|My current WIP.|
There is a big part of myself that believes being able to do that can be considered artistic in a sense but there is also a contradictory side of myself that refuses to believe that what I do can be considered "art".
We can argue though, that even though I can create other people's artwork close to what they imagine, I can also deviate out onto a little cutesy design It's not a skill that I have focused on very much in the past but recently, it has come to the fore front. It all started with the little turtles.

Well, those are some questions which I still haven't figured out the answer to but there is one story that I can consider when I sit down and think about this issue. It is that at the last convention here, I was in the artists alley amongst all the other wonderful artists and looking at the drawings they were selling. At this point there was a conversation happening between myself and my friend, whom I share a table with discussing whether or not what I do is considered art.
A person dressed up in a pirate outfit walked past and overheard the conversation and told me something that I think might stick with me. He told me that my creations were definitely considered art and that would mean that I was an artist. And when I sell my creations to people then that makes me a professional artist.
It was something that I have never considered before. Now if you ask me the next time you see me, whether or not I do consider myself an artist...I will probably still tell you that I'm not sure. It is probably an issue that will come to mind a lot on and off and it'll probably be a decision that will never be made. Either way, that one memory that happened at the convention will stick for a very very long time.
The smallest things in life are the ones that sometimes make all the difference.
