"They say that if you'll ask a thousand people, you'll get a thousand opinions. Every person has a different taste and view, and different things that are important for them to say. So how do you know what's 'right'? what 'will work'? 

In the end, it is you and yourself who takes a decision. 

A good artist often has to have the courage to express ideas. Even those that he doesn't dare saying but draws or sculpts them. And this is an entirely different behavior than 'ordinary' people. If I use bluntness, it's not for the sake of bluntness. It's not because I'm a superficial or rude. It's because I don't put limits on myself. 

At the end of the day, an artist has to take risks.

Because any tale can be interesting or boring, it all depends on how you tell the story."
