I really can understand where the anger is coming from, don’t misunderstand. I can see how changing the race of a character on a shirt is both very hurtful and extremely offensive. I do understand and if that is what had happened know that I would have been right a long side all of you. But, that isn’t what happened in this case. I drew John in as the precious little tan boy he is in my head and it’s obvious the browns just didn’t transfer through as nicely as I’d hoped. Tavros’ colors are a bit wonky. Dave isn’t the little pale kid with little freckles. You cant even really see Bro in the sword (huge bummer, I thought I was being clever).
The colors just didn’t come through well in some parts, they just didn’t, it happens. I still think it is a very good representation of what I drew, though. I think it is very beautiful and I am proud to call that my shirt. I just really hate for all of this anger and hurt to come from something that wasn’t even actually there in the first place.
Here is is! I wanted to put everyone worried about the white washing at ease. As you can see, no tampering and no white washing! It so colorful and beautiful!
I hope all of you who buy it will send me a picture of you wearing them. :D
and here we have assurance from the creator of the gorgeous design you see on that shirt that the art was transferred faithfully in the printing process. now maybe everyone can stop squabbling over perceived offense found in filtered instagram shots and actually enjoy this wonderful art.
Letting someone who you really care about fall asleep on you is probably the most rewarding thing ever. Feeling them safe and sound in your arms while you gently caress their hands and their hair and mouth is really amazing.
Audrey is so underrated. How can you not love her?
I have a love-hate relationship with this movie. On one hand it’s got awesome PoC characters who defy racial and gender stereotypes. It also discusses colonialism and how people tend to destroy indigenous cultures to obtain land and resources (which is why the crew ultimately decided a to pretend they never found Atlantis because they don’t want anyone else to try and destroy the culture). But on the other hand, the whole plot is that Atlantis needs a white, cishet man to save it from extinction and for some reason he understand their culture and language better than they do.
