Rant about the lupisvulpes community
Disclaimer Nothing here is to cause drama or directed at anyone specific, i want people to be AWARE of their actions and how shitty people treat each other in this community. This isn't against Lupis herself i respect her as an artist and she hasn't done anything bad to hurt people etc. This isnt hate on lup, this is more of a rant of her community. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE WITHIN THIS COMMUNITY. Please note: this isnt gonna be fancy shit, im bad with grammar and writing im like 2 yrs old By far this has been one of the worst communities i have ever came across, all the people in this community are so hateful and greedy and with absolutely back

 I will participating in Alternative Space week-end at the City Wide Open Studios in New Haven Connecticut.  I doubt anybody who will see this is or will be anywhere near there, or could have attended with so little notice, but I feel I should mention it anyway.  Theoretically it will be a pleasant to bearable experience.  And unlike what I linked to in the previous journal, the display is actually mine and I can personally endorse, explain and be held accountable for it.

Congratulations! It's always so exciting to show artwork in public events. :-D I hope your art was well received!
Out of curiosity, did you have to write an artist's statement or manifesto of sorts? And if so how do you describe your works and your fascination for anthropomorphic animals?

These events are often more about presentation of the exhibition space as much as the art itself, and I think I have improved in that category, so overall the situation was slightly better than previous attempts.  Not as much as I would like, so I must continue to work on that.

Most viewers will not say "hey, a lot of these pictures have creatures instead of people!"  I think internet subcultures have exaggerated to themselves their differences from "normal" artists.
In fact my fascination is with imps more than animals.  I did have a printed document similar to the first part of that in a binder at the member exhibit that had one piece of art from each participant, but not at my table on either day.
I prefer to let the art communicate its own message.  Some artists at these things thrive on talking in the third person and trying to sound profound and like they have conquered life, but I come across as insincere when I try, and hate myself for it, so I try to be honest, foremost.

I definitely agree. On internet it seems everything needs to belong to a precisely defined genre and have a set of rules written up front, but from my own experience in art exhibitions that's not what people actually want, at least in the case of imaginative art. They prefer to be surprised and to come up with their own interpretation. (Usually people see my art as a type of surrealism or magical realism, and in fact they are both legitimate interpretations, not only for my art but for anthropomorphic art in general.) Unfortunately I have to come up with written explainations by request of the people hosting the exhibitions and it's always a bit hard to write something simple and honest so I'm always interested to hear how other artists introduce their anthro art. Thank you for the input!
