I ask because I work with this guy who was in graphic design for 30 years. He worked for several companies. He has what seems to be this superiority complex towards other artists. Like nothing they have done can compare to the stuff he did over the years. He goes as far to say that they are not artist and stuff like that. Which is offensive in my opinion. He thinks everybody is dumb, and their work is average at best. Even if the work is amazing, he won’t admit it. I don’t say much in response to this; except maybe to encourage him to produce some artwork of his own so we can see some of his experience at work. His claim is “I did that for 30 years, I’m done with it…”.
Is this what happens to people when they have been in the art industry for so long…or is this guy just a jerk?
