It’s All in Your Dirty Mind

     Back in the day, I was rather artistic — literature, art and music for the most part — but somewhere along the line, I realized that my form of Literature wasn’t for the masses.  The Art that I created could be sold or not based simply on how I named it.  My Music was destined to be devoured by greedy, leg-breaking asshats who’d make it unaffordable.  There was always a business angle to discourage me.

     A bit of cartooning proved to be humorous, but not socially acceptable.  Back in high school, my Art teacher looked upon those doodles with great disdain.  She’d often ban me from the class because she knew what I was going to draw before I’d finished the first few strokes.
     “I won’t have that filth in my classroom!” she’d scream.
     “It’s not filth, it’s…”
     “Get out, get out, GET OUT!”
     No amount of explaining could convince her otherwise.

     While it turned me away from Art for some time, it was all for the good.  Ingenuity became the outlet for my creativity, and I avoided the life of a starving artist.
     Besides, I still have the odd spurt of creativity that I can do something cool with.  *grin*

     So, Mrs. Cooper, this video’s for you.  😉

    I very very rarely comment on blog posts I stumple upon, but this was really really great! Your ability to draw, create, is simply amazing. I couldn’t draw anything if my life depended on it, LoL. But brilliant work, really, very much so- I found myself watching this over and over. You obviously have a wonderful God-given talent in you!

  9. Hannah Says:

    For someone that can draw so well, why take credit for someone else’s work? Why not really draw something yourself?

    Wasn’t mine, I didn’t take credit for it. Jeez. It’s a video off YouTube, people. There’s a Credit link right under it, for fucksakes.
