Thoughts. Just thoughts.
*Disclaimer - This isn’t supposed to encompass all disciplines of art, so apologies if this doesn’t apply to you in your situation.
I think the assholes who devalue art are more often than not jealous and bitter. Bitter because they don’t have something that gets them up in the morning. I also think it’s because the stupid motherfuckers don’t want to or can’t understand what makes an artist tick… and that bothers them.
