|Once I when I was feeling bad about myself I wrote a journal about being a loser. So this is what Imosno said to me. |
Listen, Clara. If you keep this kind of attitude then you won't be any different from all those other deviants. You know why? Because they feel the same way. They're putting themselves down because they see all this other skill around them and think, "I'll never get there. Look how far I am from that." But that is the worst thing an artist can do to themselves. You want to be different from all the others? You want to stand out?
Then quit this attitude. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You're an artist. Make up your mind to push forward, not give up, and make some damn art. It doesn't have to be perfect. That 's the point. A carpenter's gotta make a lot of crap chairs before making a good one. If you see art more skillfully crafted than yours, don't put it on a podium. Observe it, study, and see what it does well. Try to mimic that. If it doesn't work, try again. If it's too difficult, try something easier. No need to rush.
Bear in mind that even the greatest artists were 'still improving' even when they died. That's what a true artist is; someone who expresses themselves through their work, ever improving, ever changing, exercising humility and never doubting their capabilities even when they fail. There is no ultimate in the art world, no level of perfection that can outdo all others. There are so many styles and mediums and ideas to be conceptualized that often times it's not even skill that puts us to shame, but uniqueness. As humans, we do have this drive to be 'different'. To put something new on the table. Believe me, you're not the only one who feels this way. You are not alone at all, and you are most certainly not a loser.
If you want to be different-- if you want to stand out-- the very first step is to be the one out of many who did not give up. If you truly have a passion for art, you won't abandon it. Secondly, you're going to work for it. And it's going to be fun. Because even if you're not where you want to be now, you know you will be. You know that every drawing brings you closer to your goal. As long as you're drawing, you're improving, and as long as you're improving, you're changing. And the more we change, the more different and unique we become. We become ourselves. If that makes any sense.
Art is not a competition, it's a way of life. Just as we make our art, our art makes us.
