An interesting article by WBPark, a New York Cartoonist, who describes his acceptance in a great publication like a narcotic to cartoonists. Park’s story typifies each one of us who strive to maintain that committed working relationship we have with our creative-selves.
My personal narcotic, at this point in time, is validation -and I’m getting loads of it. Moreover, my survival tactic thru the low-points is stalking other artists to examine their marketing techniques and determine if it is relavent to my own. All this as I sharpen my own selling blade -while drinking wine, of course.
What’s your narcotic? More importantly, how do you survive thru the low points?
