As a creator, marketing and sales…not my thing. It’s not a passion. It’s not the most enjoyable “thing” to do. It’s a necessary thing if, as a creator, I want to make, well, sales.
Let’s be honest, artists and creatives of all kinds market and try to sell their craft. The creativity is just a by product when it comes to the business of art.
I know however, in my heart of hearts, I would create even if I didn’t have a channel to sell my artwork. I love the creating. That’s what I do.
With that, of course I have to show off some of the goods. I love hoodies. I live in them from the moment the cool, Northeast air settles, until the unbearable humidity hits. A good hoodie is a good hoodie.
Remember that creativity is about craft. It’s about practice. It’s about the passion that you have inside. If you want to create paper windmills with polka-dots, go ahead. If you want to make hoodies, go ahead. The point is to create.
P.S. Creativity is better in a hoodie too.
