I used to feel like that butthead you were dealing with. I felt that way do to ignorance on my behalf. I decided. 10 years ago, to fix that problem and to find the very root of it. I found my answer. The root of my problem was a failed drawing class when I was a freshman in college. Honestly, the teacher did not teach well and took out on his students. I say that because I have since learned what that class taught and whole lot more. All I needed was the right teacher.
My point...your butthead has, likely, been told that he cannot draw, paint, or something else. So, he's stopped any pursuit of art at all. Someday he will recognize the error of ways, and become one of us..sketchbook carrying cool peeps that run around drawing everything. LOL
