actually full out drink it

Or rinse the brush in your drink

Or both

So many of my paintings secretly have coffee, tea and vodka in them for that exact reason.

you basically haven’t been painting….or inking! long enough if you have yet to have this problem.
I’ll admit, really light inkwash? watercolour? I just shrug and drink it if it happens.

You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you’re finished, you’ll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird… So let’s look at the bird and see what it’s doing — that’s what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something. Richard Feynman

Anonymous asked: hi, i'm sorry if this has been asked but in your powerpoint you said that the tumblr sj community is guilty of antisemitism. what kind of things has it done? also, i love your blog!

I’ll take this one since I’m the blog’s resident Jew.  Oy vey, where do I start…

  • SJ community loves to police Jewish identity and silence actual Jews when they talk about their own identities.  This usually happens in context of either “Are Jews White?” or “Jewishness is just a religion” conversations.  In reality, Jews are an ethnoreligious group that ethnically originated in the middle east, and while some ethnic Jews have light skin, it’s actually due to centuries of forced assimilation in European and Slavic countries through rape, which is a big reason why Jewishness is matrilineal.  Furthermore, there exist Jews who do not look white at all.  There are black, brown, and asian Jews who are all ethnically Jewish, and these conversations erase them.
  • "Jewish privilege".  Fact: It’s not a thing.  It’s actually a very common anti-semitic trope that says that Jews run everything so they are not oppressed.  Jews are oppressed, and face anti-semitic violence.
  • "Anti-semitism is not just about Jews, there are other semitic people." While yea, there are other semitic people, the term "anti-semitism" was created by Germans in the 19th century to refer specifically to the hatred of Jews because it sounded more scientific.
  • Blaming anti-semitic violence in Europe on the actions of Israel.  I see this literally every single day on this site, and it’s very upsetting.  Jews that live in the diaspora are not responsible for Israel’s actions, and especially should not be suffering at the hands of white people in Europe under the guise of anti-zionism.  
  • Finally, and this is a big pet peeve of mine.  The only people I ever see reblogging posts about anti-semitism are other Jews.  Even a lot of my non-Jewish followers will reblog posts about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. but ignore posts about anti-semitism, and that as a Jew makes me feel unsafe. 

That’s enough for now.  If you’re interested in learning more about Jewish identity and anti-semitism, you are welcome to check out my personal blog: yochevedke.  I discuss that stuff a lot.

Another Jew reblogging about anti-semitism. I’ve seen some increase in concern about this from goyim, but it’s been slow going. Hopefully we’ll pick up a big head of steam soon.

As a Jew, I’m actually terrified to talk about antisemitism when I see it, cause it’s been so belittled and minimized for me. 

Please call it out, guys, just like you would any other kind of bigotry or racism. 

I’m not a Jew, but as someone with mostly German ancestry, I quickly got tired of/wise to being expected to laugh along with anti-semitic jokes or agree with anti-semitic statements (it just became part of being wise to the ways people will twist north and central european heritage for their ideologies.)

And, being in the anti-fascist camp, and, not supporting Israel’s actions as a state, sometimes it’s just mind-boggling the way someone on the far-left (or even the near-left, or centrists) can basically sound like they’re parroting Stormfront lines.
Or, just the way folks casually dismiss anti-semitism as an actual Thing that Still Happens…yes, even in the US. It didn’t magically disappear.

Dear Gentlemen of Comics…Can We Talk?

tessfowler:

  Laying my sword down for a second. You’re safe here. I’m not going to hack you to pieces. For the moment, at least. (See? That’s a joke. I’m normal just like you. I make jokes too.) But I warn you, this is probably not something you want to hear. Don’t be scared though. It’s okay. Just stick around and read through to the end.

  Guys, I’m tired.

  Like bone tired. 

Totally sick of having the “rape and harassment” in comics discussion. How about this: No more rape and harassment in comics. Deal? No, in all seriousness. Hear me out.

  Talking with other women about the same men over and over again because they’re repeat offenders and no one will stand in their way…is TIRING. If you’re a man working in comics and you know about other men who harass and ASSAULT women, you HAVE to take a stand. You have to set an example gentlemen. Now. Please. Give us ladies a day off. Let us know you’re out there. The hardest part for me is watching intelligent creative women trying to come up with ways to repair a system they didn’t break. While the menfolk either stay completely silent or write us messages in private to show their “support”. SPEAK OUT.

  Dude. Was that too harsh? Too fast for you? I’m sorry. Please don’t leave. I know there’s nothing you hate worse than a woman (ohgawdnotaFEMINISTplease!!) with a chip on her shoulder. And yes, I am indeed a feminist, too. But I’m so exhausted. Just stick around a bit longer. I really need you to listen.

  You love comics, right? The actual artistic expression involved is what lights your fire. I know it. Or maybe it’s the capes that do it for you? The horror books? We all have our thing. And of course it’s far easier to sit in your cave and make the comics and ignore the industry until it’s time for it to give you some small sustenance by way of a paycheck or accolades or what have you. I get that. 

  But see, some of us ladies used to be little girls. Little girls who lived in houses and worlds ruled by men. Sometimes those men weren’t very nice. And when we were those little girls we found comics…comics made by YOU. Comics about superheroes and justice. Comics about rebels and rogues. And reading those comics helped us believe that not all men were bad. That sometimes there are some men who don’t just want to watch the world burn. Men who believe in a higher code. We wanted to be in comics so we could ride in Robin Hood’s band of merry men.

  Imagine our horror when we got here and found out how many of you aren’t actually Robin. You’re the Sheriff and Prince John. You’re cutthroats and thieves and monsters. The good ones among you? Silent. Not heroes at all.

  Fine. I’ll play Robin.

  But who among you is going to stop being quiet and ride with me? Who is going to get the rapists and known harassers OFF the convention circuit? (I was seated right behind one at SDCC. Don’t tell me they’re not there) Who is going to put zero tolerance policies in place for men who act out at conventions or at signings or in your offices right under your noses? Who is going to actually make a difference instead of just slinking around in a whisper crusade to protect their comic book brethren from the big bad foe called “WOMAN”?

  Let’s be cool. Let’s be buds. Let’s be a team. I don’t wanna be angry all the time. I just want to wake up in the morning, make my comics, and not have to trip over bullshit. 

How about a Comic Book Gentleman’s Manifesto?

" I hereby do solemnly swear not to…" Aw c’mon. Who am I kidding? You probably want to write this yourself.

I still believe in you, Peter Pan. Don’t let me down.
