I’ve been struggling with anxiety and paranoia a lot more now than I had before….. between financial tensions and the fear of my art never going anywhere and just getting stolen and my isolation and so many other problems in my personal life that just pile up to the point where I have little room to even move anymore…. I want to find a way out, but it is unbelievably difficult at this point….
…..This is the most terrifying Halloween of my life…. and not in a good way…..

I am so sorry friends, I really really hate to bring this up again, but I am seeing this happen to other artists as well in the past week or so, and I really just want to point out that this really upsets me to know that there are people out there that take something we put our heart and soul into, rehash it and repost it without any credit to the original artist, instead of just reblogging it, or if it’s on another site, naming the artist with the original link. This kind of stuff really makes me second guess on posting the art that I have finished recently, because I know someone out there is going to use it just so they can get a bunch of notes, and to know that is just….. sad….

You know who you are if you are reading this, and I just want you to know that it is so disrespectful to me, and I am very very disappointed in you. You can be a better person than that. 
Artists are not machines that just throw up products for you to play around with, artists are people who express their personalities, emotions, views, and souls through their pieces. It’s how we communicate, and every piece is a part of us. Do not tear off the signatures, reorder the panels, recolor the art or put a bunch of filters over them for your own amusement, it is painful. Please, handle our souls with care.

IF you found the art on another site and don’t know where it came from, here are some ways you can search the art by using the image. Otherwise, try not to post it until you can find the artist to credit them. 
On the other hand, I am very glad that there are people who do take the time to look for the artist and credit them, and those who let them know about these kinds of things. I appreciate that these people really took their time to look for the original and I applaud them for it. Thank you guys and everyone else who does this. You also know who you are, and it gives me hope to know that there are people out there who truly respect us artists. :)
 Thank you.

Just curious, are you an animation student/professional? I really love your art BTW!

I just graduated from College with a BFA in animation a couple months ago. I HOPE to be a professional artist some day (in terms of having an actual career in it), but it’s gonna take a while to get to that status… I hope I can get there eventually… heheh…

Thank you, friend! I hope to keep it up in the future! ^_^

Also I am reading these messages that I am getting and I feel so embarrassed cause I really really don’t think I deserve them, but I really appreciate them and I can’t even begin to tell you all how grateful I feel. I love you guys so much cause you are all so sweet, bless you all!

I love you, sweet friends!

I&#8217;m feeling so alienated from everyone I know&#8230;&#8230;
Like an ugly, stupid, useless creature that everyone avoids and hopes will die soon so they don&#8217;t have to deal with its presence&#8230;..
&#8230;.I shouldn&#8217;t complain, or even talk about this in public&#8230;.. but I can&#8217;t help thinking about it every minute&#8230;. every second&#8230;. 
I&#8217;m sorry, friends&#8230;..

….I shouldn’t complain, or even talk about this in public….. but I can’t help thinking about it every minute…. every second…. 

I’m sorry, friends…..

Seeing people repost my art makes me very sad…. especially when it is in a format that it’s not supposed to be shown in….

Please, if you don’t know who the art belongs to, do not post it until you do, and make sure it’s the original verson….
