Rules are for fools.
Atleast in art.
May be in science, you will be rewarded for being the most ardent follower of the trend. But in art, trends are usually what you are expected to create.
You have to be exceptionally unique and irreplaceable.
Claude Monet, Michelangelo, Andy Warhol, Micheal Jackson, Bruce Lee are gone.
No one can replace them. Don’t even try.
Introduce someone else to the world. YOU! Uniquely YOU!
Your customers, your investors, your boss and your girlfriend might have seen the mediocre you. Show them the ‘sensational side.'
