Having been in the creative world for quite a few years with a pretty wide audience, I've had the "honor" (lol) of having my work copied many, many times.
In this episode, I get into why copying someone's work is harmful to not only the original artist but also for the person who is being heavily inspired.
We also get into mental shifts and practical tips for creating good, authentic, ORIGINAL art that is going to help your work thrive. Creating work you are proud of and that speaks from your point of view and personal aesthetic leads to great success in your career.
This topic is sensitive, and I want to approach it with love and understanding, but I also want our industry to grow and improve, and the only way we can do that is by exposing our wounds and allowing them to heal.
Keep creating good work. XO
