something for artists to think about
whats the difference between a friend and a fan? some people are definite friends ie: Xian, Kat and Reaper just to name a couple, but ive really been wondering lately. ive met Xian in person, Kat and i chat nearly every day about thongs and crazy stuff and Reaper and i are always talking about god knows what...and its fun. but most of the people on my LJ "friends" list i have never even heard of/spoken to on a forum, IM, wolfhome, e-mail whatever. some may just be fans, who i appreciate very much, and some just may be well wishers, etc etc, but most of whichi have never talked to. i think im gonna do some friends list editing. please dont take it personally, i think i just need to narrow it down, and perhaps this will give you a chance to get to know me better by talking to me rather than reading my LJ? you know where to reach me...

As for another difference?
Fans pay money, friends give money. ;)

Yay! *huggles*

You're one of my only good furry friends. I have a TON of people on my LJ Friends list and only a tiny handful of them I actually call friends.

I just feel too guilty to get rid of them :(

My difference is a fan only likes my work.
Friend likes ME or has interest in me.

I find my friends like no matter what I do, or talk about. My fans really only like what drew them to me fan art, or my normal art.
Friends also go to ALOT more effort too. But then most of my fans seem to hide/be afraid of me.. I supose drawing dead things doesn't help ones "I'm friendly I SWEAR" apperance =P

I would love to get to know you better thorn other then livejournal. Just I don't know your AIM name. I've looked on your info for it, but didn't find it.. I supose I should email you.. Oh well. I apolgize if I seem like I'm going to no effort. Just I am dreadfully shy online, like right now I'm dieing and wana crawl into corner for writing this..

I consider you a friend. :) Since I got to know you as a person before I ever really saw your art I wouldn't say I'm a fan. I like you as a person while at the same time appreciate you as an artist. :) *hugs*

Hey Thorn,
I'm sorry I never introduced myself when I added you to my "friends" list. If you want, I'll take you off.

I guess you could say I'm a "fan," but I'd prefer the term 'artisic peer.' I found you through desertcoyote's journal, and just thought you seemed like a cool person. <:)
