It occurs to me that when I made my stereotypical "oh, hey, I'm taking all my work away from you creeps!" post, that I forgot to include links directing you to where I will be sharing my work.

The place where I devote much of my life and my art to is tumblr.

I have several tumblr blogs, but my photography goes on the main one at rabtownsend.tumblr.com
If you don't have a tumblr, or you're not interested in the other things that I post there, you can check out my portfolio directly by checking my photography tag.
If you're so inclined, you can even set up an RSS feed to get notifications in your live bookmarks whenever I post something new. It only takes one click!

I also have an instagram; username: hatebunny (but I don't post much of my actual photography on there).

And just on the off chance that anyone's interested, I have two more tumblr blogs:
  • Townsend Ten Years Ago - where I go through my folder of photos and post one or two photos from ten years ago to the date, with a brief story of what was going on in my life when I took them.
  • The Infinite Humiliation of Caroline Sullivan - an intermittently updated series of short stories and poems about a girl who gets humiliated in some way by the end of every entry. It's kind of darkly funny and poignant.

Additionally, I have two music projects that I work on:
  • Aetherius - sort of dreamy electronic music for sleepy people.
  • Horses About Men - "progressive folk" music with a wry sense of humour. (Our most recent album is a holiday record where most of the songs are about being depressed or humiliated by your family).



I've also been thinking of starting a patreon, and if I do, I'll let you all know, because give me money, yo.

I never thought I'd do this, but I feel like the deviantart community has nothing to offer me of late.
I've made good friends here. I've made some of my best friends here. I've made a few acquaintances with people I respect.
There's still a lot of beautiful art to take in, and that's one major reason I'm not deactivating my account.

But I have decided to store all of my deviations.

This is for two major reasons:
  1. The most consistent feedback and response on my work has been extremely limited to about 3 photos I took nearly three years ago. New work has received no response at all.
    I attribute this to the presence of boobs. I attribute this to the overwhelmingly prurient interests of this website's userbase, to the extent that I fear they may outnumber the actual artists.
  2. It was recently brought to my attention that deviantArt's terms of use agreement essentially gives them the right to sell your artwork to third parties without paying you any royalties or even telling you. I don't expect that would ever happen to me, given that my traditional art skills are mediocre, and my photography skills are unrecognized. And I know many websites do have clauses that give them powers to use your works in order that the site can run as it is expected to.

Regardless, I don't really want to contribute more of my work into this space.
So, not gonna.

Totally going to keep coming back and following my friends' contributions, but my work will be going to other, more supportive spaces.

So. Woop-de-doo.
