Hey yall, my inbox is stuffed with notes about my heart gif being reposted elsewhere with no credit and racking up a ton of notes with no link back to me. It’s a bummer! And I super appreciate everyone keeping me alerted on these kinds of things. It’s so helpful having eyes out there who recognize my work and help keep my name attached :) You guys are awesome!! I really appreciate it!
Please don’t send hate mail to the person who reposted it! These things rarely ever happen out of malice, it’s usually someone who has just never thought about the importance of an artist being linked to their work before, or maybe found the gif somewhere else and it just didn’t dawn on them to discover its origin. The best way to handle these kinda things (for future reference) is make a good case, explain why credit is important and hope that the person will take it to heart. (see what I did there with the heart joke lol)
So yeah, don’t go sending aggressive messages or anything! And thank you for keeping an eye out for me!
EDIT: I’d like to add that the poster of the re-post has contacted me and wants to link to me. See? Cool person! Cool person with good taste in art B)
I saw Alex Hirsch post a piece of a storyboard you drew on twitter earlier, does this mean you are boarding for Gravity Falls now? Because if so that's pretty much the raddest thing. If not, I'm sure whatever it is is still pretty rad.
Hey, I'm really sorry, I don't mean to be rude, and hopefully you haven't gotten a bunch of people telling you this, but I think the phrase is "crapshoot"--like the game craps? (This is a terrible name for a game I think) Craps is a game of chance, so if something is a crapshoot it means the outcome is unpredictable. I think that's what you meant. Sorry! I hope this doesn't sound condescending or anything.
lmao it’s totally fine! I’m actually surprised I’ve never made this connection before, cuz I KNOW about shooting craps the game, but when I was younger someone explained the expression to me as like “You know, the chute they send crap down, like a mail chute” and I nodded and was like “yes that makes sense” and never made the connection until now. loooool I really like both interpretations of the expression, now that I think about it
That comic was so cute! But do you mind explaining the story a bit more? Or is it meant to be open to interpretation?
Man last year I used to tweet like every day “If winter were a person, I would punch them in the face”. So the comic is more or less just a girl meeting a wintery spirit and not punching them in the face, even getting to meet Spring while she’s in the middle of a sweet hollow-tree nap.
