So I love fanart. I think it's fun. I think it's a great way for someone to learn skills and build confidence in a relatively safe, amateur setting, but sometimes it's not sunshine and butterflies. Fanartists, because of the very visible yet niche nature of their work, are destined to encounter shitbags on the internet.

Inspiration Station: *fractekThe dividing line between fractal art and abstract art is itself a fractal, and may appropriately be visualised in Kirsty's brilliant painterly Landscape. Indeed, it's in this area that I find my particular favourites: geometrics such as movave wave and Feeling the Groove; primitive forms, sometimes with a hint of the calligraphic like primative and Script; and, of course, more of those fizzing horizontal divisions at different levels of 'zoom' - Mediterranean dreams, Frac stract andInspiration Station: *fractek2 years ago in Personal More Like This

But let my explain a little about all of this. First of all, I have a major essay to write for my language class that is due next "Friday", and I absoluty suck at writing essays. So I have conviced myself that writting about any type of random crap here would help get the ideas flowing in my brain. So that's what I'm doing.
Point one: Ideas, Twisted Ideas, & Even More Twisted Ideas.
This part of my life is reflecting on my many, fast-changing moods. One minute I could be at school talking to my friends all happy and smiles, then I randomly get pissed at just a stupid comment that one of my friends might make. (sorry Drew) A
