Every time I sneeze, there's a picture. So check out my mucus art~


Decent quality, jealousy-ensued art~
I watched two youtube videos about animations and... youtube hahaha!!

They're very interesting because it's a topic I'm super passionate about, in terms of art career vs financial stability.

I won't rant for too long, but I hope some of you guys understand the hard work artists go through. when I see comments like "art isn't a real job" or "make cartoons faster", I get livid.

With me, derogatory insults don't matter. You can call me whatever you want, I've been called worse by people I know. But ignorance on the animation process and business really gets to me. At least understand that even a minute animation takes a super long.

Having over 100,000 subscribers does not equate success for a youtube animator. And it's much more than not using adblocks.


OTHER TOPIC I've been feeling a little better. Thanks everyone for the nice comments! I've been surrounding myself lately with wonderful friends that are super positive and inspirational. It was rough before because I didn't use to have a lot of friends, and I've been through conflicting friend relationships. But things are getting better. I am going to make an effort to learn how to relax. Stress is just a part of life UvU~

Almost done with my third cartoon this year! I feel pumped!!
  • Mood: Pain
  • Listening to: stressed but okay
  • Reading: it's too hot in CA
  • Eating: must play Wii U with them again
  • Drinking: so much ANIMATING
