Digital Art vs Classic Pen stroke.

2017-08-12 17:56:56 by AdventVoice

So I have not done it yet, but the more I think about it, the more I want to work with a digital program for some of my artistic ideas. Render in a stetch through pen and polish it with a digital medium. The only problem are the people around me that say I should get a real job.

That art will never pay your rent and it is a waste.

I wonder if that is how writers and poets and musicians feel. That the years of schooling to learn a meduim was a waste. Sigh....I sigh heavy because everything I have worked for, years of  thoughts and ideas have fallen on deaf ears and little studio time. I suppose with friends like mine who needs enemies right.

We have morphed into a socitey that feels one's occupation is only worth the green it is printed on and I wonder if the world of the arts will become like the national parks or 4th of july back yard barbeques, "you won't know what you've got till it is gone, a big back yard turned into a paved parking lot."

If people are willing to commoditise art that much, then they are responsible for art dying.

Can you imagine a world with no art? With no new ideas, with no voice. A silent world is what is shown to me and I fear the silence most of all.
