    I didn't even know he was in town. I would have checked it out if I had known.

    It's quite a gift to be able to inspire people and Jason certainly has it.

    Jason M quote ... "It's easier to teach an artist how to use the tools, than to teach someone who knows the tools to be an artist"

    that single line is more relevant now than ever before,
    thanks Jason

    Youre right there man. As someone who was kicking around with little direction, no money, drinking myself into an early grave and generally wasting my time, the opportunity J gave me has changed my whole life, given me a direction (and more work than i can do!) and working with my crew of young geniuses has become my favourite day of the week.

    If youre an artist or a designer, and maybe had to learn your skills the hard way on your own, before the internet, please take 10 minutes from your day and pass on your knowhow to folks in the Critique section, those young people are where you were once, and your help can really make a difference to their learning and their lives.
    Plus often they become friends.
    And if youre in a career you hate and always wanted to support yourself from art, check out TAD, its fantastic.

    Wow. As someone who always feels like I'm back at square one, this is truly inspirational. Just draw everyday, that's the secret, as simple as it sounds. Lurking in these forums really makes me push myself to get better and draw a little every night.

    This video really braught home to me, especially with him talking about mindcandyman, how AWESOME life/art is and can be, and how inspiring this all is. journeys...all going on concurrently, just AWESOME!

    seriously, i also learned when he kept saying 'something's broken, this is garbage... so i looked at...", how, truly, he has pulled himself up and MADE SOMETHING!
    crafted with his bare hands. you know?

    we get so fucking used to the slick hard sell from business execs, i actually really appreciate seeing him a bit worn out, because at least you know it's genuine!
    it's not a pre-fabricated sales-pitch, using statistics on how to best suck people in. it's a living, breathing person with a real personality, however many strengths and weaknesses.

    and for all the whining, fighting, crying that has gone on here and about tad (i still don't know why?),
    it's an incredible achievement, a lot of people have made a REAL measureable impact to the art world.

    so here's to conceptart.org and the future.

    note to self:
    just remember, all the time you're spending not drawing, others ARE drawing, sooo, it's your choice but,
    how will you feel after doing whatever it was you did to avoid having to face yourself?

    That was an interesting talk. Though, I kept thinking about how to paint that shadow across his face and how the light looked on his arms when he moved them around so I got distracted a couple of times. Oops.

    But yeah, very inspirational, and interesting to hear what the guy behind this forum is about. I was blown away by the bit about the guy with the iron lung. Thats crazy. But I can also relate because I can only draw/paint for so long before my shitty sight shuts down and I get eyestrain and headaches and have to stop for a while.

    But I think if people are hungry enough and dedicated enough, they'll do what they have to to get where they want to be. It's great to know there are people like Jason Manley out there fighting for art and for the folks like us who want to learn and improve but don't necessarily have the funds or time to go full time to art schools.

    Good stuff, and long live CA.
