There from Here
There is a saying attributed to people from Maine that goes "You can't get there from here". Maine is infamous for having convoluted road systems and getting directions can be quite complicated. The saying insinuates that the directions to get from one place to another are too involved to explain to the person asking. I often feel that asking artists how they got started elicits the same response, you can't get there from here.
This year I am starting a new series of blog posts documenting emerging artist's transitions to making art their full time gig. I want to demystify the various paths that people have taken. As an emerging artist myself I hope to answer, through the example of those a few steps ahead of me, how to get there from here.
