What makes an artist?

By XanthusKidd, published on Feb 3, 2013

It's time to get philosophical.You know, all thoughtful and stuff.I've been wondering, am I an artist? Is art something one can express without an innate desire to call it art? I really have very little interest in conventional art. I find some paintings interesting, and I enjoy beauty in any form, but I have never appreciated any piece merely because it is art, or have I?

I immensely enjoy photography. I have since I was quite young. My dad taught me how to use film SLR systems sometime around the age of 10, maybe younger; I don't recall precisely. Since then, I have been obsessed with... (more)

By Digidave, published on Feb 24, 2009

How does where you live influence who/what you write about and how you go about doing it? New York City, for a writer or anyone who loves the arts is a fantastic place to live and work There are few cities in the world (I would imagine), that can claim to have more writers, artists and performers on this little 23-mile stretch of real estate, then there are in most countries. Manhattan Island is truly a Mecca for creative talent. Walk down any side street on a Saturday afternoon, on Broadway and your more then likely to run into a brand name performer strolling down the street. For me as a... (more)
