hey anons,do you think that ever since you started taking art seriously,it has affected your social life,if and how so

personally I've only really focusd on it for 2 years and while I absolutely love it I cant help but imagine about the grass on the other side.Maybe some of you have balanced both
>>
I had no social life in the first place.

If a hobby is consuming your entire life you might need to restructure.

Im a full time art student , with an internship , I do freelance work to pay my bills, and I still make time for personal work

and I still have a social life

git gud

It helps if you wake up really early and get shit done in the morning, I wake up at 5 or 6 everyday and work on art
>>
nope

I go out about as often as I did before art. I don't turn down plans because I'm concerned about "I gotta draw tonight!"
I do still turn down plans because I'm a lazy cunt and hate winter, but I did that before I started drawing.

>>2352660
Nailed it.
>>
>>2352633
Yes it did, I made more friends
>>
>>2352633
I bang a bunch of hotties cause I'm an artist. Also... When you get an art show there's nothing easier to get chicks that way. I took a few to the art show and had them tell me what they thought about my art. After they admired the art I would let them know I was the artist. Money in the bank son. Ez breezy.
>>
I work a full time job on weekdays and I'm in my studio in the evenings and on the weekends. Sometimes I have some friends over in the studio and we go out afterwards. But other than that my life is pretty much work - paint - sleep. I eat microwave food for dinner.

After art: miserable lonely cunt with a hobby.

post your work

Yeah it's been great, fucking hitting the gallery scene and banging graphic design plebs in the studio is a good fucking time. Bitches can't turn down the painter.

Git gud fags.

its not a hobby, man. its the only thing that gives my life the illusion of meaning.
>>
>>2352633
Balance is key.

I work my day job and grind my studies on the weekdays. On the weekends I go out and chill with friends or stay home and keep grinding if people are busy with other things during those days. I go out about a good 5-6 times a month. None of my friends are artists though. Ever since I got into art and tried to socialize with other artists I've realized how obnoxious some artists are, particularly the ones who are internet based and just draw fan-art and/or porn all day. None of them tend to have social lives off the internet.

Positively. I joined an artist co-op, and formed a group of painters who exhibit our work at group shows. I opened a studio at an arts facility where dozens of other artists works, so I've met painters, potters, sculptors, woodworkers, printmakers, glass artists... you get the idea. Plus gallery directors, museum staff, and other regional artists by exhibiting in juried shows and having friends already in those venues that I met in the arts scene.

I do live painting and collaborative painting at local (music) shows, and meet other people in the community through poster and mural commissions.
>>
>>2352660
Same.

/ic/ is the closest thing I have resembling a social life.
>>
>>2352684
its not a hobby faggot, some of us are actually trying to make a living off art at some point

Reminder that if you have no life outside of art your art will probably be shit.

this

I wish I was part of a more active art social life but I'm too poor to keep up with the yuppies, since art is a rich person's thing now

that or I'm just so bad that it'll forever be a hobby instead of a career

The time that you wake up has little relevance if you only stay up for 12hrs at a time.
You get to do more things if you can sleep for a lower percentage of your life.
Wake up as early as possible, sleep as late as possible,
Then watch as your schedule cycles in and out of regular society.
This is balance, and all the greats knew it.

Nigga I'm poor as fuck, I still draw.
You needa understand what yo life about.
>Woe is me, dem money-makers are freal, I is so woe
nah, ic. Dat ain't wut dis art about
>>
>>2352633
It's about to.

I had the option of either staying where I am and working 40hrs to make ends meet, or living rent free an hour outside of town and going full art. My friends already told me if I moved they wouldn't visit.

Which might end up being a positive since I won't have any distractions.

I took a year traveling, drank and made friends. Haven't done either for a long time now. Hoping for my next job to be somewhere interesting so I can resume a more normal life.
