Creativity and making your art is your exclusive journey that is created within you and moves through you with the only goal being to process your vision and produce what works for you – your choices, your colors, your composition, your mood and your theme.
Does it really matter what anyone thinks of your art, what you’re producing, how often you deliver, and how it “looks?” However nice it is to be recognized and complimented with even the simplest of acknowledgements for your work, it means absolutely nothing in the long run. Do not create for others. And never trust what others say they want over your own creative instincts.
Create what you love and people with find you. Be true to your vision and your work will be discovered. Dedicate yourself to your imagination and creative rewards will follow.
