A slap in the face is hard enough to take when you're young and got your whole life ahead of you (to be abused and rejected ad infinitum-- I mean to learn and grow from our mistakes). You shake your head, keep moving and laugh the shit off...
Besides, look what can happen when one is not only left to one's own devices, but actually encouraged! Wouldn't wish it on anyone, anywhere! I mean, sure you get to make a whole lotta money, fuck whoever and be the youngest artist ever to solo at the Whitney... A chilling indictment, is it not?
On the bright side- least I don't have to spend money on prints and mats I can't afford (though after all that editing work, think I'll ask Uncle AMEX for a pair of 16X20 inkjets as a small consolation prize for Christmas). Anyway, here's all six rejects I submitted, and judges be damned- I don't think they look half bad...
