~Stop Reposting Art, Zac Gorman Edition~
These are all comics created by the totally awesome Zac Gorman, as you can clearly see in his signature on these. You can find these Zelda comics as well as other game-related art at his gaming tumblr Magical Game Time, and if you want some super rad merchadise you can find his store here.
Thankfully his signature is intact on these so for anyone interested, he should be easy to find. BUT, that also leaves zero excuse for the person that decided to repost these comics and leave them unsourced. As of right now, this post as over 60k notes on it, meaning Zac has lost out on tens of thousands of potential supporters. Posting art without a source could literally take countless potential customers/clients away from artists. ARTISTS HAVE BILLS TO PAY LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, and need as much exposure as they can get to do so!
In this case and in many cases, Zac has not one but TWO tumblrs that these comics could have been reblogged from, but instead someone chose to repost them and rob Zac of the attention he deserves. It may not seem like a big deal, and you might think “it’s the internet so deal with it,” but every person has agency over their own actions and they can CHOOSE not to repost art. So yeah, don’t be a jerk just to get notes.
What she said! Zac is a great + talented dude that deserves to steal yr moneys.

Amazing Street Art from Plastic Jesus
From the crowded urban streets of Los Angeles, California comes a street artist known as Plastic Jesus. He creates incredible and controversial art installations, such as a giant mouse-trap with credit cards as bait, a fake grave with flowers and a mock rifle positioned as a headstone for the 11,458 people killed during 2011 and 2012 with automatic weapons or a giant spilled can of Mountain Dew cordoned off as if it were toxic waste. He consistently creates public mixed-media pieces that point out the negative aspects of our culture into something thought provoking. The installations above are titled as followed:
- Stop Making Stupid People Famous
- Credit Trap
- Toxic Hazard
- No Kardashians
- American Excess
- RIP 11,458
