Clint's Must-Read Articles for Artists - Week of 3/2/08

by Clint Watson on 3/10/2008 9:04:59 AM

Natalie Roberts at Surrealmuse Studios encourages you to Challenge yourself to take artistic leaps:

"So if you find yourself emerged in creating from comfort, challenge yourself to try a different medium or style. These experiments in time will lead to inspiration, and possibly even a new direction with your artistic path."  (Read Original . . .)

***

Seth teaches us more lessons about nurturing our best fans with a Bruce Springsteen illustration:

"Bruce won over each one of those fans - one at a time - and began a relationship. One he respects highly. And every so often he throws a party and we're all invited to come over for a few drinks to celebrate that relationship - and for that, we'll gladly chip in about 2 or 3 hundred to help cover the cost." (Read original . . .:)

***

Artist Marsha Robinett at The Extraordinary Pencil explains why you, as an artist, need to embrace RSS:


"Because it's an easy way for information that appears on your favorite websites to be regularly delivered to your computer in organized files, ready to read at your convince....kind of like the way the paper boy delivers the morning paper, but unlike the paper...its a FREE subscription!" (Read original . . .)

***

The Technium explains why artists should forget about the "long tail" and focus on finding "true fans:"

"A creator, such as an artist, musician, photographer, craftsperson, performer, animator, designer, videomaker, or author - in other words, anyone producing works of art - needs to acquire only 1,000 True Fans to make a living." (Read original . . .)

***

Sue Smith of Ancient Artist asks, "Can You Find Your Artistic Voice, Even When No One is Listening?:"

"I'm not a futurist. I don't claim to have any prescient talent, even -- especially! --when I'm painting. But I do know that I don't want to continue careening frantically around trying to find that Rags-to-Riches pathway to artistic success.

So what does that mean to the Ancient Artist?

It definitely does not mean that I throw in the towel. It means that I have been given the opportunity to do with my "art career" what I do with my "art work." To savor the moment, wander around the spaces and reconnect with being present in the moment. To reclaim the joie de vivre of being an artist." (Read original . . .)

***

If  you've been procrastinating starting your own blog because you are not a good writer....then your excuse has just been taken away:

Skellie explains Why Great Writing Doesn't Matter Online:

"If you’ve ever fretted about not being a good enough writer, I hope I can convince you to allay your fears. Good writing, clever writing, beautiful writing — all of these things are unnecessary in the creation of great web content. In this medium, writing is just a vehicle for entertaining ideas, useful ideas, novel ideas and practical ideas. All great web writing must do is communicate great ideas without getting in their way." (Read original . . .)
