An incredibly talented person who dedicates the time and hard work to creating a beautiful work of art, be it a sculpture, music, literature, or a painting.

This person has dedicated years of work to mastering his craft, and deserve as much credit as any other professional in a field. They generally have a higher level of creativity and imagination.

Contrary to stereotypical belief, they do not have to forego an education or be on drugs to be an artist.
Lynda marveled at the sculptors skill as she gazed at the realistic deer, soldered out of pieces of scrap metal.

Dr. Smith was quite surprised and blushed when he realized that the artist he had been talking down to was also a doctor.

Ralph, an aspiring artist, worked long and hard on his painting and was proud of the result.

A young, generally mentally tortured person who possesses art supplies. This person is usually regarded as fucking insane during their lifetime, and then called a genius after death, when all of their work goes up in value.

Devoted subscriber to the doctrine of economy of effort. Often despised by the lowly engineer for choosing a degree that won't cause a nervous breakdown or waste an extra year of life. NB: whoever thought they'd be clever and rip artists using my name should have thought twice- that message was posted at 0630h when everyone knows I don't surface til after midday.
I wish I was an artist so I'd be popular with the ladies
