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
what’s up, people of fire!
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…!
do you have your works posted anywhere online?
a long time ago I did, but it’s been so long I don’t remember the name of the site…
well - may be when u achieve a status of user-trusted-enough-to-post-images - u can share some of ur works (i will do too)
I have no pic loading capabilities on my computer…oh well…haha…
Welcome to the forum, Crazy2 and good to see you again, jukebox !
Hi. I draw too. Mostly portraits. But also other things like abstract and some fantasy.
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
Yeah. Is it Birmingham that has the Arts Beets And Eat festival every summer?
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.
I am a girl
I will post some as soon as
just so you know i am the non crazy person on here…everyone else is mad…joking…
got to go working on my spaceship…
I noticed how very highly functioning u were right away. I was all like - damn, I want to be like that guy - then I joined this forum to find out secret to ur unnerving sanity and I am totally lying to u right now
Whats up - and - Nice to meet u
i forgot to say welcome !
welcome, and last of all but not least welcome.
may the stars always shine for you,
may your path be a beautiful one,
back to repairing my spaceship.
