The other day eye found out eye 1 this ribbon from the Academy Of Realist Art as part of the Junction Arts Festival. It is printed inn full color, on a heavy cardstock, hand cut, n meticulously put together. I love handmade awards. It's nice to feel appreciated.
Eye will take this oppourtunity to say a few words:
Being an artist is both a blessing and a curse in that you can't help but put yourself through some sort of struggle to achieve something that gives you, and often those around you, joy. Happiness can also be such a rare and special thing that when you find it, you might as well rearrange the rest of your life around it, bask in it.
A shout out goes to:
