Thread: Art in your relationships.

Art in your relationships.
After a few girls, i noticed something odd. I dont know if anyone else had this happen, but one or two of my ex's was with me because she was really marveled by my art. Kind of like more of a fan then a girlfriend.
Then it got me thinking, i usually make gifts for my girlfriends. A carved wooden rose for valentines, or maybe steel and copper.. well you get the idea. The girls always LOVE it, because they are used to cards/flowers/candy and nothing unique. I have an ex, who to this day keeps my valentine's day present (a wood and copper rose) above her headboard in her room.
Makes you think; how much does your art really impact your personal life, doesn't it? Anyone else have these kinds of experiences?

ever since high school i've made it a requirement that any girl who dates me has to let me draw her. Usually they love it and take it personally and think I'm all romantic and adoring... but I just like having a free model.

I built someone a death machine for their birthday this year.. it was pretty cool, all cardboard and ducttape.
It was for this girl I know, she's my arch-nemisis, so I am trying to destroy her with robots.. its a funny tale.

Since I became "legal" deep in the last century, all of my girlfriends, roommates, female friends, and both wives have been artists. I beginning to detect a trend...

Met my boyfriend on an art site, he's going to do 3D now but it is fun talking about art with him. Gives you a lot of feedback as well.

I'm more of a converter. When I met my bf he said he could'nt draw a stick figure and had no artistic talent whatsoever. The thing is, he used to tell me I should paint this and that, because he had loads of ideas. Well, it took a lot of ingenuity but I've taught him how to paint, he enjoys it and has way more ideas of paintings than he has time to do them. And now we can have 'stay at home and paint' days.

is this topic only reserved for peeps with relationships? Anyway, I dont have anyone in my life right now but I think i've affected some people with my art. I remember sketching at some cafe and then some guy came up to me asking me to sketch him and his daughters. The sketch came up ok but I was able to make them happy. They even said that they would frame it. The feeling was great. This is what I want to do with my Art.

My last girlfriend almost dumped me because I was too busy with my art and didn't share enough time with her.
The one before her didn't care for my passion too much.
My exexex girlfriend thought the whole art-thing made me sexy.
They all loved their birthday gifts, which were either drawn, painted, crafted or all of that.
I have yet to find a girl that is into drawing and arts in general..
someone once told me, all his artsy girlfriends were psychobitches though...

I have found that if you draw at a coffeeshop it can attract quite a bit of attention in the form of people looking discreetly over theyr shoulders at you wondering if your drawing theyr fashionable 80's haircut or not. There have been times when my sketchbook has been passed around the café and I have been showered with praises. Which is humbling in itself as I know that I am a not-so-great artist compared to most, but who doesnt like praises? really?
Anywho.. I´m single ladies.. oooh yah! Come n get it!

Never underestimate the power of sketching to get you attention.

heheheh I thought I was unique for forging a steel rose for one of my girlfriends...now i find out that i'm not alone...
as for girlfriends: I also always draw them, I never take photos or anything... its cooler this way...
I've got most of my girlfriends through my reenactment business though... Chicks always tend to have that "white knight in a shining armour" -fantasy I guess...
What they always get is a chaotic barbarian that loves creating things more than his girlfriends... When girls realise that, thats usually the point when they leave...
Realtionships and art? They don't mix. You cant have both in my oppinion
"How do you know you're good enough?" "You know." "What if you're wrong?" "You find out."
