Hey, gang. Your host here. Still working out my health issues but rest assured, I'm improving daily and my future is bright. No worries there. I'm here and I care about this place and I care about you.
Check out this incredible little comic... and take it to heart. Remember, regardless of what you think of your talent, of what you do for a living, of what others say, of what you think your future in art might or might not be - you are an ARTIST! Never give up what feeds your soul, fills your heart, and stimulates your intellect. Whether you are already a very successful professional artist or art is just a hobby - remember that you do it not for fame or wealth but because you have to. It's your nourishment. It's why you're alive.
