Everything man made has an artist behind it.
All things conceived by the mind
of man had been laid on paper of papyrus or dirt or
wood or stone in order to show the idea in 2dimensional(2D) form
then built in 3dimensional (3D)form making it a reality.
Nature of the Work [Per the United States Department of Labor]
Artists create art to communicate ideas, thoughts, or
feelings. They use a variety of methods—
painting, sculpting, or illustration—and an
assortment of materials, including oils,
watercolors, acrylics, pastels, pencils, pen and
ink, plaster, clay, and computers. Artists’ works
may be realistic, stylized, or abstract and
may depict objects, people, nature, or events.
Artists generally fall into one of four categories.
ART DIRECTORS: formulate design concepts and presentation approaches for visual
CRAFT ARTIST: create or reproduce
handmade objects for sale or exhibition.
FINE ARTIST: including painters,
sculptors, and illustrators, create original artwork,
using a variety of media and techniques.
MULTI-MEDIA artists and animators
create special effects, animation, or other visual
images on film, on video, or with digital computers or other
(Designers, including graphic designers, are discussed elsewhere in the Handbook.)
ART DIRECTORS: develop design concepts and review
material that is to appear in periodicals, newspapers,
and other printed or digital media.
They decide how best to present information
visually, so that it is eye catching,
appealing, and organized. Art directors
decide which photographs or artwork to
use and oversee the design, layout, and
production of material to be published. They may
direct workers engaged in artwork, design, layout, and copywriting.
CRAFT ARTIST: make a wide variety of objects, mostly
by hand, that are sold either in their own
studios, in retail outlets, or at arts-and-crafts shows.
Some craft artists display their
works in galleries and museums. Craft artists work
with many different materials, including ceramics, glass, textiles, wood, metal, and paper, to
create unique pieces of art, such as pottery,
stained glass, quilts, tapestries, lace, candles,
and clothing. Many craft artists also use
fine-art techniques—for example, painting, sketching, and printing—to add finishing touches to their art.
FAUX PAINTINGS FOR WALLS USEING VERIOUS TECHNIQUES
FINE ARTS ARTIST: typically display their work in museums,
commercial art galleries, corporate
collections, and private homes. Some of their artwork
may be commissioned (done on request from
clients), but most is sold by the artist or
through private art galleries or dealers.
The gallery and the artist predetermine how much each will
earn from the sale. Only the most successful
fine artists are able to support themselves solely through the sale of their works.
Most fine artists have at least one other job to
support their art careers. Some work in museums or art
galleries as fine-arts directors or as curators, planning and setting up art exhibits.
A few artists work as art critics for newspapers or
magazines or as consultants to foundations or
Other artists teach art classes or conduct workshops in schools or in their own studios.
Some artists also hold full-time or
part-time jobs unrelated to art and pursue fine art as a hobby or second career.
Usually, fine artists specialize in one to three art
forms, such as painting, illustrating, sketching,
sculpting, printmaking, and restoring.
Painters, illustrators, cartoonists, and sketch artists, digital art, working with two-
dimensional art forms, using shading, perspective, and color to produce realistic scenes or abstractions.
Illustrators usually create pictures for books,
magazines, and other publications and for commercial
products such as textiles, wrapping
paper, stationery, greeting cards, and calendars.
Increasingly, illustrators are working in digital
format, preparing work directly on a computer.
This has created new opportunities for illustrators to work with animators and in broadcast media.
Medical and scientific illustrators combine drawing
skills with knowledge of biology or other sciences.
Medical illustrators work digitally or traditionally to create images of human anatomy and
surgical procedures as well as 3-dimensional models and animations.
Scientific illustrators draw animal and plant life, atomic and molecular
structures, and geologic and planetary formations.
These illustrations are used in medical and scientific
publications and in audiovisual presentations for teaching purposes.
Illustrators also work for lawyers,law enforment, producing exhibits for court cases.
Cartoonists draw political, advertising, social, and
sports cartoons. Some cartoonists work with
others who create the idea or story and write captions.
Some cartoonists write captions themselves.
Most cartoonists have comic, critical,
or dramatic talents in addition to drawing skills.
Sketch artists create likenesses of subjects with pencil, charcoal, or pastels.
Sketches are used by law enforcement agencies to assist in identifying
suspects or victims by the news media
to depict courtroom scenes, homicide sceanes, and
by individual patrons for their own enjoyment.
Sculptors design three-dimensional artworks, either by
molding and joining materials such as clay,
glass, wire, plastic, fabric, or metal or by cutting
and carving forms from a block of plaster,
wood, or stone. Some sculptors combine
various materials to create mixed-media
installations. Some incorporate light,
sound, and motion into their works, recently even digital media here in the 21st century.

Printmakers create printed images from designs cut or
etched into wood, stone, or metal.
After creating the design, the artist inks the surface of
the woodblock, stone, or plate and uses a
printing press to roll the image onto paper or
fabric. Some make prints by pressing the inked surface
onto paper by hand or by graphically
encoding and processing data, using a computer.
The digitized images are then printed on paper with
the use of a computer printer.
Painting restorers preserve and restore damaged and
faded paintings. They apply solvents and
cleaning agents to clean the surfaces of the
paintings, they reconstruct or retouch damaged areas,
and they apply preservatives to protect the
paintings. Restoration is highly detailed work
and usually is reserved for experts in the field.
Since the late 20th century MULTI-MEDIA artists and
animators work primarily in
and video industries, advertising, and
computer systems design services.
They draw by hand and use DIGITAL ART computers to create the series of
pictures that form the animated images or special
effects seen in movies, television
programs, and computer games. Some draw storyboards
for television commercials, movies, and animated features.
Storyboards present television commercials in a series of scenes similar to a comic
strip and allow an advertising agency to evaluate commercials proposed by advertising
Storyboards also serve as guides to
placing actors and animation charters cameras on the television or motion
picture set and to other production details.
Many multi-media artists model objects in
three dimensions by computer and work with programmers to make those images move.
The Work Environment: Many artists work in fine art or
commercial art studios located in office
buildings, warehouses, or lofts.
Others work in private studios in their homes.
Some fine artists share studio space, where they also may exhibit their work.
Studio surroundings usually are well lighted and ventilated; however,
fine artists may be exposed to fumes from glue, paint, ink, and other
materials and to dust or other residue from filings,
splattered paint, or spilled cleaners and other
fluids. Artists who sit at drafting tables or who use computers for extended periods may
experience back pain, eyestrain, or fatigue.
Artists employed by publishing companies, advertising
agencies, and design firms generally work a standard workweek.
During busy periods, they may work overtime to meet deadlines.
Self-employed commissioned artists can set their own hours depending on the project and when the commissioner needs the project finished.
They may spend much time and effort selling their artwork to potential
customers or clients and building a reputation as they do in producing the art its self.
This places them in a whole category by them selves as they are independent business executives.
Artists are highly skilled disciplined producers of,
all that we see or hear in the world.
They are creators.
Even God is a creator.
