What’s The Point Of That Picture?
The point of being an Artist
I shot this a few years ago. It is one of my favorite images. I call it the Ally Codex. It reminds me of a hunger and an insatiable thirst for more. Willing to do whatever to devour the world. There is something very interesting about it. As an artist, I believe we all come with a part of that. A hunger to be great. Is the cost too much too expensive? Do the benefits outweigh the cost of isolation and the many days of feeling defeated as if you will never see your dreams come to fruition.
Too many days being unsatisfied with good days peppered in? Is anyone even watching anyway?
How to deal with that is to not have expectations. Sadly, I don’t come made that way. If you create chances are you have been caught up with the same thoughts. My advice is to keep creating. Art has made me much more than I ever thought I would be. I am grateful to be me even if it doesn’t matter to anyone else.
