Sometimes I think about the fact that we literally have computer glasses for our face and yet the best visual metaphor a bunch of artists can come up with for the modern condition is people with a cathode ray tube tv for a head
I really need a scanner so I can start posting my comics and drawings again I feel so cut off and I wanna post art
"David Batchelor has argued that "in the West, since Antiquity, colour has been systematically marginalized, reviled, diminished, and degraded." This chromophobia, or fear of color, manifests as the valorization of white as the color of rational, clean, controlled spaces, while color is seen as dangerous, superficial, and potentially contaminating."
David Batchelor is apparently a collossal idiot because antiquity was gaudy as fuck, literally everything was covered in bright colours, it’s white austere marble and stone now because shock, natural pigments don’t last hundreds or thousands of years.
"[referring to europe in the 1700s…] and in Europe more generally, bright colors were taken as a sign of degeneracy and inferiority."
The most popular and influential art and fashion style of the 18th century was friggin’ rococo, the style that knew no moderation when it came to bright colour and pattern. The whole point of the calico act was because colourful calico prints were so incredibly popular and fashionable that they were threatening the british textile industry. The reason Goethe dissed colour is because he was raised Lutheran and was a classicist and thus was doubly devoted to being chromatically drab as heck.
That whole article’s just a giant mess really.
fucking powerful. and unfortunately true
Tall people are assholes.
I don’t think it meant that tall people are assholes. I think it means that as you get older and older the more pain and suffering you’re put through, the more you learn to trust people less and less and you begin to grow into a selfish human being. You stop letting people in to your life and stop loving. You forget what love is since you’ve gone through life being ignored and taken advantage of.
Tall people are assholes.
Yeah tall people are assholes.
Don’t trust tall people, what are they doing up there? None of us know, we can’t crane our necks at that angle, we’ll get a crick.
I’ve been having panic attacks so bad recently that I honestly just want to smash in my own head with a rock to get this feeling to stop.
eyewrit asked: Hi. I enjoy your blog... I am sure you have noticed. I don't have a better medium with which to say so. J.
Aww thanks that made my day a lot better, I really like your blog too!
I’m not going to name you because I’m not sure how young you are but I do not support your beliefs in stamping on some of the most poorly treated and heavily abused people in our society, I do not support your hatred of a group that is at one of the highest risks in the world for sexual abuse, assault and murder, I do not believe in your idea of queer activism that involves throwing our most vulnerable under a bus. Anyone else who follows me and believes in being hateful and abusive to a group with an almost 50% instance of suicide attempts can unfollow me too please.
