REVISED : June 1st 2010.


STOP MAD AND THROWING SERIOUS / CYNICAL / FATAL JUDGMENTS to me. I JUST MADE IT FOR FUN. WHY CAN'T YOU TAKE THIS AS A JOKE INSTEAD OF MISJUDGING MY PERSPECTIVE? IT WAS YEARS AGO, PUHLEASEE! PEOPLE CHANGE!! AS IF I REALLY STICK WITH THIS PERSPECTIVE FOREVER. OH MAN, PLEASE JUST BE COOL.


PLEASE READ THE WHOLE ARTIST'S COMMENT BEFORE YOU GIVE ME STUPID COMMENTS!


----------------------------------------------------------


dedicated to everyone in this world, who feels the same way with me now.
whose in the confusing scene of life
when you lost in choices
what will you choose, people's prestige or your real determination?
who feels that the world doesn't stand a chance for mine
who stuck in lines
and bias about which way to go from now?
... and especially when the world asks, do you know which direction you will go for your future life?
while you just doing your hobbies and never figured it out yet
but the pressures never give up to asking
"...is this what you called a life for?..."



cheers,
the super artworker wannabe,
eugenia clara.

COMMENT REVISED : September 1st, 2009



ohmydawg a DD! :woohoo:
thank you very much for all the comments and all the faves and the watches :heart: .
And I appreciated all the critics and corrections.
I'm so sorry for much Grammatical Errors, Idealistic Point of Views, and etc.
But before further judgments, you should know what was behind this work.


A Story behind this piece

I made "Go to School" when I was just started my last year on high school, which it was the hardest terms. Everyday filled with extra-after classes of this and that and the fears of Final Exam - The National Exam (which all your future of 3 years full of studying is depend on this 5 days exam)

Every senior on high school had to focus on what study program/ major/ faculty/ etc they would applied their application form to Universities they like to.

My school regularly held a little questioner to find out what was the most favorite Study Program or the most wanted Majors.
And the results are (plus the reasons) :
1) Medical = because it made you rich and get prestigious degree!
2) Engineering = look smarts and important, and also, to be rich and have prestigious degree. MEH!
3) Law = Lawyer's and its all prestigious job + degree.


Well, that made a point to think of :
were the prestigious job or majors are just Doctor and Engineer and Lawyer?

I said this because there's a local unwritten law and local norm/ custom In my local circumstances said that if you're a Doctor or a Lawyer or an Engineer or a Person that works for Government a.k.a Civil Servants, you are so great. That's the REAL JOB. That's the whole point you go to college and get yourself a REAL JOB for a REAL WEALTH and MONEY. Because when you're older, the Prestige get you on the top.

"What about art?"
They said, "Art is just for hobbies. Art won't lead you anywhere. Art's not bring you for future wealth. Life's all about wealthy. To be wealth, we need : Prestige, and of course, Money.


those opinions are unfair. You can't judge things by its commercial's succeed. Everyone has opinion. Everyone has different mindset to stick on. There's no good or bad things, that's just depend on everyone's perspective.




____________________


so, that's the reason I made this piece. I was put my emotion there, but now I already get rid of those things NOW. I just want to delivered a message of "stigma" that goes strong around me.
Come to think of it, there's always a pro and con for every single opinion.
I know the illustration is not good, yeah that's subjective!
PLEASE NOTE : I'm not bashing Doctor, Lawyer, Civil servant and Engineer AS BAD THINGS I just "bring" things up, wanted to show and compare local people thoughts. SO WHY CAN'T YOU SEE?
I JUST BRING THE LOCAL STEREOTYPE INTO A PIECE OF ARTWORK!


SO DON'T BLAME ME ABOUT THIS PERSPECTIVE. BLAME THE CONVENTIONAL GUYS! SHIT!



Eugenia Clara.

Engineers make people's lives easier. I love to draw, but when I look back on my life, I would rather say "I helped my community become stronger, cleaner, healthier, and more efficient" than "I made some of the paintings in this art exhibit".

^I agree with this.

Some thoughts:

The most objectively important job in society overall, I think, is medical researcher. Followed by doctor. It's not because they pay so well (investment banking probably pays much better, as does running a successful nightclub in a big city, etc.), but because they are actually important for people's lives and health.

Yet society holds, say, movie stars in much higher regard. Does that seem fair?

And what does it say about the society, and the degree of happiness in our lives, that we are so hungry for entertainment - a release, a way to vent, - that entertainers rule the minds of millions?

Also, these realities clash with some (SOME, not all) aspects of the description of the present art piece - that artists are supposedly looked down on compared against people of other professions. Show business is all the rage, in our time more than ever before. Musicians and movie people are revered. Doctors and scientists aren't...

However, I agree with the artist (~eugeniaclara) on many things, such as:
- many office jobs aren't of much use to society, and what's more, they dumb the person doing them down;
- money should only be the means - never the end goal.

I even have things to add to defend the artists' importance to society:
- art is a powerful tool for getting ideas across to people. Its significance in this regard should not be underestimated.

Sorry for the lengthy post...

I actually love this because I think there is this mold set up by society that says that this path of life is the ultimate path to happiness, and that this is the only way to have a fulfilling life. I honestly hope I never end up behind an office desk. Maybe it works for others, but not for me.
Great job with this!!

People, please.

That artwork mas made when I was young and emotionally unstable because I was facing a big problem back then, I admit. It was the f*cking 4 years ago!
The words are cheesy, whiny bullcrap. It even using a free vector stock for the Man figure,
and also has MANY GRAMMAR ERRORS. It's ugly, I know.
But hey, it was an honest mistake.


So, people who throwing unnecessary / rude / unpleasant / bla bla bla comment: Go find another positive activity beside mad at 'A' piece of random old work.
