My friends mom is 4’9 and her dad is 6’5. Whenever she is mad at him, she grabs a chair to yell in his face. Everytime that happens, he’s laughing too hard for her to stay mad. They say it’s the only way they’ve been married for so long.

This part always gets me. The fact that separating the twins by death was so unthinkable that they appeared as one unit, that even Mrs. Weasley’s worst nightmare didn’t include the twins separate. The fact that Percy had disowned his family and hurt his parents emotionally, but Mrs. Weasley still loved him fiercely. The fact that her love knows no bounds and when she saw her family dead, Harry was without a doubt, a part of it.

#this whole fucking part sucks#and how Sirius just stares at the spot on the floor where Harry’s body was for several minutes#and I fucking hate this series
BECAUSE YOU KNOW HE’S FUCKING RELIVING GOING INTO THE HOUSE AND GODRIC’S HOLLOW AND SEEING JAMES DEAD ON THE FLOOR AND EVERYTHING JUST STOPS BECAUSE HE HAD SPENT 12 YEARS IN A CELL SEEING THAT IMAGE OVER AND OVER AND HE WAS SO GRATEFUL THAT HE’D NEVER HAVE TO SEE THAT IMAGE REAL EVER AGAIN AND THEN THIS HAPPENS AND I’M TOO EMOTIONAL TO CONTINUE I’M SORRY

i hate everyone

im not even an artist and these prices are hurting my feelings 

This is what I have to dig through every time I look for new jobs to apply for.

For non-artists, let’s give you a little perspective.

For me, an illustration takes a bare minimum of 6 hours. Mind you, that’s JUST the drawing part. Not the research, or the communications, or gathering information. Just drawing.

That’s if it’s a simple illustration.

My art deco or more detailed stuff can take 20+ hours each.

Even simple, cartoony things still take at least 3 hours.

Let’s go with the second one. 2 illustrations for $25. Figuring 6 hours each. 12 hours total, for JUST the drawings. That’s approximately $2.08/hour. 

Asking these prices is an insult. But what’s even more hurtful is there are people out there that will take these jobs. Which only encourages rates like this to be acceptable. And there are people who will try to say these are just what you have to do to get started.

I believed that. So my first coloring gigs were just $10/page. The day someone offered me $25/page for just flatting work, I realized just how wrong I’d been. I’m still not making the rates I’d like, but now I refuse anything below $25/page. Because there is value in my time.

In any standardized industry, even ones that pay piece rate over hourly, these numbers are criminal.

Do your fellow artists a favor. Never accept jobs like these. There are others that pay legitimate rates. Or at least closer to legitimate.

There’s a lot to take away from Emily Blincoe’s photo series "The Garden Collection" — the beauty of order, the many colors that surround us, the unique complexity of everything in nature … But more than anything, these images of grouped wildflowers are just very soothing and pretty to look at.
