Remembering the Artist Robert De Niro, Sr.


I saw this yesterday on HBO and it was a fascinating documentary about the painter, his works, a tribute and how he thought about his own work and others. Robert De Niro Jr felt compelled to continue and try to show his fathers work because he felt it needed more eyes and to honor him at the same time.

It dealt with something important and a semi typical look into what an artist usually goes thru with their own works within his world. Often you will find an array of emotions and (personal) disappointments within an artist, it can be a thing of execution from the idea to whatever medium, self assurance or how well they’ve been accepted within the community of artists. We are an emotional bunch but it’s because some of us have an unapologetic and harsh opinion on our own works, that will never change and it’s something all artists have to cope with somehow. While maintaining sanity… well some of us do, there’s a thin line of acceptance when how good you think you are and listening to others praise your work collide. Most times I value what I think over anything that is said to me because I feel that if I’m not happy with it, I won’t show it and it’s not good enough for me to be proud of.

Now have those inner workings of constant self debate with how the world loves the next big or hot thing. It can work itself into your mind and wreck havoc if you’re not sure how to regain a level head. It doesn’t matter what your working on be it a painting, drawing, photography, project, music or performance, know that you are your biggest critic and it’s ok. Just remember to pat yourself in the back once in a while and recognize when you truly have something good going. You can’t grow as an artist if you cannot see beyond the mud.

Generations Built x Forgotten


Here we have 2 periods of photography, 3 if you count this iPhone I used to take the shot. All three added important innovations to photography in general. 35mm film cameras revolutionized what was portability with quality, Polaroid’s made it fun and gratified the instant want to see printed photos, iPhones combined all of it and it’s easily shared. What has been popular now is how we are easily swayed to move onto the next “hot” thing. Everybody wants to be retro tho.

See that image above? Cool huh? Yes I was just as excited as you to see this happening and thought “FINALLY!!!” but was then surprised that no price point was mentioned along with the DLC size.
I kept searching for it and nada, only bad thoughts come to me when that stuff isn’t revealed at first for some reason. Everything was however in place to make me WANT to buy it, Marvel universe and a few hidden folks here and there combined with the already plethora of figures we have… it was drool worthy. I kept questioning why the hidden price point and size of the update (it says 2.0 not Part 2) and started to worry. Then it happened, the price point was revealed and that it was a completely different (full priced) disc I had to buy, great. Why does this bother me this much?
I bought the game knowing there would be updates just because of the amount of characters Disney has but in no way shape or form of thought I imagined it would be an additional full price for each update. I have no problem paying for the update but when it entails buying something again at full price for a new addition that doesn’t fully change everything from the ground up, I am not a fan.
With this recent happening, it leads me to believe that whenever a new set and an update is released, I’ll have to shell out 60-75 dollars just to experience it. Do we buy a lot of Disney products? We sure do but not sure if for a game update be it minor or sort of major, I would be paying full price each time. Even if the update was just 20-30 alone and then you buy whatever figures you wanted first, it would be better than nearing the $100 mark for most families especially nowadays. There is still a chance that we will buy 2.0 but I’d rather it be a true Infinity 2 so at least there’s a major game changing formula in place with the new one to justify the full price.
Let’s see…
