okay so you may or may not have seen me posting on here about potentially getting hired to do concept art for a guy who’s opening his own restaurant and his friend/business partner who works in film and I have come to a decision but I really need advice on how to go about this decision
These things are best agreed upon before any sketches are made. One thing that illustrators put in contracts are called “kill fees” and are there for when projects are canceled so the artist can still be paid (though they’re usually for when the client cancels the project).
It sucks, but your best bet is probably to cut your losses and drop the project before a contract is drawn and things get messy.
I would respectfully decline the job. Say nothing about your personal identity, just that you aren’t comfortable, and try to arrange something where you get paid for the sketches done (expect resistance though).
For future reference, don’t do any preliminary sketches unless you’re guaranteed some type of compensation. If they want to see samples of your work, direct them to your portfolio. If they insist on you doing sketches for them for free, that’s a red flag. Either you won’t be paid, or getting paid will be a huge hassle.

This week on "Tumblr: Why the Website You Know and Love Is A Fucking Joke"
What the shit
How can you be plantkin and Asian on the inside? Like, what, you’re a polysexual Laotian cactus?
And being a plantkin just blows my mind. Like your transiness has become SO much that you are trans-kingdom. Like, brb, I’m gonna be a viruskin now. Wow.

"Not all homophobes are bad people!"
Yes they are. They are and I hate them
While we’re at it, just think of all the wonderful racists you must be depriving yourself of.

"Because people ask why we’re not friends anymore."
There are ALWAYS going to be poisonous people in your life. Sometimes they’re hiding in plain sight.
*points* This? This is part of why I dislike that Sullivan piece on friendship. BECAUSE THIS IS ALSO REAL. This is stuff that happen with “friends”. Pretending otherwise isn’t just no-true-Scotsmanning, it means that shit like #10 continues: that kids don’t know to look out for toxicity and abuse in their friendships as well as their romances. (I feel bad for my mother and all the terrible crap she watched “friends” put me thru because I believed in the sacred eternity of Friendship.)
I once had a friend who pretty much burned through dating almost all of the guys in our group of friends. I liked one and she told me he had would never date me (and implied it was because of my weight). I found out later it was because she was trying to pursue him.
We ended up dating a couple of years later and turned out we had liked each other for quite a while. I just never said anything because I believed her.
There was another one of our friends she dated, she fought with all the time. I first met him while they were dating and we were instantly friends. She threatened to kill me if I ever dated them. (We never did, we were just friends).
She also tried to hit on one of our gay friends and tried to start drama when I hung out with him.
She slept with another one of my friends while talking crap behind his back (I didn’t find out about the sleeping together part til way later).
She then got hostile with me when all of these people started wanting to hang out with me and not her. Eventually everyone was done with her.
On a side note: I ran into her not too long ago and she’s huge. Now I am 10000% against fat shaming and am normally not that catty, but considering I almost missed out on one of the most important relationships of my life because my supposed best friend had me convinced I was too fat for anyone to find me attractive, I took a RIDICULOUS amount of pleasure in the fact that she got fat.
The dating drama was just a small portion of the shit she put me through. So good riddance.

Because if you hate them, I hate you.
D: oh my
I know everyone thinks this is cute, but it’s really fucking unhealthy for the cats. Cats aren’t supposed to get this big. This is like taking a greyhound and feeding it until its the same weight as a mastiff. I know it’s common for people on tumblr to just post a long, mostly copied editorial on the subject, but it’s quicker to just link to someone who has already done so: http://pets.thenest.com/dangers-overfeeding-cats-11346.html
Also that second cat’s head is about 1/32 of its own body. How is that cute or in any way beneficial to the cat?
Even past health problems, it’s a quality of life issue. Cats also like to jump, climb, and groom themselves. Putting on that much weight makes it really hard for them to do those things.
