An Announcement

Hi everybody!

Sorry for being MIA, but there haven’t been many interview requests lately. I have a couple that are ready to posted and I just need to schedule and upload.

I had a wonderful time at ACE Comic Con and I am still on cloud nine. It was one of the best experiences of my life. It was incredibly busy and as a result, I am worn out (in the best possible way).

I hope you lot don’t mind, but I’m going to be taking a week-long break from posting just to rest and recharge my batteries (and smile as I remember the amazing experience I had).

I will still reply to any emails I receive and please (PLEASE!) keep sending me interview requests!

Interviews will resume next week. And I’m going to have a special announcement very, very soon (involving an art show specifically for ace-identifying artists).

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I do love this site and chatting with all the asexual artists who contact me.

Thanks, everybody!  🙂

A Couple Quick Things

Hello all!

I’m rather busy at the moment, so this is going to be rather brief.


 

A Reminder

(This is mostly directed at Tumblr, since that’s where I’m seeing the most acephobia and general horribleness towards people on the asexual spectrum)

I am not going to comment on the amount of hatred aimed at aces on Tumblr, especially the recent influx of it. I deal with enough acephobes and take comfort in the fact that they’re on the wrong side of history.

However!

I did want to take a moment to remind everyone that there is a strict anti-bullying, anti-bigotry policy on this blog (which is stated in the F.A.Q.) section. Simply put: I do not tolerate any kind of bullying or hatred. Racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, classism, ableism, any -ism (and other kind of prejudice) isn’t welcome on this blog and will not be tolerated.

If I catch wind of anyone reblogging and/or supporting the people who are currently attacking and bullying aces (and there’s one blogger in particular who has been targeting both asexual and bisexual bloggers on Tumblr), you will be permanently blocked from Asexual Artists. If you are blocked, I will pull your interview and links so fast your head will spin. I don’t care your reasons, I don’t care if you’re friends with an acephobe, if you are participating in acephobia and erasure, you are not welcome on this site. Asexual Artists is a safe place for everyone on the ace spectrum. And I will not tolerate any abuse directed at them.


 

More Interviews Needed

As always, Asexual Artists is open for more interviews. Every single kind of artist is welcome. If you’re anywhere on the spectrum, I would love to interview you.

I need more interviews to fill out the month, so please, send me an email: laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

Thank you, everyone!

Asexual Artists Assemble: More Announcements

Hello all!

I have a super exciting announcement and I’m so incredibly giddy about it.

Asexual Artists Panel at C2E2

C2E2 is one of the largest conventions in Chicago. I try to go every year because I like the atmosphere and a lot of my friends attend. One thing that has always bugged me is the lack of asexual representation. I decided to submit my “Where are the Asexual Voices?” panel this year. I didn’t think anything would come of it because they are always inundated with such amazing panels. But it couldn’t hurt to try.

Imagine my surprise when I received an email that said the panel had been accepted. “Where are the Asexual Voices” is going to be presented at C2E2 this year!

I am in an absolute state of shock. Wow. I am going to do my very best to bring more attention to asexual creators and I am going to give it my all. I plan to do a similar presentation to what I did at WisCon: a PowerPoint of the art from this site and a handout of links. Oh my god, I have so much work to do.

Oh my god, I wish I could properly explain just how massive this convention is. It’s the biggest one I do all year and the attendance is bigger every year. I’m so nervous, but I will do my best. If you’re in the Chicagoland area and are going to be attending, please try to stop by.

*I still have to update my appearances schedule on all my sites, including this one. So keep an eye on the scheduled appearances (I won’t find out the time and place of the panel until January 22nd I believe, but I will post the information once I receive it).


 

WANTED: More interviewees!

As you’ve probably noticed, I’m once again running low on interviewees. Please, keep spreading the word about this site to all the ace-identifying artists you know.

Remember: all experience levels (professional, student, aspiring) and all fields are welcome on this site.  Writers, visual artists, performance artists (dancers, actors, models, etc.), musicians (singers, playing instruments, etc.), and whatever else you can think of.

If you want to be interviewed, or have any questions, please send me an email: laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

Asexual Artists Assemble: Announcements

Hello wonderful beautiful followers! I recently realized that I hadn’t provided an update in quite a while. I’m currently out of town, but there a couple announcements that I needed to make.


 

Over 3,000 Followers

Oh yes, Asexual Artists has officially surpassed 3,000 followers. I think my jaw has permanently hit the floor. You lot are the best ever 🙂


 

WANTED: More Artists to Interview

This site continues because of the amazing artists out there. Asexual Artists is always open to more interviewees and I’m currently trying to fill up December. If you’re interested in being featured on Asexual Artists, please, please, please contact me at laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

*Also, it’s not required, but if you have questions, please check out the FAQ page to see if you can find an answer to your question there.

**IMPORTANT: If you try to ask for an interview via reblog or in tags, I won’t see it and I won’t respond.


 

REMINDER: All Artists are Welcome

I have recently had an influx of visual artists, which is wonderful and I’ll always interview more. However, I wanted to make sure other artists knew Asexual Artists is open to them as well too. I would like to interview a wide variety of artists. All artists are welcome.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Writers/authors
  • Performance artists (actors, singers, dancers of all styles)
  • Fanartists (including cosplayers)
  • Culinary artists
  • Musicians (if you play an instrument, sing, compose, etc.)
  • Whatever else I’m forgetting (architects, model makers, etc.)

If you consider it art, chances are I will as well. So please, get in touch 🙂
