I put a chain link fence in my back yard, but that doesn't make me a landscaper.

I installed a new side panel in my basement shower, but that doesn't make me a contractor.

I mow my lawn, but that doesn't make me a gardner.

Likewise, you may scribble at a drawing board or smudge up an easel, but that doesn't make you an artist in the context of this discussion.

You are willfully ignorant of the definitions of words. Again.

Put some of your "art" up and let's all see how it compares to those you criticize.

First off, I already have, you ignorant twat. Second, even if I couldn't draw a stick figure, that wouldn't change the fact that Darwyn Cooke is an unoriginal and derivative piece of shit.

1. Put it in this thread so people can compare your arrogant judgment with the quality of your own work.

2. "unoriginal and derivative piece of shit" is not criticism. It's insult.

If anyone can validly call themselves an artist, then the word can have no real meaning. What? Are standards only for everyone else?
