The Crap Fairy

Published:

Description

Concept

No one truly knows what the Crap Fairy looks like.

Some people say she is a withered old hag, angrily telling you about all the ways you have failed. Others say she is a beautiful woman, arrogantly pointing out that you simply are not good enough. The last known encounter with her kind revealed a twisted, mud colored and misshapen ghoul that vomited when it viewed the artist's work and swore you made it ill.

Regardless of what incarnation you view.. beware the Crap Fairy when you draw. For she is full of lies and doubt, and lives off of your insecurities and uncertainties. Every time an artist says "My work is crap" another Crap Fairy gets it's wings. She finds artists, young and old, experienced and new, and each of them can become easy prey to her if they but listen to one, single whisper from her deceitful lips.

Luckily there is a simple cure. Pay her no mind. As the wise somk said... Ignore her. She's just a bitch.

Sidenote
Jana is going to help me make this dress. Yeah... that's a thing that's happening. Also for me? The crap fairy is not ugly or misshapen. She is all the things I look up to and admire, and the feeling of self doubt I get when I think about trying to attain those things. That I am not good enough for them.
