It's all about what you're passion is. If you truley love to do it then why should you feel guilty? Mixing guilt with something you love is like sprinkling red pepper on your favorite ice cream.

would this apply to all passions and loves?? or perhaps to just those that are socially acceptable. perhaps a little red pepper on our ice creams may stop us from becomming too fat.

Never tried red pepper on ice cream, but I tell you red pepper on hot chocolate is unbeatable; the most erotic beverage

This is a tough question for everyone but Mother Theresa, I imagine, and even she probably had doubts. Everyone has a passion for certain things, but feels that their work is not good enough. I believe it's the epidemic of the educated society. The rates of depression in the world have skyrocketed in the past 10-20 years, and many social psychologists believe it's because there is so much information out there people cannot possibly feel like they have a place or a purpose.

I guess there's not really a solution to feeling bad about what you do, because I think everyone does. The key is not to do something that's political, or socially driven if you don't want to, but simply learn to accept that all humans are by nature selfish (ok, this can be greatly debated, but I won't get into it here) and that you just have to know that what you're doing is for you and learn not to feel guilty about it. You do what you do because it's good for you. If you feel the need to help others then by all means do it, but know that doing so is benefitting you as well.

Just my thoughts on the whole thing...
The desire to express yourself with pen is undeniable and you must do something about it. - AL

The only difference is that snobby art collectors wouldnt buy your stuf.

This difference justifies that its not important what people think about digital art.

You shouldnt give a damn.. express yourself artistically .. be happy.. whats wrong with it being mainly for entertainment?
