Historic Black and White Pictures Restored in Color 

The history of photography is only about two hundred years old and the period when it was possible to take coloured pictures is a lot shorter than that. However, colour makes us perceive the image we view as more realistic. Fortunately, there are communities of colourizing black and white photography enthusiasts, such as  r/ColorizedHistory , that bring us emotionally closer to our roots with their work.

You get home from a long day at work and turn on the TV. It’s been a long week, so you think to yourself- maybe i’ll take the family to a movie on Saturday. Maybe we’ll even go on a vacation soon! We could visit museums and go to plays and see all sorts of fun attractions. When you turned the TV on, nothing happened. There are no actors to entertain you. When you went to the movie theater, nothing was showing. There were no advertisements to tell you that anything was showing, so you went to the theater to find out. Nothing playing. There is no one to film and create movies for you. Well at least your vacation will be fun, right? Not like there will be any plays to see and there won’t be anything in the art museums. Well at least you have the shack you are living in that you made out of cardboard and sheets. Not like you could find an architect to build you a house with all the money you’re making as an engineer.

Yeah but they mean no one gives a shit about the degree. You can train to be an artist outside of the collegiate. You rarely walk up to someone and be like ‘I’m a trained artist’. You show them a body of work. You make your own ‘degree’.
When you can walk into a business and the fact you have a degree in illustration on its own, means you’re highly likely to get the job, then I’ll disagree. Cause I have one and it feels useless commercially.

think what they were implying was the training that presumably came with a degree course
