    You might want to go back and delete your duplicate posts, you flooded the forum with them.

    Looks like the scribblings of a toddler in a highchair.
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    If that is actually art and not some toddler's scribbles?

    It's a "modern art" thing, those types of scribbles are produced in their thousands by some modern artists. Do you really think the people are a forum that tends towards traditional figurative art are going to know which one of thousands of modern artists produced it much less which one of their scribbles it was?

    I'd say it's unlikely that anyone here will recognize it.

    I like art AND I come here to diss on people. w00t!

    This thread is the most fun I've had all day. Which really says more about my day than this thread.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Dude, you've been scooped. You're on a scavenger hunt. Somebody got here before you and got that thing ID'd.

    Hence, I *could* identify it, but I'm having too much fun toying with an 'art fan'.

    Liking art does not mean we have to accept every scribble someone calls art as being worthy of attention. Most people know the difference between a refined art and a pseudo intellectual scribbles made by a modern artist who probably attributed it to man's inner struggle.

    You know, I think I'll change my tagline to "suppoobly a art fan."

    That, or have it tattoo'd on my ass.

    Was this directed at me? Ah, thank you, I'm ROFLing.

    I've been working professionally as an artist for seven years now. Does that not give me the right to think that some "art" is garbage?

    i have no professional medical background, but in your condition i'd refrain from excessive ROFLing. hangers are known to fall to the floor, and we don't want to take chances. i'd suggest moderate Rolling On Bed Laughing as an easy alternative.

    Okay. . . I'm just now realizing that the art is actually the scribblings of a toddler in a highchair. Someone please tattoo "duh" across my forehead. I should've said the painting looked like yet another I-wanna-be-highbrow-hotel-lobby-art.

    Well, the best loved elephant is an amazing work of modern art, Freddie Linsky is a genius who merge abstract expressionism and asiatic fine art, and use to convey a deep emotion and philosophic reflexion about the true meaning of life, is also a well presented speech on contemporary conflicts. If you dont see this, is because you are ignorant!!111

    It is also the best way to expend 20 bucks.

    Well, I like it... with a bit of clean up I would like it more I think but even now I feel pleasure looking at it. I'm unfortunately prepared to like it, the composition reminds me Kandinsky's painting and it has the same quality: energetic and cheerful. http://www.uoregon.edu/~hrawling/New...inski_1923.JPG So... my impression is influenced by past experience... I recognize rather than just like the picture... but nevertheless... it is likable.
    I wonder if the child really feel this rhythm and textures and strong composition he got on paper or if he is just having fun.
    My 9 years old sometimes surprises me too with her drawings. sometimes it is a very unexpected take on well known things.

    You should have kept quite, I thought you were being clever!
    At least you have razor-sharp instincts.

    wait, there's an answer to this somewhere? If so, someone post it. Someone mentioned elephant here in a kind of bumbling/confusing manner. I was going to guess a chimp painted it. Is it a chimp or an elephant?
