EJB: What you said about computers today parallels what people used to say
about photography. All you need is a camera and suddenly anyone can be an
"artist". All someone had to do was avail themselves of the new technology
and they could become an artist. We all know that's ridiculous. It takes a
great investment of time and energy to be reasonably good with Photoshop,
Illustrator, QuarkXpress, etc. Some of the local college professors whom I
have spoken with about Computer Art say that they get students with technical
applications knowhow, but very little artistic background. I'm seeing that
traditional art skills are still very much in demand, even as Computer Art is
developing into the huge field that it is today.
