Art is breaking down someone’s reality.

We call painting, sculpting, carving, and other tasks that involve a skilled user creating something of intricate design art. These are actually trades. Skilled crafts which have been honed through practice and perhaps even some schooling.

Art is breaking down someone’s reality. Convincing them of something using imagery manufactured in different methods and materials. Tradesmen and tradeswomen are common, artists are rare.

The ultimate discovery of this was when I went to hire a graphic designer. There were plenty of people that could make graphics following my directions, performing the necessary actions, there were far fewer who could take a brief on a goal of mine, and ideate then create the perfect piece for it.

Finding an artist is a rare thing, if you do, remember them. You never know when you’ll need them.
