Creative Courage

December 23, 2014

It’s a lot easier to be a critic than it is to put your own creative work out there in the world.

That’s simply a fact. It requires courage to put your work out there and know that it will be criticized and potentially picked apart. And I’ll always respect that.

No one is entitled to a positive life experience in any regard, artist or not. However, the most important thing for writers, artists, musicians, and other creative types to understand is that you need to design for yourself first. Hell, that’s probably important for anyone who works at an agency to understand too.

Granted, there mostly certainly is a place for critics and curators in the artistic world. Sharing opinions, discussing what a given part of artwork is about and how it makes you feel is definitely valuable.

But in the end, it is the creators who count. No one remembers the critics.
