Attracted To Chaos

What is the difference between a traditional painting and a digital one? The realness of the object? It's tangibility? I would argue that both can obviously exhibit fine artistry and skill - all things being equal, if we were to choose one, we would always want the 'real' thing though. Besides it's tangibility and value as an object - what makes a painting made with physical material so attractive to us? As we have moved into the virtual age a kind of nostalgia has creepd through society. Vinyl record sales have exploded in the past 5 years - an industry many thought would be ground to dust from the digitization of music. Is it just nostalgia that plays a part in this?

What NOT to Be

There are more ideas in the world than lifetimes to do them in - so picking the right ones to pursue is a tricky process. Whether it is a career decision to specialise in this niche or that.

It is something to wake up for in the morning... We'd all work hard if there were a gun to our head, energy is not our problem. So when you feel like you're procrastinating or not working hard enough ask yourself - "are my goals equal to my potential". I

Substance & Sensitivity

Art can just be an image, a beat - it can tap into that innate desire to listen and see something you like. And then it can go deeper. It can be the surface and the immediate while offering depth and challenge. I don't like to say art has to be this or that, anything goes these days and you can generally find an audience who engages with you work how you want it to be engaged with.
