The Fear of Failure
"Know or listen to those who know."
Baltasar Gracian

This quote is so important that we forget about the meaning from time to time, I´m glad someone mentioned on twitter the link to a Milton Glaser speech about the fear of failure.
In this Video below he describes the process of failure which seems to be contradictory to professionalism as an important asset for creative people.
He encourages to embrace failure and that by transgression an artist can develop a unique style that leads to a unique selling proposition.
In a world where everyone guesses that everything is already invented, the only way to find a niche is to allow, even embrace - failure.
Milton Glaser – on the fear of failure. from Berghs' Exhibition '11 on Vimeo.
In my opinion its important to be caref

Fan Art Law

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan ar

Sandra Hultsved.
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
My name is Sandra Hultsved and I am a self-taught artist, based in Stockholm, Sweden. I create art from my emotions and depict stories about dark romance, melancholy and unfortunate events, which gives a sense of quiet desperation. I draw my artworks mainly with graphite pencils and ink, with great inspiration from nature - particularly the forests of Värmland, where I grew up.
The real dark place for me is the reality, there’s too much crap in this world and sometimes I can’t take no more. Therefor I flee into my own fairytale world and to my art, then I can endure a little bit longer. Art has always been my form of therapy and the only true way for me to express my inner feelings.

I’m open for commissions and freelance work. Currently I’m seeking gallery representation.
