Artist Rants: Art Shaming

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 23, 2015, 11:33 AM

So a good friend of mine creates some amazing Gotham fanart, and her latest work just so happens to be my favourite so far! Would you like to see it? I'll bet you do, you're here for the art aren't you?

Pretty neat, huh? I am currently addicted to the Gotham TV series and Misses_Van_Damn is among my favourite artists around so I implore you to check her out! I may be biased because I consider her a sister to me :meow:

Now I get if people aren't into the fandom. I'm okay that it may not be everyone's type of art. Heck. Believe it or not, some people aren't even into art. (Hard to believe, right?) But in the end, you gotta admit, it took talent, time, and hard work to come up with a piece like that.

Now here, ladies and gentlemen, is what gets me.

tweet2 by MarichescaArt

It's like having a three-year-old playing around in bitmap paint, doesn't it?

As of now I absolutely REFUSE to give out the name and the handle of whomever did this, but feel free to search google/twitter for this. As an artist, I am repulsed, and as a friend of the original artist, I am offended. You can't get away with this if you did this to the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Or graffiti-ed one of Damien Hirst's sculptures. So why do it??

"Oh Anna you silly silly girl! It's Photoshop! It's not like you damaged the original and the artwork is ruined forever!"


THE POINT IS: Why would a person intentionally deface someone else's hard work?

It's the internet. That's why.

We love our anonymity on the internet. We can chat with someone half way across the world, say what we want, and log out without suffering any repercussions in real life. Getting some heat? Just easily create a new account and enter your virtual life like a newborn baby. The majority of us are so warped in this idea that we don't want to take responsibility for something that was said anonymously.

Don't like something? Talk shit about it! Isn't that the internet's golden unwritten rule? *insert sarcasm here*

"Freedom of speech! It's my account, I can do what I want!"

Personally, I couldn't care less what you do on your account. I don't care what your likes are, if you like digital over traditional, SPN over Gotham, Xbox over Playstation, or if you believe unicorns are real. I don't give a crap. But that doesn't give you the right to trample and make a mockery on someone's work.

Would YOU like it if you had your proud work/photo/art for the world to see and some random dude drew dicks on it?

If you come across a piece of work you didn't like, would YOU vandalize it just to make a point that you didn't like it? 

"It's like you said, it's the internet. You shouldn't take things personally."

We are people. People have feelings. Not everybody can turn them off on a whim. And if you can, there's a slight chance something is very wrong with you...

"But Anna! I was being expressive!"

No. That's downright rude and immature no matter what you call it. Expressing oneself shouldn't involve harming another.

"Now you're just being a bully, telling me what I can or cannot do!"

Standing up for my friends and for what I believe in does not make me this. And I believe it's the smallest things that can affect us so.

Whatever happened to common sense? What ever happened to being respectful? When did we suddenly become children the moment we log in?

How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.

After I post this, I'm letting go of this subject as I feel like I've vented out what I needed to say, and hopefully never think of that "desecrator" (is that even a word?) again.

Let me know down in the comments what you think about this rant or if you think otherwise, I would love to hear what you think.
