Reminders to myself (and any other artsy people who follow me i guess)

stardustmote:

-You don’t get better at drawing by avoiding drawing until you are better at drawing.

- You don’t have to make a new masterpiece every day it’s okay if all you drew is a doodle of a bug. You are now +1 bug doodle better at doodling bugs. 

- Also it’s okay if the thing you drew didn’t turn out very good. Everything you draw makes you one step closer to being able to draw good. You are still +1 step better at drawing whatever you drew no take backsies.

- You are the only person who knows if your art didn’t turn out as good as you wanted it to. You are the only person who can see the things in your art that weren’t what you imagined in your head. No one else will know unless you tell them.

- Comparing yourself to other artists just isn’t fair. You get to see all of your art, the best stuff and the worst stuff. You usually only get to see the best stuff other artists make. You don’t get to see that half drawn badly propotioned face they drew at 2 am and immediately scrapped. So don’t compare your badly drawn 2 am face to their best work.

- Just keep making art. The only way you can really fail is if you give up.

A reminder to all my sistas. #ILoveMyWideNose

Learning. 

Why do think European explorers cut off the noses on the Egyptian statues because it was evidence. Lets embrace our African features, black is beautiful.

no one really needs me and that makes me really fucking sad 

no listen okay nobody really needs oreos or tv or pictures of clouds: but they’re all stuff that makes the world better for existing. i think the whole western idea of “you must have worth! you must have value! you must be NEEDED!” is really poisonous. you are not for sale. you don’t need a “worth,” a “value”. you don’t NEED to be needed!!! it’s okay to just BE! a few days ago a girl thought i was out of earshot and said “omg she’s so pretty!!” and yeah i don’t need to hear that, but it made me so incredibly happy!! 

plus: there’s literally no way for you to know how you’ll effect someone through your life. my friend didn’t commit suicide because a passing stranger on the train happened to say something into his phone that connected with her soul (”of course you deserve love, you are breathing, aren’t you?”) and she didn’t have the chance to thank him or ever see him again but she needed to hear that. i think we need to be in places + talk to people + overhear certain things: but they’re never the stuff we expect. in the meantime, i promise, for at least one person (that’s myself): you’re my oreos. i sure as hell would be a sad girl without you.

you don’t NEED to be needed!!! it’s okay to just BE! 

this is very important

I needed this today.

Shout out to all my trans boys who have thick thighs. Shout out to the ones who feel dysphoria because men’s pants don’t fit them right. Shout out to my trans boys whose boobs are too big to ever bind flat, no matter what binder they use. Shout out to all my “curvy” trans boys who don’t know how to keep their hips from showing but they want them gone. Shout out to my trans boys that probably will never pass without surgery or T or both. We’re in this together.

this is so important

I want little Arab girls to know that they’re beautiful and valued. That their arm hair and fuzzy faces and unibrows are beautiful. That the darker skin under their eyes is inherited from generations of women who’ve survived a world that didn’t care if they made it, at best. That they share blood with warrior women, whose simply daily lives were a testament to strength of will. I want them to know they can be anything. They can be architects and build us a brand new world, they can be chefs and make people happy with their food, they can be visual artists and awe us with the glimpses they give us of the world through their eyes, they can be journalists and show us what goes on beyond our own communities, they can be tradeswomen and build with their hands, they can be fashion designers and awe us with their attention to detail and creativity. They can be anything. And they can start at any time.

Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

bootsnblossoms:

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts.  A lot.  From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies.  Features and pilots.  Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff.  It’s more inspired.  It’s more compelling.  It’s genre bending and creative and heartfelt.  It’s well-paced and intense and funny and sexy and meaningful.  It’s smart and thoughtful and good.  It’s novel-quality.  Better than, sometimes.

Rare is the script I don’t want to put down, but how often have we stayed up until 3am to get to the last chapter of a 100k fic? And it’s not even a fan fic author’s day job.  This is what they do on the side.  In their spare time.  For free.

So my point is, fan fic authors, you’re good.  You’re good writers and great storytellers.  I know it doesn’t always feel like it, especially if you’re one of the authors who’s not a BNF and doesn’t get the notes/hits that a few do.  And  because some people still view fic as “not real writing.” You guys know the shit that gets made into movies.  You’re better than that.  So be better than that.  If writing is what you think want to do, then just know you’re already doing it.   You’ve already started.

And you’re more talented than you might think.

To all of my writer friends. This is so fucking true. <3

you all deserve someone who isn’t embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, whether they’re good or bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you all the time and i really hope all of you find that one day because you all deserved to be loved

Hello, darling.

fairysharkmother:

I know that there are horrible things going on right now.
image
Take a little time to think and calm down.
image
Everything might seem scary and horrible.
image
But even through this, we see people being extremely kind and strong.
image
Take sometime to remember that.
image
And realize that we’re not fighting only because the world is horrible.
image
We’re fighting to protect what’s good and just.
image
We’re fighting to protect those who can’t.
image
Now stay calm, but stay passionate.

Be the villain you were born to be. Stop waiting for someone to come along and corrupt you. Succumb to the darkness yourself.

Today in gym class we were doing major climbing and halfway up this girl freezes and goes “I CAN’T DO IT I CAN’T DO IT”

so some dude yells “MY AUNT SAID DAT AT HER WEDDIN’ BUT SHE MARRIED DAT FINE-ASS DOCTOR AND NOW SHE RICH AS HELL” 

the girl did it. truly inspiring.

I should add that it was a shrimpy 5’1 Indian boy nobody had ever heard talk before who was apparently from the deep south.
