a distant shore by b33lz3bub a distant shore by b33lz3bub
i still can't be sure why you do the things you do, or say the things you say.

you people, you fleshy shits. if you actually spoke honestly, if you actually gave me a good, honest reason.

i felt it last night for a flash at 5am in the shower.


it just doesn't feel like it's enough anymore. the flavor isn't lost. the life has not left, and the color has most certainly not departed.

christ though.


what's the point?


why? a few, a thousand, maybe a few more, will see it. some will feel inspired, some might remember it.

i don't know. it doesn't keep me alive.



and thus the speeding of the film towards a change of pace is instigated. i can't remain here anymore.

acrylic, gouche, conti, ink, derwents, artliner and masking tape in a sketchbook.

This is most certainly epic! :o
When your life is a mistake, you get this feeling a lot. :(
Random thing's like this pop up in my head in the shower also...
Usually when I'm alone I wonder what It'd be like.

youve inspired me to test your drawing style- of course i cant master it, thats upto you, but every time i feel a big urge of EMOTION, i look to my sketchbook- my notebook- my WALL, anything- and your art comes to mind. i know the feeling in your art, and if i couldexplain it any better, id say that you dove into my mind and have taken out the images in the best pronounced way. your art is what i feel, and i hope you keep it up. houre one of my heroes and in such a broken life as mine those come rarely. thanks for being amazing and picking up that pencil in elementary school. some of my works have been dedicated to you- if you fall upon my gallery youd see-but im sure youve got better things to do. enjoy your life being incredible cause im jsut someones muse. :)

if i could blush anymore i would explode - i never feel worthy of such praise, but it means a fucking ton to know that someone actually gets that much from my work. so thank you for letting me know. it gets difficult at times, i have a hard time believing i can get anywhere with what i do, so it always helps so much to hear that there are those who get so much from it :hug:

i figured you were getting into one of those stages, we all do. being that i have just gotten out of one, i could tell you were getting into something. and dont worry ever about "how good" or "worthy" you are and how you do with your art because i thinik youre amazing and you should never second-guess yourself.

to be honest, i never thought you would come across my comment- i was sure you had something much more interesting in which to point your attention, but im glad you responded. i love your work and yes- it makes me want to go on being an artist most times. like i said, if you ever fell on my gallery, youd see that your style is some of the base ive gotten into in my own portfolio. im actually a jr. in high school and im getting my portfolio shot for the real deal. a lot of my works are based off of your style but my ideas. so i wanted yto thank you because you have influanced me completely in your works. i could not continue with praise and adoration of your work-youve acomplishes so much more than i dream to in a lifetime.

thank you endlessly. :heart:

What you do sends ripples out into the world, even if it's just on the level of subliminal impulses in the back of peoples minds. Like tipping invisible dominoes, thoughts affect person after person. Your work will not die until we all do.

All your stuff is very emotional and deeply disturbing in the best possible way. I will honestly say that I like all of your work because it is just completely awesome? I wish I could find a better word but for now that's all I got...

I know how you feel, I often get those same thoughts. Its hard to push them away, I try to not think who it will effect and paint for myself. I really do love your art and I hope that you never stop, because your amazing at conveying emotion. I get so much from your work.

The point, is that you are here. The point is that you exist. The point is that you have something that sets you apart from all the fleshy shits who lie and piss all over each other.
In a thousand years noone may remember your name. In 100 years there may be noone left who remembers your name. The flashy shits might have destroyed the world by then. What does it matter. You sat down and you created this. You made something real and honest for noone but yourself. And that is the point. You are the point.

fucking sick :P

so you're a nihilist now? no one knows the point of anything, except crazy religious people. but you know.. we're here and living, and we've evolved past the basic need to simply stay alive. i think creating art is the highest form of human achievement.. it transcends everything else, and really is what separates us from animals and robots. what about making a connection to other people? as you say.. people see it, draw inspiration from it, remember it. is that not enough of a point? if it affects one person (including you), is that not enough? what the fuck else are we here for?

i find it hard to belive that you don't get any value out of these things that you create. even if you don't realise it. don't stop.

i've been called that from time to time before. art most certainly is the most important thing. i just find it very hard to appreciate anything some days. i'm in an odd point in my life at the moment.always great to be slapped back into it though <3

You have an effective writing style. It made me sit up and listen. I wasn't in my usual browsing daze when I read that; it shook off the cobwebs and I took in every piece of punchy text. That doesn't happen often when I read "artist's comments", so I thought I'd mention it.
