Shallow people keep judging my art.

:iconmngamojemo:
mngamojemo Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
I happen to find burning flags, all-Hitler orgies and the Chinese character for enlightenment aesthetically appealing, OK? So I combine them into pretty pictures, but all the comments I get are like, "why do you hate America", or "yeah Hitler was a major hottie", or "are you sure there's just one Chinese character for enlightenment?". God, people are so SHALLOW. Why can they not judge my art for what it IS, rather than by what these symbols allegedly represent? I don't believe anything at all. I'm pretty sure I'm not even thinking, let alone thinking of the so-called complex meaning behind symbols I appropriate. This isn't a secret plan to get you to look at my art for examples. I just lament the fact that people are unable to acknowledge my brilliant appropriation of things I don't care about.

I just had that happen to a thread I made in this forum as a joke. Somebody took it totally wrong and I won't be surprised if they try to twist what I say around no matter how I explain it.

Oh well.

If that one tattoo translating blog is any indication, nobody knows what the chinese character for enlightenment is. It's all just noodles and prostitution and complete nonsense.

I happen to find cute candy-colored sentient ponies to be a fast way of making money off of teenagers and manchildren with disposable income, OK? So I crochet pretty amigurumi of them, but all the comments I get are like, "lol My Little Pony sucks", or "bronies are losers", or "what are you, ten?". God, people are so SHALLOW. Just because all my recent deviations and favorites are pony-related doesn't mean I'm actually part of the herd. Why do people always assume things about me going by the evidence I display?

This totally isn't a secret plan to get you to look at my plushies.

Loki would be pretty expensive though, due to the cost of the materials and the months-long effort I put in getting all the little details in his outfit right :saddummy:

It's not that I don't want to part with them, it's that I already have. Both of them were given to contest winners.

If I had to make another one, I'd have to charge about $220 plus shipping.

I feel the same way when I walk down the street and people say I'm naked. I'm not naked, they just aren't brilliant enough to see the beautiful clothes I'm wearing.

It sucks to be misunderstood. :(

lol people are judging you? Of course they are. You are choosing to use controversial and upsetting images in your art. Just because it doesn't mean anything to YOU doesn't mean it doesn't mean something to everybody else. If you are posting pictures of burning US flags, then you should expect people to interpret it as hating America- just because you don't see it doesn't mean it isn't there.

It doesn't matter if you care about it or not, if the picture says something, then that's what it says.

They ARE judging your art for what it is.
