Back Out From Hiding

Some of my works and journal entries are now listed as “not safe for work” so if you want to see everything in my portfolio and journal, make sure you have your filter switched off.

You may also notice that a few works I previously pulled down due to ‘concerns’ or ‘complaints’ are back up. No disrespect intended to the people I pulled them down for. This new filter means that anything coming close to the line can be hidden from those people who don’t want to see it. It does not give permission to post whatever the hell we feel like and I realise that.

If you feel I have crossed the line, I still urge you to contact me at jo.obrien@hotmail.com

I still get regular emails complaining about my work. So obviously I’m still pushing a few buttons. From here on in, without wanting to sound harsh, I’m going to limit my depublishing to official RedBubble requests. If I get a strong complaint in my email I will ask RedBubble admin for a verdict before deciding what to pull down.

Now, please don’t get me wrong- I still care about your concerns and still do not want to offend anyone. I always agonise over what I put up. I also don’t want you to feel like complaining to me directly is useless and that I won’t do anything or care about it.

But now that the individual can take matters into their own hands and decide what they don’t want to look at, I think it’s fair that I expect them to do so and turn their filter on. I will try to hold up my end by checking the correct box when I upload- please let me know if I’ve missed anything.

Thanks guys,
Jo
