Seven Things Asshole Artists Do

Despite this being a photo blog, I’ve decided to include all forms of art in this blog post.  As you read the post, I am definitely not talking about you, right?  Of course, you yourself aren’t an asshole.  You sure about that?  Here are seven things asshole artists do.

1.    Asshole artists obsess over equipment and always brag about their equipment.  Sounds like a guy always bragging about his dick, doesn’t it?  Asshole artists are no different than the dick braggers.  On and on, they talk about their latest gadget.  Yet, they always produce mediocre work.  Women might say the same thing about dudes who brag about their dicks;  they produce “mediocre work”.

2.    Asshole artists always have to tell people they’re an artist.  Until they see your work, most people don’t give a fuck about you being an artist.  Sure it may work on other pretentious assholes, but most people don’t give a fuck.  This is why when it comes to romance, I re-frame from talking about being a photographer, poet, filmmaker, etc.  I think the object of my desire may be more concerned about my personality versus knowing about my art.  If the art thing does impress her, that’s more points for me.  Yet, despite them appreciating my art, they were more concerned about my personality.  “Is he an asshole?” At least, the smart ones thought this way.

3.    Asshole artists always badmouth other artists.  Okay, all artists are guilty of this.  Don’t let any of them bullshit you.  All artists player-hate.

Yet, some assholes take jealousy to the extreme.  Back in the late 80s and most of the 90s, East Coast rappers constantly badmouthed West Coast rappers.  All of a sudden, folks began voicing about what is true hip-hop.  What was the real issue?   East Coast jealous of West Coast’s popularity.

4.    Asshole artists form cliques.  I guess the idea of hanging around other pretentious fuckers makes them feel comfortable.  Who knows? I’m not a psychologist.  Yet, I have witnessed cliques in artistic circles. Almost all the time, they are formed by assholes.

5.    Asshole artists believe being an artist justifies asshole behavior.   True enough, if one creates outstanding work, people will overlook nasty behavior.  I repeat, if one creates outstanding work.  Yet, if people aren’t aware of your artistic greatness, you will be seen as another typical asshole to avoid.  Even asshole behavior of talented artists works on people’s last damned nerves.

6.    Asshole artists always behave as if only a select few can learn their craft. Okay, there is some truth in this.  After taking dancing lessons, some folks may realize dancing isn’t for them.  Some may realize that with drawing lessons.  Yet, “select few” is bullshit.  Personally, I believe anyone can learn writing.  What makes one writer more outstanding than the other?  The outstanding writer probably was more dedicated.  They went out of their way to learn what techniques worked and what didn’t.  Plus they always wrote,  another way of saying they practiced their craft.

7.    Asshole artists are bigoted and/or sexist.  Some may say this belongs with number 6. Yet, I believe it deserves its own spotlight.  “Select few” may include people of all persuasions.  Yet, the bigoted bastard has problems with folks of a different race creating the same art as him.  No, this isn’t just aimed at white people, either.  People of color are just as guilty.

Also, the sexist asshole believe women aren’t their equal.  They believe women should stick to creating “girly things”.

Some may say asshole artists write blogs about asshole artists.   In all reality, from a small degree, most artists may suffer from the things I mentioned.   Yet, like I mentioned in number 3, true assholes take things to the extreme.
