This is just something I've noticed and have found kinda odd and at times annoying. I just graduated from a 2 year art school with my Associates degree in Illustration and I'm going to go to MICA in the fall to get my BFA. I graduated with a final 3.79 GPA and i got a perfect 4.0 GPA in the final semester, but it seems most friends and family I tell don't seem impressed or care. The most common response I get is "Well, it is art school." Which kinda pisses me off every time I hear it.
Well I didn't post this just to vent, I wanted to see if anyone has any kind of similar experiences where their own art achievements get unnoticed or written off by people who don't know or understand just how hard art really is, Please feel free to post.
