If You're Not Selling Your Art, You're Not Serving Your Purpose

A consulting call, yesterday.

An artist and author with an enormous ease where it comes to creation.

Empty canvas symptom isn’t something he deals with a lot.

Lucky bastard, I say.

But when it comes to selling, things are different.

Sure he’d like to, and yes he learns and tries.

But for some reason, he’s not moving forward as fast as he could.

During the call we tried to figure out why, and how to fix it.

Because it’s not just that he wants to sell his work – there’s also the fact that if he doesn’t sell, he falls short of the purpose of an artist’s life.

Which is to change the world.

To turn people, to show them the world through your eyes.

To be inspired, uplifted and enlightened.

Yes, to be a different, richer and happier person for having been exposed to the beauty you create.

Lofty?

You bet.

Because artists matter.

Art is massively important.

Just look at works of art that have been revered for centuries or even millenia.

They wouldn’t have survived if art were nothing but a triviality.

Art changes the world.

YOU, artist, change the world.

And if you don’t do everything you possibly can to get seen and get sold, you’re not serving life the way you ought to.

Whether it’s books, dance, music or sculpture or painting: you do the world a favour each time you sell something.

So if you still haven’t gotten to making marketing and sales part of your life, may I kindly suggest you get off your ass and get your sales on?

It’s what you were made for.

Not sales per se, for the sake of it – but because you have the chance to make the world a better place, one work of art at a time.

Go for it. The world’s your oyster.

With pomp and circumstance (and you’d better take it seriously)
