The #1 thing you need to do to be a Great Artist!
I am an artist, and I want to be great!!! In fact I want to be phenomenal. I want to be a phenomenal author and artist. And I know the one secret to get me there. The one thing that will actually make a difference between myself and anyone else. And really the one thing that will make a difference between myself and EVERYONE else. It's not magical Bippity Boppity Boo, though boy do I wish it was. It's also NOT talent that's defined as a natural aptitude or skill. One story we all have to stop telling ourselves and everyone else is that the reason people are popular, or talented is because they just are, they just have that natural ability or natural skill. BOGUS.
The number one thing YOU need to do if you want to be a great artist, or heck if you want to be a great anything is to work hard. SO what does that mean for artists?
#1) It means taking every art class you can get your grubby little paws on.
