the background is so detailed! I think i´m supposed to look at the light bulb... which is also incredibly done ofcourse but I like the shadow and detail on the background. I don´t know if it´s supposed to be sad but this drawing looks really sad to me
It is a sad work, of course the light bulb is a symbol for discarded life, it held energy and lighted our path, now its in a heap and ready to ignore, like our grandparents. Now do I expect others to see this? not really but it does set a mood
mmmm.... What do you mean, art didn't happen to you? You spent 50 years on art; you live for it, you teach it? That does count for something, right? I mean, you're not an icon in the artworld because you're mr. Happy. . (I'm not trying to be cynical, I just want to know)
Mike ive been chasing that great work for all my life and have never come close, dont get me wrong im proud of the things ive done and hope to do more but that great work seems farther away every year.
Is it something like the ultimate drawing? Or are you just not impressed with your own works, though knowing you achieved a lot of things? Sounds like you're accustomed to your own work. I mean: we all like what we don't have, but that does not mean your work isn't art . What is not art for you can be art for someone else and the other way around .
i think a lot of people consider art as something painted or drawn well its much more than that and very rare, when i look at the body of my work i dont see anything that comes close to that but if i thought i couldn't ever do it i would quit so i think its possible but something has to happen that's much better than what i have been doing.
Hey! That's not fair! You just took a picture of a broken lightbulb and posted it in the "drawing" section! Seriously, this is absolutely incredible, you got everything down to the reflections perfectly. Incredible job.
this could have an interesting interpretation for estonian people
recently old fashioned hotwire light bulbs were banned here, and only low consumption new technology light bulbs are allowed (it's not too strict though, stores can sell their leftovers and people can use old bulbs, but it isn't allowed to import more old type bulbs.) this image fits the subject quite nicely
