There's a ton of other great artists scheduled to appear, so check it out, all the info you need is here: staple-austin.org/

See ya there!

Of course, as always. I just read your journal about art education as well, thanks so much for posting that. I had a similar experience in high school that made me give up art for about 5 years, and I feel like I'm constantly making up for lost time. I ended up going to UNT for music (instead of art as I originally wanted) which might have been the better choice, from the sound of it.

I completely agree with you about talent being a mostly useless word. When people tell me I'm 'talented' at music, I just chuckle and say that the only reason I'm good is because I practiced for 6 hours a day for 4 years straight. Art and music are learnable skills. Now I'm trying to put the time and energy into re-learning drawing technique. Anyway, thanks for telling your story, it was very encouraging!
