Hi :) you commented on a post that I reblogged like 20k others. I understand how not getting credit for work would be frustrating. But that being said, when an artist post their work online without making it clear who did it then it's no ones fault but their own when their work gets the recognition it deserves but they don't receive credit. Don't bash my blog for reblogging beautiful work & if you find the artist who did it I'd be happy to give them credit, unfortunately you probably can't.

I had to reread this three times because I couldn’t believe someone could be so appallingly stupid.

Let me find the post in question. Here it is!

Huh. The person who originally posted it. Maybe we should be decent and click on that link, huh? Especially since it’s a post that’s missing the artist credit. It’ll take you to my blog!

Wait. What’s that?

Oh my god! It’s my art! Hahahaha who knew?! 

"When an artist post their work online without making it clear who did it then it’s no ones fault but their own when their work gets the recognition it deserves but they don’t receive credit." Besides being blatantly untrue in this specific circumstance, this is incredibly ignorant. Let me ask you, what is the point of your work gaining recognition if you, as the artist, doesn’t receive any credit? This is like when a store overseas steals your designs and starts printing iPhone cases. Great, now hundreds of people have your artwork with them - and you don’t get a single dime. Because let’s be honest, art is fun, but it’s also a livelihood. When you recognise the work and ignore the artist, you are killing them.

Fortunately for you, even when you are unable to LITERALLY JUST CLICK ON THE ORIGINAL SOURCE AND FIND THE ARTIST, google also has this incredible thing where you can search via image.

If you weren’t able to do it this time, I can forgive you, because in this case my image has been stolen so many times and reposted without any credit that it’s impossible to find the original artist - USING GOOGLE. BECAUSE YOU CAN STILL JUST CLICK STRAIGHT THROUGH TO MY ORIGINAL POST. 

"Wow, Lucy, way to overreact. Calm down." No. I refuse. There are so many people like you that think it’s okay to ignore an artist and focus only on their work. You admire the beauty and push the person who spent time and effort into a corner. I didn’t work hard trying to get my name out there only to have it deleted off my post.

I know artwork reposting / stealing / uploading without credit happens all the time. But you don’t need to be a part of it. Just spend ten seconds and try to find the artist. Their name is so important.

A member of the African Choir, London Stereoscopic Company, 1891. From The Guardian:
The African Choir were a group of young South African singers that toured Britain between 1891 and 1893. They were formed to raise funds for a Christian school in their home country and performed for Queen Victoria at Osborne House, a royal residence on the Isle of Wight. At some point during their stay, they visited the studio of the London Stereoscopic Company to have group and individual portraits made on plate-glass negatives. That long-lost series of photographs, unseen for 120 years, is the dramatic centrepiece of an illuminating new exhibition called Black Chronicles II.

Mule vs Mountain Lion

A couple from Montana were out riding on the range with their dogs, the man with a rifle and his wife with the camera that took these amazing shots, when a mountain lion decided to stalk the dogs.

The man got off his mule and decided to fire a shot into the air to scare off the mountain lion, but before he could the lion charged towards the dogs hoping for a piece of them. That’s when things got interesting

The mule decided he wanted a piece of the lion and snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. It basically stomped it to death and bit it a few times to make sure it was really dead.

The mule then walked back to where the stunned couple were standing and stood there ready to continue as if this crazy situation hadn’t just gone down.
