We're in the home-stretch of my page archival. I announced in March that I would be archiving my page on October 19th, 2018. We're two days away from that date now and I felt it necessary to tell you all.
I will not be deactivating this account, but I will no longer be posting any new content on the specified date. The reason for this is because there has been an absence of response to my work and I don't see it necessary to post any more content to a blank audience. This platform is also going to ruin, as the new mods just take down content they don't like.
The whole point of sharing your art with other people is to see how they respond, and when you don't have a response, it becomes pointless to share it. The site also isn't really for people like me, as I don't like dealing with teen-y drama and over-the-top social justice warriors. It makes me feel like an awkward adult surrounded by high-school kids. I simply can't call this website an "art" website because the definition of art is the product of one's personal thoughts and creativity. Art is the exact opposite of censorship which is what this website seems to encourage, both through the content you post and the people you speak with.
I simply can't live in a dramatic hive-mind like this. I also need a place where I can truly express myself, because as some of you may know, I like to draw NSFW art, and that may have been what contributed to my downfall on this site. Isn't it ironic how people find freedom of expression disgusting? The moment you post NSFW art without shame, you're labelled as some kind of sexual freak people need to stay away from.
My art is currently posted in a private Discord server and it may stay that way. Because when I'm there, I'm there with people who let me be myself and have my own thoughts, opinions, and feelings. It's more artistic than this site will ever be unless this site pulls its head out of its corporate ass.
Good day to you all.
