wtf? I mean seriously??? i worked hard to get to where i am, and these people who have been doing this for like a few months are on top of mine. i mean, damn, ive worked my tail end off getting here, and da says, "oh, well, we want to make sure others get exposure".
...i know its not a huge deal, but when i see things that maybe took like 20 minutes to make and are very generic above mine, it kinda gets to me. i feel that they took away something i used to brag about. that i actually have a piece thats at the top of a list.
but nooooooooooo, somebody who hasnt been doing it as long as me, is sad their art isnt being appreciated. i paid my dues. ive been rejected, had my artwork criticized, forgotten, passed over, and put down. ive cried over it. but, i kept working, so i COULD GET TO THE TOP of anything.... thanks, im glad that others are getting the recognition that i worked extremely hard for.
some of the pieces do deserve it though..but, several are very generic... very lucky imo. as, honestly, i could do what they did, but i pushed myself to do more. wow. i know you feel i have no right to bitch...but, it actually meant something to me. i mean yeah, ive been published. but i always could say, "i made it to the top of something". I never have wanted to be the top of much in my life, until my art. and i get ripped everyday, at least i had a popular piece to make it feel at least a little worth it...
thanks. thanks for saying we will now reward others who may have not spent a big part of years of their life to this.
