The problem is that Richie seems to have a hard on for reframing problems with the text as Artist V. Designer or Heart/Instinct V. Technique. Naturally, this has gotten turned into yet ANOTHER GigPosters debate with only two, rigid sides.
Try to get what I am saying here:
You can have heart and follow your gut AND make the elements work together (or at least have them work against each other in an interestign way) without being some pompous design snob. THATS what natural artists do all the time.
That must be it.
I just dont understand the DIY aesthetic either.
IN FACT. I was born the day I started posting here.
My entire history, my entire LIFE even is only 6 months old.
I havent done or created anything except for whats on this site here.
This is the sum of my entire being.
See, its easy for you to create a character in your head, pretend its me, and throw stones at it. Go right ahead.
You dont know anything about me except fro what youve gleaned from this narrow part of my life.
And since YOURE always here, and Im not, that makes it an even MORE narrow part of my life.
But you go on with your sumg sense of self-satisfaction pal. That and your contrarian schtick (which is getting kind of old) shoudl do ya just fine.
