Doing your own thing.

I was talking to Doug last night about how seldom I see really unique and original art these days. There's so much similar stuff out there - which I don't understand (what's the point of making art that looks like someone else's art?) Then we got talking about Dolan Geiman and how unique his work is. Recently he's been recognized for his talent by some big names like Fossil and he deserves it. I love seeing his newest work and the long panel below just blew me away yesterday when I saw it. He's a super talent - someone who just does his own thing and doesn't worry about everyone else - and that's what it's all about - do your own thing!

Love Dolan's work, especially his personalized pennants! I hear you on the original art...there's so much that's starting to look the same out there!

Thanks for all your comments - it's great to see lots of familiar faces here - and lots of new ones too. It was a lovely surprise to be on Blogs Of Note today. So happy to be able to introduce a whole new crowd to the creative and the curious collections at Cafe Cartolina.
Come again!

I agree with you so much it isn't even funny! I'm starting into my own film career, and have been trying to come up with some original ideas for short films. Someone has to buck the trends, no?
I really like the artwork you have showcased here, and will definitely look up Dolan Geiman and his fantastic work. I love learning about creative people I would have otherwise missed, so thank you for that.
I'm gonna go "do my own thing" now.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.

That is so tue. May be it has something to do with the fact that many only do theier art because they want to sell it?
