"Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering. A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the cartoon you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life. Discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever."

- Kevin Smith

I keep this quote on my Facebook banner for all that pass by, are artists, or know an artist, so I will put it here too.

It's a road, with many destinations :)
