Ladies and gentlemen, looks like you all dropped the ball and let the 30th go by without a Cafe to show for it, so once again we arrive at Jim's Cafe - Dante Version and this time I'm trying out logos, so what do you think?

Anyway, the 31st is a fun day with many themes on offer, chief among them are "Inspire your heart with art day" and "Backwards day" so lets flip this around to a more appropriate angle (Right to left, Bottom to Top):

========================================================================

So, as you can guess, I like the "Backwards Day" thing, but I think this is enough to cover that topic, so anyone who can read this, todays questions will be about art and inspiration.

First off, let me define "Art", I dont just mean Stuff you find in a museum, Music, Cinema, Painting, Sculpture, Literature, Poetry, there are many types of art, and I will accept them all.

Fun Facts:
1) In the past Art has been part of the Olympics.
2) Artist Willard Wigan makes works of art so small that he has to use a microscope and once inhaled one of his pieces by accident.
3) Roman sculptors made statues with detachable heads so that they could swap out the head with whoever was popular at the time and save themselves from making a whole new statue.
4) Matisse’s painting "Le Bateau" was once hung upside down in New York's Meuseum of Modern Art for 46 days before anyone noticed.

Now Question time:

1) Is there any specific Art or Artist that you fund moving or inspiring in these troubling times?

2) Have you ever made any forays into Art? Audio clips or photos would be great, Stories would be OK, did you ever show it to anyone? What did they think?

3) When was the last time you felt inspired by something? What was it?

4) Be honest, have you managed to read all this so far or did you cheat and go to the forwards version?

5) Tell us something about yourself, no meaning needed, just whatever comes to mind.

Finally, for the Tags, I shall simply reuse the 24th January Tags :D

P.S.I intended to post this after midnight, but I'm posting it early because I cant take this headache anymore and I'm going to try sleeping it off.

Thanks for opening cafe, Dante.

1) Is there any specific Art or Artist that you fund moving or inspiring in these troubling times? I like listening to meditation songs. Cyperpunk meditation songs.

2) Have you ever made any forays into Art? Audio clips or photos would be great, Stories would be OK, did you ever show it to anyone? What did they think? I don't know what a foray is..

3) When was the last time you felt inspired by something? What was it? Yesterday. The people here inspire me with their strength and courage.

4) Be honest, have you managed to read all this so far or did you cheat and go to the forwards version? I cheated. Only time in my life I ever cheated at anything.

5) Tell us something about yourself, no meaning needed, just whatever comes to mind. I would have said that I like meditation music, but I already said that in question one. Umm...I've never been drunk in my life (this is true btw, not sarcasm like my answer for question 4)

A bit of everything really, nothing too specific.

2) Have you ever made any forays into Art? Audio clips or photos would be great, Stories would be OK, did you ever show it to anyone? What did they think?
Yeah, I have made artwork and posted some on here before. I guess people thought it was pretty good.

3) When was the last time you felt inspired by something? What was it?
I haven't felt inspired in a long time and wish I could get that back.

4) Be honest, have you managed to read all this so far or did you cheat and go to the forwards version?
I tried to read it backwards but now my head hurts, haha. My brain isn't working like it should anymore.

5) Tell us something about yourself, no meaning needed, just whatever comes to mind.
I love pugs.

thank you for opening the cafe and inviting me @Dante

i can't function straight there's now way i'm going to try backwards lol.

1. any art or artist : jimmy hendrix

2. forays into art : i couldn't draw a stick man properly but i do have a poetry thread. the poems aren't all that great but most come from my soul. and i appreciate every like and comment but i do it for me, sometimes it helps to bare my soul.

3. inspired by something : i saw a 65 buick wildcat full of petina surface rust at a car show. i think it was beautiful and knowing that almost all cars can be restored.

4. i cheated

5. i love antique cars and big block performance engines

and when it comes to art i think some cars and trucks are beautiful works of art. the best time for beautiful cars i think is late 50s to mid 60s. especially those huge useless fins lol. even some of todays cars are works of art. but everyone knows how i feel about cars lol

I was summoned. How do you type backward, though? Ok, I'll look up online.

Is there any specific Art or Artist that you fund moving or inspiring in these troubling times?

- I guess Alec Benjamin (a pop/ballad artist) and NF (a rap artist).

Have you ever made any forays into Art? Audio clips or photos would be great, Stories would be OK, did you ever show it to anyone? What did they think?

- I had learned how to draw for a couple of months in 2020 and 2019. Since I've never been an artist type before, my drawings are limited to sketches, with a handful of notes as I am learning. I've never received a single positive comment whenever they are shown to others. It has been months since the last time I draw. Work.

- On the other hand, I work in marketing, so I have to design a lot. Are designs arts? They are more valued than my drawings.

When was the last time you felt inspired by something? What was it?
- I was motivated to draw by various Youtube animators and the fact that Van Gogh started drawing pretty late in life (when he was 28 years old or something), so I still can learn how to draw if I want to. It was in 2019.

Be honest, have you managed to read all this so far or did you cheat and go to the forwards version?
- I clicked the Spoiler button, so cheated.

Tell us something about yourself, no meaning needed, just whatever comes to mind.

I thought of drawing as a hobby to battle my addictions and suicidal thoughts. Turned out, learning how to draw is quite hard, especially when you have no one to support, encourage and motivate, and people literally want you to give up just to focus on work. The sketchbooks and the tools are still around whenever I am able to get back on drawing again, maybe there will be a tablet when I can afford one.
