Is Your Art Real or Fake?

You’ve likely heard it before but I bet you haven’t done anything about it.

You know that old adage about the shoemaker? Simply, if your art is shoemaking but you’re hobbling around in a tattered pair, you’re sending a bad message.

You don’t have to have the most elaborate shoes or best shoes you’ve ever made, but for goodness sake wear a set that don’t welcome criticism.

If you are guilty of this professional faux pas let me tell you what I might be thinking: you’re a liar. Your art or talent doesn’t really exist and you’re just someone who makes shoes because you have no choice. Quite frankly, I don’t want to buy your shoes any more.

Are you so caught up in producing your product that you’re hurting your own reputation? Or are you broadcasting your weaknesses because you don’t even know what they are?

Think about it.
