In a world where mostly anything has at least a measurable monetary value and where even us, human beings are valuable or not depending on our skills when we seek for jobs, its difficult, to find any trace of kindness of someone doing something for nothing, and when I mean nothing, I mean actually no reward of any sort that can be tangible; money, objects, materials, or verbal appreciation for what you are doing.

Well, it makes sense right?, why would us do something for nothing, its quite worthless, actually, quite stupid...

I am quite happy to acknoledage that this is not my case, and I am sure many people will complain or argue about that, that Im wasting my energy, wasting my potential, wasting my time or my hole life with that attitude.

Art is a great example here to put on top of the table, because we artists, not always but most of the time, make art for the sake of it, because we love it, and do not expect any kind of retribution but you from enjoying what you are seeing. I dont charge any copyright if someone using my work for the same purpouse I make my art. I have done free commissions in the past for people that needed them, were sick, or just needed some kindness for their effort. But I get to live from art so I have to charge for my time and effort. I would be a hypocrite If I dont accept that as a fact. Still lets get to the point...

I strongly counter-argue your argument to this way of life.

Because then you have never experienced the satisfaction of making someone happy just for lending a hand.

and your image of the world being ruled by monetary values is completly wrong.

You wont always get the satisfaction you need for being helpfull or lending your time to aid someone; people wont thank you how they should, people would just walk away and wont care, people wont even notice what you are doing. yes, that happends, but when it doesnt, when its the other way around. When you get to feel the gratitude of your actions, you can feel a sparkle of happiness, love, and appreciation, and to me thats priceless.

A year ago I found myself in a situation wher I had to prove myself my morals, and I did.
I took the descition to adopt this beautifull abandoned kitten, who was living in a box next to a train railroad, hungry, sick and with their 2 sisters dead from starvation.

She barely made it, but she was strong, she recovered, and she found happiness here at home. She plays with toys, she purrs with joy, and sleeps cuddling next to me. There were no apreciation words, no material retribution. but you dont need those things to know you save someone, and that someone appreciates it.

Its been a year now since you are part of my family.

welcome home again, Sofia...

Hi Just thought I'd drop by and extend my gratitude. It was your art that spurred me to work with photoshop and later Indesign and now webdesign. I still do this ever since I saw your art some 8 years ago. I hope all is well and thanks for making amazing art spurring the imaginations of thousands if not millions.
