Many of us, have artistic aspirations within us. That urge to draw, to draw still life, or make cartoon strips or caricatures; make music; design buildings; make new embroideries, etc. And by the time you come to tune with this calling within, you think you’re late. There are other who have been practising this for long & that they have a lead over you. And that calling goes suppressed.
But art requires no calling. YOU CAN START TODAY! And in days, there are chances that you might outrun the ones practising for years. No offence to those who are practising for a while now. But the point is that art is more of heart that of skill. As you’d see ART comes from HE (ART)!
You’d see that history has also seen so many great artist who were not just artists but physicians, mathematicians, architects, etc; yet what was common, was ART!
Actually, if you look at it this way, they were all designing something & design, well requires a design! Everything that we see today, from a small nail, to a safety pin to the great sky scrapers, ALL have a design. Your design not necessarily has to be beautiful, but has to be functional (for a product), though there are designs for pure aesthetics too. But the ground point here is that you should not restrict yourself to do art, to design.
