Romanticization of the Artist (Gaming)

I'm an engineer. I do think of my designs as art. Functional art. Even stuff that is purely mechanical and not part of the "aesthetic" requirements I still feel the need to have a look and feel that is pleasing.

I also do pyrotechnics as a side business. In my little pyro company I work with we consider ourselves making art with explosives. A lot of companies just throw up a mixture of shells for the required time period for the show. We actually spend a lot of time planning and experimenting to get unique shows. And as far as suffering artists, the 4th of July is brutal on us. Last year I put in a 26 hour day to shoot a city show, then turned around and shot a 2nd show a day later. That's in Tennessee heat.
