Once you proclaim yourself an artist, you are an artist eternally. It doesn't matter if life pulls you in a different direction for a week, a month or a year. You are still an artist. It doesn't matter if health makes it too difficult to see with clear vision, think with a creative mind or execute with a steady hand. You are still an artist. It doesn't matter if you went to a fancy school or no school at all. You are still an artist. Whether you have hoards of followers, a couple of dedicated admirers or if absolutely nobody gets you. You are still an artist. I proclaimed myself an artist at age five and I'm sticking to my story.
p.s. Sometimes I go by the name Horrogami...because why not?
