there's been plenty of bullshit and hate circling around (especially regarding copyright laws and how little people seem to understand how they protect artistic works). i'm here to tell you *spongebob rainbow hands* nobody cares. <3 i get called nasty names and i get hate emails (a particular favorite was "i hope you overdose at a rave and die") and i get bullshit tossed my way because i don't divulge the secrets, the techniques, the sources of my material. guess who doesn't care about it? this chick, riiiight here! i'm honestly over it. people will love me, people will hate me. people will judge me and people will accept me. maybe we had a bad encounter and if we did, i'm legitimately sorry for it. if there was a wayback machine to fix things, i'd hop in and do just that. but i can't and so life goes on. i make art for myself and my little masked family and our wonderful admirers. i love it, it's my life, and i am living my ultimate dream as an artist. if you want to try and poot on that, how's about taking a step back first and seeing if you're living the life you love. are you? are you waking up each day with a smile on your face because you get to let your heart do what it's always wanted to do? or do you wake up and drag yourself to a job you hate? do you let that hate bleed over into things completely unrelated to your life? if you do, maybe it's time to take a moment for you and figure things out. <3 i'm at the point where, even though i have my snippy moments, my moments of sadness, my moments of weakness, i am ultimately happy. no one can take that away from me, and you shouldn't let anyone take that away from you either. do what you love and love what you do. i do, and it's been working out pretty fucking fantastic!!!
