For what is anything made worth of nobody ever sees it?
The answer is zero.
See, as an independent artist, your job is not just to create.
You have to promote yourself too.
And where can you give yourself the best opportunity for success?
I think that today, it starts with a platform.
Maybe the second step is finding a community.
What launched Picasso’s career, transitioning him from obscure artist to one of the most famous painters of the twentieth century, was a willingness to put himself out there. He did not always reveal each step of his creative process, but practicing in public became a lifelong habit for the artist. While others were living in obscurity in Montmartre, he was planting his work where it had the greatest opportunity to flourish, and that’s something we all can do.
