Just something to keep in mind as you're working on your latest project. Some people who don't work on art might think that art needs to resemble something... that it needs to look like something to get what it means.
To help them realize that art doesn't have to resemble something is tricky. The best answer I have it to create your art the way you want and be honest in how you are interpreting something. The honest you are, the more it should show up in your work.
