god i love cloudy afternoons
just a thought i've had as of lately: most of you are taking art seriously, some of you are even in artistic careers and schools. or you want to go that way, if you're not in there yet.
here's the thing: how many of ya are just interested in drawing stuff from time to time as a hobby? :I
of course, you probably care about getting better, doing certain things you have in mind and all. but you just don't... want to (or can) go straight into an art-based lifestyle. even if you love it.
haha! here's the awkward revelation for me. i do love to draw and make stuff up, i dream of making my own comics and paintings someday. but i'm on college studying something (at first sight)
completely unrelated to art (engineering)... and the truth is i'm afraid to take art seriously.
even though the excuse i'm always telling for it is "i want to learn by myself, i don't want no teacher to tell me what i'm doing is wrong".
...i still believe that, though. with you guys i'm learning the basics (why else do you think i'm so supportive ewe, i'm basically ripping all of you off
) and i only want to do art as a hobby.
that way i'm constructing myself, sort of.
with that in mind, i won't even charge a dime by something i do (remember that), won't ever stick to deadlines (fuck, i've tried), only do it because it's fun. it's really damn fun
that means i'd probably be left behind by most of people reading this when they get better.
that'll be fun to see (and it's fun to see as of now! freaking younger lads xD)plus there's awesome artists who take art as a hobby themselves... it's all a matter of attitude really, of loving it
