So the other day I had a meeting with some of my schools advisers and I told the lady that I wanted to be a Concept Artist, But for some reason that didn't seem to work for then, like they didn't take it seriously and keeped pushing for something else. Now one of my teachers knows that I like hands on stuff, I could never been a paper pusher, and art is a hands on thing. But they keep saying that I should go to Sno-isle (its a school that trains you for the specific job and they don't have an art one) and do welding or something. And I feel like they don't see being a Concept artist as a legit career/job. I am also not sure if they think that its like that weird paintings that get splashed around or not, But has anyone else ever gone through something like this? I feel kind of insulted that they think that going to this "sno-isle" is the thing everyone should do.
On the other hand I shouldn't worry about what others think as long as I do what I need to do to get me to where I want to go
