i try to post things...well...concepts and imagery to ... get reactions... i assume people come and look and consider, but... being timid is simply not learning anything.
like what the image i am posting now says written and visually. sure it is just a rough concept drawing, but... hopefully the whole idea of seeing beyond the reality ...on into fantasy things...
without being stiffly paranoid you will get slammed with negative criticisms...
melting your ego into some 'Dorthonian rainbow pool'.
sucks to be jumping up and down verbally in a virtual sound proof black hole.
so yah post...bust ass to create and post...nothing happens...like screaming into a valley only to just hear your own scream.
people do look at the works you post. they read the comments. like phantoms, they come and go. cranking up their gizmos of the net...seeing what is there without comments. like this post.
i lived in a city in the 70s. there was this crank breather every night for weeks.
always calling at the same ungodly hour.
i usually was toasted on some still wine i got cheap...tired from art classes... wondering what this person wanted.
so i said:"hey dude. you have been calling for weeks. i was wondering when you were going to talk to me. i have been waiting [like waiting for post replies].
but, you just breath. are you alright. i mean you can talk, right?"
so this meek little whisper voice says:
"yes, i can talk."
so i replied:"then lets talk."
but the meek dude replies:"oh no...i am too scared you won't like me."
so i replied:"ok, i go to class around 8 each morning. you can see me from the hill. if i don't scare you then come on down and we will talk."
nothing, but i got one more call.
the meek dude said:"i saw you. you look like a nice man. thank you for caring."
>>>>>>>>>>i go to some effort to create thought provoking stuff. i am not commercial at all. it is for fun. i could just draw without sharing. i enjoy the whole weirdness of the process. as a friend said of my work:"you are not some hack." she is a master degree museum curator. so i will always remember her words.
posts are words...be they tenderly complimentary or roughly critical...
so i hope the viewers and readers read this: input is like sap in a tree...life giving to the artists amusing your surfing.
