So virtual art. How do we make the best of it?


This is probably not going to be your first or last blog related to quarantine. The fact is that, while businesses are beginning to open up and people are actually leaving their house; we still have a long way ahead to normalcy. This significantly effects everyone, but especially people who depend on the outside world to stay sane--and sometimes those are the introverted artist-types that love sitting outside for hours just to get some inspiration. No shame in it! We're all struggling, and the important part of it is learning to adapt and make the best out of the situation. Let's get into it!



Are you giving it your all?

Pretty self-explanatory in my opinion. If you're letting something stop and dictate what you love doing, you simply have to look at your abilities from a different perspective. Making excuses for your lack of productivity will only prove to be detrimental to you in the long run. Art is versatile, and because it is--it's incredibly easy to create regardless of environments. Tune out the chaos or even recreate it. Reflect and deflect. It's all up to you.



Social media's there for you...in unlikely times.

Online opportunities are always around the corner! Social media is the biggest elephant in the room. You can try to forget about, but its presence lingers for the better and the worse. While it has its toxic moments, you can't beat its ability to form connections globally. Because of this, its opportunities can create lead many influencers/artists to success, even in lockdown. Virtual opportunities are more popular than ever, intern ads skyrocketing and landing on everyone's home page. Quarantine has proven social media's effectiveness, showing how the "end" doesn't define its means.



Put yourself out there.

You can't possibly expect things top naturally come to you. Natural talent has to be nurtured and developed, pretty much just a complicated way of saying that you just have to be bold once in a while. Trying new things, taking up new opportunities, being spontaneous once in a while is what makes an artist, an artist. Taking a leap of faith is more easy than you think, and the virtual handicaps allow room to be more confident through a screen. If all else fails, just fake it 'till you make it.
