One of my fast selling designs at PaTH market.. Tim is usually.. hmmm.. dare i say humble.. naaa.. i think it’s me that’s humble.. Tim can get cocky when he wants to.
So yea, sometimes, i don’t see what’s wrong with us having some confidence in ourselves, or our art, for that matters. When i feel i’m proud of my work, i’d fav it. when i like a post i share on fb, i’d like it. it’s my account, my wish whether i wanna like or fav it or not, hey~ personally, i feel that an artist or designer who’s not proud of their work enough to like it wouldn’t even share it to anyone.. i have so many designs i did that i’m so ashamed of. and so i’d never share it with anyone cos i’m not proud enough to even like it or fav it.
if i upload something, it’ll be something i did that i like, even if others scorn it and call it ugly, i’d fav or like it still, cos i really do like it.. errr.. ok, i just took all my designs down from my SilentCries account account cos i wanna upload them here instead since we can now categorize our portfolios.. and i’ve managed to get my first batch of earnings from it already.. but yea.. i get a HUGE number of people going “EEE!!!” and “OMG, that’s SCARY!” and “EEE!! that’s so ugly!!” comments on my SilentCries designs over at my stall..
while it hurts sometimes.. sometimes, i’ll end up smiling.. cos no matter how many fears the work.. i have sold it as necklace twice and ring once, all of which cost above $17. so yea.. while there are many that fear my SilentCries series.. there have been several quiet buyers who come to like SilentCries designs enough to purchase them. that makes up for all the scorns the series receive.. i guess i also smile because unknown to those who hate my SilentCries designs, the artist behind those “ugly” pieces is the same artist that did the rude lil monster that they’d purchase in bulk.. aha~ XD
ok i’m rambling.. basically, to all artists and designers, be proud of your works!! Fav them! Like them! Love them!! They’re a part of you, aren’t they? If you didn’t like them, what’s the point of uploading them to show to the world hey? so yea, be proud of yourself, be proud of your work!!! =D
