JAVA had this on one of her gallery pages and I think this is really important to get out there.

HOW TO FEEL MISERABLE AS AN ARTIST

(OR WHAT NOT TO DO, UNDERLINE ANY THAT CURRENTLY APPLY)

1. CONSTANTLY COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHER ARTISTS. (I need to STOP this)

2. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY ABOUT WHAT YOU DO AND EXPECT THEM TO CHEER YOU ON.

3. BASE THE SUCCESS OF YOUR ENTIRE CAREER ON ONE PROJECT. (I think last FC's artshow was a delightful surprise but...i doubt it will happen again anytime soon)

4. STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW.

5. UNDERVALUE YOUR EXPERTISE.

6. LET MONEY DICTATE WHAT YOU DO. (hahahahahahaha yeah thats me...)

7. BOW TO SOCIETAL PRESSURES.

8. ONLY DO WORK THAT YOUR FAMILY WOULD LOVE.

9. DO WHATEVER THE CLIENT/CUSTOMER/GALLERY OWNER/PATRON INVESTOR ASKS.

10. SET UNACHIEVABLE/OVERWHELMING GOALS. TO BE ACCOMPLISHED BY TOMORROW.
