Here’s To You

I often find that many underestimate the hard work and exhaustive time artists put into their work, and so to counter this I pledge this.
Here’s to you artists of all ages, sizes, and experiences.  Here’s to the blistered hands, the sore muscles, the headaches from all the fumes, the ringing in the ears from the power tools.  Here’s to the hours upon hours spent on a single line, which can be erased in a matter of seconds.  Here’s to being strong and constantly taking the criticisms of others, the worst of whom is often yourself.  Here’s to you standing out from the crowd, and taking that risk to create something exciting and new.  Here’s to the hundreds of failures it took to get to the one success.  Here’s to you.  All of these things are recognized and appreciated.  And so to all of you, Uncle Lumpy says keep at it.  Keep making art, it is all worth it.
