The deeply mistaken assumption that civilians often make about artists is that it is a chosen lifestyle. This deeply mistaken assumption is deeply mistaken.

I have never been able to go for long without shutting my door on the world, and being… away for a while. If I don’t get to sit and work on a drawing or a painting, I get itchy, cranky and resentful. In some respects, being a full-time art student is really spoiling me, because now I get cranky and resentful a lot faster.

A long weekend just ended, and I have spent most of it working on a web design project. Four days without any art time is BOTHERING ME.

Is there anyone nearby that I can safely stab?
