i hate interviews, i hate being asked things, so for some incomprehensible reason i decided to make an “ask trevor anything” blog
it actually stemmed from a post someone made on instagram asking “how can an american artist become popular in japan” – as i was tagged in the post i decided to click the comment button: “i think the same answer to how can an american artist become popular in america? – popularity is generally hideous and not something to aspire to anyway, imho (just look at the accounts that have hundreds of thousands of followers here on instagram” – then the very next thing i see on instagram totally corroborated what i just wrote – some “artist” with 90k followers posting an (uncredited) direct copy of one of my paintings generating 4k likes and 160 comments – urgh!, very irritating, especially when finding his “ask me anything” page bitching/bragging about dozens of artists he claimed were copying him! – disbelief!!
me signing up with tumblr wasn’t straighforward of course – i was surprised to find my email already in use – then when trying to log in with it to request a password change i got a “your account is terminated” screen – my memory is very bad but i think ten or fifteen years ago (in the livejournal / myspace era) i did briefly have a tumblr account – which didn’t pass the tumblr fitness test (not enough porn and gore etc which tumblr is a happy playground for today!) – kinda shocking they apparently ban you forever?! – i shot a message to contact support – no answer!! – i never shall know what incredibly heinous crime i allegedly committed to warrant a life sentence – happily i was able to sign up after making a new email
so i now have an ask me anything page – here! – it’ll soon get repetitive and boring (or simply die) i suspect – already within the first half dozen questions there was already two people asking if i’m into scat! : (
