An Open Letter

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 23, 2015, 1:39 AM
 











Dear Commenter Who Feels The Need To Tell Me They Like My Old Stuff Better,

I'm sorry that I've made a small fraction of your Facebook news feed a disappointment. Goodness knows I only spent the past fourteen years of my life honing my artistic skills so that I could please a bunch of strangers on the internet. It breaks my heart to think that I have ruined your day, as I have obviously done- why else would you feel the need to make such a comment? If the fact that my art no longer meets your expectations weren't such a serious blow to your emotional wellbeing, such a comment would only be inane and self-centered! And that's not you at all. You're a veritable saint of saints! The way you don't buy anything from me (teaching me not to be materialistic! so you), the way you treat me like nothing more than a faceless source of aesthetically-pleasing images for you to mindlessly consume and butcher for use as a profile picture (teaching me humility- such an inspiration!), it's a wonder you haven't been canonized.

So please, dear Commenter, rest easy- I will no longer inconvenience you with my insolent "experimentation". I couldn't bear living another moment without your one-word comments, your Facebook likes, your remorseless pilfering of my images. From now on, I will only paint things which you approve of, things which you are comfortable with and which make you feel good. Because that's what I'm in this for- to affirm to you that the world revolves around you. You've told me to jump, dear friend- now, I must ask how high.

Warmest, most saccharine regards,

Enamorte

P.S. - Just kidding. I'll paint whatever the fuck I want. Go choke on a cock.

Artist | Digital Art
Australia
I was born in small town Ohio, USA in 1983.

When I was 17, I started to take drawing seriously, and it began to consume me.

In 2008, I packed everything I could into two suitcases and moved to Australia to live with this guy.

There I remain, where art continues to mercilessly rule my life.
Interests

Frequently Asked Questions

- Why isn't -x image- for sale as a print? I'd like to buy one.

- I used to submit every new piece as a print, but since they sold so infrequently, I stopped doing it. However, if you are interested in purchasing something as a print, just click the "Request as Print" link to the right of the picture and I'll get it set up for you, no problem. (Okay, so this question isn't exactly 'frequently asked', but I thought I'd put it here, anyway =P)

- I know your journal says you're not taking commissions, but is that up to date? Would you make an exception?

- Whatever the little stamp at the bottom of my journal says, goes. I always keep that up to date. And no, if it says commissions are closed, I do not make exceptions to that. The truth is, I do not typically take on commissions at all. I do not mean to sound rude if I turn you down for a commission, but if I say I am not taking them, then I ask that you please accept that. Thank you.

- I am interested in selling your work as PSP tubes, would you be interested?

- I already sell tubes through Creative Design Outlet, so no.

- Can I post your art to my Facebook page/blog/Tumblr/other non-profit site?

- Sure, just don't edit the images in any way. That means no color changes, no resizing, and absolutely no cropping. Also, I do not allow the use of my images on commercial websites without paying a licensing fee. Contact me here on DA or email (enamorte92 at gmail dot com) if you wish to use my images in this way.

- I would like to make wallpapers out of your art to share them on -website-, would you allow that?

- As I stated above, I do not allow my images to be edited. If you are wanting to make them from my tubes which you've purchased from CDO, then you need only follow the terms of use provided on their site. Other than that, I must say no.

- Can I tube -x image-? It will only be for my own use and I promise I'll give you credit.

- NO, absolutely not. I already offer tubes through CDO. If the piece you want to use isn't there, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

- Would you mind if I got some of your artwork as a tattoo?

- For the most part, sure, I don't mind. There are some pieces which are rather personal to me that would prefer you not (mainly just my Amethyst Eyes stuff), but as for the rest, go for it.

- I would like to enquire about licensing your work for use on my product/s, would you be interested?

- I can't answer that off hand, as it really depends on what the product is, but please note that I will not offer my images for sale in digital form. My work is currently already licensed through:

Creative Design Outlet (Paint Shop Pro tubes)

Heaven and Earth Designs (cross stitch charts)

-Thanks for reading. :)
