You have said several times that you don't know what you're doing next year I was wondering if you're going to college or have toured any or have any schools in mind?

@Anonymous

i’ve toured the art institute of chicago a few times and i like it a lot like i would love living in chicago and i loved how the campus was spread out through the city and the people i met didn’t seem uppity or pretentious like how i’ve always imagined art school types but then a few weeks ago i took a seminar and there were a bunch of really talented hyper realist drawers who were younger than me and it intimated me a lot bc all i know how to do is just doodle shitty cartoons and i’m not even good at it so ever since i’ve felt really uneasy and i’ve been questioning whether or not i belong at a college/ what i should do with myself in general and college is a lot of money and yeah

Do you have a last fm?

Haha way to be hypocritical and sexist with your stupid sweatshirt comic..

@Anonymous

ahh was that sexist? i drew that awhile ago and my intention was to kind of poke fun at how rich people will spend a lot of money on things that are pretty much the equivalent to stuff you’d buy at any big box store but will then make fun of and look down on people who actually do shop at walmart or look “”poor” and there’s this weird classist double standard thing? if that’s not the message the comic conveys i am sorry and i will take it down. but is it possible to make commentary on potentially problematic things girls do without being sexist? that’s something i’ve grappled with for awhile and a discussion i’m interested in having pls tell me what you think any thoughts are appreciated

What do you think about other artists on tumblr copying you? Does it bother you?

@Anonymous

i’ve never seen anyone on tumblr who i thought was “copying” me that’s a pretty trite accusation but the whole idea behind copying doesn’t bother me at all cause it’s flattering but more importantly i think copying is how you learn. it’s how i learned at least. a lot of my early stuff was me trying to copy ghost world, square pegs, freaks & geeks, daria, album covers like ‘goo’ and other artists/creators on tumblr like teenboystuff and ghostcave/teenagebum/whatever94 till i kind of developed out my own groove and style. but i think all those influences are still very visible and present in my current work. so yeah i totally encourage copying/emulating stuff you think is cool artistically. 

The amount of blush your wear is so obnoxious and unnecessary.

@Anonymous

what i don’t even wear blush i have rosacea jeez i hope you feel bad about yourself now you should write me a 350 word essay on the consequences of sending rude anonymous messages 

Your comics about love are distinctively anti-man. You seem to turn man hating into a sport! It's off-putting and lazy.

@Anonymous

if the message you take away from reading my comics is that i’m “anti man” rather than that i’m a teenage girl who is confused, frustrated, and conflicted over boys, love, and romance and trying to figure out how to balance having a million crushes and wanting someone with being an independent strong willed young woman then i’m seriously disappointed in whatever public school system you attended for failing to teach you some really basic reading comprehension skills 

What's been your favorite album from this year thus far?

@Anonymous

Your a senior in high-school, correct? So I assume you're graduating this year? Are you going to keep making comics about high-school or will you make comics about college? Just wondering.

@Anonymous

yeah i am graduating this year and i’ve thought a lot about this. i’m going to keep making comics about margo and i, our friendship, love lives, and post-highschool confusion you know the whole “oh god i’m not 16 anymore i have to start acting like an adult what the fuck do i do now” shit but then i’m also going to keep making comics about highschool using my brother and his friends (who are starting highschool next year) as the main characters. so you’ll follow them all into freshmen year while you follow margo and i as we’re starting life after highschool and go from there. i’ll make a master post about it soon i’m excited about changes. 

what's wrong with your thumb

@Anonymous

ahaha i can’t believe people noticed but ok so i have this genetic thing called “”clubbed thumbs” which basically just means that my thumbs are short round misshapen and fat no matter what and they’re always gonna look like big toes megan fox has it too it’s super weird

sorry if this is a stupid question, but do you have any advice on how to stick n poke?

@Anonymous

im not an expert on stick n pokes i recommend you go here:

but here are a few things i have learned:

  • dont use pen ink cause it can be toxic and it usually bleeds/ makes really fuzzy lines„just go buy india ink they have it at most craft and art stores
  • be safe and clean & don’t poke any further than about an 1/8 an inch don’t make yourself bleed
  • certain parts of your body take ink differently like i tried to give myself a tat on my hand but it didn’t take the ink so it didn’t stay 
  • never get a boys initials tattooed on you bc all boys suck and love never lasts you will regret it in the end when you break up and die alone with “A.M. + T.B.” forever tattooed on your hip and you’ll hate it and him and yourself

You mentioned ink for stick n' pokes? Are you planning to get one/ give one? Do you have any experience? Sorry for all the questions I just think that's cool.

@Anonymous

ive given a few before to other people (theyre safe and fine & last forever if u do them properly) and now i want something small on my wrist but i cant decide between the frog creature from hi how are you or maybe the k records logo or saturn or or or i saw a great tat based on this poster that put beat happenings cats in the black flag bars i think its so cool i could get that: http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2264/2346979723_a4aaf6b626_z.jpg

It’s sooo painfully obvious that you don’t actually like any of the bands or movies you talk about and that you just want to appear ~quirky~

@Anonymous

why is it like especially on the internet that when a girl says she likes something whether it be a band or a movie or tv show or video game that she has to jump through all these hoops to prove that she actually likes what she says she does but we don’t hold that standard to guys at all i mean if a guy talks about loving zelda he’s just a normal guy right maybe a little geeky but if a girl does it “” ooohhhhhh what a speical snowflake what a gamurr gurll she’s obviously looking for attention” have you ever thought about how fucking stupid that is 

What are your Halloween plans Taylor Ruth?
