People at the present moment don’t entirely “get it”, but keep seeing it become a more prominent thing. Why would you study online? Jut go to the college! Is a frequent comment, similarly as – it’s not the same as real studying. Last time I checked, you were sitting on your computer at home typing your essay so yeah, it’s pretty similar, actually. But there’s more to it and let me tell you why!
Someone said “You should be thankful to have all that fancy tech to make your art! Not all artists have that! Some only have a pencil and paper.” Artists create in various ways, whether it’s some paints on canvas or a graphics tablet for computer art, maybe coffee splatter on a wall (to each their own, right?) So this time I want to talk about the clash of skill and technology.
The summer is ending, passing by with flying colors of good and great days, and some not as wonderful. Overall it has been fairly good to me, filled with some adventures, some new thoughts, some new ideas and some new characteristics. But what is there yet to come?
Being an artist is something that you choose, because it’s what you want to do, not what you have to do. While going through the phases of determining if you consider yourself an artist or if this is just a hobby, you feel like having a sense of individuality and style is the first thing you need. You want to be recognized for this thing that you do. Either your drawing style, your colour choices or anything else that is consistent throughout your work. But that is the very wrong way of beginning your journey as a creative.
