“Creativity is not an antisocial act”. Let go of your ego and remember: there is no one-size-fits-all plan for everybody. Flow with whatever’s good for you”. This is according to Martice Smith who has established herself as a freelance Illustrator and graphic designer having receiving her Bachelor of Arts Degree. The following are some of the approaches she advices every artist to use to get their works exposed so others and who will get to know you and your creations: –
- Be true to yourself by doing that which interests you and that which you consider authentic to you.
- Be open about what you are working on by collaborating on a project with other artists, sharing sneak peeks and ideas of your works in progress and also highlighting various techniques.
- Take records and document what you are doing. You can photograph your work at different stages to give people the experience of how you shape your art work.
- Celebrate other people’s work by teaming up with other artists to spread the word about each other’s recent success. And finally push yourself to try new tools and experiment with unfamiliar techniques.
In summary Martice acknowledges that being open to share your process while allowing for the possibility of people to have an ongoing connection with you and your creativity makes you grow as an artist. Let people know what you have to give them.
