So Today I became curious enough and opened the door to my son's room.  He's been in there for a week, lol.  Only coming out to eat and shower.  Final term is wrapping up at university and it's crunch time.  He's taking Graphic Arts Design but really doesn't seem too happy doing the 'art' part of it.

I don't get it.

I thought Art and Design went 'hand-in-hand'?

He is doing this huge poster-size art work on his wall and is now adding in all the details. This requires A LOT of shading and he doesn't seem too content on doing it.

"Too time consuming," he says.
"I don't want to be an aritist, I want to be a Graphic Designer."

"What's the difference?" I asked, but he was too frustrated for the moment, to answer me.  I will try again later.

All I managed to get out of him in regards to this assignment is that it had to involve a few of the people in his class... including himself.  Why there is a spatula and pipe involved is anyone's guess.

"What's up with the clouds... and that 'nipple' down below?" I wondered out loud.  Oooh... he was getting mad.

"That's not a nipple!  It's an eye!" he yelled.

Oooookaaaay then.  I quietly vacated his room and shut the door behind me.  I'll check back in a few days...

I still don't get it!


  1. It's just such a funny thing how one person can love to do what some see as tedious torture...lol...I sometimes enjoy the tedious stuff of the art world/doodle world but could never consider it a daily part of my life, I'd go mad...lol. Cute little story...and good luck to your son and his graphic designing future!

    1. Omg! Thank-you so much for your comment and perspective! He is considering going to college next year he said, where they have a more 'hands on' approach. Too much theory and not enough practice at the university. He's so good at what he does, however he doesn't like to be rushed and he is on a tight schedule here to get this project done, lol. I told him, "Welcome to the real world". Thanks again!
