Don't be stingy, Don't be Lazy, Help YOURSELF!!

People can be either selfish or they practice too much self humility.. i think confidence is necessary to survive. One must learn how to be be thick-skinned sometimes and think like a businessman once in awhile..

we can’t just rely on mere word of mouth or just 1 website to promote our art. that’s just an excuse to be lazy. So unless we wanna die like all the great artists of the past, poor and acknowledged only after we die, we should do something for ourselves already!!

Do some networking. Make more friends. Get more contacts. Know more suppliers/printers/artists. Start a joint exhibition. Print some namecards. Form a group in great and “in” networking places such as Facebook and Myspace or something.

The internet is a GREAT place for advertising, and self promotion. If you’re internet smart, you can even promote yourselves without coming out with much money! Places such as Facebook, Myspace, and even blogs are in fact great for networking. in fact, i’m going to start doing some promoting of all my fav artworks in RB in my blog soon.

And having read the entries at the forum started by Karin i am now starting to think of starting a blog meant for those of them who’d be interested in promoting themselves. And also form a facebook group, or ask RB for permission to touch up their application there. Then i wanna see how much we can all gather to invest, and from there, i think we can work out on a advertising plan of some sort, i hope.

seriously, when it comes to spending money, people blanched at the thought of spending $10 and they expect to earn hundreds and thousands for free.. sigh.. there’s no free lunch in this world people.. you gotta work for it, just like you work for your art!

ok… hmm.. i sound very different from the usual bubbly me~ well, if you don’t already know, i am not 24/7 bubbly and hyper. i don’t have an inner monster to humor people. i get very cheesed off when in contact with anyone who’re lazy or irresponsible or makes lame excuses to support themselves. This is why i am no longer working in any company.
