HOW TO BE AN ARTIST

Saturday, 22 July 2017


I have a confession to make.

I don't know if I'll ever be a real artist.

"Real" meaning art becomes my full-on-real-deal-totes-legit job. Right now, art isn't my main squeeze, art is my bit on the side. Art is the babe I can't stop thinking about, even (probs especially) when I'm with my full-time thing. Art is my side chick. 

So, if all I can think about is this sexy babe, with her colours and passion and strings around my heart, then what's holding me back from committing? 

Comfort, fear of the unknown, a bit of a lack of belief in my own skills, blah blah blah.


The thing is, I am an artist, right now, before, and forever. 

I am an artist because all I can think about is creating and colours and bringing these ideas to life. 

I didn't go to art school and I don't have the best tools or a studio or talent leaking from my pores. I haven't won awards or made a mint selling my work. Maybe you've done all of the things or none of them at all. Babe, all that matters is that you make the art.

Artists make art.

That's it. That's the qualifier. That's all you have to do.

MAKE.

THE.

ART.
