it really pisses me off how people who are good at maths/science/history/etc are seen as the intelligent ones and will go far in life but also seen as the “boring” ones, but writers and artistic/creative people are seen as the interesting and talented ones but also unintelligent and doomed to be unsuccessful like shit bro how the fuck do any of us win

finally, after years of searching, the person with the worst life ever is found. formally, they are granted permission to be sad. but only them. only they have earned it. no sads for anyone else at all ever
WHAT IS SUPERFLAT?
today I was talking with my teacher on my way home and I told him about my portfolio review idea and he asked me “what’s superflat”
All of my works are all inspired by superflat artists and also from reading/watching anime when I was a kid… (Aya Takano and Takashi Murakami also Yoshitomo Nara) but I struggle to explain to others who aren’t very into…anime (because ilustrations from the West is different from the East)…
and I found this perfect website that explain what Superflat is.
TBH I started looking up to superflat around 2008 because you get a lot of artists that were influenced by anime (and I love Takashi’s use of flat colors and Takano’s way of using dreams in her paintings)…and the whole deep meaning is very interesting (and I recomment you buy or borrow takashi murakami at the palace of versailles…his stragety on where to put his characters next to paintings/rooms were very interesting)
Sometimes I struggle at school because when it comes to art colleges, they expect you to give more fine art/piece than half naked pastel goth girils with glitter…but what they don’t know that there are deep symbolism/meaning in all of superflat paintings.
