Hello Sam, How well do you like tumblr compared to other blog sites? I have been mainly using tumblr as a resource of inspiration and some of my own work, but I have a blogspot that I mainly showcases just my work. I feel like I have been pulled between two worlds. Blogspot doesn't seem to have the same publicity as Tumblr... and tumblr feels like it is no better than deviantart as a popularity contest. Which do you recommend for a focus? Should I make another portfolio/blog with just my work?
You're an extremely talented artist that could represent anything. Why do you choose to depict celebrities and iconic figures? I believe your artwork could have so much more merit and can contribute much more to society then just entertainment. You even have your symbol as the golden spiral, which I find rather smug for an artist who creates "fan art". I don't intend to offend, it just greatly bothers me to see such a talented artist create advertisement and I would like to know why.
I know a girl who went to art school in Georgia, only to drop out because "her teachers were too mean to her" when they would critique her work. Do you think that is sincerely the case, or is it more likely that she did not have the work ethic?
