    Daz, when will you feel you are an 'artist'?

    So does that mean you don't consider anyone else an artist unless they produce work at that level?

    Modernist, Abstract, Proportionless, Perspectiveless and Compositionless are aspects that can be attributed to all sorts of art, alot of which can contradict the other.

    Really? Surely you're an artist already? If you love expressing yourself through drawing, painting or whatever way you choose, then you are an artist. The word itself isn't a goal. It's not like being a bricklayer or a lawyer. It's great you have the ambition to want to be a 'featured artist', but that list isn't definitive. Everyone can be an artist, but not everyone makes a living out of it. The role of the artist is as diverse as the type of art that fills the world.

    I got 2 sentences into what you wrote then I looked at your sketchbook. I was VERY impressed... by the fact that your work is anything but impressive yet you talk so much about crappy artists.

    That's a lot of tldr about bad artists from someone who is fairly mediocre himself. To make matters worse, what you said has grammar that I would expect from Tarzan if he had a severe mental handicap.

    I'm beginning to think that this thread may merit resurrection of the "Worst of CA" thread. I'm not going to do it just yet, but putting the idea out there, just in case anyone has similar thoughts.

    Haha... please think out of the box, art is bigger than a site...
    That though is everything but creative really. Not than i don't have admiration for the great artists right there, but if you think Art with a capital A just fits in that header and nowhere else, you're so innocent it's ridiculous!

    Haaa internet hate

    Okay okay... so we all get the point that mayyyybe the responses to this thread aren't all from the same perspective as the OP's.

    Though I do know a few people who drink all day, drink all night, then do a grand maximum of 15 hours work on a 6 week paper (15 hours including walking about and buying pre-made materials / images) and hacking something together the night before hand-in, then calling themselves artists / designers... before hitting the booze all weekend again, then asking them why they chose art / design in the first place and getting the answer "Well.. I dunno, just felt like I should study something or something lawl."

    THAT... is something I can totally agree with DazDaryl on.
