People don’t realise there’s a cost incurred that allows for all the years that artist worked on their skills to improve, that compensated for the times they had to work two or more shitty jobs just to cover the most basic bills, that acknowledges that what they do represents a unique point of view and displays their own personal style. Art is more than the sum of its materials, and so is an artist. When you try to talk an artist down in price, you’re being insulting.
this is fucking spot on!
Handmade is awesome!

Here, ask yourself: Is there a stage that seems to be missing here? Well, how about the one where you yearn for the person to be alive again? As in, the emotion you actually feel the most after someone dies? Well, it’s not there because the five stages weren’t supposed to apply to people mourning the loss of others — they are emotions the terminally ill express when facing their own deaths.
