Ya the title is long but sums it up..

An artist friend of my put up a piece of word-art and where instantly machine gunned down with comments that confound and brutally rape the imagination.…

Read there fucking comments..Is it me?! Has the world always been this crazy stupid??? We can argue with rather the piece of art executed or communicated fully what it was getting at. But we can not argue non sequitur's against it's philosophy because that is sophistry!! At the very least this artist were seriously trying to articulating what many high artist bitch about daily to ourselves. Ya the shit art we have to make.."Pot boilers" there technically called so we can get to the real art that the spirit/deepest inner self calls forth to be born...Its not bitterness it is truth. Kudos ghostwalker! I may not have enjoyed your work as much as I should simply because of genre preferences, but I do respect the fact that you draw way better then me, but by god the fact that you said this statement..You Lady are an artist in my book now! We are not simple mindless drones turning out art work like car parts. If your doing that your a crafter not an artist. We artist our the high priest and priestess of dreams Par Excellence. Our power derives not from mercantile law, but ecclesiastical law that is above all nation states and transnational identities even religion itself! For we invoke the nameless within!!! I know the terminology is couched in spiritual wording so my apologies to my atheist friends out there, but it was necessary to bring terms used in ambassadorial/heraldic law to define the problem/solution that we used for thousands of years of civilization both East and West. For without it none of us have sanctuary!

Yeah, I pretty much opened you up to my sucky art life, haven't I last night?

Told you that I have an art degree that is literally worthless.  I work at a job that pays below where most states would pay for the job I work at, like almost 3 or 4 dollars below.

I'm literally at the poverty line.

I'm having to become an artist all on my own with no support from the artist community outside of the random 13 year old who thinks dragons are awesome!

The only daily deviation I got, which I told you how much I got in favs and comments for, was due to me selling myself out for what was popular at the time during the pop culture craze of late 2011 early 2012.

And I live in a highly uncultural state that only values a hard day's work of menial farming, and think that being a hard working artist is being lazy.  Because I won't go out there and shovel pig shit for 10 bucks an hour.

And on top of that, that's what my family thinks too.  Yeah, I have a cousin who states that she'd kill for my talent.  My mother thinks my artwork is "cute", and my stepfather laughs at me when I tell him how hard it is to be an artist in the state of Tennessee.  And that I'm doing this by myself, with no help from anyone.  Hardly any leads and I'm lucky to even get this far.
