Здесь палка о двух концах. С одной стороны те, кто реально хотел/хочет помочь, давно уже рисуют или нарисовали комишины, деньги за которые ушли в фон помощи. С другой стороны многие люди действительно переживают какие бы прямые или кривые руки у них ни были и на каком бы уровне это переживание не находилось и это переживание они выплескивают в виде рисунков на данную тему. Толпа же подхватывает это и оттого, что тема еще актуальна - появляется популярность. Хотя, если честно, меня эти работы слегка достали. Недавно видела шикарный фото-стрип на эту тему.

Ну, все же, как по мне, не стоит забывать, что далеко не все задумываются о том, чтобы как-то пиариться за счет больной темы. Люди выплескивают свои эмоции, пусть и сиюминутные, как умеют. Сейчас он почитал тексты про Японию, проникся, накалякал за пять минут, выплеснул эмоцию, поделился с другими и забыл. Думаю, что осознанно прямо вот так себя пиарят немногие. Я вот тоже имела сиюминутное желание что-нибудь нарисовать на эту тему, но по той же причине, что это не совсем прилично и скорее бессмысленно, отказалась.

I cna see your pint and i guess i kinda of agree with you. But as someone else said, it is thier way of showing thier concern and stuff. But i really want to try and help them any way i can, but mostly by asking for comisions and haveing them go to the Red Cross. :3

I doubt most people were drawing these pictures for popularity. Art is about passion, sadness evokes a lot of artistic emotions. Other than that, some of the art is for raising money to donate to charities helping aid japan right now.

maybe a couple people, but not most of them.

If there's info on how to donate in the artists comments, I don't really care. What annoys me is that people complaining about this assume these guys haven't done anything to help. I don't know if they have, but neither does anyone else.

I think it's super-selfish of people to be doing that. I hate it. "Raising awareness" is a stupid excuse, as I have not met a single person a day after the catastrophe who did not already know the situation.

agreed, being realistic is probably the best choice one can make, and if they want to appeal to people through rhetoric to get attention for their drawings/paintings/photos, then so be it. But at some point people will eventually sober up and realize that it means nothing.

The fact that people are characterizing their support for Japan out of a love for manga and anime is just as disconcerting. It's pseudo-racism. It's like if the same thing happened somewhere else no one here would give a shit.

I think this might be the last straw for me and this community.

после этого тоже немножко возмущаюсь, но про себя

А я вот первые картинки "на тему" увидел на пиксиве 11 марта, сразу после событий. Причем, сами японцы рисовали и друг друга подбадривали みんな!頑張れ! (ребята, держитесь!)

когда японцы и друг друга это ок.
но когда все подряд говорят о том, где их даже в мыслях рядом не было и вроде как переживают в блогах и галерейках... это крайне странно и я не верю таким "проявлениям чувств"

at least i offer emergency shelter for befriend jp in need. at my home.
and thats all I'd wish for in such a situation: to have a safe shelter somewhere else for a while until the critical situation cleared. i don't have much space, only 1 room apartment but- i wish more people would offer shelter.

I'm amazed people are drawing so fast on this crisis...=7=~ I mean... I know one artist who could barely draw a fully illustrated piece because she's actually suffering from Japan's situation (Family, OverSea Studies, etc)

Understand those that are being sold for Prints towards Japan but the rest... I ain't sure.

But some actually do draw with a true soul because that is all they can do. Draw.

I'm not on any of those "parties" (the party making drawings, paper cranes, praying etc. and the party bashing them for being "useless"). See, I perfectly understand your point, and I agree almost completely with what you said -even if I don't like at all the rude way in which you are saying it-. I don't feel confortable about drawings and other material inspired in the tragedy (especially when it's still so recent)and I actually think it's rather "useless", so I didn't create any piece of art of it, I just wrote the breaking news in my blog... but I have nothing against those who show their concern in such ways. I may find those drawing kind of useless, but they are not "pointless", well at least not more than a whole bunch of people bashing them, like you did. Right now, I could say "If you have so much time as to be jerking about it, you should be the first one to actively help and stop wasting your time flaming on the internet, right?" Saying that would be so rather stupid, but it's actually the same you are doing to people who "pray and draw"... I hope you get my point.

With this journal you are doing exactly the same as people do with their drawings: raising awareness. Not more, not less. You just said the same as lots of other people said -though I must criticism you for being much ruder than any of those I read- it's just the way in which you express your feelings and thoughts about the situation. People who pray, make drawings, etc. are just showing concern in different ways, and yes, many of them may not even be saying it from their hearts and they aren't doing anything at all to help. However, I wonder, why are you just asumming that people who make a drawing or a paper crane didn't have good intentions in the first place, or didn't "help" with donations and other "useful" stuff already? Why do you assume they did it to "exploit" the situation? In the same fashion as you did, I could just assume you are jealous that they made it to the frontpage with a "silly drawing" and then used the whole "anti-useless-stuff" statement to get some attention. But I have more brains than that, and I am sure you can easily realize that you aren't helping either with your childish rudeness and assumption.

On another note, the paper cranes are idea of the Japanese. They represent wishes for them, and they are making them with dirty newspapers sheets even when they don't have food or sanitary goods etc. I'm no Christian at all, but I know people need hope when they feel like they can't do much with their own hands, they need to believe in something in difficult times, and that's just the same for everyone in crisis times. It's not helpful? Well, not in a more physical way I guess... but it's rather narrow-minded thinking "hope" and "good wishes" are not worth something.

It's not that I not agree with you, or that I can't understand people who made those drawing. I just wanted to say that the spotligh shouldn't be this whole flaming war between the ones who pray, the ones who draw, the ones who criticism them for not being more "helpful"... the spotligh should be on REALISTIC ways to help and realistic discussion about the matter, not bashing wars like what you ironically did here, like lots of people is doing.

discussion is a good thing )
everyone has a right to share his own opinion with others. well, i've got it too. no matter in which words, that's just an emotional part.
all those drawings are less than doubtful help. as for me, i helped wth donation.

>people need hope when they feel like they can't do much with their own hands, they need to believe in something in difficult times

the victims must hope and pray. others must help.
getting a "hope" and "good news" as a help jp people will continue dieing in ruins.

>Why do you assume they did it to "exploit" the situation?

unfortunately, i know pretty many people who do such things only in their own interests.

Indeed... but at least they are showing support :\

Though, it is a bit too soon to start drawing... drawings of Japan tragedy... Unless its for Commercial use or something 8|

Again, not everyone is able to donate money or even items :\ I would like if they draw Commissions FOR Japan if they are that good @A@...
