i just wanted to clarify some things
artists know the risk they are taking when they post their art online. people are inevitably going to take it apart, color edit it, flip it around or otherwise post it uncredited.
saying that an artist shouldn’t post their work if they don’t want it bastardized is probably the stupidest stance on this subject you could take. if all artists followed this line of reasoning, there would be no art on the internet.
when an artist posts their work, they are trusting you to enjoy it respectfully. and when you betray that trust either knowingly or unknowingly, it’s like saying the artist’s time, skills and thoughts aren’t worth anything.
you are NOT entitled to an artists work just because they decided to trust you enough to share it with you.
an artist is within their right to feel upset that someone has used their work in a way they never intended it to be used. they are within their right to ask for it to stop and not happen again.
just because it’s “bound to happen” doesn’t mean it’s any less deplorable.
calling out racism takes a backseat to calling out homophobia in a lot of cases tbh like nash grier has made explicitly racist vines where he acts out as a “ghetto” black woman with stereotypical mannerisms and no one bats an eye and then he says fag and yall wanna jump? what kind of pick and choose activism?
How is nobody talking about this cover? This is like the most epic cover ever. Not only does it show Elektra in a great light (both literally and figuratively), but it’s an awesome throw back to the fact that, before Elektra was an assassin, she was a ballerina, which has been brought up multiple times in the series so far. With all the controversy over how women are being portrayed on covers and all that, it’s amazing that people aren’t pointing to Elektra to see how it’s supposed to be done.
Things that matter. Pass ‘em on.
I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.
