What should I do HB? Vol. Complex bullshittin doe

August 02, 2011 @ 18:13:07
Aight so a little over a month ago I posted some artwork I did on here and my tumblr. Anyway this girl messages me on tumblr and says she likes my shit and wants to post them on the art/design section of complex and she was wondering if I could send her some pics of them. So before I answered her I did research to see if it was legit and it all seemed fine and I told her it was cool. So I send her the pics and I check the website for a week and nothing went up. So messaged her asking what was up and she said they were out on July 4th holiday and that the pics should be up by next week. So I check the website for another week and nothing again. a couple weeks ago I messaged her again to see what was up and there was no response. Its been a good month now and I haven't heard from her at all. Now I realize this probably shouldn't be that big of a deal since its just a daily feature on a magazine website in a section not a lot of people read, but I'm still mad about it. Now the real question is should I try to message her again? Should I troll the shit out of their art/design section? Or should I just take the L and move on.
Help me out HB

tldr

Just keep it moving. It didnt help that you kept hitting her up

I feel ya. But it wasn't like I was blowing her up though. I hit her up once at the beginning of july and one more time a couple weeks later.

Where you supposed to get paid?

I doubt it. I'm pretty sure it was just gonna be one of those little daily things they post on there. Plus she never mentioned anything about getting paid.

I only read the cliffs but the same thing happened to me. She obviously found something better to put on in her article. She might eventually use them though, you never know.

all I do is sip espressos and listen to AZ -mrelllis.tumblr.com

why did you feel you needed to tell him that you only read the cliffs?

what was the motive behind that?

lol'd.

But anyway. Koven that sucks man. Thats probably what happened. I wouldn't be as mad if she would've just been like hey I'm not gonna use em, thanks though. I just think its bitchassness that she say anything/respond.

She was just a messenger for ......







too bad so sad blushing

Just take the L son. It happens, making it into a deal won't do anything but possibly hurt you later on. Your work is dope by the way. Keep at it.

Because my post was only based on the cliffs, I don't know the details. I only know that someone asked him for his work, he sent it in and never heard from them again, Pretty damn common in the amateur art world especially on the net.

What was your motive for this post? lol

lol yeah, but it could've gave me a little exposure.

This, it's a ♥♥♥♥♥ out there who can't even get a drink of water and we worried about shit like this.

She asked your permission. Doesn't necessarily mean she's gonna use it. But if she was going to, she has your permission. That's how things go.
