I am not necessarily a professional artist (except at code). I am collecting this stuff here for my own purposes. Yet, if I had my choice of career, I would study music composition so that I might expunge all these melodies that run around in my head like hypersonic fireflies. But, alas, life happen…
"Art is a jealous mistress, and if a man has a genius for painting, poetry, music, architecture or philosophy, he makes a bad husband and an ill provider." –Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have every goal to be a good husband and a healthy provider. Anything else after that is just more happiness.
It is my belief that art and logic run both ways: a good programmer is both analytic and creative... just as a good composer is both creative and analytic. I am half flaming artist and half Vulcan... which makes me neither.
