    Who said "drawing without self improvement is masterbation?"

    Hello!

    Im looking to get a shirt with the quote " drawing without self provement is masturbation" which i have seen on the forums in some signitures.

    I would however like to put credit to the individual who is being quoted, and to know if the quote is even correct at all and that i am not paraphrasing.

    Mostly i believe it will be great motivator for anyone who reads it, as well as proding a little bit of humor for when i go to drawing class.

    Kindly
    Liam Harvey

    Tyler Durden said self-improvement is masturbation. Don't really know who related it to art.

    "Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."

    Women can masturbate as well.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    I just feel I stepped off the curb and stumbled into the Twilight Zone here...and I like it!

    Now that the thread has veered off its original course, let's discuss masturbation!

    Question 1:

    i hear that masturbation makes your palms hairy - confirm/deny?

    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    You are missing the point... which is to masturbate while you are drawing, and becoming a better artist!

    What is considered "drawing without self improvement"? Surely on some level any form of drawing will result in improvement.

    Wait sorry I'm going off topic, I'll fix that with a masterbation comment...

    "When a lady masturbates is called a hand job right?"

    ...make that a sexist comment, muhaha.
