Many artists often appear disgruntled, portraying sadness and frustration. Unfortunately, a significant number of them are labeled as “starving artists” due to the world’s lack of understanding about their profession. Parents discourage their children from pursuing art because they believe it is not a viable career and may lead to destitution.
The truth is that the world can be a challenging place for artists.
If you aspire to become one, you must have a strong support system of friends who can uplift you, develop a unique style, and most importantly, know how to market yourself and your artwork. You must also develop a thick skin to withstand the criticism that comes with the creative process.
