Yeah, it's a german name because czech countries was part of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. In history Pilsen have a german name and name Pilsner Urquell is relic of this times. That does not change the fact that it is Czech beer. Czechs are sensitive when someone says their beer is German.
If tons of people enjoy his pony art, it can't be considered a waste XP
Besides, I know from experience that it can be pretty annoying to get type casted as one kind of artist and do nothing but that over and over and over, it's the fastest way to burn yourself out and stop drawing stuff in total @_@
Tons of people voted for Bush, fact: he ruined the economy and screwed over the US, majority rules doesn't always work.
And yes you are right it is tough to be casted as one type of artist. But dont leave the rest of us in the dust, we who are his original fans are sad because week after week we no longer get to see that which drew us to the artist in the first place. It's fine to change what you want to do, but give the rest of us fair warning first.
Voting for people to lead us all can't be compared to what people enjoy for their art >.> One effects everyone while the other is simply "look at this art if you want" Mainly, just cause it's not your cup of tea, it doesn't make it a waste of time. Pleeeenty of people are getting just as much joy from his cute pony art then from his other stuff.
And it's not like everyone that watches his gallery is paying him to view his gallery XD It's a free gallery in which he's free to do as he pleases. If he had a pay-to-view website, and changed the theme without warning sure that sucks, but for a free to view place like here? I don't think he owes anything to anyone...except for those that actually commissioned him with points/money to draw stuff for them XD
