So my whole life ive been drawn to art. Im not gonna give you my whole life story and history in art as its not necessary. However ive reached a point where i am tired of feeling starved of artistic experiences. I want to get weird, i sort of want to live art. Not just do it. I enjoy being an eccentric. I lost the majority of my friends recently (see older thread) so now i feel as though would be an appropriate time for change as there have been plenty of uncontrollable ones happening around me. I thought maybe if i make my own drastic changes i will feel much more at ease about the changes i cannot control.
I guess the point of this thread is that im seeking to see if anyone here has truly sunk themselves deep within art as i am hoping to do? I want to live it. Not for fame, money, or recognition, but for comfort and happiness.

I was really heavy on the digital/graphic stuff for a few years, got a lot of nice high profile industry work and then mental health set me back. Was already some sort of creative parody of myself.

But since recovering from my episode, I’ve spent the last 6 months living and breathing art. I carry sketchbooks everywhere, a lot of my socialising for a while was spraypainting with friends, i make my own clothes, I do grandiose realistic paintings/drawings, have been chasing every style of anime, tattoo, graffiti, expressive work I’m interested in. Il do shit like get hammered till 7am making t shirts or painting just for fun now. Drawn to the point I have callouses, spraypainted till I have blisters and it’s rare for me to have paint stain free clothing on.

I’m not looking to be some eccentric, but I have been pretty damn lifestyle/lifer for it. Not had a job. My room is covered in print outs and ripped magazine/book images from people I admire. I’ve reached a point where I have no true interest in success, as I already experienced the hollow highs of being known for work you didn’t truly love.

You might as well mate, I’ve never felt more satisfied or filled with purpose in my entire life.

i haven't truly gone full autist with my art, mostly out of laziness and insecurity. i still work on it pretty much daily but it's just for money with little passion
this shit can easily break you or make you. good luck!

As somebody who once loved art and even went out of my way to move to a different country just to find a decent teacher I say if you want to do It for the joy of it do it. I lost my love of art due to a lot of different circumstances and as much as I regret quitting any artistic pursuit I can`t do it anymore, I won`t get into it but the love of art and creation is something noble and pure and you should pursue it if you crave it in your life.

Even if you have to work a job to support yourself while you do it on the side,just to do it for the joy of it without thinking about money or results or what not.

Life is too short and too dull OP so make it count.

Living rent free at home. Funded lifestyle via an inheritance. Won’t lie, family got monies and I’ve capitalised on it. Basically just getting away with it while I could.

Getting a part time job now, pursuing freelance work too.
