Why “credit to the owner” is one of the shittiest things you can do to an artist.

gabbiness:

I see it on social media all the time. Someone posts art that they did not create, and below the illustration write; "credit to the owner", or makes an amv containing art, with no links or names to the original artists.

This is a really shitty thing to do and let me tell you why.

I work fulltime as a freelance artist. It’s really hard work, especially if you’re just starting out like I am (been doing it for a little more than a year).
You have to constantly share your art and advertise yourself to the world. Hunt work wherever you think you can find it.
There’s a lot of artists out there competing for work, and it’s a constant battle.

One of the most important things for a working artist is to be seen.
Getting an audience, getting people to share your art or talk about it. If the right people see your art, it could lead to work.

So if you post work by an artist, make sure to credit properly! Link to the artists dA/tumblr/blog/whatever. Zerochan and weheartis are not sources!

If you don’t know who made the art, look for the source! There’s a lot of different ways to do this!
If you still can’t find the original art, simply don’t post it.
Don’t. Post. It.

You might just want something ‘pretty’ to have on your blog, and you just “found the art on google!”, but don’t be lazy.
Look for the source and credit the hard work of the artist.

Not adding credit when posting other peoples art is robbing an artist of future work. As dramatic as it sounds, you’re killing the artist.

Actually, that is not the source, this is the source. It has more than 30k We Heart It notes, but you really have to dig to find the Spoonflower link and then on to the original artist, which is Jade Gordon.

Here are two new pieces of art I’ve created with patron support! You can also watch them being drawn!

If you pledge to become a Patron at any level $5 or above before the end of August, I will add you name to a hat and the name I draw will get free 8x10 prints that are hand gilt.

If you would like to order prints of The Hellhound, they can be found here.

If you would like to order prints of The Gatekeeper they an be found here and here or here.

P.S. I had to move my fundraiser because I couldn’t support recent activities engaged in by GoFundMe and WePay, so it is over here now.

Get Me Outta Here! | Indiegogo →

If you’re interested in supporting Jade’s overall fundraiser for the move, here’s the link! Otherwise, carry on with Patreon, commission requests, fabric purchasing, etc!

Updated because in light of what’s going on with GoFundMe, Jade’s free speech choice is to not support a business that will profit from racism (or because previously…).

The latest Patron supported release is a Civet paper doll! If you follow that link you can download the full print resolution, as well as a printable line art version you can color yourself!

I am also going to do a random drawing of Patrons at the start of next month alongside the release of two other Patron supported art pieces! If you support me on Patron for an amount of $5 or higher*, your name will be put into a hat and I will send the print set to the person drawn! The prints are hand gilt on 8.5x11 matte photo paper.

* If you pledge $1 up to 5 times, I can’t confirm it, it only shows me a single amount for your initial pledge, not how many times a month you individually will pledge (Especially while I’m doing it per single art piece, if I made 10 things in a month and yo pledged $50 each time… Patreon lets you set a maximum amount per month so you have control over what you mean to do.).

The fundraising progress, and why it is so urgent.

Another bit of art supported by folks via Patreon!

These are some drawings made of people I saw when I last ventured out. The one in full color is a person that I saw most briefly. I wasn’t sure how I felt about drawing someone who really was in that state of affairs - homeless, dirty, and having pieced together a strange garment to be wearing for a 90 degree day. Such a short glance, but she immediately occupied a weird space in my brain of questioning - real or unreal? Suddenly I felt a little more like the main character in the (temporarily titled) Unseen comic. I haven’t drawn it yet, but there’s a scene I have in mind I feel like I just lived.

Re: The fundraising, this is the background and log I’ve been keeping about what is happening right now and why things are so urgent.

Slightly ahead of schedule, here’s the latest page of the new comic and some preview stuff for other things I’ve put up on Patreon! If you want to see a variety of art from me sooner, or if you want bonuses like wallpaper and early behind-the-scenes content, please consider supporting my Patreon!

In case this comic is a new project to you, you can see a kernel of the universe by downloading the PDF here, and page 5 and 6 here and here.
