OFTEN IMITATED NEVER INTIMIDATED
I'm typically a very open person and maybe let people into my world more easily than I should.
Lately I've had mixed feelings about how much of my work I should share with the public. Part of me wants to express my art form visually for all to see but recent "flattery" from other providers has made me hesitate.
We've all heard the saying, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. "
Bullshit! To me imitation is a sad attempt of the unsuccessful to try and ride on the coattails of those that are successful. The difference is that one takes effort and the other takes none. I can honestly say that I work my ass off behind the scenes and am constantly pushing myself to come up with new, innovative moves, training techniques, sessions, music, photos, blogs, videos, marketing, etc. And when someone blatantly tries to immulate several aspects of my work it just irks me!
I think it's great to get inspiration from fellow artists but take those and fucking create something of your own!
The problem with trying to be like someone else is that you never will be! So this is where my hesitating to share stops. A part of me is frustrated but my conscious mind knows that you can take all of my moves, you can market yourself just like me, you can buy everything that I buy, but you will never be me and you will never bring what I bring! And honestly this slap in the face just drives me to work harder, be more innovative and push it beyond the masses.
So here it is, one of many videos to come, showing more of my art. There are little flares of my personal style, take it if you want, but I've got much, much more up my sleeve and one thing that I will always have beyond the imitators is my innovate mind where the idea and plans never cease!
