There is a misconception in the current social climate is that one should be an Youtuber, or Instagramer. This mentality can acrew to the artist circle too. The problem with the term artist is that it’s too broad. It’s kind of a useless term unless one is in the academic circle of fine art. Then, that artist title can have a merit to it. But in the meantime for everyone else…
They are better-off having a more niche job description in mind.
Ranging from Cartoonist, Illustrator, Inker, Pixel, and the list of more specific spots goes on.
‘See, artists are becoming more and more obsolete since everyone want something more specific as the internet allowed for these niche obsessions to become a thing. In my case, I stayed away from the Digital Works due to the fact, it’s becoming the majority for industry-level artists and workers. But Paper and Pen type artists aren’t as common nor there are initially enough good-level artists out there that can get noticed and be worth working with long term.
It’s better to be that Brushpen Cartoonist, or the Mecha Desinger.
Because it’s such a niche creative job title that people who care will actually remember them most likely.
The problem with being an artist is that it’s not a very viable title nor association anymore with many people calling themselves so-called artists, it’s only a matter of time before the boat flips over and it loses it’s real meaning.
So, in the meantime it’s better to cultivate the concept of illustrator, designer, cartoonist, animator, etc so there is a more tangible meaning to it.
Just because you can draw, sculpt , or even paint means that you are considered an artist. You’re product or piece of work isn’t up to spec. Chances are, you are amateur if you spread your attention that much to too many radically different mediums.
Those who focused on a few or one thing only. They earned a position in the field at that point.
Stop it, just stop calling yourself an artist, content creator, CEO life, etc.
Chances are, you are doing a big disservice to everyone anyways.
Just figure out your actual Job, and focus on that aspect.
Keep it Real.
