If it's self validation you're looking for then I have to question why bother posting at all?
if you don't do it for yourself, what is the point?

I only say this because you do good work & I admire your hit & run carving
but if this is solely ego driven, your only going to find disappointment.

You should asked yourself, why do you do it?
as it would be ashamed to waste obvious talent.

I am just giving you the straight truth.

WoW! Atomic tiki PUNK!

You through me off on that one, all my post are ego driven thats the nature of being human, It feels good to get Validation thats why I seek it, why else would i be on Tiki Central, I am a attention seeker,And when I do get validation its the catylist that pushes me to continue doing my best, I must sorround my self with people that incorage pat me on the back because in return i do the same, We as humans are not perfect and we have alot of flaws.
I have learn to allow people to be human, I posted that because I have been seing some real awesome work that he has been doing, I was considering posting it but I thought that might have been going off boundries,, I have learn that if i can not be uplifting then I need to just keep my negative view poits to my self,

Please do not misunderstand me you are right! its your veiw point and that is right for you, and I agree with you,
But my glass is always half full not half empty

Have a nice Day

When all you get is "Positive Reinforcement" you are most likely to become a praise junkie
this leads to a sense of entitlement, then to varying degrees of depression when a person does not receive
more praise, this is not a positive or healthy state.

It is not a healthy motivation as it only provides a false sense of accomplishment
which is only fleeting.

I totally get where Jeff is coming from on this one.

All art types want to hear positive feedback, I don't care what anybody says.
It's part of why we do it.

But here on TC it's a dicey game.
It helps to know the folks that give you feedback.
And the people who get the most hits or feedback WORK at it, hard.
They answer EVERY comment from every person, some give prizes to people who go to
their thread.
And they go to others threads and post on those threads, this gets those people
to hit you back so to speak.
DAM some of them even vacation together.
Not saying this is wrong just a few ways it's done.

I don't really work the social game that hard, if at all.

But you work hard at your art because you like doing it and to get some form of recognition
but time after time it's mostly the same people that end up in a certain book or
other publication and it kinda gets old.

I don't post for TC folks mostly as that is a clique you can never bust up, but OTHERS
outside of TC see my work via the net and come here to see it.
And heck once the friends of and cliques are dead and gone it's your art that will be judged.

You do great work Jeff and I have looked at it often but never posted and maybe should have,
but hey try being a light maker you get way more posts than I do.
The carvers for the most part are a tight group.

Sour grapes?
Sure it is kind of, but then it's always the people with fresh new grapes that wonder
why others are not ok with the crappy old grapes they did not want.

Good luck!
Keep carving.

Jeff has many bigger problems than feedback on an online forum right now. I honestly wish him well, and hope he gets his stuff taken care of.

Sorry to hear that.
This post is what I was talking about and led me to think it was the problem.

Wish you well Jeff.

Boy I sure did start some Drama LOL. listen Jeff is kicking ass! I stay close to him because he is one of my Heros, Their alot of more skilled carvers on Tiki Central then Jeff, But when i looked at their page thier first page they where already carving before they Got on tiki Central , Has anybody even seen Jeffs first tiki my grandma could of done a better job, but he did not give up. he kept carving and carving and carving and having fun with this thing and if you look through his post he has excelled to be one of the best carvers in Florida he has built a name for himself
Thats why he is my hero , I went to visit him from Orlando and he has Always welcomed me And he gives me tips on wood and carvings and tools and how to market. Its easy to look at the bad in people if thats what your looking for you will find it, So on jeffs behalf He has been doing some great work he has still been incouraging people , and making alot of people happy with his art, we all have bad days nobody is perfect,

thanks for letting me share, I just keep carving One Day at a time just like Jeff has set that example for me,

really Laz?

ok, I stopped posting here because there seemed to be a lack of interest in what I was doing and I'm not wasting my time or someone else's bandwidth if that is the case,.

has nothing to do with my fucking "ego", atomic tiki punk... you know, you seem to have an opinion on everything around here, but you don't know me or anything about me.. so why don't you keep your uninformed opinions about me or what I should be doing or thinking about to yourself. this is a carvers forum... do you carve? never seen any of your stuff...
