Deal With It by tohdaryl Deal With It by tohdaryl
Day 30 Challenge (finale): Something youd like to share with your followers or friends.

I'm tired of hiding behind masks. I'm tired of being in fear all the time.

Nobody should be discriminated or judged because of their sexuality. Nobody should be judged at all in the first place. If one should be judged, it would be the deeds of their actions, the work and support they contribute to society and the legacy they leave behind for future generations that could benefit from it.

So judge me as an artist, on my talent, on my profession, and the work I do. Not because of my sexuality.

Thank you, to all my friends, followers, fans, people who love my work and what I do. You are my reason to continue what Im doing till now. Love you all and please love one another.

A long time ago, you did a few commissions for me. My story had a gay couple in it and I remember you telling me that you didn't mind drawing them together, but that you were not comfortable drawing them, um... being a couple together. I was so bummed out that you felt that way, but I didn't say anything and I didn't bring it up again. I have to say, seeing this... there are no words for how happy I am for you. I didn't know then and I'm sure you don't remember me now, but I want you to know that I am proud of you for overcoming your fear and accepting yourself. :heart: ~Ash

That was amazingly touching.
Besides, gay people are always awesome ^.^ And so is your art!
its your decision of who you want to be in the life, no matter the sexuality thats just superficial.
your artwork is amazing! i always look forward to seeing more!
