This isn’t really a prank post. I almost wanted to say that from now on I’m only going to depict giant (or normal-sized) people as above, as minimalist stick figures that have no sexual appeal at all. Why? As a way to signify my feelings regarding the representation of tiny people as such; featureless, fingerless, sexless, flat little figures that deeply contrast their much larger, carefully detailed counterparts.
While I’m a huge fan of many artists that engage in drawing little people as white blobs, it’s impossible for me to have real fun while staring at those images. Because of my gender, my focus is on the tiny men of images and stories that are described richly, or rendered carefully. I’m sure the thousands of people currently enjoying the female figure being shown down to the pores on their skin would feel the same way if they suddenly couldn’t find any drawings or digital images that showed nothing but amoeba-like biggos.
I’m going to continue to draw as I have thus far… well, I’m going to get better at it… but every once in a while I’m going to draw giant blobs. It’s only fair. That’s all I’m going to say about that, and have nothing much to add about April Fools’ Day. When I was a child and my friends prepared to prank one another in ways that were painful or embarrassing, I stopped them in their tracks by revealing their schemes. The day goes by a different name and month down there, but the enjoyment at someone else’s pain is the same, and I couldn’t allow it.
Now that I’ve said that, an idea for a character that celebrates the day to the hilt has come to mind, so I’m going to have to execute it, and then share it. Then you’ll probably see your way clear to looking at it, which will probably cause you some disquiet. I certainly hope it does. : D
