    I hope this doesn't sound narcissistic....

    Hey guys....I just wanted to know, I wonder if my career as a fine artist interferes with meeting or getting to know some of the hot hunks on this site.

    Please be candid!
    QUESTION - Do any of you feel an artist + athlete/jock is not a good mix or something you can connect with?

    I have approached some individuals and couldn't figure out the main reason why they were turned off. I can handle my looks are not for everyone and even my passion for art. But I never consider myself feminine - although I presume some might look at me and consider that trait.
    And I have no problems having feminine traits - I wouldn't appreciate life overall or have the ability to develop my art if I didn't see the beauty of the feminine world in general.

    To be honest when guys say "masculine only" - I am not sure what they mean anyway....
    I am not planning to change my profile - I just would like to know your thoughts about the subject.

    Thanks!

    I don't associate the visual arts (painter, sculpter, etc.) as being feminine.

    The historical figures I admire the most are Leonardo and Michelangelo - both ideal examples of Renaissance men. I also consider one of our founding fathers - Benjamin Franklin to be a great Renaissance man!

    I am not sure when exactly - but from my early years that is what I wanted to be more then anything.

    And thanks for the input Timberoo icon_smile.gif ...great photo of the butterfly btw...that must have been a special moment icon_smile.gif

    Agreed. I'd like to find an in-shape artistic type too -- painter, film maker, what have you. But it depends on the person, really. People can be engaging regardless of what they do.

    Love artsy types. Prefer them equally or more to jocks. Combination of the two would be amazing (and rare).

    I have had the honor and pleasure of meeting several "fine artists" like Peter Max, Ansel Adams and others of that ilk. Some were gay and others not. I was not struck by their gayness or lack thereof, but by the power and vitality of their personalities. Now that's something that turns me on, much more than the size of someone's bicep or jockstrap. Be proud of your talent; there are many of us who wish we were so blessed.

    Thank you olden - I am very proud and humbled by my experiences as an artist. It is an extension of my spiritual path as a Muslim.
    As I said before, I am not going to change my profile from the responses - I am just curious how others consider artists overall to date or develop a friendship.

    As an artist myself, I look specifically for other artist/jock types. It's all about chemistry for me.

    To be honest, I think more people would be prejudiced towards you for following the Quran more than being an artist. I, however, find that fascinating.

    Yes....I do fear that is an issue..it was going to be my next Forum topic....
    It took me 3 days to stop tearing up after the elections....most people don't get how hard it has been for so many Muslim - Americans. I can't imagine how difficult it is for African-Americans every day of their life but I had a slight taste of that prejudice the last 8 years.

    if you have questions...anyone...about my faith/spirituality Please ASK!
    btw - I truly believe my Spirituality makes me a better artist...the more I study, focus and pray - the more centered I am as an artist/painter/writer.

    Obama's election was earth shaking. The most amazing part is how many people have celebrated around the world. However, there are many challenges ahead and we still have lot's of work to do. We all need to be involved in this process for change.

    Honestly, here in the Northwest I hardly feel like race is an issue. I've lived in Maryland where I definitely felt it but not here. The people are so diverse here. Even white people are particularly alternative and diverse. I can't imagine how it would be to live in the South. I couldn't do it.

    I definitely feel you on the harmony that is felt when you join spirit with your craft (art) and purpose in life. It's like everything in life makes sense and your mission is laid out before you.

    Living for 26 years in Houston took a toll on me...this past 3 years have been so fruitful on many levels. I won't be going back ....hard to even visit sometimes. If it wasn't for my family I would never have an interest to go back. But the funniest thing is ...I had my first Art show in Houston nearly 2 years after I left the city LOL.
    And I knew that was how it would end up coming about. . . a lesson learned.

    Who are these idiots thinking that just because you're artistic, you're also effeminate?! How ridiculous!!!
    Anyway, i'm glad there are actually more of us artistic guys in here who just happened to be into fitness and health too (right?).
    Hey Beefy, there is nothing wrong with you, its them for trying to make you feel less of a man for being creative.
    I cant believe there are assholes out there who are fighting for equality and demand tolerance and yet spurn one of our own just because he's "different." Isnt this why we had the gay movement in the first place, to freely love and accept one another and appreciate our uniqueness?
    Ok, sorry, i'm building a whole new thread here...
    Beefy, you're fine....icon_wink.gif

    Piffle.

    If so, they can suck it.

    I'm a jock, whether I'm also a scientist, geek, and crafter/artist or not. So are you.

    DiverJock you are one smoking hot geek/scientist !! So i say kudos to all the Jock/Artist ,Geek/Jock, etc who have balanced there lives by being versatile in all aspects. Why not work out your muscles then go write a concerto or screen play or spend the day in the lab then go hit the court. Versatility is the spice of life and i think a hot hot hot quality ! Why take just beauty when you can have brains and beauty ( Diverjock illustrates this. I myself am a trained dancer and sure guys read that and think im fem which couldnt be further from the truth. At the end of day when the "Twirling " icon_razz.gif is done on stage nothing will stop me from taking a guy on the Bball court dropping a cool 20 pts on him and then will see if he thinks Artists cant be Jocks!
