I don’t consider myself an artist, but most of my friends are, and I’m married to one. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of behavior that ranges from awkward to outright unacceptable. Here are some dos and don’ts to ensure that your experience with an artist is a good one for both parties. This is…
I know it’s unrealistic to expect every online interaction to be perfect but stuff like this can help folks not be “that person” if they are trying to have a positive interaction with an artist they dig.
I try not to see that stuff as malicious and most of the time it’s just folks not knowing better or thinking about it too much, so if it’s something you have done don’t sweat it ( we are all guilty) But when it’s a repetitive daily thing, or boundaries are constantly pushed and it seems like no one is really putting thought into behavior or don’t seem to think about you as a person with feelings- yes it can really wear you down.
Again, don’t sweat it- but learn from it! :)
