Artist: Daniel Maidman


Medium: Drawing

Censored By: Instagram

Was there notification of removal? If so, what was the reason given?

Yes, and yes – nudity. Community standards/nudity.

What date were you censored?


Was there the opportunity to appeal? If so, did you appeal and what was the response?

No; the standard appeal button did not appear on the original post or a repost.

What, if any, were the consequences of the removal for you? 

Unclear. I was already shadowbanned.


This was a startling one – it was a. a drawing and b. so heavily patterned as to be difficult to identify anyway. However, Savannah Spirit was tagged in it (it was a drawing based on one of her photographs), and my posts linked to her are frequently deleted.
