Life and death art question :D
Posted on August 21, 2007
Last night I had to do some order in my lost lost lost pile of art sketches and courses from university. The “unimportant ones” as the important ones are very well classified .
Point is, I’ve come to a serious dilemma. What does someone do with sketches and papers only half drawn or disaster works , most of them done in highschool and university? I mean, I know they are just sketches or derailed works, but, some of them can be rescued, plus it’s my own mind and hand there.
On one hand it’s a lot of paper that takes A LOT of space and who knows who will ever take them into consideration (let’s hope I’ll turn out to be the new millennium genius and those horrible sketches will be regarded as pure gold) on the other hand, how can someone throw away these?
My question to you is: Is an art sketch equal to a simple paper where you make some notes and when you do the final work, they are to be thrown away?
What do you do with works like these?
Later edit: I’d have to admit they look sooo much better on-screen than in real life…. Now that might mean that either I underestimate them a little, or photography compliments art …. hmm, still have my dilemma …
