Marvel Editor In Chief Akira Yoshida Unironically Tells Aspiring Artists To Use Real Names

Oh the irony.



Source: Twitter

Marvel Editor-In-Chief Akira Yoshida took to Twitter this week to give aspiring artists advice when contacting an editor to show their work. His advice started out straightforward and innocently enough, as he tweeted under his pseudonym C.B. Cebulski about linking to online galleries.

 

 

His second piece of advice is that if you have to send files to editors, send small files.

 

His third piece of advice is where the magic happens. Akira Yoshida tells artists to "ALWAYS use your real name."

 

But if artists use their real names, how can they ever aspire to become Editor-In-Chief? Artists, just create a pseudonym to get around company policy of double dipping as an editor and a creator. It's worked 100% of the time. Sometimes it leads to a promotion. Just ask Yoshida.

... because it came back to bite him and he doesn't want others to make the same mistakes he did? :smt102

How dare he learn from his mistakes! That son of a bitch! :smt011

As an EiC for Marvel, doesn't he know he's supposed to blame the fans for all of his bad decisions?

It's not that he hasn't learned his lesson, but that he doesn't mention that it is a lesson he learned the hard way (although, given he failed upwards, it doesn't seem to have been all that hard for him) is what gives rise to the appearance of hypocrisy. He needs to flag up why they need to use their own names and why it was wrong when he didn't. If he doesn't then it looks like a classic case of don't do what I do, do what I say.
