Slug Training by ursulav Slug Training by ursulav
The domestic slug makes a beloved pet and valued member of the family--loyal, alert, good with the hatchlings. Stories of faithful slugs sliming their way across hundreds of miles to return home, or oozing into burning buildings to rescue those trapped inside abound. (Sadly, since the top speed of a slug is rather less than the top speed of a burning building, those latter stories rarely have happy endings, but everybody agrees that it's a really first rate effort on the part of the loyal slug.) Truly, the slug is lizard's best friend.

'Course, you gotta housebreak the little buggers first.

Mixed media, 5 x 7. Original is for sale, if you feel the need to adorn your walls with a puddle of slug urine--it's not my place to judge, man! Print also available. Visit [link] or, if I have failed to update in a timely fashion, drop me a note!

Has anyone ever told you that you are the most awesomest person ever and you have the greatest imagination and artistic talent? Because if you don't hear that at least 306 times a day, something is wrong with the world.

Out of curiousity, what do you hope to accomplish with a comment like that? I mean, if you genuinely want to take the 110+ people faving a piece you deem unworthy to task, there's got to be a more efficient way. Tracking down all the people that said "Fave!" for example, and replying, so that they'd actually SEE the note. If, rather than individual chastisement, you want to just complain about the quality of DTFs, then your journal or the forums would be entirely appropriate places to do so.

But why leave a comment for the artist saying that you don't think it's good enough? I mean, how does that help improve the quality of the DTF? If you're setting out to try and hurt the feelings of any thin-skinned artists out there, then sure, direct commentary is probably a good way to go, but if that isn't your intent, I think you're goin' about this in a rather inefficient manner, dude.
