@requrious i remember when my printmaking professor yelled at a neurodivergent classmate for drawing anime style saying she had to go all the way back and study hokusai and i was like nah dawg anime style is a result of american colonization of japan and shoving branding in their faces post-war and she just got pissed at me for correcting her


@requrious (said professor frequently used native iconography in her work despite being anglo white so i think she just doesn't feel concerned about colonization :/ )
