there are a bunch of questions on okc that if someone has answered a certain way, that’s a deal breaker.
some are obvious, like the one that asks you if having sex with someone against their will is ever acceptable. If you answer yes to that, obviously I’m gonna pass on you. or the one that asks if some human lives are more valuable than others. If they say yes to that one, I just close the page.
but the one that really ruins things for me, and the one that I just end up shaking my head at, is the one that asks if foreplay is necessary for good sex. If they say no to that, then they’re fucked. I’m done with them.
there are other questions like this too, but you guys get the picture.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

"There is a stigma in this country around women with jobs. So I want to start an organization that provides girls in the Congo with examples of women around the world who have balanced family and career. Most men in this country think it’s only about money. They think: ‘If I make enough money for us to live, then my wife should take care of the children.’ The common belief is that a woman who works is hurting her children. People don’t realize that children also gain from the knowledge and experiences of their mother."(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)

We snapped this near the U.S. Embassy and were harassed by the security there. They requested my camera to look through my photographs. I think the guard was impressed, but I was annoyed. Great times!
