A CARNIVAL FOR THE ARTS
Welcome to this edition of Speaking on Art. Thank you to our contributors.
As my BFA degree is in Communication Arts/Illustration, I am excited to see a fellow illustrator contributing to this issue. It is a competitive field but I think he is in the center of the action–New York City. I remember how excited I would get when I received a new assignment in class. I loved it. Oddly, though, I switched to fine art after school and am most happy here now. I like painting for myself. I’m not so sure illustration is my forte anyway; it takes great communicative skill to give a client exactly what they want. I wish Rom Jean much success.

Being Truly Present presents Life Lessons Learned with a Drawing Pencil; “The drawing on the left was so close to being crumpled and thrown in the garbage. I look at it now and can proudly see it for what it is and am grateful for what I learned. Let me explain.” [...]
Rom Jean presents XRS, Spoiled Dogs, Regalia Concepts; “…it’s a Fantasy/Romance/War story with a unique art style strongly influenced by Japanese feudal samurai print art. It’s still being written and the art is essentially in concept stages at this point but I’m really excited to work on it.” [...]
Lucy Chen presents The Shocking Truth about Contemporary Art; “If you do not see the emperor’s cloth, it is because he is naked. It is not because you are too stupid to see it. Same goes with art. If something you see is ugly, a mess, or just downright BS, it is because that is exactly what it is. It is not because you do not understand art. It is because it isn’t even art.” [...]
