Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to. I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.
I’m seeing a a bunch of fanart and gifsets of The Faults in Our Stars and another person is reblogging those ironic posts commenting on how pretentious Augustus Waters is and its a very strange experience.
Hold strong! Sadly these things happen, but they serve as reminders to cherish everything and every moment we have in this life. *hugs*
oh, thanks man! i meant that i really hope SHE doesn’t relapse but thanks for the support. :)
I don’t about how anyone else feels, but I felt like drawing my own. I feel like this more often than I want to, and I’m currently on the brink of just giving up altogether…it hurts like hell feeling left out of things or not being included, or just the feeling of being forgotten or ignored in general…I really want to just throw in the towel and abandon all ties to some people so I never have to feel this way…but I still have a small spark of hope somewhere that won’t let me quit no matter how much I’d really like to…so…I guess I’ll just wait and see..
how often on a daily basis do you wonder if you’re One Of Those Annoying People Who Cant Take A Hint and people only respond to you bc they feel obligated
Several times an hour.
