    I agree with this entirely.

    Bouguereau was such a hack.

    And Frazetta? Man, what a loser.

    Without that 45 x 74 pixel tag, you are nothing.

    Restricting yourself to that train of thought as an artist is like wishing to be an Aladdin-style genie, man. ULTIMATE COSMIC POWER OF CREATION... iiiiity bitty living space. If that is the bar you're setting just to be considered a ~*~*~*~*REAL ARTIST*~*~*~*~, you need to get off of CA for a while and go check out what the rest of the art world has to offer, Jafar.

    I aspire to be an illustrator, not an artist.

    People that define themselves as Artists are just people who like to bitch!

    Well, in Dante's Inferno wasn't there a level of Hell that was actually no so bad which was reserved for the "Noble Pagans" like Aristotle and Socrates who didn't have a chance at Heaven because they had no way of knowing about Christianity? Maybe there's a level of not-artist status that these guys have achieved...

    Everyone can claim to be an artist, it’s not some title of respect that you have to
    earn first and there is no judge who hands those out.

    It’s just a word and the general impression this word gives people is that you are
    poor or a looser or both. Artist is such a vague word, it does not even remotely
    hint what the person does, it could be a cartoonist, a mime or one armed blind
    singer asking your for a $.

    Honestly, I could not care less what others call themselves. People claim shit all day,
    fast-food restaurants claim to have healthy food, politicians claim to tell the truth,
    husbands claim not to have affairs, some claim to be connected to god, others claim
    to have been abducted by aliens, parents claim to be always right and kids claim to
    know it better. You claim that some don’t deserve to be called artists and I claim that
    giving a shit about it is worth next to nothing.

    there are good Australian artists, its just that our main schools all seem to kinda suck and all the artists that go there have told me they didn't really learn anything that made them better artists.


    I'm all about post-apocalyptic land scapes, shotgun bearing demons, images of people abusing themseles and futuristic shoot outs. All the maccabre, horror and cyber-punk future stuff. Dont really like much else. If I had my way, movies would be nothing but horror, explosions, fight scenes, blood and comedy.

    Some people expresses themselves in a figurative manner, others not.

    Some people mistify what they do, others no.

    Some people do it for the money, others no.

    So, why can´t be friends?

    Understanding that you get a better idea of why i felt so fumed about it, I know in many countries like America you have to pay upfront to study at college but in Australia you can pretty much study anything but figurative art without a penny in your pocket., i think if you understand that you'll understand why i get so fumed about the non-figurative styles.

    Its also quite possibly why lkjhgfdsa thanked me for my post, because he probably knows about the degenerate state of the Australian art scene, in that it ONLY funds the non-figurative styles.
    You worry too much... there are some great Aussie artists here on CA.

    All play and no work makes Daz a dull boy. Watch 'Breakfast at Tiffany's', that'll put a smile on your face!

    @Poshspice. I prefer Blake Edwards "Skin Deep". Makes me guffaw!!!

    Not terribly highbrow, though...

    Lighten up, smell the flowers.

    Then we wouldn't have "Amelie" which despite my preference for sci fi, fantasy, horror, historical epics etc may actually be my favourite film. And it's a romantic comedy.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211915/

    Audrey Tautou is awesome. I would cheerfully watch her make toast for two hours.
    Despite that, she is predictably excellent in one of the best films ever made, go see it.

    Tossup between that, "Aliens" "Gladiator" and "The Matrix"..

    Or indeed "Angel-A", "Leon" director Luc Besson makes a happy and criminally underrated comedy.
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473753/
    Edit: Am I the only person who actually saw that film and liked it? I thought it was really good..Ho hum.

    Seriously, go watch it. If you don't he'll just be exec producer on more "Transporter" films and then it will be kinda your fault.
