Life should be fun. Art should make you smile.
always do your best ..
Keep moving forward...times are hard a lot of the time but you have to keep creating. People may say things that might hurt your feelings, but don't let their criticisms stop you. On the other hand, be realistic about your talents, try different things to find out what you do best. The only one who can stop you is you!
Just have a look at my photos.
Depending on the assignment.
MY message...? Strive to leave your mark and to do the best that you can. When the visual aspect of a piece of art merge seamlessly with its meaning,you have beautiful imagery.
Love your job and you will be happy.
Actually I don't have any message for the viewer, except for them to look and see what is possible. I want them to find their own message, there own meaning, my message should not be their message.
Every successful art piece has a message-- this is, afterall, the job of an artist-- to visually convey an idea. Beyond the surface of that, however, I like to think that there is a greater message behind the art-- hopefully that my art and/or lifestyle could in some way make a positive impact on somebody... even if it's just a flicker of inspiration. It would be great if I could help people believe that it is their birthright to manifest their dreams and make a living doing what they love... and that's why I think it's so important that artists be INVOLVED in our communities in whatever way we can. However, at the bottom of all this is a fundamental need to create-- I really have no choice about being an artist, I just HAVE to make stuff ALL the time, whether or not my art/lifestyle actually makes a difference to anyone... though I hope it does, or will someday.
To me, the only successful works of art are the pieces that seem un-finished, that make you want more. making a nightmarish impression upon the viewer often asking more than telling. ďAs my concentration focuses closer and closer to my medium, Iíll begin removing the visual comfort zones, stripping away layers of propriety, bringing the image down to itís base idea while the room Iím in seems to disappear, time passes at a different pace, and hours later Iím staring at something I hardly remember doing.Ē
Usually, my client's message is my message and an author's context is my context, and I'm very creative within the bounds. It's always fun to work for a company whose products and services I appreciate. In greeting cards, my message and context are more personal; I make cards I'd want to send or receive, whether they express thoughts on a sensitive subject or break someone's chops.
In short, I suppose, to mirror the world in all its messy, schizophrenic, amoral, mutually-exclusive glory, and then attempt some kind of synthesis. I have a major interest in humor, also, so often times just push for pure entertainment, but I don't think there's any Jeffersonian wall of separation between the two - The freest and breeziest fantasy can ring true if the emotions and worldview behind it are complex and honest, while an attempt to be serious can fall flat if it's over-calculated and stolid.
Science is a powerful influence on me, and I'm fascinated by its attempts to bring together disparate notions and by its Big Ideas, so I've also often found myself working as its cheerleader.
