Hello. I’m Karl. REFSHEETS is a depository of image arrangements I made over half a decade ago, and has not been an active tumblr for years.
I made REFSHEETS back in 2010 when I was really bored and new to Tumblr. I had previously worked as a graphics assistant at a SUPER-shitty job with loads of free time, and I had discovered the website ffffound, which sources SO many images from tumblr. So I surfed ffffound and discovered tumblr, wound up saving thousands and thousands of images into a folder at work, and then in my copious amounts of on-the-clock free time I would pick out images I liked and mush them all together in photoshop to create a ‘reference sheet.’ I would also print them out on the company’s color printer, because why not.
When the company and I parted ways, I transferred all of the refsheets on a thumb drive along with all the source files and put them on my computer at home. Then I started this tumblr account and posted three refsheets a day until all 666 of them were online, and then just let it be.
Embarrassingly, there are little to no proper credits anywhere. At the time it never even occurred to me to keep track of where’s what because I originally was not making these for internet purposes, and also ffffound and tumblr were super-shitty at proper crediting at the time. I don’t own ANY of these images. It’s ALL borrowed. It’s ALL kind of a mess.
If you are the owner of any of these images and would like credit or would like them taken down, you can message my REFSHEETS account for sure and let me know. I thought about deleting my account and the tumblr, but the problem is I have another tumblr attached to this account, and it’s the tumblr I actually semi-regularly use.
So If you came across REFSHEETS because I’ve liked your post or followed you and you guys are checking me back, I know my account is called ‘refsheets,’ but please head on over to http://karltoonist.tumblr.com.
Thank you for your time,
