Key Takeaways

“If the times are bad, use art as a therapy for yourself, and just try to find the artistic essence in yourself … what story you got to tell us? You are a great addition to the artistic community”

  • Larienne always adds little back stories for her drawings on Instagram
  • Larienne thinks that artists should focus on different social media because you never know what happens with the algorithms and where the clients are coming from
  • When communicating with clients, be organized, create a schedule, answer their questions, show them WIP, update them on your progress
  • Before starting, Larienne wishes she knew that you shouldn’t compare yourself to other artists – you are unique, you got your own pace and you need to focus on self-development
