    Back in school, did you get bullied? :D

    Just to prove my theory. I think that most kids who later grew up to be artists didn't exactly have the easiest time when they were in school, and that's why they got all, like artsy and awesome and stuff What about you?

    It has no relevance... I had alot of friends who got bullied that hate art, and likewise a bunch of artists who were never bullied.

    I got a fair bit of stick from the more stupid of the people at school...

    But no, generally I've just always done art, not particularly in reaction to anything, other than I like to.

    hmmm...yeah got bullied for a few years and went into a lot of small fights. But the last years were pretty nice and i found lots of friends. But i don`t started with art because of the bulliing...i drew before that. It has more to do that I was the glasses wearing nerd...

    I was bullied once or twice but nothing to pin my self down as a victim. In fact at times I was the bully due to who I was hanging with.

    Most bullies would steer clear of me because I was tall and broad, about 6ft back then, aways the tall kid. Even when I stood up to the supposed toughest kid in our year, all he did was "okay, meet me in -insert location-", he did not hit me there and then and niether did he take up on his offer afterwords.

    I have to admit, some bullying did go on through primary school (aged 5 - 11). But then again when I was that age my home village was 'rough'.

    Good times I hardly care to think of.

    Cool, and interesting I didn't really expect anything different.

    Same goes with me, I didn't have too much friends but even if I got into fights that wasn't what made me pick up art.

    Nope, not really. Well, got in some trouble with a guy who was rather difficult at the time, but we turned best friends some time after, funny enough. The other, real bullies didn't care about me because I was pretty good at being invisible.

    Also, stop making up theories about what artists are and how they became artists and how they couldn't be artists if some things in life didn't happen. Just do it.

    No, but I am anti-social you could say, so not doing much or going anywheres with people gave me time to draw.

    When i was a child i was pretty "popular" funny little kid, and i really loved to do artsy things, drawing included, after that i stoped beign funny and popular and slowly i stoped beign so artsy, until just 2 years ago when i started to study how to draw. I think we like art stuff becase we find something in it that pleases us, thats why we do it, i have no idea actually .

    I wasn't bullied, but I was always the shy girl and spent most of my time either studying for school or drawing. I wouldn't say I'm shy anymore, but I'm not extroverted either, I still prefer spending a lot of time on my own. Mainly drawing, of course!

    first i need to know what you mean by bullying.

    Heres mine.

    If you call someone concord because they have a long nose thats teasing. But once you use that long nose to open up a yogurt pot that becomes bullying.
