I wanted to put together a top 10 list of habits or actions that make you become a successful artist. And get and bunch of opinions from different artists. Thoughts? What would be your list?
I can come up with a few... maybe not ten though.
1. Persistence - you just have to keep doing it, something will click, time helps
2. Loans - chances are you won't have any money, get loans and then pay them back forever
3. Have Fun - a lot of times it starts to feel like your work is just that... work. Remember that it can also be fun... and should be
4. Don't Ever Apply for shows that make you pay a fee. As a matter of principal, you should never have to pay someone to look at your work, besides, you probably don't have any money anyway
