207253, I agree with everything except visual art.

And that's almost ironic because I'm an art major. But I do believe that visual art is the only type of art that doesn't quite reach the masses in the same way that a film or an album might. You don't hear people refer to a painting the way they'd refer to a classic film or album or even a play.

I think some people in the visual art field simply give their craft too much credit. I think they could reach that level but they're not there right now. Some people will always see your interpretive drawings as "something a five-year-old can do" simply because they can't relate.
