That’s not cool Tumblr.
Reblogging just in case this is true. I’ll get it off my blog here later, but for now….
Yeah if this is true… I’m just leaving this here and may or not remove all art.
TIME TO READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CHANGES.
Oh yeah. It’s true.
What makes this even more of a shitshow though? Well, if you don’t feel like digging through all the legalese to find this section, I’ve done it for you. This is what it says as of 2014-01-25, 19:53 PST:
Read that. Read all of it. Not just the legalese in white. Not just the “skimmer-friendly” version in gray. Read both and notice how they technically, for all legal purposes, say the same things…yet completely contradict one another from any practical standpoint. The gray boxes are all nice and friendly. The legalese is basically a great big ol’ FUCK YOU.
So yeah, signal boost the hell out of this.
If this is true I’ll be deleting another blog entirely and possibly not posting any of my own original content on this one anymore, folks.

Michael explains sign painting
The term “traditional sign painting” sums up several techniques an artist or artisan has to know in order to be able to pursue his profession as a sign painter. Sadly those techniques are not taught anymore, as computer-designed and vinyl-plotted signs have become standard for quite a while now. But the market for vintage signs seems to grow again and there are more and more self-taught sign painters that revive that old profession. Sign painting involves for example pin striping, reverse glass decoration, gilding, lettering and painting, which utilizes special brushes. The painting on flat surfaces, as well as on bold or sunken reliefs requires greatest expertise. There only some specialists today painting signs professionaly for commercials, although the modern industry of fast copying grows.
Tobias Frere Jones from Hoefler & Frere-Jones said about sign painting:”Their signs are part of every community, as welcome and familiar as a friend, but the sign painters themselves are so rarely known.”
Unfortunately calligraphy, typography and sign painting are professions that are not well known and respected in the design business. But they all still give a certain character and scatter a warm handmade flow of products made with love. We love sign painintg and for supporting this fascinating art, we hope you will have another eye now on the signs you see on the street, handmade by an old brush artist living in a small home and working with joy on every single day.
Emanuela Lupacchino is an Italian artist best known for her work on X-Factor for Marvel.
She was a biotech researcher before deciding to follow her passion for art and comics, and she attended an Italian comics art academy for three years. Her work appeared in the Italian series L’Insonne as well as some short stories in anthologies. She also worked as a character designer for role-playing game books and as an illustrator.
Her first big break into American comics was in 2009, when IDW hired her to pencil Angel: Only Human. In 2010 Marvel hired her to pencil X-Factor with writer Peter David. She has since penciled a Castle tie-in graphic novel (Storm Season) written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, a run on Valiant’s Archer & Armstrong written by Fred Van Lente, and covers on various DC titles such as World’s Finest and Ame-Comi Girls, as well as IDW’s Star Trek.
She cites The Rocketeer creator Dave Stevens as a strong influence on her approach to sequential art.
