I don’t know what it is about ART but I’ve noticed lately that when it comes to “sharing” is a hard thing to do with other artist. Wither its ideas, techniques, resources or simply giving encouragement it is not easy.
I hate to say it but I’m guilty of this.
I don’t know what it is we are so afraid.. maybe we see each other as competition or we think if we tell people how we do what we do they will do it better. I’ve had so many people, artist, teachers and friends pour into me along the way and I want to do that for others. Imagine what it would look like to have a community of artist working together and collaborating on things instead of working against each other. I want to change and break out of this “my ideas are only mine” mindset.
We should SHARE. We should share everything! Nothing would be lost by sharing ideas but it could result in some beautiful art. So if you’re an artist looking for inspiration or help I may not be your answer but I’d love to get coffee with you, share ideas and have a good talk!
I’ll start by sharing a wonderful post I read today on “brush lettering.” People have asked me how to do it and basically this is the best step by step explanation I’ve read! enjoy!
