I’ve been thinking a lot lately about creators who love creating art whether it’s writing, illustration, cosplay, graphic design, music, video games, apps, films, web series, podcasts, etc. We all fall into the trap of thinking that the art we create is worth something and we ask someone to buy that art for a fee. But in reality it needs to be the other way around.
I’m here to tell you we need a paradigm shift back to an old concept. Artists were tasked by patrons to create a piece of art and that patronage would fund that art. We need to bring the patron back. That’s why I’m going to follow this statement and have it as a motto for my life and I hope you as artists will join with me in this.
ART IS FREE. THE ARTIST ISN’T.
