Once upon a time I thought it was to be a gallery artist but after a while being one I discovered that there is very little feeling of autonomy in it. My dream then became: anything that begins and ends with my vision. This doesn't exclude partnerships and collaborations, only that the success of the endeavour rests on my shoulders rather than relying on someone else. At the moment I suppose that I am doing my dream art job only there is always the desire for less admin and more painting. What's your dream art job @Stan Prokopenko ?

My answer is pretty much the same as yours. As long as I'm creating/building something that I'm excited about, I'm happy. Doesn't have to be a painting.. The freedom to work on anything is the dream. Im mostly there already, except the admin stuff takes up way more time than I'd like it to. Right now it's like 60% admin, 40% creative. Ideal would be 5% admin, 95% creative 😂

I have been lucky enough to work with many artists that I admire. If you could apprentice for one artist, living or dead, who would it be?

There are a lot of different career paths when it comes to the arts. What is your dream art job?
Stan Prokopenko

URGENT CRITIQUE - Can someone verify if this makes sense? I am not using a reference, and I know I am a bit blind to errors - subtle and obvious. This is a commission, so if someone can help as soon as possible that would be great. (( Also, this is supposed to be Kid Cudi, if you can also help with capturing the likeness that would be much appreciated )) ((( ***psssstttt @Stan Prokopenko )))

It looks like a strong lay in so far. Are you drawing him from memory?
