personal/art rant Show more
i keep seeing this take posted every so often that "art isn't a competition."
this is a world that unfortunately, includes predators and reactionary assholes. and usually, they end up being way too popular for my liking. i refuse to be second place to any of them. and it's probably sour grapes, but i am tired of hearing "gotta separate the art from the artist" and "no ethical consumption under capitalism" while i'm plugging away, NOT raping anyone, and getting nothing.
