The Journey by Tetchist
The Journey
Just something that's been on my mind recently.

It's easy to look at really excellent work by really skilled artists and conclude that you'll never get to where they are - but that's nonsense. Every good piece of work, and every good artist, sits atop a mountain of shit that had to be climbed before the good work materialized.

And naturally, once you've gotten to the good work, it doesn't end there. Art is a journey that reaches up to the stars, with many little stops along the way, and never satisfies us with a final destination. It's a struggle against oneself and the external world. An artist is just someone who learns how to enjoy the struggle.
