The 'a' word

When someone uses the ‘a’ word when referring to themselves, it can be really annoying. You’d be wise to avoid calling yourself an ‘artist’ if you can. 

I admire those who have been careful not to get caught up in the temptation to give themselves that title, especially on their websites.  Let others call you an artist if they want. Better to just be creative. 

Self-proclaimed artists are often not that creative anyway, unless of course it is in imagining they are artists.

  1. It comes down to money. If you're looking for funding, you're an artist. If you're looking for a loan, you're self-employed!!!
