Pay-What-You-Want's like a donation, but you also get cool art,
sketches, wallpapers, and other stuff! Which is better than a donation!
I think it’s up to the viewer to decide what is and isn’t art. I don’t think of myself as an artist. I just want to draw tits and ass and sell out as hard as I can to as many people as possible with as little effort as possible. If I have deeper goals, they aren’t art related. At best they’re business related, as I believe everyone can make a living with time and effort. Illustration is just a technical thing.
But that’s just what I think man. If you think something is art, it’s art. You’ve got just as much right to define it as anyone else. It’s a personal thing. If you look at the impossible boobs I drew and think it’s good art, awesome. If you think it’s bad art, like, I feel bad for you man. Because I don’t even think it’s art to begin with, and I’m the fuck who drew it! It’s literally just sex appeal. Which some people think is art! I think it can be. But I’m not setting out to make it that usually. For me it’s just making my fans and supporters, whom I love dearly and depend upon completely, happy. I’ll work to better myself at what they want, whatever it is.
But since you think it’s art, and think it’s bad, it must be affecting you negatively, and that sucks bro. How cool would it be if there was a universal symbol for "This with zero artistic, emotional, or social intent, and for completely financial and publicity related purposes. Please do not promote this work in a positive or negative light if you believe it to have intrinsic artistic value put their by the artist. The artist assures you it does not, and that they have zero interest in necessarily contributing to the art communities or defining any sort of emotional or artistic statement. The artist also has no goals or plans to deviate from this purely technically defined career. If you speak out for, or against, this work, you will only further it’s intended purpose and success, which is simply to be shared and spread at any cost." Then you would know it’s pointless to attack it, as that only feeds into its intended purpose.
Yes, you can argue someone “like me” brings down the “value” of art. You can also argue that by “lowering” the “standard” level of “skill” that a “popular” artist should have, it helps “real” artists stand out. You know, cool guys and girls who spent tens of thousands of dollars on art school or have the “CREATIVE SOUL AND DRIVE” or whatever. Whatever the case, i just don’t care. I wanna draw and sell animu girls and make a livable wage. Which isn’t that different from any other supply/demand field. But it’s not art. Unless you want it to be art. Good or bad art. I don’t care. It only benefits me and “non-artists” anyway by bringing it up.
