So, before I started my blog, I was having some trouble figuring out how to put my artwork out there. I was overthinking the process of what works and what doesn’t, how to build a brand name, how to connect with my audience, and so on. There were so many ideas exploding in my head, that I eventually gave up thinking about it all together. In spite of a headache I caused myself, I resolved to get inspiration from books; art books, motivational books, just anything that would help me unlock my creativity.
Luckily for me, I came across this book called, “‘Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon. Trust me when I tell you, this book is THE BOMB DIGGITY!!! It covers areas on how to handle negativity, structure and strategity, networking, branding, and most importantly, how to own your shit! If you’re like me, where you have or had issues finding your way into this art world, this book is for you!! It will help give you the same confidence that Kanye West has for himself, lol, that’s how great it is. Therefore, I provided an Amazon link down below, so that you too can start creating and sharing your story.
