You know you're an artist if...
1. You feel like you're surrounded by zombies.
2. Offending people is like eating flax. You don't like it, but you add fruit to make it more palatable.
3. Nobody ever believes you.
4. You never answer the same question the same way twice.
5. You answer every question the same way.
6. You make your loved ones call you different names to coincide with the clothes you're wearing that day.
7. People think you're insane, yet you accomplish more in 1 day than most people accomplish in 10 years.
8. When people criticize your art, you don't even know what they're talking about and your face will surely show it.
9. You wear costumes in public and engage in eccentric behavior in order to scare people away.
10. You love so hard that it hurts.
11. Everyone thinks they've got you pegged, but they're really only interacting with 8-year-ago-you. They won't interact with current you until next fall.
