I had only just watched the program mentioned before. and scrolled down to this thread. If i am going to start anywhere, this would be the place i supose, as it is all i really am. I have been told that my art is good... but i never believe it really.

I don't think There is anything really good there, but the creativity i have been told is there. {even now i still deny it}

Painting is just not to draw something on canvas, but it is more than that. You can express your feelings, anger, sadness through this. In medical terms it is a way to reduce stress, if you like painting.

May I say what a great thread. I've just finished watching Fry's documentary and came here to read more about it. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember and I agree that I wouldnt press the button either.
I enjoy my art, none of it may make sense but at the time that I draw im in a certain mood, I dont think about what im drawing I just sit and let my mind wander through all my troubles or joys, its very theraputic and certainly helps me when im stressed. I've noticed the less I draw the more likely I'll wind up in a depressive episode again, and I get like this I cant do anything let alone draw.

There's a few of what I have done. Still planning on experimenting and doing what I have recently felt inspired to do. A couple of these are pieces that feel right to have painted. The others were self development and practice as I have been painting well under a year. Just over six months so I do not have many.

I have a (very old) cartoon website (with very early work)because all I used to do was draw cartoons. The humour is not the norm: http://www.mrcartoonscartoons.piczo.com

Thank you and I would love more people to share.

Your artwork is great! Thanks for posting it. Here's my deviant art link: http://frecklechick.deviantart.com/gallery/

Thanks guys, have not been here for a while due to difficult circumstances but its cool to see such pleasantry, good intent and civility. I say this as here there is chaos.

I appreciate the new art, the fiendish yet raw direct drawings of Fugk that hold chaos, death and morbidity, the nature of the condition I guess. I feel like death (as in the spirit of death) is near me when I begin to fall low. The chaos in your work (like with my notions when my mind changes) becomes the paradigm of truth, because nothing in the universe is permanent except death/change/chaos ... bit deep I know.
Freckle chic, your paintings show and emphasize the inner life and experience of experiencing being human if you get me? The-what-it-is likeness to feel X or P within a moment. The focus of your art grasps my attention to empathise with your paintings and not critique your means of painting per sa; they provoke "feels".
Balangsen, a creative page you have there, clearly showing that you think outside of the box, which is fantastic and this is extremely valued by many philosophers regarding imagination and creativity such as Boden, Kant and Gaut. I can appreciate your pagan flavoured cognates in the form of elves and crystals which also are beautiful parts of our heritage. I liked the ear decorative piece you created too. Everyone, so much potential, so much talent, a pleasure to share and enjoy.
