I’ve been getting a lot of complaints from people saying they don’t like all the “feminism” and “SJW” messages that I’ve been putting into my comics lately. They want me to just make comics that are fun and don’t have political meanings or messages behind them.

Alright... I can get behind that. I understand that sometimes reiterating yourself on your political points can get a bit tiring, especially when you don’t yourself marinate in social justice issues 24/7. No problem!

Except... I haven’t really been doing that. Like, at all. These are the latest 27 comics and Illustrations I’ve made:

JuggerNOT by TomPreston Historical Reenactors by TomPreston Long Live WuKo by TomPreston The Metrics by TomPreston Splatoon by TomPreston Get It Back or Geek Out Trying by TomPreston Skyrim - Resource Management by TomPreston SYAC - Seen The Light by TomPreston SYAC - The Answer Is There Isn't One by TomPreston SYAC - Mascotchistic by TomPreston SYAC - BINGO by TomPreston NSYAC - Time After Time by TomPreston NSYAC - Winging It by TomPreston NSYAC - Crafty by TomPreston NSYAC - Dirty Fingers by TomPreston NSYAC - Premature Departure by TomPreston NSYAC - Less Is More by TomPreston NSYAC - Why Ask Why by TomPreston NSYAC - Listening In by TomPreston NSYAC - Culture Clash by TomPreston NSYAC - Stay Frosty by TomPreston NSYAC - Bummed Out by TomPreston NSYAC - Savant by TomPreston NSYAC - There There by TomPreston NSYAC - Easy as Pie by TomPreston Skyrim - Giant Golf by TomPreston Samus V Ridley by TomPreston

Of that batch only 3 of the SYAC strips could be called “political” in nature because they dealt with GamerGate. The rest? Not really about SJW, feminism, or any sort of agenda whatsoever. Now on the flip side I HAVE been making a lot of journals about social issues because, well, it’s my journal and I like to talk about stuff that’s going on. If my journals bother you, please unsubscribe from them and just follow my art. DA allows that choice for a reason.

So I would kindly like to ask people who are praising me for “going back to regular comics” to knock it off. I’ve been doing regular comics this whole time. And I shouldn’t have to make a journal like this to point that out, either...
  • Mood: Grumpy
  • Listening to: I don't care - I ship it!
  • Reading: Twitter
  • Watching: Doctor Who Season 8
  • Playing: Bayonetta 2 Demo
  • Eating: Subway Sandwiches
  • Drinking: Decaf. Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.

Honest question time. Would any of my fans truly be despondent if I turned off all comments on my artwork?

The guy has many followers, most of which are young kids. If you saw his SYAC comics you would see for yourself he's often use the victim card, blaming others for his mediocrity, controversy and so on. This can lead to brainwash the kids. Some people just care about art education and they will not tolerate with this just because he want to look cool in front of those kids.

Not to mention his delusional attitude and hypocrisy and these two are just another whole chapter in the book!

See this is what I am talking about. I just don't see the stuff this guy is seeing After all in the SYAC you have pointed out mistakes you have made and the importance of listening to your critics and teachers. Also you have never uses the victim card outside of making fun of trolls like this guy who seem to take those jokes way to seriously.

so sad I can´t compliment all your amazing work on your deviations but oh well, great job and really like the problems you bring up, I´m a female indie game developer and so many of your strips illustrates issues that needs to be brought up to make the business mature. Not sure what more I wanted to say, big big fan! and if you have time/feel like it check out our latest game on Kickstarter,… we got Oculus and horror*_*

There's a SYAC comic you did that I'm having trouble finding, it's of you showing off your artwork to a bunch of different people IRL, and then getting nothing but "You suck!" when you post it online. Do you remember what it was called?
