“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

"...you're *really* gonna draw 'em like that, huh?"
Thanks to all who have replied. I am overwhelmed and humbled by all of the support. It's all just laughable comedy to me, but it's nice to hear (read) that people were all laughing at almost everything I was cracking up at. Those who have left comments are tops in my book. I'd respond to each of you guys and gals individually, but that could (would?) take all day. Which I wouldn't mind, but if you thought that other fella's English and sentence structure was woeful, mine is doubly so. Instead, please accept this as my heartfelt "Thank You!" to all of you who have left comedic, eloquent, sensitive, etc. comments. I am now, as ever, very VERY grateful.
Oh, and for extra laughs, look at all the trouble one MR. TOM FEISTER went through:
JJ's Talented Art
Man, that's almost funnier than the now-infamous letter. Almost.
[*EDIT: Just for clarification - the images from link above is NOT "The JJ's" actual art. It's just a parody that Mr. Feister put together, as he was inspired by the letter of critique. I mean, it would almost be disappointing if his art (JJ's) were actually that rudimentary, wouldn't it?]
