    Art is not meant to comfort you

    but to disturb you to some degree or give you different feelings.I hate when people shame art for being too creepy or too graphic unless it's p*rn then don't say it's not art.Well is p*rn art...? That's actually a good question I have no freakin idea.But back to main topic don't...

    I'm a artist. I've been drawing ever

    since I was 9 years old. As I got Older, my career paths changed. Now I'm more into psychology. I'm considering on becoming a therapist once i graduate this 2016. Even though my paths has changed. I'll still continue my passion with art as a side job.

    I miss the days that had the time I used to

    create things; I haven't in so long. i crave the feel of the paints on my fingers, the release of emotion and tension as what I am giving life slowly starts breathing on my canvas. I miss breaking the dam that holds back the thoughts which pool in my brain; I want them to flow...

    The funny thing is, I've never actually spent

    much time around other artists. Where I live, art isn't nearly as appreciated as it should be. Because of that I've been more of a closet artist, creating in my free time, but never really sharing much. I also never had the opportunity to discuss art and art related things with...

    I hate I have this talent,

    its so hard to get noticed and its even harder to find a job in this field you can live life off of. I feel like its a hopeless dream no matter how hard I try I will never get to it.

    After my neurological disorder forced me to

    and have been for what seems like centuries but alas it has only been a short 44 years. In the beginning things were done manually then in the 90s we shifted to computers. I was looking through a closet recently and found this piece I did, probably in the 80s for a greeting card...
