An Open Invitation.

This is a message specifically intended for the people out there who have taken it upon themselves to anonymously inform me of how much they dislike me, my artwork, and my website.

Bring it!

That’s right, keep it coming! Bring me all of your rage. Bring me your disappointment. Bring me your hatred. Bring me your insults. And tell all your friends to do the same. Believe me, all of that negativity, I want it! Bring it to me! I dare you!

Go ahead! Keep on telling me how bad my art is. Tell me I suck! I want you to. There’s no need to offer any constructive criticism. Keep making immature generalizations. Keep on painting your little picture of how terrible I am in such broad, ignorant strokes. Continue to wrongly assume that it will make a difference, force me to give up, or change any part of my daily life in any fashion.

Keep on talking about how you know other people who are younger and/or dumber than me that also have more talent then me. Please, continue to fail in showing me any examples. Please, continue to not tell me who they are. Please, don’t bother to cite any of your qualifications to make such judgments. Please don’t put anything I do into any sort of proper context either. And please, continue to think that this statement makes me feel bad about myself.

And while you’re at it, go and attack me personally too. Make fun of me. Make fun of my bandana. Mock my beliefs and my philosophies in life. Make fun of how my name is “Ninjatron” and I call myself a ninja. Make fun of how I like anime, because everyone knows that anime sucks. Make fun of my physical appearance. Make fun of how skinny I am, because it’s just so much cooler to be a fat tub of lard. Make fun of my clothing. Make fun of my goatee! And hey, since you’re taking it that far, talk about how I failed college, or how I didn’t even go to college, or other assorted lies. While you’re at it, make another untrue accusation and call me gay! It makes all your points seem just so much more intelligent!

Oh, and since your have such terrible things to say, you might as well conceal your identity behind a fake e-mail address. No need to stand behind your words. No need to own up to your actions. Being anonymous just adds so much credibility, doesn’t it? Please, continue to prove your cowardice. It really helps your case.

In all seriousness, I am a very negative, vengeful, and evil person when I want to be. All of these insults, all of these lies, all of this hatred, it fuels me! I will use it to my advantage. I will eat it for breakfast! It will become my source of energy and inspiration! It will make me continue to do what I do, and thus the only difference it will make will be my continuing to become better and better at it. I will become a success in spite of any garbage that is thrown my way, and there is no force on this planet strong enough to ever prevent that from happening.

If you really didn’t like me, then you’d leave this website right away and never return again. But if my supposed terribleness has become so entertaining to you that you have to tell me all about it, then I honestly thank you! Thank you for your generous contribution! Your intentions will completely and utterly backfire, and I will use all of your negativity to make myself stronger.

You are giving me exactly what I want. That means I win.

I can take it. I can take the worst that anyone has to say about me and still keep going. But there are a whole lot of would-be artists out there, and they all don’t have skin as thick as mine. If I can serve as an example to even just one other artist who has contemplated giving up on their dream after their hard work was rudely maligned like mine has been, then it’s worth it.

So, like I said…

Bring it!

You can’t beat me! I am invincible!
