  14. lol that's hilarious
  15. You know you are an artist when you are hailed as one, without pushing the thought or idea onto a crowd.
  16. When the deck is really skunked and you have to throw them away you SPRING them into the garbage.

    Your girlfriend's father has such an old, warped, crappy deck at his house you think, "what kind of man ARE you?"

    You have a deck in the bathroom so you can be culling and going at the same time.
  17. You know you're a card artist when..............

    -people constantly ask you if you are going to be a dealer in Vegas

    -you get pissed when someone says "Aren't all cards the same??"

    -you explain to people that they're holding the deck in the wrong hand, as it should be held in the non-dominant one

    -you have a deck for games, a deck for flourishing, a deck for magic, and 200 decks for looking at

    -you can cut the deck in 100 different ways but you don't know how to play Go Fish

    -you complain about how the cards are cheap and bridge-sized while playing UNO

    -the only fight you've been in involved playing cards

    -you actually care that the USPCC moved from Cincinnati to Kentucky

    -you know what the USPCC is......
  18. Every single one of these I can relate to. This is the best one so far.

  20. When you have to plan how to arrange your playing cards in your room, cause you're getting out of space.
