Intro: just saying 'hi'

#1

what’s up, people of fire!
After hovering for awhile I got jelly of people actually having conversations and created an account.
I am an artist - I was one prior to being diagnosed - after being diagnosed I just decided that I might as well get cozy with remaining one forever (without feeling that I have to evolve into something more respectable - like - graphics designer, for example) - HOWEVER! - if I do somehow miraculously get better or at least find ways to adopt to my present condition enough to lead a productive life - I will immediately evolve into something respectable - hopefully not as boring as plain old graphics designer.
Meanwhile, I am back to living with my mom - weak sauce - in Detroit. I paint whenever I manage to tear myself away from my compulsive and delusion/driven (she said, pretending to be sane) research of mind control (don’t mean to trigger anybody - but - boo!)
Again - just wanted to say ‘hello’ and announce my arrival. I really hoped to make it more of a dramatic arrival by posting my art - but new members are not allowed to post images. so - just use your imagination to imagine what a dramatic arrival it would have been otherwise - ta-dah!
Have a nice what’s left of the weekend

Hello ! This is my first day on here too and I also am an artist of sorts…just for fun…I tried my hand at being a professional artist but found I couldn’t come up with enough original work to make it worthwhile…anyways, glad to see you on the site…!

Welcome, crazy2 and jukebox

I’m pretty new myeslf maybe a month old here, but posted an image in a creativity thread just yesterday so you won’t have to wait too terribly long, and I will be looking forward to seeing your artwork. I have actually felt similar to what you describe, as i have come to terms with the permenance and debilitating nature of my disease(schizoaffective,but originally dx’d bipolar then borderline) over the years, i have begun to feel as if i should not continue attempting to fit in with normal productive society and instead put my energy into what I really feel most comfortable doing - art and that i may have a better chance of becoming a more productive member of society by going my own way as opposed to the one more commonly travelled.

Welcome crazy2 and jukebox! I used to dabble in artwork. But I’ve never taken classes, nor do I have a degree in art. I painted a mural of flowers on my parents foyer. I can do portraits from a picture, but I’ve never had anyone sit live for me.

I used to live in a suburb of Detroit–Birmingham, MI. It was a terrible place.

Well, anyway, hope you enjoy your time here. The people are very supportive.

Birmingham is like a cultural center comparing to where live - even more of suburban suburb

I would not know - I am new here. Are you from somewhere around?

It may be more of a cultural center, but the people I met there growing up were very snobbish, and very mean to me for not being rich.
