Stab In The Art

{May 7, 2010}   3-Year Old Picasso

What the hell!!?

I was watching the tv the other night, when the current affair show declares that they have found a girl that is able to make art, as good as Pablo Picasso, himself! Wow, she must be good. They told us that her parents have sold her works for up to $28,000 AUD. They then proceeded to show this 3 year old girl, pouring paint from the tubes on to canvases and sticking pom poms to it… -_-

I was Furious! In what way does that even relate to Picasso’s Life time of working, his education at the Academy of Arts in Madrid and creating a revolutionary art movement of cubism?!? Its an insult to Pablo and all artists, I think.

A lot of people think that the art of Picasso could have been done by a three year old, but, like Stienman in Bioshock, he spent many years following the crowd, learning how to draw before finding a way that projects his feelings best.




{March 22, 2010}   Shock out of Artists Block

I was talking to a  rather new friend of mine, who also is part of the art world. He told me that he hasn’t put pencil to paper to properly draw in 2 years!!!! TWO years, I couldn’t imagine it, that’d be horrible, so when I got home, I promptly got out my sketchbook and played with some biros. Didn’t turn out too good, but I feel better for doing it. 🙂

{March 16, 2010}   Artist’s Block of Dooob

For the last few months I’ve had terrible troubles just drawing. I’m not sure if its the lack of inspiration, ideas, or the pain/weakness in my hands lately. I’ve tried to get ideas, by all my usual methods… Looking in my scrapbooks, looking on the net, wet hair on the shower wall (weird, but effective) and I’ve written down every little idea in my book that I keep with me, and its mainly filled with shopping lists or craft ideas.

But where I’ve lacked in Art I’ve made up for in craft.

Apart from my massive pile of waiting craft projects, I have been working on a gradient/spectrum scarf which I’m half way through, a scarf for my Mum for Mother’s day, and had an awesome idea for a drawstring bag, which I really want to start ( although that’s how I came to having the massive pile of Craft Projects.) I’ll let y’all know when I’ve actually finished something. May be a while…
