I'm wondering if it's possible to participate in the trainerdex collaboration without a Twitter account? I'm really not interested in signing up for Twitter, but am very interested in drawing a pokemon trainer for the collab :3 It's a really cool idea.
You don’t need a Twitter account to participate. Just make sure to browse the list and let me know which one of the available characters you wish to draw. Once I confirm your character, you can start working on your entry.
Thanks for taking interest in the collab!
Art can actually be a beautiful way to pay tribute to death, there’s no wrong way to grieve, and there’s validity in being sad over people you’ve never even met.
But to any artists out there, I encourage you to simply ask yourself honestly if within hours of discovering someone dying, and you’re already putting pen/brush to paper/canvas — why you are, and if you should. Are you doing that because you profoundly want to honor this person you have never commemorated before, or are you capitalizing on someone’s death for self-promotion? If the answer is the former, then a “window of relevance” won’t matter — put weight behind that decision, take care, take your time, and truly make it great.
