This is a picture of me meeting Ghostemane, a personal hero of sorts. On the one hand, it’s great that I got to meet him, that we shook hands and chatted and he even appreciated and thanked me for my art. But on the other hand, my will is to make a living through my art, which requires a lot of striving. Ghostemane knows this all too well. The message of this edited photo of us is to say: Don’t settle for letting other people monopolize your definition of art; you may learn and be inspired from external sources, but always remember that you yourself are capable of reaching success and joy as well, because you too are an artist in your own unique way. Did you take a selfie you’re really proud of recently? That’s great, now why not try editing it in some sort of creative way! This may sound egocentric at first, but step back and realize that no artists who have made a name for themselves stewed in their own hesitancy and fear of putting themselves out there, making themselves into art, learning to see even the mundane aspects of themselves as useful tools and to foster their sensibilities and aesthetics in new ways.
You may think that you’re merely a common person, merely a fan, merely someone whose art is only a hobby, but that’s only if you treat it as such. You have to keep pushing your own boundaries, you have to really learn to love yourself, to keep saying “I AM worth it, I AM great, I AM creative,” and so on and so forth. Remember, every man and woman is a star, there’s endless capacity in each and everyone of us for realizing dreams we never thought were possible. So do yourself a favor, don’t be ashamed for taking a little pride in yourself, don’t be embarrassed when you receive compliments, and don’t let anybody knock you down. Embrace constructive criticism as a learning point, but don’t let anybody or even yourself tell you to quit pursuing your dreams. The goal of this life is to achieve your true will.
