Not For The Proud and Weak

Listen! The Art world is Not for the Proud and Weak. Period. Don't read any further if you don't want to be criticized....

From the very moment you start showing your artworks your work will undergo scrutiny. Because Art can never be Art unless it stands scrutiny. 

Don't expect also that everybody will be CONSTRUCTIVE or Gentle because Not all who will see your work are Experts or Ally. They will even attack you as a "Person" because this is SHOW business for your informations. 

Don't you ever think that all these "self-proclaimed" critics do is to BELITTLE or DOWNGRADE you, that's a very childish thought. In fact "Constructive Criticism" are always met with HOSTILITY by the Proud and Weak. 

Because YOU yourself as an artist is a critic of things you saw around you, YOU yourself as an artist scrutinized the thoughts of others and translate them into your artworks, YOU yourself as artist is the MOST BOASTFUL critics of BEAUTY. "Who gave you the rights to decide what is beautiful anyway?"

It is PRIDE to expect that everybody will LIKE your work. ART is not about your VAIN or empty imaginations that everybody in this planet will APPRECIATE what you are doing.

If you HATE critics then HIDE your work under your bed or bury them.

YOu say you are a HOBBYIST and not an artist...then focus your concern in entertaining yourself because once you show them to the world you already start performing like an Artist. 

A hobbyist singer who create NOISES will never be met with praises my friend. 

Start Thinking as an Artist but Don't to forget to wear a Heart of stone. Because once again, take it from your Kuya Fher...the Art world is NEVER meant for the PROUD and WEAK!!!! 

The Bible said, be gentle as dove but wise a serpent!


You know what? Maybe my problem is that I cared too much for the Newbies or more accurately for Arts. Perhaps, because I was once like you who dream and expected too much...and failed...or perhaps I gave up too early.
Now my second chance....not to redeem my self as an Artist...but to Guide the young dreamers. Maybe, just maybe I failed then and return for these one let you know that this place is full of thorns and traps.
Carry on, Newbies...but Don't rely on false Hope.
The word Struggle is much better than Pride.
