The scariest part of Me Before You is its realism (NOT!!!)

I might get my ass kicked on this one, but you can’t always go with grain. Wifey and I saw this at the dollar movie, maybe that was best so I did not seem like a trader crossing the protest line in our city. I have heard everything about this movie from it is pro-murder to it being a fetish film.

No one gave it the opportunity to be a love story, maybe I am just na├»ve and don’t see the horror plot in the film to kill anyone with a disability. Instead I saw a woman try to become friends with a guy that was pissed off at the world from becoming disabled. How that relationship grew into something more the longer they spent time together.

You to admit it was funny when he said I might go My Left Foot on this one, I’m sure 99% of people had no idea what that referenced. We all feel like that when we first meet new people. For example, when people keep saying what to me. I feel like pulling out my inner Jules from Pulp Fiction, Do you speak English…

I went into this movie with open mind, maybe that is the default as an Artist, to look at things as a work of art and see it as a tool to create conversations.

The Artist's Mind

What makes art look primitive: is it the skill of the Artist, or the medium? A lot of  work by Artist with Disabilities may look primitive, I think this has a lot to do with the mediums that are use and this makes the art look more crafty. There are some "masters" of art that have primitive looking piece, but  are just as valued as the rest of their collection.  Maybe this is art is it's purest form?

The more I look at Christy Brown’s work, think he may have been influenced by Cubism.  This is really apparent in the painting titled Symbols.  This self portrait of Brown reminds me a lot of a self portrait of Picasso in a stripped shirt.

To me this is more imminence than a a blank canvas. Although I have working digitally for about three years, I keep forgetting it is up to more to filter out. The options the do not work with as with any other medium.  Of course I my favorite settings and brushes, I learned real quick how important it is to saves them as exported files.  When you update software, it resets your presets and is not fun in the middle of projects.

As always the change of season brings out the art in me. Although I have been messing around with this digital stuff for a year now, I am still looking for the right "brushes" and "tools" for me, still trying to pickup the digital dialect. Is not bad working at home and not having to worry about Daisy eating something toxic. We put a nice arm chair by my desk, so she could sleep and crack her one eye open to check on me.
