I'm Not Famous

I'm Shocked no I'm Horrified that I'm not well known. Who Knew? 
Well I Did. 
So when I recieved an email today from an Australian Art Gallery that Specialises in Worldwide Niche works of art. I thought it would be a good fit them selling my stuff. Well apparently not. They should have stopped with we arent accepting submissions but no they didn't. 

Instead they sent me one long email about how they go about choosing artists and I quote 'Most of the artists in our stable have an established audience and reputation within the genre.' 
and another

'There are many factors that dictate what and who we show, and a rejection from us is no indication of the quality or integrity  of your work.  Unfortunately, we do not have the time to critique individual folios or work - so thanks for your understanding. We don't want to sound overtly negative, but we just thought we should let you know how we work, and at this point we are not able to help you with representation or exhibition.'

 This is the kind of crap I have to deal with daily but suddenly I'm 'Asking their Opinion' on my artwork which I didnt and wouldnt and also they are telling me I don't have the Notoriety to actually be called an artist. Screw Them. Do they know how many BRILLIANT artists are out there not given the credit they deserve?

I say take this and make yourself Stronger, next time THEY call dont give them the time of day, Work on your own Projects if you arent working like I am the Satisfaction of completing them will kill any negative feedback you are given!

Lord Fancy is on his Way!!

The Captain

So Yes I treated myself to Captain America: The First Avenger in 3D. And I gotta say out of DC and Marvel movies Marvel wins hands down for there love of Continuity and nods to other heroes. Now as you know I'm not the biggest fan of 'The Dark Knight' Mostly because it was so dark it alienated me from the movie I hate depressive films I get enough of that in my daily humdrum life. Captain America is Heap of Fun Escapism, It would have been nice to have a few more 'lighter' moments but the movie doesnt go over the top in either direction.

One of the things I disliked about the earlier Marvel Movies was their lack of reference within each universe to anything outside that particular 'Heroes' world. Thankfully once IronMan proved it could be done it seemed a given that they would continue to allow all the Franchises to emerge. From the Pitiful Fantastic Four movies to just Bad HULK movies I was worried that they may not come out of the Comic Book Curse. But they Have.

Back to Captain America and OMG the Comic refences are everywhere, Theres a particular character that showed up early in the film and only at a short glance that I had no idea was appearing but it buried me in this universe and it created a feeling that this movie was made with alot of love and care to the Lineage of Marvel. Something that DC Comics has yet to still Grasp sadly. I really enjoyed Chris Evans Performance I honestly had my doubts since he had played Johnny Storm and he left a bad impression on me (as well as the film) But he pulled it off anyway I promised myself there shall be no spoilers here I really want you to go see this movie if you have the time its a Great Ride, if somewhat Short only perhaps because I was left wanting more.
