Ever since I started publishing my happy abortion card I have been getting conservative hate art created about my art. Essays, letters, Facebook arguments, and articles have all been written about me or to me regarding my art.
I have largely been offline, for the last three or four years. It’s been hard for me to figure out how to make art and write about making art when I have such a hard time with my hands. What I mean is, I have fibromyalgia, and I get a lot of pain in my hands especially when I use them to make art. So I’ve had to pick and choose what art to make.
I made these posters for a class last year and posted them around town. 3 people recognized me from them. Outside of that, after I posted them my life remained completely unchanged.
Since my health has become my primary occupation, I stopped googling myself. Assuming now that I was a cripple my chance at Fame had died. But now that I’m trying to sell the snarkycards book I’m googling myself again. And I found this. I’m kind of excited about being a meme.
And -just like always-I don’t really care if somebody hates my art or me. I just want them to talk about me when I’m not around. I just want to fill their brain. I want my art to have such an impact on their lives they go home and they make art about it. So finding this on Reddit really made my day. It’s bizarre, liberal media doesn’t seem to care about me very much. I mean, I think I’ve been accepted by liberal media, but they don’t obsess about me the way conservative media does. Which is odd because I don’t think conservatives are my people….
At the end of the day it doesn’t matter whether you’re a conservative or a liberal I’m always excited when someone becomes obsessed with my work. Thanks Reddit!!
