Hey guys, thanks for the welcome messages. I've got a question for you all: how many of you consider yourself to be "artists"?
Now, I know you can say that anyone who works with leather is an artist since it's an artistic craft. But by artist I mean do you think you have genuine inherent artistic ability? The reason I ask this is because when I first started working with leather recently I thought it was mostly all about technical skill. I quickly realized that's not the case - especially if you want to get into the details and not just make something functional. I'm really intimated by tasks that require artistic talent! Any thoughts? Tooling has me scared hahah
