My conlanging is a hobby, too. There's little in it I could call artful (but
then I tend to have a low opinion of my own work). If I [still] painted,
that would be a hobby I would hesitate to call art; it would be for
enjoyment only, like the conlanging. But I do feel that conlanging in
general is an art form, and here on this list we have our own Matisses,
Dalis, Turners and Lichtensteins. /Blessed Jorthel/, Campbell, stop being so
