6/4: ...this image is five horizontal bars of solid color, and some bright soul suggested it should be flagged as mature content. No! No, it does not! The fact that gay people exist is suitable for general audiences, including children! Go away, anonymous would-be flagger. Sit alone for a while and think about your life choices. 6/1: Happy Pride Month! I moved a bunch of NSFW Leif & Thorn art into storage -- but if you had it favorited, don't worry, you can still find it on the website. 3/30: All Gumroad purchases on April 4 will be fee-free! That means all proceeds go to the creator if you order a copy of Leif & Thorn volume 1...o
Had to go through more than 3500 favorites to find my first -- posted 15 years ago. (Sooo glad I figured out how to turn off infinite scroll on the favs page first.) #ShowYourHeart
Calling all Sailor Fanartists
Voting is on for the Sailor Senshi Next Generation contest!  Click on through and vote for your 2 favorites =) If you draw Sailor Moon fanart, or know someone who does, we could use your help! I'm currently the main graphics-maker at Sailor Headcanons on Tumblr. We post user-submitted headcanons about everything to do with the Sailor Moon universe -- silly or serious, major or minor, past or present or future. They get posted on nice little graphics, like so: Most of the backgrounds are official SM art -- screenshots, manga scans, merchandise, what have you. And I try to avoid recycling art for multiple headcanons. You can see how, even

Hey there! I just wanted to say hello real quick. We've been internet friends for over fifteen years! I'm so proud of the work you've done and how you utilized your budding writing skills from Sailor Neopets into so many wonderful LGBT works. I love to see Kara Lynn pop up in your works, and how she reminds me of some of my best times as a teenager. Happy Pride and good for you!

Well, I have good news to bring in return: this is actually a misunderstanding of the TOS!

It goes around every year or so. I've known about it (and why it's wrong) for a while.

That section only gives DA the rights to use and modify your work on DA (for example, to produce thumbnails and show them in search results), and in promotional materials (for example, to make a "join DA to follow the artists who created these great pictures" post, or maybe to print a brochure).

It does not allow them to sell the license to your art to other companies (like Hot Topic). It definitely doesn't let them use your art to advertise any random non-DA thing (like the KKK).

The confusion seems to have started in 2014, when somebody took a piece of fanart from DA and got it sold on a shirt at Hot Topic. But that wasn't a legal thing that DA licensed. It was art theft -- and people who steal art from DA are just as willing to steal it from Twitter, Instagram, or any other place I could post.

I'm glad you like my art, and that you're concerned about artists being treated right! But this situation is actually fine, and DA is as safe as it can be, I promise.
