And this is why I'm profiting of every moment that I have now because I know it will be much harder for me to continue this passion when I'll have a job and kids and a family.
Still very cool and very true and deep quote.

So true.
Back when I was in middle and high school,I was one of the three best artists,Joey,Scott,and meby the time we graduated, one of them,Joey,her mother broke her dream of being one,so it was just me and the Scott.Both of us still draw.
This quote is very true because as you grow up,you change different directions,most don't have much creativity,some have their dreams broken,some don't have time,etc. so it's hard to keep doing what you love.

I have another, seen on a postcard. I think it's from an anonymous source.
"Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional."

You're more likely to be "unsuccessful" by modern society's standards if you follow the path of art as an adult (much harder to make money and live the "American Dream"). You're taught to delve into the business world as you grow older, because that's where the money is. Being artistically creative does not help with paperwork or following orders, so it is discouraged. That's what I make of it.

I love the lyric by Busdriver, when he says,"Kids...if you want to piss off your parents, show interests in the arts!" :lol:

I enjoy this poster very much.

True enough. Most people lose their creativity somewhere down the line and then are impressed by those who have the ability to create. It's unfortunate that they do not realize that simple perseverance would make them plenty capable of basic drawing.

However, there is always that defining aspect of skill versus talent.

i think i see the point made. as children, we are encouraged to be creative. but as we grow older we are "trained", if you will, that you can't be creative in a way. that the only way of making it in the "real world" is the "standard" suit and tie "zombie" job. yes some people manage to avoid loosing their creative spark in the steamline of "comformist" work but s many are completely enslaved by the "do this and that, right here right now" schedule that they no longer desire to acknowledge their creativity.
just what i think it means. not going to debate over it.

From one side I like this poster, from the other I don't.

The part I dislike is showing a working man as something negative. Some people like their job, some people find it fun... and hell, some people even make "art" out of anything, no matter how boring that is.
A friend of mine who studies physics told me that he has never seen something as beautiful as "the theory of relativity".
If someone can see that ammount of beauty in something, then that something is "art".


Now, I believe you showed a man in a suit simply because is the easier way to show someone who is "un-artist"; someone who only does his job, something repetitive and doesn't enjoy it.
So forgive me if I'm being a little pesky. :P


About the part I like: the message that being an artist is not about a "gift", but something everyone can be. Is only a matter of practice, work and curiosity. If you have all those 3, sooner or latter you will be good.
Of course, "gifted" people will be "good" A LOT sooner, but that's pretty much it.
If you have no "gift", then it'll just take you longer.

i agree with what your saying, but you have to remember that this is supposed to be inspiring to artists. it has nothing to do with a suit, just a grown man.

I'll quote myself:

I know I was being a little bit pesky... sorry :XD:
