  Artist Offended
An interesting post over at The Art Life blog, where an artist gets nasty over a little criticism. Sure I have been offended, possibly even hurt by criticism before but it was unconstructive and hurtful criticism, certainly nothing as mild as this. And I can't remember attacking the critic like this..
"Unlike you, coward, I shall stab you in the front. Keep on hiding behind your nowheresville little blog, right where you belong, you insignificant shit eating maggot. Never insult my family name again"
Who would want to be a critic?!
I remember an art teacher told me that if I can't handle my work being torn apart and criticized than I am in the wrong game. Or I'm sure it's also possible to avoid criticism by keeping your work in the studio, or doing predictably boring work.

oh my! anyone who gets bent out of shape should think twice about an art career - its a brutal nasty world at times - and frankly everyone is going to be considered crap by someone.

ps. thanks for your blog its great :)
 
...or worse than crap-like criticism, plain ignored! I get it all the time...just ignore me and after a while I will go away like some kind of nasty zit. :)

Butt really, I like this blog of yours. How on earth do you keep up with all this stuff?

Cheers to you!
 
Thanks for the kinds words. And I keep up with all this stuff by spending too much time online.. and not enough time in the studio!
