Quit Apologizing for Liking Hillary Clinton



This election has been ugly. I had thought by now we could be proud to proclaim our support for Hillary Clinton, the democratic nominee. That our party would pull together and celebrate such a historic moment. But that's not what I'm experiencing. If you're a Donald Trump voter, this video isn't for you. If you are a Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, or Bernie Sanders or Bust voter, this video isn't for you. This video is for everyone who says I'm With Her, but then feels the need to apologize for it because she isn't "perfect."

Let's stop apologizing for being stoked about one of the most intelligent, experienced, articulate candidates we've ever had and work together to make this happen!

Mean Comments with Intern: Analyzing My Bland and Amateur Crap - Vlog 21 - Paul Richmond Studio



Since I began my art career, I've had a rule that I don't read comments on articles and news stories about my work because that can be dangerous territory. Somehow after a few glasses of wine one night in my studio, Intern managed to convince me to break this rule! Watch as we go through some mean comments analyzing my "bland and amateur crap." Intern, why did you think this would be a good idea?!?

One Pulse




I've been to Pulse Orlando and like so many people, I've been shaken up all day by this horrific tragedy. The best way I know how to come to terms with something inexplicable is to create, so I'm really grateful to Traxler Tees for partnering with me to release this tshirt design I created to represent solidarity and to show support for the victims. ALL of the proceeds will go to the GoFundMe account that has been established for this tragedy. Please consider ordering one and help me spread the word: http://traxlertees.com/products/one-pulse-support-t-shirt

Tying the Knot: Crafty Creepies Ties & More w/ Joshua Snyder-Hill - Vlog 18 - Paul Richmond Studio



Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Today I'm hanging out with my friend Joshua Snyder-Hill and he shows me how he embroiders custom ties and other goodies for his business Crafty Creepies! I first met Joshua and his husband Steve when they organized a bus trip for 25 LGBT couples (including my husband and me) to Washington DC so we could get married in front of the Supreme Court prior to the overturning of DOMA. Steve Snyder-Hill is well known for being the "booed soldier" who asked a question about Don't Ask Don't Tell during a 2011 Republican Presidential Debate that made headlines because none of the candidates stood up for him when the audience acted like a bunch of jerks.

Pray Away the Gay : Christian Conversion Therapy for Homo Sinners


Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Intern (Aaron Anderson) and I found an article online about Christian conversion therapy and decided to spend the afternoon learning to "pray away the gay." Since we are both deeply afflicted homo sinners, we knew that if these instructions could cure us of our homosexuality, they would work for anyone! Join us as we ask Jesus to prune our bush and make us fruitful for Christ by going through a series of ridiculous tasks that include expelling demons, reading the bible with guidance, sucking up to bullies, bro bonding, baptism, and more...

Things that Piss Off Artists : Bootlegs, Scams, & Thieves - Vlog 16 - Paul Richmond Studio



Did you like? Subscribe: http://bit.ly/1lTU4Yv

Being an artist is awesome! Being taken advantage of isn't. Sadly, the two often go hand in hand. Here are some recent experiences I've had with bootlegs, scams, and thieves - including a follow up on my issues with copyright infringement on eBay. While all of these things suck, my hope is that emerging artists who watch this won't feel discouraged, but empowered to value yourselves and your work enough to stand up against all the jerks out there.
