What defines art? To us, when effort, craftsmanship, taste, skill, and “something to say” come together, the outcome is likely to be artistic. In our day and age, however, shock value alone seems to determine the value of an artistic expression. No, thank you. I’ll pass on that.
Therefore, instead of presenting you with a comparison between two self portraits, a good one and a poor one, I will stick with what I do indeed call artistic, and leave it at that.
Enjoy this delightful piece of self-reflection, with a good bit of humor baked in, and many details to discover.
