Development of Adobe Creative Suite 7, and all plans of future creative suites have been discontinued. The only option going forward will be the Creative Cloud (CC) subscription model.
You should support this petition because Adobe is making their already expensive products even more expensive in the long run. Adobe is robbing small business, freelancers, and the average consumer. They do not seem to understand that every company is a not multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporation that has an infinite amount of resources.
In the end it comes down to this: Adobe’s consumers will not be able to make such a large payment every month on the CC subscription model. In the short term, the subscription model looks to be okay, but over time the only entity that is benefiting from this is Adobe. The (no longer) current model: paying a one time fee for infinite access is a much better business model and is better for the consumer.
Let’s make a difference and stand up to Adobe and let them know our stance. We want our voices heard.
Guys, this is actually a pretty serious issue. If you are a digital artist, no matter what software you actually use, should take this in to consideration. Adobe is and will be the business standard software for concept artists, graphic designers, illustrators, comic artists, animators and all other fields that need Adobe’s products in their work.
The economic future for the aspiring digital artist might become even more hard to achieve if we don’t do something about this. So please sign this. Even if you never use photoshop. We all know that most art programs are influenced by Adobe’s products, if adobe start using this marketing model there might be a chance that the other software developers follow the same path. So yes this matters for all of us who work digitally. (<—-this is, by the way, just my own theory. Do NOT take this as a fact or a solid statement.)
I created this petition to stop Adobe earlier yesterday. It has received almost 1,000 signatures in one day. This is incredible. Please read and repost this. We want to have a choice. Of course the old software will still be around for awhile, but eventually (unless we convince them otherwise) we all will be forced into Creative Cloud simply due to the fact that our software will be out of date. We want Adobe to hear the people.
for some reason when i saw chickensnack’s post, it looked like everything a snotty 13 year old pokemon trainer would gear up with on her pokemon quest… fittin’ just the essentials in her sonic the hedgehog backpack. so i drew her. yep!
firealpaca and photoshop
I was asked recently … as an “established” tattooer… if I thought an apprenticeship was still a worthwhile endeavor for an aspiring artist……. my answer:
“starting to tattoo without an apprenticeship is like building rockets without studying physics. sure…. it might take off… but you’re probably not going to go very far, or hit your mark, and you’re likely to destroy enough shit to piss off everyone around you.
true, I come from a traditional art background, but I owe my success in tattooing, AS WELL AS IN ART, to my solid and lengthy apprenticeship. I owe my mentor everything. I’d be nothing without it, or him. “
we DO NOT need any more tattooers that don’t know the fundamentals. let alone ones that haven’t learned to respect what it is that we do. if you don’t want to do this the right way, don’t. fucking. bother.
freehanded onto the client and then tattooed.

If it wasn’t for the kindness of others I wouldn’t have got very far with making music (and I haven’t got very far). I don’t actually own my own guitar or amp, or anything, so we thought; what the heck? Lets enter Ghost Hole in this contest and try to win some equipment.
I’m really excited about Ghost Hole, because for the first time I feel like I’ve really started to grasp onto the sound I want. I still have a long way to go, but being able to write songs about issues that are important to me with a group of people that care has me really excited about this project.
So if you could, take a moment to vote for Ghost Hole in this contest. I would be super grateful. The voting ends on Feb. 24 to select the top in our region. You can vote once a day!
Please reblog and share <3
