My life online has made me realize something.
Either I suck at making friends or what, but I don’t think i get along well with other artists. I have waaay to many bad experience friending a fellow artists on skype. I mean, there are exception (one so far), but mostly when I get into the conversation, it runs the gambit of either …
A - I talk way to much, to spontaneous or spastic, so the person gets annoyed.
B - I’m not into the same things as the person, we disagree more then normal, or I’m not drawing the thing they like as much or sumthin.
C - I get a skype name that simply takes up space, so, I see the name as a ticking time bomb if I drop so much as a hi to the person. I’m just as busy, being an artist, and understand when others are busy too, but I guess I’m to social for my own good.
All of these is why I will never go to a con with any intention of speaking to other artists like me. -A- In the end, I guess I simply do not understand not being social.
This is why I use to assume that all us artists have some social hierarchy or “way” we should present ourselves. But I also wonder if, busy means being anti-social? Then again. I guess I don’t understand at all, sense I never forced myself into business, despite having tons of work I should be doing.
Now I’m probably shouldn’t single other artists out, cause likely this is an overall internet thing, but its a weird pattern when 70% of my social experiences with other artists end badly, mostly on the internet.

- foxpaper said: I think it really depends on who your talking to because im a artist and im never really too busy to talk to people when im doing work most of the time i just talk and draw at the same time XD. but im not very popular at all so i guess i don’t count
