it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

Kevin Tran’s College Admission Essay, read by Osric Chau. 

No but I don’t understand why more people haven’t watched this. He wrote and read this himself as a character study and it is heartbreaking.

My heart just shattered

Just been asked in an interview whether I was worried about playing “two gay characters???” “Why???”…”Because you run the danger of those characters being the same….”…”Cause of their sexuality?”…..”Yes”…..”They’re both white, should I be worried about that too?”….”Of course not”….”Like somehow homosexuality makes all gay people identical.. Like somehow being gay IS the character” Let me tell you, Sexuality doesn’t define you. What makes you get out of bed in the morning defines you. That’s character. What he’s talking about is homophobia… that’s says more about his character than it does the ones I portrayed. Needless to say the interview ended. Popcorn journalism. Marks out of ten??? Just the 1…

Who is this?

Oh Emmett … *O*

Anonymous: I notice that you get accused of cheating a lot, but I was curious, how do you feel about artists who do the things you often get accused of doing? Like tracing or smudging photos? You never seem very worried about defending yourself or giving proof to people, which tells me that maybe you don't think it's a terribly bad thing to be accused of that stuff.

It’s totally not bad. Photomanipulation is a legit artform that requires a ton of skill and a lot of hard work. I’m impressed as hell by people who can do it well.

But in my experience, haters don’t think that way. They just want to take you down a notch, and “You traced!” is an easy way to do that. Which is stupid because any artist knows that tracing doesn’t replace skill.

As for people who misrepresent themselves? I understand it, but it’s still frustrating. I don’t know why people don’t just say what they do. If you smudge a photo, then just say it, you know? I don’t know why people are afraid of being proud of the work they do. Probably because society has us all brainwashed about what “real art” is supposed to be. We think talent is a magical thing that falls out of the sky at random instead of being something that an individual can earn—and therefore deserve. We don’t like to believe that other people deserve something if we can’t deserve it, too, you know?

That’s why misrepresenting yourself because you think one form of art is more legit than another makes life harder for all of us. Because you’re just widening that chasm. You’re just one more voice telling everyone that not all art is valid and that not everyone deserves to be able to make art or define art for themselves.

So we end up with more and more people who have unrealistic ideas of what art is supposed to look like. Which means you end up with more haters.

It’s a rotten cycle, and it shouldn’t be that way. Art isn’t exclusive.

As for defending myself, I don’t go out of my way because it’s not worth my time.

Honestly, I think a lot of it goes back to grade school stigma. What’s one of the first admonitions of the kindergarten teacher? Color inside the lines. Why? The person who drew the coloring book left the background bushes and trees unfinished because they reached the edge of the paper. Real bushes and trees don’t fade into oblivion, do they? Lines aren’t reliable.

Another one I heard all through early elementary was, “Don’t scribble.” Scribble. A vague piece of advice if ever there was one. But if another kid saw you doing what they perceived as scribbling, they would pounce on you as if they’d caught you stealing milk money. I thought it was maybe just a quirk of the school I went to but my kids have mentioned it too. As far as I can tell, scribble just means coloring fast. Heaven forbid I don’t feel like taking my time filling in the big spaces…

So it goes. Somewhere in there, it becomes a sin to trace, yes, because some kids represent that as their own art, because kids are insecure. And because other kids are insecure, too, they pounce and take down the charlatan. But it is absolutely true that tracing isn’t drawing. I sometimes use tracing to help me work out proportion… I draw the subject first because, yeah, I’d prefer to just draw it right myself, then separately trace from the source because to be honest, even after years of drawing and study, I cannot get eyes in the right place. I even dreamed last night about a vampire who drew his self-portrait in burgundy wine colored pencil and I was looking at it thinking, “Huh, NO ONE can get the eyes right, can they?” Not making this up. So I trace and look at the trace lines and compare to my own drawing. A trace looks ridiculous on its own. The unexpected quirks of facial anatomy can’t be hidden in it. And I can usually figure out where I lost it and correct the original drawing.

What’s more, tracing your own work is almost essential, at least for me. I learned in one drawing class to draw the subject, then overlay tracing paper and make corrections until you have it the way you want it, then transfer and complete. It was like morning sunrise to me, learning that. And digital just makes that easier.

But yeah, why not just say it? How many people are popular artists using found objects or collage? Tracing to the right effect is no less valid. It’s not drawing, but it can be art.

Crap, I’m ranting again. I blame the head cold.

That was perfect, though.

Nintendo’s sales haven’t been what they hoped for or expected, so all the executives got together and made the decision to cut their salaries in half to ensure their employees still get paid. They say it’s the fault of the executives that the products aren’t selling well, not their employees, so it isn’t fair for the employees to have to take the hits for that.

Why are there people who don’t like or respect Nintendo again?
