When I was 17, my high school librarian gave me a poster. I don't know where she got it, and I don't remember if she had a reason for giving it to me, other than she must have thought I'd like it. I think I thought it was sort of goofy at the time, but for some reason, I kept it. I came across the poster again in college, and this time it struck a chord with me.
It's called "How to Be An Artist" and it's graphic prose from someone named Sark. It's a nice allegorical look into all the little reminders that those of us living a little ways off the beaten path need.
