#imitation of #mulhollanddrive or #tbt? I have no idea what lies ahead and thus I (continuously) revert, regress, throw back, get vert, contemplate #Geworfenheit. I stick to what I know best -- my #audience.

A question on another post from @melliemel84 this morning has me thinking. I discussed this adage with a friend the other day, but I struggle with the concept. I'd like to know what other artists think. I'm tagging you in the comments because I'm particularly inspired by you. #art #imitation #etsy #handlettering
faithienic : I just pullted up the blog earlier this am that @thehipsterhousewife mentioned and was coming back here to post--so good! http://www.valmariepaper.com/creativity-copycats-christians/
thirstyheartsdesign : Well said by everyone. And honestly, I have heard this before and have found it true, that you may need to limit the amount of time you look at other people's work. I don't follow a ton of hand lettered designers for TWO reasons 1.) comparison is the thief of joy and someone will always be far better at this than I am. I can't live up to other's standards, i can only produce what God has given me and I will go nuts going down the rabbit trail of other's work, ya know? God gave you a gift and if that's what makes you come ALIVE, Then keep doing it. 2. The longer I look at others work that I love, I no doubt will naturally make something that leans towards what I just saw. Cause why not? I like it, obviously. And we create what we like. - which goes to the "nothing is really an original idea " :) BUT. If we sit and force ourselves to create something that naturally came out- how much more fulfilling is that? Even if so and so down the street so happened to love the same words and so happened to love the same colors. You will work and live in peace by knowing that you made something that brought you joy and life. If it sells- awesome. If it doesn't- still awesome bc the point really is that we use these creative outlets to soothe our souls and to bring us closer to the Giver I these gifts in us.
thirstyheartsdesign : My friend you heart is so good- and that is obvious. Everyone sees that. Thank you for the awesome compliments and keep creating from within you. Such a great challenge for us all, I think.
thehipsterhousewife : @craftymccraftypants It's tough with lettering - I definitely check out other artists and have copied fonts for practice purposes alone. I think trying so many different things has helped me to develop my own unique style! If you took a class on hand lettering you would start by copying the teacher - we are teaching ourselves, so it's pretty natural to start that way. I do love what was quoted in the post and I think that's a good rule of thumb for all of us "if someone else is doing the bulk of the work you're copying". Thank you for starting this convo it has definitely got me thinking!!
thirstyheartsdesign : And OBVIOUSLY my INSTA skills are amazing and forgot to tag @suzhoops @thehipsterhousewife in the beginning :)
thehipsterhousewife : @thirstyheartsdesign LOVE what you had to say! Comparison is truly the thief of joy - I've only recently been able to appreciate others skill and work as being something unrelated to my own, and that's only after God worked a big change in my arrogant heart! We are all uniquely gifted, and we all have something to offer!
craftymccraftypants : I absolutely love everything everyone has said. My heart is so full! I absolutely appreciate everyone's opinions and truths. I am definitely challenged in a good way! Thanks everyone for the robust and beautiful, encouraging conversation! @thirstyheartsdesign @thehipsterhousewife @suzhoops @faithienic @campgrl729
suzhoops : @thehipsterhousewife @thirstyheartsdesign and @craftymccraftypants this has been a really helpful conversation! I'm glad you brought it up! I also agree with everything that's been said by everyone! It's nice to know that I'm not the only person who worries about these things. Lol:) keep up the beautiful work, all of you!! I love seeing what you all come up with next:)
