Q:What's your opinion on zoos/animals in captivity?
I have 7 snakes, 2 lizards, 3 cats and a fish so yes i believe in pets. and It depends on the zoo really. Zoos are a very important part of education and research, and zoos that are research facilities, with scientists working with them that are open to the public are pretty much heaven for me. The thing I cannot stand is (for profit) animal “attractions”. Getting close to captive animals is an extremely important thing for people to be able to do in order to educate the public. Anyone who says that there should be no zoos doesn’t understand that if not for zoos, if not for a safe environment for people to be able to view these creatures it’s almost impossible for use to really reach them and express their importance. That being said there are quite a few animals that do very poorly in zoos (mainly sea mammals and pelagic sharks) to name a few. I am against keeping any animal in captivity if it cannot live a healthy comfortable life.However, I am equally against those who want to abolish zoos because it is not only unnecessary it’s quite irresponsible. The goal should be to make zoos better, not eliminate them. Zoos are responsible for a many breeding, conservation, education, research and scientific efforts. To take zoos away is to take away the public’s access to zoology it’s self as well as that of the researchers and scientists.
I’d like to add that there are a number of species that are extinct in the wild, and if it were not for zoos, those species would be gone.
Side note: These don’t have motors. They’re completely momentum/wind-powered and literally just wander around beaches unsupervised like giant abstract monsters.
these are both amazing and COMPLETELY TERRIFYING
Like something out of a Miyazaki movie
Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
this almost made me cry
this is simultaenously the best and worst submission i’ve ever seen from Clients from Hell.
I feel ill
There comes a certain point where you can no longer blame lack of time, lack of inspiration, other people, etc. for why you aren’t getting where you want to with your artwork. This advice applies for any goal; it’s not unique to artists.
