It has been at least a whole decade and frankly still having mixed feelings about this endeavor. I can handle it existing in a state that is just as humble as my previous projects. It is the idea that people will actually give it recognition that becomes a bit too public for my own personal comfort and then I end up getting more attention than I can handle. Of course with this same recognition comes expectations. I know all too well from what I experienced with previous successful projects of long ago how that vicious cycle runs. People of the modern civilized world simply don't respect an artist's creations the same way ancient people did. They are too quick to criticize the work or person or both. Artists create things to express a part of themselves and thus expose themselves emotionally naked to the public when they dare to put it on display. People today forget this subtle little important detail when they sometimes make a rather vulgar and public display of their unchecked negative emotional reaction to the artistic display itself. I am aware that the singular fundamental and functional purpose of art is to evoke an emotional response. But, it really is disrespectful to the artist as a creator and person, when these vulgar public displays become a little too public for their own good. Regardless of the reality these thoughts and observations present to me before making this decision, I intend to maintain my sense of honor as an aspiring creator and once again dare to create something I believe deserves a chance to exist.
I deserve a chance to express myself.
