Stolen from JAVA

JAVA had this on one of her gallery pages and I think this is really important to get out there.

HOW TO FEEL MISERABLE AS AN ARTIST

(OR WHAT NOT TO DO, UNDERLINE ANY THAT CURRENTLY APPLY)

1. CONSTANTLY COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHER ARTISTS. (I need to STOP this)

2. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY ABOUT WHAT YOU DO AND EXPECT THEM TO CHEER YOU ON.

3. BASE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR ENTIRE CAREER ON ONE PROJECT. (I think last FC's artshow was a delightful surprise but...i doubt it will happen again anytime soon)

4. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW.

5. UNDERVALUE YOUR EXPERTISE.

6. LET MONEY DICTATE WHAT YOU DO. (hahahahahahaha yeah thats me...)

7. BOW TO SOCIETAL PRESSURES.

8. ONLY DO WORK THAT YOUR FAMILY WOULD LOVE.

9. DO WHATEVER THE CLIENT/CUSTOMER/GALLERY OWNER/PATRON INVESTOR ASKS.

10. SET UNACHIEVABLE/OVERWHELMING GOALS. TO BE ACCOMPLISHED BY TOMORROW.
Standup Comedy

Political cartoons? On THIS journal?

I wasn't going to post this because I am honestly nervous of death threats but if people are going to get bent out of shape and not realize how stupid theyre being then good god...so much for free speech. And if this loses me some LJ friends, I'm sorry you couldn't see the humor in human stupidity, good day to you.

I drew a comic based on current events, well, most current events that is, this happens on a regular basis it seems anyway.

Here's the pic that spawned it:



And here's my comic under the cut Collapse )
*facepalm*

What is this world coming to that people feel the answer to something they don't like is violence and flag burning? Yeah...pfft...THAT'LL fix it reeeeal good.
