Important People

Social Media’s have created a new kind of imposter: the “Important Person”. There are actually two kinds of important people: those who really are important and those who use social medias to create the perception of being important.

You have seen the posts ladened with clever, witty, “look at me” kinds of posts. Sometimes the post takes on the “look at how that person is not as good as me” inference. In reality, most of the time these “important people” never have a good idea of their own, but rather take someone else's thought, embellishes it a bit, and then posts it as their own thought or idea. Makes them look important.

And as much as I hate to admit it, we artists are the some of the worst offenders of “self anointed important people”. My suggestion is to spend more time creating and less time boasting. Let your art do the talking for you and the rest will take care of itself. Even this blog is a total waste of time. Back to work.

On an unrelated topic, the lovely model in the photos is Shay Iverson. You can view more of Shay in her gallery here.
