DAY 54 - HOW TO BE AN ARTIST / by Debra Matlock

Lesson 12: Know What You Hate

It is probably you.

Exercise: Make a List of Art
Make a list of three artists whose work you despise. Make a list of five things about each artist that you do not like; be as specific as possible. Often there’s something about what these artists do that you share. Really think about this.

#3 Thomas Kinkade

  1. Does he even count?

  2. Is he a real artist??

  3. Just the worst kind of cliched art

  4. His fans aren’t anyone I want to have anything to do with

  5. seems like a glorified hobbyist

I worry about only being number 5 and never getting past that.
