Let's be clear, I don't really even log in anymore, I think that I'm not the same artist I was when I first join dA
When I first joined, I was 15, I was in high school, art was a hobby, and well, through all this years I've been studying art until I graduated in 2015, and since then I've been more or less being a professional artist, it hasn't been how I expected at all, actually, right now I'm even thinking about myself wanting to be a professional artist, the pressure the timing, and most important, you can't draw all you want, you have to make money of it, everything is always about the money. Through this years I also developed a strong political view, I don't wanna draw certain things, I want me art to follow some principles, I'm a feminist I don't want to draw sexist stuff, I'm a socialist, my art has to tell something, my art has to be a feeling, a story but not a product, I don't want to make fucking products put my ideas in stupid mugs and shirts, I want them to annoy the system not to follow it.
I miss drawing what I just wanted somehow, but what I want to draw right now is not commercial at all.
I got a job teaching languages to adult people who doesn't have it easy to access education and consequently, get better jobs, to me it's a great way to be able to share my knowledge and help others, which in my opinion is much helpful to society than selling stickers.
Even if I don't get much money I don't care, I prefer it over feeling all they I'm betraying myself
Not sure when I will delete this, but I will still be active on Instagram, and I'll also have my portfolio online if I ever want to work in interesting projects or do personal commissions for people, but my time in dA is over, thanks to everyone who supported me here ♡
