Anonymous said: I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but how do you find the confidence to make fanart? Whenever I try to draw fanart my art teacher says it's not real art and I always feel like a silly little girl with a crush who's wasting her time. So how do you get past the feeling like you're wasting your time or worrying that people are going to think you're doing something you're not allowed to do?
Do you think anyone ever tells boys that they’re not allowed to enjoy drawing or looking at pretty girls?
Do you think any art teacher in the history of art teachers ever told a young man that painting a female nude was a waste of time and not real art?
Oh honey, that’s just how old houses are. They settle. They sometimes creak or groan, or quietly weep, or demand blood sacrifice in voices that sounds like the fluttering wings of a thousand moths. It’s just the house settling. For whatever it can get. Go back to sleep.
