    Am I An Artist

    I stare with you at the colored palettes on the wall, Chosen, judged, and hung like captured men. You see something there, I see it in you. You stare, you gasp, you cry. I see some things, too; but you don’t see it in me. I look and others gasp, others cry. Your feelings wash...

    I've been in such a bad place emotionally lately

    and I haven't been able to get myself out of it, I realize that I need to start drawing again. The only problem is, I'm a portrait artist and I need to be able to print out my references, but my computer/printer hasn't worked in months. I don't know what to do, someone help /:

    One day, while using Google images,

    shockingly, I found my painting online! I clicked once, zoomed in and couldn’t believe it. But then, I knew, it was impossible, for I haven’t ever uploaded any of my creative-blurbs online before. So I really looked closely, and found out that it was actually someone else...

    that is created using only a computer? I know many find it to be not 'art' at all, and am curious as to what EP artists think.I much prefer creating in the more traditional ways most of the time, but I see the advantage that computer programs offer, mainly saving time, and...

    I am a Thief. Whenever I go,

    I steal. I take pictures of beautiful images. And I keep them all, all of them for free, in a drawer of a pile of my existing memories. The memories, which may be drawn out later again, by me. I need to gain the access to it by the only key I own, I refuse to share. I don’t...
