    Truth in illustration

    A good friend passed this link along to me. I apologise if it's been posted before.
    Any rate, a lot of this rings very true.

    Peace

    Thank you for this link Dan, a very concise reading. As soon as I read the first paragraph, well actually as soon as I read the title, I immediatly thought of a few people I was going to show this to.

    Instead of wearing myself out every time "one of those conversations" begins, I will simply point to this article. Less tiring, less stressing, more articulate, more concise

    True style comes from within not from copying someone else.
    YES! I am so sick of having to relate my work to other artists as if I don't have a style of my own. It really bugs the hell outta me.

    Great link, Dan.

    Oreg...what the hell are you waiting for. The first time I finished this article I thought it should be a sticky!!! But the biggest problem is no one reads stickys.

    I'll bookmark the link. Every single highschool "friend" who believes I'm still pursuing some childish dream will get sent this link.
