Sometimes I go through my art and open old PSD files and I find these extra hidden layers. They contain false starts, aborted sketches, and sometimes mindless little side doodles that have nothing to do with the final saved image.

Today I found this. I’m not sure what I meant by it.

What you’re gonna get is a lot of people who are so desperate for attention that they’ll do anything to get in front of an audience and show off. And that should yield a lot of “great art.” [Sarcasm.] Some of it will be. Because some of those people will, you know … it doesn’t mean that they aren’t great artists. But you know how it is. If you get people whose main motivation is a desperation to have the approval of thousands of people, then emphasis on art isn’t probably going to be top of the list.
