Honestly I can’t stop people from posting drawing(s) of mine. I source my images, I disabled right click .. so on so forth. There’s a lot of ways to save an image and reposting has already happened.
I don’t have any tips or ideas at all.
I could say sign your work but i don’t do that much myself…
Reposters cause me some distress because it takes away the number of views i could have gotten and when reposted art gets like more than 100,000 notes while my original source gets only 400 i sometimes wonder if i should have tagged better or what i’m doing wrong.
BUT I have never regretted posting my work on tumblr. I’ve got great followers and I think it makes me feel really good and comforted that there are people who can relate to me. I’ve got some messages from followers about how they’ve found the source (which is me) after so long and it makes me feel really good!! that someone actually can recognise my style/ works and want to find the source.
anyway, I’m doing good and i’m sorry I havent been posting much stuff recently because i’ve been busy with work and packing/moving to London.
thanks for asking! i hope you’re well too!
i cringe when i think of all the mistakes i’ve made.
I do. But highly inactive. @etcdrawings
PILOT V5 FOREVER
just keep drawing. that’s the simplest thing i can say. i don’t even follow it myself because sometimes drawing is emotional and it is hard and also because excuses.
but keep drawing. don’t stop just draw. don’t even think, just draw.
draw whatever you want, draw ugly shit, draw fine ass shit, draw curly lines, draw swirly faces just draw draw draw.
but of course, even i am struggling.
this is really sweet of you and it’s so touching to get something like this. I never thought of my writings as poetry but it’s nice of you to think that. this is a really encouraging message!!! thank you!!!!!!

Artists I like includes:
Rubyetc: She inspired me to start my own tumblr and her tumblr deals with issues such as depression and bipolar disorder (her personal issues and more). They are mostly lighthearted and show how sometimes you should take a good laugh at life
Amajor7; I think Seamus is a very kind person. Smart too. I think his work gets reposted the most around and he have probably found a way to not get too kicked up about it. Anyway, his stuff are hilarious, relatable and super chill
I don’t follow art blogs but there’s a very formal one called Artnet .. Which is super formal and professional feeling and stuff which i feel is kind of distancing but.. anyway, let me know if this is good (:
FUCK YOU WEHEARTIT
Fuck man seriously. Fuck fuck fuck.
I have been drawing in notebooks since late last year. We have muji here and its notebooks are really cheap and good. I usually get the brown ones with super smooth paper (quite thin as well).
I use it all the time and it gets all crumply and shitty but i love the way it looks and it’s also not too big and I can put it in my bag. Prior to that I drew on loose sheets and they all go somewhere else better I don’t have my originals most of the time.
i take a photo or scan my works and they all have a white background. except for a sandwich image i did last year. hope this helps!!
thoughts of you come and go,
be it bad, be it good,
