It is wedding season and it got me thinking about artists, social media and marketing. I have never heard of a bride saying she wants to look exactly like her bridesmaids- same dress, same hair, same shoes. Yet when it comes to art and social media, it seems like artists lean towards being bridesmaids. I get that it is fun to try what everyone else is doing and I get the fear of not fitting in-but- art is exactly the place to stand out! Artists are the BRIDES! It's great to try new things and learn techniques others are teaching, but make that metaphorical wedding gown your own! People pay way more for a wedding dress than a matchy-matchy bridesmaid dress.
Keep that in mind on days you feel afraid to be different. Different gets the first bite of cake.
*Or be the Groom. Either of those is good.
