What is your opinion about graphic arts and in what way is it seen in your country or family? Is it something important for you (even if you don't do it yourself, I mean : has it an impact on you life in any way?) ? Do you see it more like a hardwork or a relaxing hobby (or something else?)? Would you do it as a job?
My sister was a graphic artist. She did art for computer games. Very cool job. Graphic art enhances our lives - I encourage you to take up this profession.
Graphic art is a great form of creativity. However I've seen some graphic artists who fall into a rut and their designs look all the same year after year. They may argue it is their "style" but with the rapid changing tech in the graphic art industry their "style" starts to look very old very fast. A graphic artist needs to keep up with the changing industry and tech. I think the best graphic artists may not be the most artistic but can desgin things that are fresh and new.
I haven't ability about it. I don't see it as job or hobby. it must be lifestyle.
In my country, becoming an artist is very risky as economical. Therefore, parents or relatives don't encourage. Insomuch that sometimes they hinder.
I think an ordinary person will be forgotten. But artists never die.
And I finish my words with this sentence,
"All of you can be a parlementer or a minister. Even you can be a president. But you couldn't be an artist."
In my opinion, Art is the most essential part for all huminity. art makes you appreciate life and helps touch your soul.
I think art needs to be more appreciated from all the spectrums society. Unfortunately, where I'm from few people appreciate art.
