Greetings.
Welcome to the DeviantArt page of Miss Caitlin Gerwig, otherwise known as Miss Cat. Illustrator, writer, Photographer and designer, miss Cat encourages that anything and everything can result in a motivation for creation, and that an unrestrained philosophy is the most powerful trait that any individual could possibly possess. Freedom of thought is her most sincere message and goal to be translated through her work, psychology being her greatest inspiration of all.
Miss Cat is presently working on a double education in Psychology and Digital Arts, to expand her knowledge of the variation between digital and traditional media in the creative field, and to improve her greatest psychological inspiration and motivation in her personal work, passionate interest and overall philosophy.

"I am a creator and a thinker." She states, "Being both, one must not be held back by anything. Take part in my vision in life: Open your mind."

In response to the Article available just right here: www.yesmagazine.org/happiness/…

I was actually bringing up these themes of exactly this manner with my family last night, after the movies conclusion. Anti-class, anti-poverty and anti-controlled rebellion is something that has always been present in humanity, but it can't be denied that it becomes more and more apparent throughout media and fiction of the newer generation, especially with the cast of the internet as the wildfire it can be in regards to ideas, knowledge and symbols. With this in mind, take your head out of the "fiction", out of the movie, out of the book, and look at the /purpose of/ and /production/ of the objective vs. subjective elements of the movie as well the as the books in regards to real life. With ideas of anti-controlled government and equalization thriving over the masses, just looking at the historical progression of things particularly in regards to an organized human government or other group, doesn't it make you wonder; So how far is the /next/ generation going to take us? It starts with an idea. It starts with a message. It starts with a symbol. Even if that message is carefully drawn out through fiction and entertainment behind the underlying principals. It can't be denied that one of the greatest historical motivators for such a growth in the idea, even to this very day, would be the experience of the holocaust.

So, even groups that we are convinced to trust must be sweating in their steps to some degree, but then, as this article poorly but still blatantly points out, there is the distraction of the media and it's affect to pollute the purpose of the idea that started out as something important. Example: Instead of reading into this fiction for what it is and drawing out what it stands for, you might end up collecting licensed merchandize of it to express to others that you like it too, completely missing the point of the idea altogether. It's a distraction. Not to say I don't support creativity, I'm an artist after all, and promote creativity so long as it promotes AN IDEA, but you can't deny the commercialization of things that started out with a purpose and a message that get lost in the mass-production of it.
I mean, consider the commercialization of holidays, like Christmas, Halloween and Valentines Day, for example. I see more seasonal junk at work that people spend hundreds of collected dollars on to celebrate something they really don't even know why they're celebrating anymore. They're distractions from the reality of what they traditionally meant and how things modernly have grown to become. It's a negative desensitization that hides behind popular culture. And people just fall right into the flow of things, most of which not even minutely noticing how much it affects them or the masses that they continue it.
Things aren't necessarily changing as much as they're growing, becoming less contained, and the growth of an idea, a symbol, a meaning; that is what /can/ produce an exceptionally positive production in the end, so long as /that/ doesn't come out polluted by, often times, just plain selfishness and prejudice in mass numbers.

Don't allow yourself to become distracted.

((Totally just stumbles upon this article /completely/ by accident, and I consider it's writing rather poor, it could have done a lot better to have presented what it was clearly trying to suggest and represent, it could have picked a number of better outlets than Harry Potter as a secondary example, I actually got a little bored the longer I read from it, personally; nonetheless, it's a message, and although elementarily presented, it is a message that I have /always/ tried to promote in my life and with my work. Look beyond the objective quality of it. It is not necessarily as bad an article as it's writing quality, as it is a decent article for what it's trying to promote. Again, just another distraction. Never be too judgmental.))

Open your mind. Think for yourself.

I am afraid I would like to be, but this is a website for artists to post their own work on, :/ not a social networking site like Tumblr or Facebook to post the works of others, simply because you admire them. Artists; Illustrators, writers, photographers, crafters and designers work hard to come out with quality content in which they can be admired for. Very few people on here ever read the comments, therefore it is unfair that you are now getting credit for the works of all the people you admire. I'm sure the performance of such an action was not of your intention, I just hope you can now understand the kind of community that this is, along with the do's and don'ts of having an account. Truthfully, if a DA head ever discovered this account, you probably would be warned for copyright violation.

Remove all the works in your gallery that are not of your own creation, only continue to post works that /are/, and then we can be friends. I'm sorry it has to be this way. ║n║

So you don't get in trouble. ^^ I can tell that you admire these creations and ideas, and that they mean a lot to you. When you post something on DeviantArt, you are saying that it was something you made. That's how this site works. For this reason, please show respect for the original creators that you admire by removing these pieces from your DeviantArt gallery.
DeviantArt is a website for artists to post their own works. Not the works of others. 

So, I know my point has been very proven by this point, but do allow me to reiterate: Remove everything in your gallery that was not created by you, continue to post nothing but your own creations, and then I will most willingly be your friend. ^^

I LOVE that movie!! Definitely an all-time favorite. I know, though, right? Me too, and it's not very popular, is it? Well you share good tastes, my friend. You share good tastes. Good catch. *poke* Thank you.

I always want to be sucked in to the tv when i watch it,

 Kinda dark, yet familiar.

I second that to the finest degree. The art, the music, the themes, the culture.. I just melt into it all.. <3 And do you carry any other circusy / experimental macabre interests, my friend?? I love that sort of thing.

Otherwise, hey, I'll leave that up to you, but if you're inspired to, go for it! It gives you a reason to produce work, no? Thanks for the offer.
