    Well, as long as you don't do anything modern or post modern, like paint on strange things, or spattler paint everywhere and call it painting, or make a sculpture that doesn't look like anything real, or use strange things to paint with, or...

    Well now that's a bit broad....

    Paint on strange things? You mean aside from canvas and paper and the like? What if it's still a good picture? What's wrong with that?

    Make a sculpture that doesn't look like anything real? What, like an interpretation of an alien or something? I've seen some pretty cool imaginative scuplted works. What's wrong with that?

    Use strange things to paint with? Who cares what something is painted with, so long as the final outcome is cool? In fact, if the thing looks fantastic, and it turns out it was painted with something obscure like a chimp's toenail, that can make an already wicked painting be even more interesting. What's wrong with that?

    paint on strange things? i was a grafite artist for about three years, i was really into it to. i used to tag walls, trains, busses, sighns, and so forth. in fact on one of my more active highway streets they put up a sign saying graffiti is against the law. i used to put my stuff on the internet but can remember the site -_- and every once in a while id go to school or somewhere around town and id see my art with someone elses name on it. they didint even bother changing anything exept they couldent paint a straight line if their life depended on it.

    Yeah there's nothing wrong with doing something a bit alternative - in fact, that's usually where the best stuff comes from.

    What sucks though, is when someone does something like paints a vaguely straight red line on a black canvas, and says it represents the struggle of good in society to overcome its evils throughout history (with particular reference to the Middle Ages, and with implications for the future), and then sells it for a few million so some wanker can put it up in his fourth or fifth living room and wank on to his guests about how he's such a connoisseur.

    I have to admit i meddled in plagerism back in the day...evey other day back in elementry school i would come into class with a new DBZ pic i traced saying it was my own, i sold them for 50cents a pop.(they new it was DBZ they didint know i traced) but tracing is what helped me get to a decent level of drawing.

    I can't speak for Jakko. Afterall, I have no idea what is going on in that head, even though it is my head, and his thoughts are my thoughts, but I think he was being facetious. Obviously, blatantly, facetious.

    It's hard to believe the amount of money some people will pay for abstract expressionist art. For instance the splatter paint art of Jackson Pollock. I'd rather look at works by Rembrandt, Monet, Degas...or perhaps airbrush art from someone like Olivia De Berardinis.
