The Starving Artist
You've all heard the phrase "starving artist"... Many of you are, trying to make ends meet and still have that creative need fed. With the advent of social media, we've now had a way to reach out directly to everyone we know all the time and show our work, our creative endeavors to each other. With that though, has come a price that I know we all feel from time to time. We can only subscribe and like and twitter and share and promote so much before we want to scream because we can't do it all. Or maybe that's just me..... And I'm no different then the rest of you artist friends and family, wanting to share my work and get subscriptions to the Web Channel I'm creating.... So how do we, as part of this creative community in constant need of creative food to keep us going, not burn out on trying to support each other as well as put ourselves out there?
Well, here is the word: INTERACTION.
"Well Duh." you say with a bit of a eyebrow raise. "That's what we've been doing." So let me clarify. Yes, interact with your fellow artists, but remember, they're working to be noticed too. Remember to reach out to the rest of the world, you know, people who don't starve if they can't act, write, direct, produce, be in the entertainment business. There is a whole populace out there and if you ignore them, well..... why would they feed you?
That all being said, Yes, still like and subscribe and support those who are starving with you. We need our peers. Here is my pitch to include you all, my fellow starving artists, and the rest of the world out there. :) Enjoy!
