albus: “hello professor! did you know severus snape? my dad says he was the bravest man he ever knew”
neville longbottom: “is that fucking right”
Reminder that harassing someone and then telling them they shouldn’t be upset about it abuse.
Also comparing the thing you did to upset them to their reaction as if they are even remotely the same thing.
Don’t be That Douchebag.
I dunno how that’s a “trend” you can notice unless you can see everyone’s dashboards, in which case, stop looking over my shoulder, it’s creepy.
I can think of a few reasons. Maybe we don’t wanna spend hours weeding through heaps o’ junk, just because it may or may not “strike” us with inspiration (which, er, doesn’t really come from Tumblr). Maybe we prefer having shopping lists to just wandering around CostCo for four hours. Yeah, maybe having a specific list prevents us from trying a new kind of cranberry juice or whatever, but we’ve got things to do. And speaking personally, I do follow a large variety. It just so happens artists update more frequently.
Artists are a “tribe,” so to speak. Of course we like talking to each other and seeing each other’s stuff develop. People with mutual interests and passions gel well, and if that doesn’t make sense to you, I’m baffled.
If you’re a cynical asshole you probably see this as sycophantic behavior, like we’re all parasites taking turns leeching on each other’s popularity and fanbases. That’s the “trend” I’m noticing, people tending to assume the absolute worst about people who just try to draw for a living. Most of us aren’t monsters. Our eyes are probably red, but we’re not monsters. We just stare at screens too damn long and we ran out of Systane drops.
this is one of those anon things that is just… absurd
i mean, i follow most only artists and im STILL following, what, 350 blogs? thats a lot of art each day, with barely any reblog blogs (and they’re in fandoms im a part of)
i really don’t like when people feel like artists should spread their time to “”“”“regular”“”“” people because those people want attention too… i follow people who dont draw because they’re my friends, but i certainly dont give a shit about Joe Shmoe’s Reblog Blog, but i care a lot more about interacting with my friends’ reblog blogs because i can share things with them and we can socialize together via tumblr
i dont know just, “In my opinion, which you may or may not share, it would be beneficial to follow a lot of other people as well, for possible inspiration.” like this fucking line is obviously not coming from anyone who works really hard on art or creative endeavors constantly, or else you’d understand how fucking entitled it feels like it’s becoming
"well we dont really create but hey pay attention to MEEEE"
I will never understand people who say this shit.
What is so wrong about wanting to hang out with people who you have things in common with. Why is this such a “terrible thing that only stuck up artists do.”
People who go mountain climbing make friends with mountain climbers and they climb mountains together. No one cares.
Doctors talk with other doctors and go to conferences to exchange information. No one blinks an eyelash.
Artists follow each other on Tumblr- WOOOOOAOAAAH WHAT SNOBBY BITCHES WHY NOT INTERACT WITH THE REST OF US “NORMALS” AND SPEND ALL OF YOUR TIME GIVING US FREE ART AND ENTERTAINING OUR PERCEPTION THAT LOOKING AT YOUR WORK MAKES US FRIENDS SOMEHOW HMM? GOD ARTISTS ARE ALL STUCK UP.
