LOOK AT ALL THIS PORN

Journal Entry: Sat May 3, 2014, 12:37 PM

This is my FULL TIME JOB, and I depend on your support and generosity to make ends meet! I don't believe in subscriptions, paywalls, or premium content. Those suck. Everyone should be able to enjoy my work if they want, and support me on their own terms if they'd like to! All of my work is free, and I live off of prints, merch, and PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT content, available at my website below!

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.

Honestly I don't watch you because you draw porn.:lol: It's more to it than that.xDI seen some really badly drawn porn before.;/ Your art is very well done and it looks very professional.It must be a lot of work if you have two jobs.Oh my goodness that must be stressful.That being said.I watch you because of your style and the way you draw.

Also I watch your streams when I can catch them and have the time.You have some interesting points about art.I actually learned quite a bit and I thank you for that. :) I consider you as an artist.

A very good one at that.Even though some of the stuff you draw isn't my cup of tea.I sometimes think it is odd a little lol If you consider yourself more as a business man I guess that's fine.I was honestly surprised to see this written in your journal.However you have made some very good points.Thanks for sharing.I'll continue to watch you.You are a huge inspiration to me.

If blurry photos of nothing counts by many people as an art. I don't see why tits and ass is not an art.

Whether it is for Business or Pleasure art is art. Regardless on your objective or your own personal feelings you are drawing art which makes you an artist regardless on whether your artwork is good or bad. I find your art great its colorful and imaginative too and those who speak out against it are fools for even trying to say your work is not art.

No one can bring down the value of art as it does not have a predetermined value to begin with even if it has a price tag.

I've studied art and the artists at my university have made more offensive stuff than pictures of butts and boobs and they all have a degree in art now.

this makes like no sense. It doesn't matter what you like to draw or whether or not money is your goal, anything that takes creativity and talent is art, whether it be music, illustration, painting, etc. Just look up the definition of art.

I don't really see the point of trying to pass something as "art". Something being artsy or not has little to do with the enjoyment you get out of it, so I couldn't care less about what art is. There's what I like and what I dislike.

I think this (in summary, not quite specific to any area of this journal) is completely backwards in concept.  Artwork is supposed to mimmick real life, therefore anything that happens in real life can be considered artwork if replicated through non-physical reenactment means - paper, film, visual, audio, etc - in other words, if you're not physically acting it out in some practical way (going to the fridge to get icecream), it can be considered artwork.  Therefore porn, whether people like it or not, can be, will be and IS artwork on any level.  Disagree if you ("you" as in speaking to everyone) may, I don't give a shit about opinion here - objective reasoning - that is, holding no bias towards or against something due to sensibilities or misgivings - would state that based on art's sole reliance on depicting real life and what's in reality, anything produced creatively is art....  Or did you really think the camera angles during porn shoots were just random, uninspired, and haphazard?

People make me sick with their shameless abuse of displaying their sensibilities and modesty - like being offended is ever an acceptable argument for why something shouldn't be in or what should be considered artwork.  It's artwork.  You don't like that fact?  Too fuckin' bad.  Porn is and can be objectively considered art.  So long as objectivity is the judge (and it is the only end all be all) and it should be, opinions don't matter.  Case closed.

Ahhh Slug, don't listen to those guys! You have a dedicated fan-base and are successful as an artist and those are very high feats in on of themselves. And they can't say you have no art in your work, your ability to pick colors and create the smoothest, thinnest lines astounds me, I have been trying to figure out what formula you use when selecting lol Whatever formula that is, you know how to make art that appeals, and in this society that is pretty much what matters. Other artists might get miffed if they work hard and cannot get the following even if they deserve it. They will take their white hot fury of a thousand suns on you in that case, they want something to lash out on, and they see you and BAM, raaaage. Well, I say to those artists, change your strategy until you find something that works, promote! do more! The market is exhaustive, complex and finicky and not even i have found the correct key to it, but it can be done. 
You are kind of like a Digital Image Engineer ( and yes, there is art in what you do, or else it would be a string of code lol). You can tell that you have learned your instrument (Photoshop) and you well...use it! Sure you draw ecchi and tits and ass and anthro and anime goodies, but to make that anatomy look appealing, in a stylized or exaggerated form, it is an art. It is decided proportions and whatnot, it is not perfect but that is a type of art. There is no such thing as soul-less art, it is all a craft that you dedicate time and energy and heart to.
A scientist can make a cure for cancer, but if he/she never shows it or makes it known and keeps it to themselves, does it matter?
Keep on keepin' on and doing your Slug thang and ignore the haters.
