This work is simply brilliant!
Says the artist in me.
I'll have it framed twice!
So precious it be...

Says the artist in me,
But what if people hate it?
So precious it be!
I cannot let them take it!

And what if people hate it,
And what if they hate me?
I cannot let them take it
I'll lock it away you see!

And what if they hate me?
A simple lock will not suffice!
I'll lock it away you see.
In a land of frozen ice...

"And that, my dear Mrs. Sutherland, is why I shipped my art homework to Antarctica!"


Want to hear this whole thing read out? Check out the audio version: snd.sc/1eYCckP

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you this pantoum (with a modified ending) that was commissioned for the amazing - :iconticklyroach: - If you haven't seen his drawings, I'll ask again. WHY HAVEN'T YOU *3* Check it out now :3

And about this piece, it's a humourous little piece about what makes me (and other artists) most frustrated. That is to say, when we contend with our own insecurities about our work. x'D

Anyhow I hope you enjoyed this funny little piece and of course the audio recording (it has a little bit extra at the end).

If you too would like your own commission done, feel free to hire me. Details are in my journal ^^

:iconpointcommissionsask: - please :3

OMG! Straight through my heart ...man that's exactly how I feel. (...the end was funny anyway XD)
Is there a way to get rid of this problem? ...probably there is not a suitable solution for everyone but recognize the problem it might be a start.

So thanks for this little nice poem. :D

Hmmm, the way t' really get over it is to sort of learn to control yourself.

Surprisingly the key to gettin' over that feelin' that you're not good enough is actually to just ignore it. Even when you know you're not. Post the work first (or at least finish it) then come back a day later and re-read it, then refine it and repeat the process as many times as necessary (though I only go for one refining x'3)

I can relate, I have to be drunk/sleepy/nuts enough to say dumb shit like "#YOLO I'm fucking putting this drawing on my tumblr/deviantart #SwAAAAAaAg" 
I hate saying yolo and swag so yeah I have to hit the batshit craze to do it...

The poem is funny, but also very pretty, good job ;)

I can relate to this, but the best thing to do is just not let that stop you.  It's not about what others think, it's about expressing yourself and doing your best.  Nobody will hate you for your artwork, or if they do, their opinion means nothing.

Well of course that is the case, but you can't quite tell a man with anxiety to calm down yes xD

It is the same kind of thing for artists that suffer from this sort of feeling. It can be quite devastating indeed .3.

Usually they just have to work it out i their own way ;3
