Look, look, look...
There are so many amazing artists out there! Take a look at these two pieces by Jim Houser. The top piece is called mmmiracles and the bottom image is of an installation called systemanderrors. I sometimes think "why should I make art when other people are so damn good at it?"...then I have to remind myself of a quote from the book Collage for the Soul: "If it is a choice to paint then don't choose it. Painting chooses you- it is an inexplicable need" (pg. 27). I think the same can be said for being a maker in general...it's not so much a choice as it is a need.
