Redbubble: Artists Weigh In On Art School

Redbubble recently posted a blog entry about art school, and asked their community of artists to weigh in on the subject of art school’s usefulness — or lack thereof.

I chimed in, and they picked up my two cents in a follow-up that featured quotes from a few responses.

"It will burden you with immense debt that is difficult to recover from, because art is not a lucrative career path in terms of wealth, save for a very tiny minority of famous artists." -Brandt Campbell

Anyone who knows me decently well knows I frown upon college as a huge scam outside the realm of math and science.

You can read my full response (and those from other artists) here.

Every night I come to bed and this cuddly lil bitch is waiting for me like this. Ridiculous.

This sweet little doll of a cat visits us all the time and gives kisses, but it’s hard to get a decent picture of her because she can’t stay still for even a split second.
I want to take her inside and give her all the love, but I don’t think Pepper would approve. This sweet little doll of a cat visits us all the time and gives kisses, but it’s hard to get a decent picture of her because she can’t stay still for even a split second.

Whenever I feel like complaining about it being in the 80s here in the summer, I look at Denver’s weather to remind myself that I no longer live in the 7th Circle of Hell.

It’s noon and still a balmy 66 degrees here. I’m just chilling out on my deck doing client work, hanging out with cats, and enjoying the sweet aroma of the¬†rhododendrons and Douglas firs that shade my deck.

It doesn’t get much better than this. I love you, Portland.

The Sun Also Rises | 2014 | Oregon Coast

Sunlight and atmosphere danced amidst the great trees on the Oregon coast, setting the forest ablaze with magic and enchantment.

Mists of Heaven | 2014 | Cape Lookout - Oregon - USA

I couldn’t be more pleased with the enchanting, fairytale atmosphere in this forest. Fog on the Oregon coast is truly magical, and when it mingles with sunlight it looks profoundly divine.

J.R.R Tolkien, looking at flowers. Apparently people hated to go for walks with him because he would stop and look at every tree for like 20 minutes.

This morning I hiked to my 14th waterfall since moving to Portland 3 weeks ago: Elowah Falls. This coming weekend we’re returning to the coast to explore Cape Kiwanda, Cape Meares, and Cape Lookout.

I still can’t get over finally living in the Pacific Northwest. Having immediate access to such lush, magical beauty has long been a dream of mine — a dream now achieved.

I feel so inspired to shoot and create art again.
