If you're angry and you don't know it, clap your hands! CLAP! CLAP!
This hits home so much, even when I feel like giving up on doing art, it is what has pushed me through all the downs, and ups through life.
Bill Bixby, “Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.' Yeah, been there myself, angry drawing. Angry for the better part of my thirties, simmering there quietly. A former friend of mine was engaged and not many of us liked her, I went as far as doing a sketch of a likeness of her as a Godzilla sized bride coming down 5th Ave in NY. Groom annd bride didn’t like that lol. Angry at people for not buying my art, for not hiring me, etc etc. Nothing was ever given to me, so I’ve had to work twice as hard as some, while some have had it easy, and others just gave up. I’m not the same person I was, grown definitely and a lot less angry. Part of that has to do with meeting my wife, I definitely mellowed out.
