Port of Zelda: 2nd haven

I like the color purple, and soft rainy days. The clear sky after rain is the most beautiful. Calpico water is my favorite drink. I love to draw. I'm a graphic novel artist. I love my family, especially my mother and sister. They allowed me to pursue my dream and so I'm always grateful for their existence and selfless support. I also love my niece Yaya and nephew Kadyn, for they are the most precious. (although most of the time they are the major distraction...)

I wasn’t mad before…but I am now.

someone please read these and tell me if I’m the one who needs to take in an advice…

o..kay…?
you want professionalism, but you cannot afford to pay….
and you state it so “matter of factly”…

I took the time to reply and added a friendly advice to explained why it’s NOT a good idea to ask…

I think this graph sums it up nicely…

You did the right thing. I don’t understand why this person thought you came off as mad, especially since you did the good-bad-good news method. The only reason I can think of is they don’t know you very well.

Here’s the thing- regardless of whether or not this person THINKS it’s rude, it’s still rude because that is how it came across to you (and any other sane artist. It’s actually rude to whoever they ask this of, regardless of whether they’re insulted or not, but that’s rant territory)

If you do decide to respond to such ‘requests’ in the future, I think you have the right idea of what to say, but maybe make it shorter. ~1 paragraph.

Here’s hoping you don’t get more of these…

Thanks everyone! I read all the comment and reblogs. I got a lot of good advice (and kind words that cheered me up) here on tumblr ^u^

I’m not good at this but ‘ll try to choose my words carefully the next time I express myself online… I didn’t know by saying “you demand free work” would sound harsh. That’s just what I felt from reading their proposition. It sounded demanding to me, because the way this project was described like a actual paying job, but then it just bluntly says, as “Other info” (as if this isn’t important) “we cannot afford to pay”.   If they can’t pay, then at least make it sound like a friendly invite to their project, or make the artist feel like you’re asking them for a favor… Don’t make it sound like a job where you state “what we look for in an artist: someone with professionalism”.  It’s upsetting that they didn’t realize that their own words sounded harsh and disdainful to the artist.

Requests like this one… I’ll just do a simple “no” next time instead of wasting my time trying to help them understand reality.

you can also find the answer in my F.A.Q~

I took the time to reply and added a friendly advice to explained why it’s NOT a good idea to ask for free work like this, because the person asked politely. (also because this is not the first time I got a kid asking me for free work. Most of the time they just honestly don’t know you can’t ask for free art like that, and they apologize for making such request after I explained to them)

I didn’t expect the person to apologize like others…I was truly just hoping they could soon find a good artist for their project.

but..this is what I got as a reply…

WHAT is with the assumption of me being mad/ annoyed/ irritated?? 
Just because I didn’t throw in a smiley or emoticon?

I wasn’t feeling any of those when I typed the reply, but I’m now as I type this. I get ignorant comments sometimes, but this is the first time ever that a reply make me feel so… UPSET!!  (or maybe it’s because I’m so stressed out these days…Orz)

I’m honestly rather surprised that they found artists who agreed to work for free, but everything I stated was still true.

Art schools and professional artists teach student artist “do not sell yourself short”, and “don’t work for free” (of course charity work is different), but no one really educate the public not to ask for free work and respect artists for what they do. 

gah….I shouldn’t have wasted my valuable time to even reply… 
I should have done what most artists would do…ignore such request.

I guess that’s what I’ll do in the future.  T__T

…listening to KK’s radio.

Koichi talked about how the number of Pi contains everyone’s birthday dates, and used Tsuyoshi’s birthday for example. 

so I went and searched… find your birthday in Pi
some people may think this is no big deal…but I thought it’s really amazing. O_O

and then Tsuyoshi said that’s like everyone in the world is connected in this great ‘circle’. (this is totally Tsuyoshi-style-thinking… XD)

the number pi is even more fascinating to me now…@__@

Ko-chan knew that recently, I think.
Because ko-chan did the show about science ( it’s called “ちょこっとサイエンス”) in Japan.
(It’s NHK’s program, like Tsuyoshi’s ” Kokoro-mi” and new drama.)
And this thing was showed up in the show. :)

I think it’s cute that ko-chan talked about his new knowledge thing to Tsuyoshi (almost everything, every time. lol) ;)

Sorry for my English (;_;)

ah! I know that show ^  ^ 

I saw the episode with the refrigerator that refuse to open unless you smile to it.  XD (and the scary purikura …=u= )

yes~ I think it’s cute too ^__^. He is always eager to share new things he learned with Tsuyoshi~ although most of the times it’s useless trivia and random facts that you can survive just fine without knowing … XD

I actually like learning random fact and useless trivia though…OvO;

You can draw on the windows at that cafe? :D

I think they erase everything once every week or something…OvO

Maru meets a “friend”… XD

went to cafe Wahfles with mom and sister 

they ate and had coffee while I doodled =u=;

[Maru waiting for his breakfast at 6 am]

Next Wednesday marks the 4th week Maru has been in our family.
(and he already got used to his meal schedule)

Please help raise the awareness or spread the word, "Don’t buy baby bunnies as gift for Easter". They don’t always stay that cute little teacup size and they’re supposed to last about 10 years with proper care. (I didn’t even know people actually buy real rabbits on Easter as ‘presents’ for kids until I began looking into bunny related information…I was rather shocked! Don’t be the irresponsible and unwise person. If you really want to have a pet bunny, try adopt one. There are many bunnies waiting for a loving home at shelters and adoption centers. 

I’m doing my best to care for this one, which almost magically appeared at our front door….=__= (where Maru came from is going to be a mystery to us forever.)

Many say he is lucky to find us, but I feel lucky too… because he is a really well behaved and smart bunny!  

I just hope he’d let me groom him soon…Orz 
I’m so concerned that he’d get hairball in his tummy. Unlike cats, rabbits can’t vomit up hairballs…and they’d get blockage in their digestive system which leads to serious health issues …>__<

my sister kept saying I’m paranoid and worry too much. do I really O_O?
