Etsy: Your online marketplace for all things hand traced
UPDATE: Eagle-eyed Regretsian Ann also found this in High Class Design’s shop. Stay classy!
Speaking of art, you may remember this Alchemy Request:
Well, the person who made this request has now received some sketches from the artist they hired. And because I am nothing if not a patron of the arts, I am posting a pencil sketch here for your amusement. It’s not very good quality, but I guarantee it’s the best drawing of John Cena buggering Daniel Tosh that you’ll see all day.
This is definitely, unreservedly NOT SAFE FOR WORK, unless you’re employed at a place where they don’t mind you looking at hand drawn gay porn. So, if you work at Bravo, you’re good.
In their relentless pursuit to make it even harder for people to sell shit, Etsy has announced that they are disabling their Alchemy feature.
This means that instead of letting people bid on your custom job, you’ll have to slog through millions of sellers you don’t know and have no experience with. It’s just one more way Etsy is making your shopping experience like going to a really shitty mall.
The good news is that the Alchemy feature will return at some point, most likely after Etsy figures out a way to make it more expensive and difficult to use. In the meantime, here are some Alchemy Requests I’ve been hoarding for your amusement.
UPDATE: One of our readers left this artwork in the comment thread. I wanted to make sure you saw it.
