Why Be An Artist?

My teacher Sterling Hundley wants us to write about why we want to be artists. Here are a few reasons I've come up with:

  • Art and design are things that I enjoy. Making a living from something I do for fun seems like an obvious choice.
  • A common office job would bore me. Being trapped in a cuble day after day typing spreadsheets sounds horrible.
  • My personal voice would hopefully be reflected in my output.
  • A body of work would be left behind as a record of my achievements.
  • I want a sense of accomplishment after finishing an assignment or project.
  • The constant growth and learning that comes with the field appeals to me.
  • Repetition gets old. Working as an artist would hopefully throw new challenges at me with each job.
  • I want my career to be flexible if I ever decide that I need a chenge.
  • As far as I can remember, I've had an interest in art and design.
  • I want to do creative things with my life.
