I want to be a famous artist, I really do. I bet most people want to be famous something. Well, for me, I want to be know by my good skills at art, but not just that. I want to get somewhere in life, like not just be and introvert artist and sit on my computer all day painting, I really like that but it's not enough. Today, an artist must aspire to be something more than just an illustrator or painter, he/her must be and entrepreneur, a social media mogul, an advertiser. It seems to me that the world want you to combine your artistic skills with your people skills. I believe that for most artists that must be a tedious obligation. We can't work without people! I want to build these skills, try to persevere and go out of my comfort zone, be out there and find my audience. I do believe that I draw good enough to be seen and heard. But I can't help but wonder, how does one become a famous something? I don't have an answer to that question obviously. I listen everyday about success stories and people and they all say that the only thing that u need to be successfull is to believe in yourself. I call major BS on that! That is absolutely NOT the only thing u need to do. U need to be out there, work hard AF, post frequently, but maintain quality, try to earn some cash, develop new skills like charisma, patience, diligence, express yourself, stand in the see of social media, be sane and still try to be a twenty-something. Some people say that people who got around good are just lucky to have been born in a good country or in lucky circumstances, I really don't know what to say to that. Our confidence is already shaken in the start and we don't need that kind of negativity rn.
We all want to get somewhere in life, be someone important, but what to do? What are the magic words for it? Luck, believing in yourself? Hard work?
Dunno, guess I'll tell you if I get there. If.
