I feel that graphic design is suited to people with a logical mind and a graphic artist is is suited to people with a more abstract view

If you can't talk about your skills without talk depressively about others, it's because your skills don't make difference by themselves.

Yes! I'm terrible at drawing! haha. I'm decent at painting and pretty good at graphic design, but drawing, no. And people always assume that since I'm an art major I can draw! XD

I'm a graphic designer student and i love to draw but sadly I'm the only one in my class who even can draw. Something that I also noticed that it is one of the most popular study to do in my artschool and that's because I think most of the people that want to do something creative can't think of anything else to do and that results in 100 graphic designers getting there diploma every year.
Now I think about it I'm quiet sick of it...everyone can be a graphic designer even without an art diploma and most of them are so full of themselve. Think I'm going to study animation next year.


Btw I have 4 teachers for graphic design, and none of them like the fact that I can draw and even push me to not use my drawing skills for projects and assignments
This poster is awesome!

Definitely think there is truth to this.

But unfortunately most artists or painters only make their money once they die.

Beg to differ. Unskilled designers that work low end jobs can't draw. Good designers can draw. To end on a positive note I like the typography.

You people's problems are with labels. I recently watched an interview with food network personality Alton Brown and one thing that really stuck with me was what he said about the label of 'chef'.

He said he didn't consider himself a chef. He considered himself a person who really likes cooking and teaching and that it wasn't his job to label himself. If other people liked his food and then considered him a chef than that was their opinion and they determined if it was true, not him.

Real artists shouldn't consider themselves artists; they should consider themselves people who like doing or creating something; others apply the label and judge weather it's art or not.

That doesn't discount the fact that getting a degree in painting won't pay your mortgage.

What designers are YOU looking at?

[link] Modern Dog can draw
[link] Charles S. Anderson can draw.
[link] The guys at Aesthetic Apparatus can draw.
[link] Ed Fella can draw.
[link] Stefan Bucher can draw.
Rudy Vanderlans, Banksy, Paul Rand, Micheal Bureit, House Industries, Edward Johnson, Lucian Bernard, Hans Rudi Erdt, Ludwig Hohlwein, Schulz-Neudamm, El Lissitzky, Josef Brockmann, Saul Bass, Henry Wolf, Herb Lubalin, George Lois, George Lois, Chermayeff & Geismar Associates, Stefan Sagmiester, Lester Beall, etc

Every single one of them can draw.
Every single good designer starts out with a sketch. Their studios have piles and piles of sketch books.
Typographers sketch their fonts before putting them on the computer, logo designers sketch ideas on paper before using the computer to illustrate them, poster designers sketch their designs and compositions, motion graphic designers draw storyboards, package designers draw dielines along with their designs, and so on.

Any graphic designer worth his/her grain of salt can draw and has started their career drawing, sketching, maybe painting, sculpting, photographing, etc.
