the total absence of love.
the total absence of love.
Spooky. Hey, is that one of those Nivbed "Yar" rabbit things?
damn andrew not bad.
i love this one. its my favorite now.
thats really cool, it plays some nice tricks on the eye
nopt that is deifnately not a niv bed rabit thing, it is a personal symbol of female betrayel of the worst kind. this pice marks the end of a horriable chapter of my romantic life, I have learned a great deal about myself and the evil of women and I will never allow this to happen agian.
Women can be extremely evil and sneaky... thats too bad I feel for ya, we've all been there, I feel as though I'm glad things like that happen. You can learn alot about your self and others, sometimes it works out for the best.
I feel ya, Dr. Jones.
One falsehood spoils a thousand truths.

don't protect yourself to much, the world needs love.I will never allow this to happen agian
She becomes increasingly aloof. She pulls away from you, when you try to kiss her. She takes you for granted. You visit her, only to find used condoms in the trash can and you don't know how they got there. She breaks up with you, but leads you on, gives you false hope. Fast forward a year later, when you've found someone a million times better (and you will) and she's crawling back. You tell her. Sweet, sweet revenge. :evilbat:

been there, made me want to just withdraw from the human race. fuck. i hated it. sorry andrew. things get better with time...but I know it sucks at the present.
if it's any consolation, seeing your daily work has changed my attitude towards my own art...and, although it's been said many a time before, your stuff is a definite inspiration.
and they say smoking is bad.... ha! women! thats what will really kill you...
girls are bad for you.
They may be wicked, But fear not Android. One day THE one will come along. THE one that will bend over backwards for you, honestly, without a price, and believe in you, moreso than you can ever believe in yourself, and then the worst thing that could possibly happen is that you could take her for granted. And because she is who she is, she will forgive you, because it is unconditional. This woman is out there for you. Somewhere. This one wasn't meant to be. Oil and water don't mix, but oil and gasoline do and so does water and salt. Don't lose sight of hope.
There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.
I dont know if Ive told you guys lately but you all rock, thank you for all the support. Being an artist can be one of the lonliest jobs in the world, but you guys make me feel lke I am surrounded by friends. thank you.
my dedication to art and these self portraits are one of the factors that led to the destruction of my relationship. at first I almost regreted all the time I spent on them but I can take one look at the guest sp gallery and I know it was well worth the sacrifice.
Women can be fun, but they are not art. and I have learned alot from this experience-
Art never lies to you
Art never cheats on you.
Art never demands attention
Art gives back everything you put into it.
Art will always be there for you.
I love Art.
And now I have more time to spend with my true love.
I have faith that someday I will find the right woman.someone who shares my passion, someone I can trust. but I have wasted too much time searching, it can find me if it wants. until that day I will be here with my self and my Art.
sometimes i wonder the same thing. do i spend too much time doing this? it has not hindered a boyfriend/girlfriend type relationship but there are periods when i draw a lot more than hang out with some of my friends. this has caused me to lose that special bond with some of them. but a friend of mine told me that your art will ALWAYS be there for you. tis' true.
i have no doubt andrew that it will find you. i don't know what happened nor do i need to know but if it was some of that "cheating" stuff. my heart goes out to you. that sh$t ain't right any way you slice it. you're strong...now you may be stronger. but just like mcotie (happy b-day) said, don't let the bitterness last forever.
and also, just like you told me and many others...
tomorrow's a new day. and i hope it is.
i must admit though. i enjoy this spod in a totally different way now.
just browsing trough the latest batch of your selfportraits Andrew... This one I just had to reply to...
I really dig the painting, but it's your comment that I have the urge to respond to...
I know how you feel. Been there a few times myself. Being torn between the love for the art and the love for a woman. And the distress caused by loosing a woman you love.
How hollow it may sound, don't loose yourself to solitude. It's the pit of darkness. Nothing good comes from that place. Find your true love. It can't be rushed but true love will come to the patient one...
Until then, keep on painting. And inspire!
Andrew- I know exactly what you're talking about, I've been there before.
The thing is, I'm actually GLAD that the girl I loved cheated on me (with a good friend of mine, no less). If I would have stayed with her, I never would have met the girl I'm with now- who is far more beautiful, both physically and otherwise, not to mention fully supports my art and my gaming (and she even plays video games with me!).
The most important thing to remember is not to take it personally when someone betrays your trust- they are only hurting themselves. Last Christmas, I ran into the girl who screwed me over, and she told me she got married and within six months had divorced because she cheated on her husband.
I could only smile and secretly thank her for cheating on me so I could find someone with real integrity and a passion for life. Keep your mind and heart open, and don't pick at your scars for too long.
you made my eyes fill up with tears with this one. bastard. good job =)
Andrew: i hear you, I've never even been in a relationship. mostly because Im plenty happy doing what i do, but i do wonder if i could even survive one when i need so much time to do what i luv, i would hate to think i was making someone feel neglected while i spent hours at my drawing table/computer, artists can be madly drivin people.
