Daily Deviation

Given 2008-12-02
The Desperate Engineer by ~narloke is a representation of what many have to face after graduating. I congratulate the artist on the originality of thought and sheer effectiveness of expression...and make-up! I'm sure by now you understand why I chose this self-portrait to be my last Artistic Nude DD and that you'll love it as much as I do! ( Featured by Helewidis )

Engineers are the nameless artists that bring beauty and utility to the civilized world.

May your engineering days be creative and fulfilling!

Engineering is a noble profession. My dad was an engineer, I probibly should have been. But I feel your pain anyway.

I had to face the decision of going into engineering, or doing a Japanese/art route in my freshman year of college. I decided to go with the Jap/art route, since I'd been pulled towards that sort of enjoyment all my life, and although my mindset is mathematical and engineer-oriented, a way of thinking wasn't enough to keep me from what I really used as an outlet.... But that's just me. :)

Anyway, this is a very cool photograph. Usually, I don't care for photography, but this one (along with its title) intrigued me.

Great job. And remember, engineers are still artists. :)

I am sorry for your predicament, but I must urge you to have as much fun doing whatever you do for all of your life, as that is what counts the most :)
