"...if your drawings are the best the e-book and zine world have to offer, I weep for them. The same goes for the zines that are desperate enough to buy your drawings."
Well, if the editors of zines that publish my cover artworks and illustrations are desperate, those customers who purchase print-on-demand merchandise featuring my artworks and designs must also be pretty damned desperate. Funny thing is, with all the stuff I've sold internationally, there must be quite a few desperate customers all over the world! (I sell merchandise featuring my artworks and designs internationally through several PoD stores, and I do so fairly regularly.)
Any wonder why I don't pay much heed to what my critics have to say about my art? They're so silly, it makes me laugh. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
Anyway, every so often, I'm reminded that there are certain people in the SF&F world, whether they be SF&F writers, or fans and/or friends of SF&F writers, or just fans of SF&F in general, who seem to derive great pleasure out of tearing others down. It's rather pathetic.
