Another link on the whole idea of 'Care Bears are not art'
This is from the bio of Alex Ross (the highest paid Comic Book artist
"High school can be a chaotic time," he says. "Through my art and through
what these characters represented, I found a sense of order that I wanted to
apply to my life. Itís not that I wasnít interested in dating or
socializing. Itís just that part of me didnít want to let go of the colorful
characters Iíd loved for so long."
What if somebody had told Alex, Super Heroes are NOT art... don't waste your
my little quote comes from his Bio. on this link and the video link (though
not very good quality) shows Alex working on one of his artworks.
I guess this is a sensitive subject for me because though I have a love of
animation and comic books, I was told as a child that it was not 'serious'
art. I wonder what would be different now had I had an advocate for my areas
of art interest? Would I still just be watching cartoons and reading comics,
or would I be on the other side??
