How to Feel Miserable As An Artist
I couldn’t find out who is the author [UPDATE: thanks to M Tappan, credit should be given to Canadian Illustrator Keri Smith for it, so here we go!] of this one but after I’ve enjoyed it once on Sheri Candler Marketing and Publicity Facebook page and then on Art Departmental‘s website , I decided to share it as well.
Out of this 10 points, few are no longer relevant to me, some are in the (painful) work-in-progress stage and 3, 4 and 9 never were issues and hopefully never will. Not so long ago, more than half of this list was my daily routine and I confirm that you do feel miserable when it’s the case. Had I read it before, I might have been able to get out of it sooner. (Or maybe I’m giving myself too much credit.)
I’m sure everybody who works in anything involving a bit of creativity has been, at some point or another, stuck on one these points.
Hopefully it will make you smile, maybe it will make you realize it!
