Sorry to be emo, but I can't find the cables to my scanner so I can post my sketches and properly introduce myself. So I'm dwelling in misery and wondering if I'm flogging a dead horse. (That will make those cables appear!)
I always find the answers to this question unsatisfatory. I want to be fully persuaded either way and at total at peace with this.
I often feel that people are pressed to be kind, and say it's never too late the same they would say to a soldier who is obviously dying "You're gonna make it!"
I can see how art is not like sports or modelling, since it's a mental process.
But doesn't the mind age too? Won't the artist be entrenched by his early influences and be less able to keep up to date with the world, like young people do so easily?
Please reply honestly. Thank you.
