The Art Fair Will Prove That You Can Do Anything

Go ahead. You can do it.

There’s this sentiment we can sometimes sense in all struggling artists

Or possibly in everyone who yearns to create – that, somehow, it’s no longer possible to come up with anything that is entirely unique.

It’s a valid thought, but here’s the thing:

“No matter who you are, I know this to be a fact: that you have interests.

That there is something you go to bed thinking about.

That there is some experience you’ve had that not everybody has had. That there are lessons you’ve learned in your road less taken.

That there is some version of the world you’d like tomorrow to be.”

Julie Zhuo wrote this about the struggle of finding something to write about, but the idea can also be applied to all kinds of artistic expression.

Think about it:

You have dreams:
