Just Sayin by DigitalPhenom Just Sayin by DigitalPhenom
Emotion is a very powerful part of our business as artists.
I do not deny the fact that a little ego is good.
A little competition also keeps us motivated to try harder, to think deeper. But if you read this and get offended....chances are that I am talking about you. I try not to dwell on negativity..but I see this all the time reading others comments and it burns my ass to no end. All im saying is that you should never ever forget that we all started in this the same way. Having to learn. So I will leave you with a few select quotes that always run through my mind.

Ego, just a three-letter word and yet so interesting. If we did not have an ego, we would be lost. Feeding it too much we would also be lost. (Lida van Bers)

When a man is wrapped up in himself he makes a pretty small package. (John Ruskin)

I think I love you! JK! LOL! ;) Absolutely the best poster ever! Not just because you have the boldness to be so honest, but because it is a damn nice looking design too. BUT, I do love your boldness.

The color palette blew my mind, dude. I mean, the sentiment is great and I agree very strongly, but ffffnf the colors.

This is amazing.

Man, you know you hit the nail in the head with this one. It burns my ass too to see comments from artist in their Journal stating "look at me, I am on the top 10 most popular list again".. Idiots won't even comment back on comments, and when they do its a simple :thumbsup:..But I digress.. Its a loosing battle and I just don't watch them any more. Funny how a bat attitude from the artist can make a shot look like hell.. :nod:

I would love to put this in my journal, permanently, with your permission that is pard !!

Thank you very much for checking this out. You can absolutely put this in your journal...would be fine with me. I had actually wrote a note to a certain someone on here after reviewing some comments they made. I didnt send it...but it sure felt good to get it off my chest. So...I just made this instead..got the point across and didnt have to point any fingers, if you know what I mean. I had to take a few seconds break from the journal coding..I have the images down that I want but this coding is about to drive me nuts lol. I still should have it up today though.

Not sure how in the world you do it pard.
I Got my Journal code from Clara, and spent a week workin
on changin the colors and background, then a month later added the
header, after a thousand tries.. I am getting there, but when I spend
and entire weekend workin on the code for the journal, I am not a happy man
by sunday.. Still tryin to figure out where the rest of the font colors are hidden
at in the emotion box at the bottom of the journal.. I found half of them, but the rest are
hidden away somewhere.. :nod: I will find them.. :gun:

Sorry .. So long winded.. It's the Irish in me :nod:

Thanks for the permission, and I understand why you didn't send the note, I would have struggled with it too, but it wouldn't solve anything ya know. Some folks are just stuck on themselves.. :nod:

That's flipping cool! Not just the great DP design, but the message. I get so sad when I find an artist whose work I really like and afterwards discover their ego trip. What a waste of a good thing.

Nice. The darker-off white is a good choice, complements the other colors.

And as always, inspiring use of typography.
