Don’t Throw Away Your Markers

“This is just a quick and simple tip for artists who use markers to color their work. Refilling your own markers can save you money, and it’s easy to do.”

how does this not have more notes!

i… i think i can actually afford to use these, then.

reblog for my artist friends!

I’m glad this came back around because I forgot to add the first time that ANYTHING LIQUID AND CLEAR WITH A HIGH ENOUGH ALCOHOL CONTENT WORKS FOR THIS so we’re talking your facial cleanser, screen cleaner, vodka, perfume, you name it. I used to have a cheap ass bottle of this facial cleanser stuff that didn’t smell of much and it worked like a charm for renewing alcohol markers like copics. Things like that are also probably cheaper or easier to get than high grade raw alcohol especially if you’re not doing professional works and just drawing for fun.

rinnai-rai thought you’d find some use of this bruh

So I saw some post a while ago about Paul, and I emailed the creators and they told me the whole back-story.

I’m so happy right now, this totally made my day.

Anonymous "The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century." this is, in no way shape or form, even mildly close to being even slightly true. please prove me wrong with a source other than a dry erase board around someone's neck. even though i realize that's enough proof to sway the opinion of the ever-legitimate SJW.

Aw, boo hoo— you called me a derogatory name that’s meaningless outside of Tumblr/Reddit/Urban Dictionary. How you wound!

Now this is one of two responses I’m providing to you anon-ratfucks tonight because: 1) I’m not your teacher, 2) Google is your friend, and 3) you fuckboys (and girls) never learn one way or another, so why waste the time. BUT, for my folks out there who actually care, here’s some stats that took less than an hour to gather on the internet (re: #2).

Recorded Lynchings in the US (likely under-reported):

Total of lynchings of Blacks over listed period: 1,568

Rate of murders annually: 58 per year

Total of law-enforcement killings of Blacks over last decade: Unknown because stats are intentionally manipulated, under-reported, or simply untracked

Rate of murders Annually: Also unknown; estimated at least 96 from independent analysis of FBI stats on ‘justifiable homicide’; upwards of 300 or more from individual auditors

So actually, you’re right— from what little data the corrupt police state actually reports, the police kill MORE Black folk today than lynchings in the early 20th century. Feel free to respond, but if you do, try to be less of a ratfuck punk, and actually show you’re real profile instead of anon. Also: you can take 20 seats now. 

1901 wasn’t a good year for white people.

But every year was a shitty year for black people.

But isn’t that pretty much the summary of “Black in America” on any topic. I gotta laugh cause otherwise… 

I’m gonna go ahead and head-off the inevitable response here to the comparison of lynchings and police brutality. People will say that some or all of the police killings were justified because the victim committed a crime/was suspected of a crime, whereas the lynchings were random, but that’s not the case at all. Most lynchings came about because a rumor spread that so-and-so had done something wrong and the community took “justice” into it’s own hands and killed the person. Often these rumors were totally false, or the alleged crime was something like: “looking at a white woman wrong”. But the fact remains, both police brutality today and lynchings in the 20th century operated under a veneer of legitimacy, because the victims were claimed to be criminals, who “had it coming.” Whether or not they actually did it, and the fact that the victims were never proven guilty in a court of law—wasn’t important.

Thus, the phenomenon is the same, lynchings basically continue to this day, but they’re mostly committed by the police now rather than civilians (though there still are civilian-perpetrated lynchings too, see Trayvon Martin.)

In case you forget, ”The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century.” Actually today’s police killings are outpacing lynchings.

Remember when I blindly hated Russel Brand? I fucked up.

"They’re in a better position to judge than I am."

I think this is how most open minded people who value communication, connection, and are willing to learn from others think.

…Did… Did Russel Brand just explain how to react to being called out on something? 

Huh.
