So here's the rub. Again, i cant speak for others, but i find it kind of irritating when someone simply attributes what i create to simply being talented. dont get me wrong, it is flattering and it is a nice thing to say... but at the same time, i spent a great deal of my life and energy trying to GET good. Being a good artist (at least the kind of artist that i'm trying to be) requires lots of study and practice. I didn't fall out of my mom able to do what i can do today. Yes, a degree of talent is required to get anywhere in any given discipline, but simply saying someone is talented at something and not acknowledging their hard work can be a little insulting.
So there's my little rant o today. Take it as you will.
