This is cute and we've all had moments like this. But really, as often as I've been accused of bitterness (happened just this morning on Artblog.net, in fact), anybody who relates to these cartoons more than a little needs to check himself. The only reason to make art is because you enjoy making it. External validation is nice but pinning your happiness on it is a disaster. It's capricious and could leave as unexpectedly as it enters. I've been rereading Marcus Aurelius's Meditations, and he noted as much, at length, two thousand years ago. And as fickle as the world is in general, the contemporary art world might as well be random.

If you're jazzed up about your own work you can congratulate other people on their success and mean it. If you can't, I think it's time to ask yourself what you're doing and why. I'm just saying.

I like the drawings a lot, btw.

Brilliant. Thanks for the link. I'm not an artist, but I don't know how many times I've nodded my head saying something bland like "Wow, that's great," to an artist I'd written off as a talentless social climber.
