Hello Amman,

Well I'm a weird guy. But surelly even a weird guy is entitled to an opinion and to a comment. After all it is not the publishing of the book that counts but the amount that is bought. Even weird guys like me either buy or dont buy books.

Best wishes.

Hatchett

everyone is entitled to an opinion, however most people were taught by their parents that if they don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

And sadly, the motive behind the comments is all to obvious.

I'm a weird guy too. I come onto forums where the murder of women is discussed. i'm sure that's not considered normal to the conformist populace. anyway, you seem to be inferring that because a book doesnt sell well then it is irrelevant?

i feel that have a book published even if it sells one copy is an incredible achievement.

As someone who prides myself on my general uselessness and lack of ambition, I admire those who work hard and put forth their efforts to the public's critical eye. I wish I were able to attend the 2012 conference and see your work, Andrew, I am sure it is fantastic.

Hi All,

Baby Bird, this talk about parents, I dont really understand. If an artist wants to improve, which I presume that every artist wishes to do, then they should be prepared for some sort of critism. My opinion was not on any of Andrews books, but on the the three pics that he had displayed.

Neither was my comment negative.

I would have thought that any artist would have welcomed some sort of feedback.

I did not say that having published a book was irrelevent at all. But I would be interested to know how many of you have bought Andrews books before you got to know him. Surelly, that is the test.

I agree with you, Ally, that it takes great nerve to put out anything into the outside world. But if you do that then you must be prepared to accept both the praise and the critism. That is the name of the game in these things.

The worst thing for an artist, I would venture, is for someone who actually likes you to keep telling you how wonderful you are.

Best wishes All

telling someone creative who is so talented they have been asked to design book covers for authors and been asked to design the conference delegates pack that they lack creativity is not constructive criticism.

You are not even a photographer so what gives you the right to judge whether someone involved in visual arts lacks creativity or not.

You are immensely rude and arrogant. And motivated not by wanting Andrew to improve but by petty jealousy and envy. It makes me so angry.

*best wishes*

Jen
