Why it’s so hard to identify as an artist

I’m glad you talked about the labor of artmaking as well as the reticence to embrace the label “creative”. There’s an antipathy for work and people envy effortless seeming accomplishments. I feel like the arts suffer this double hit of rejecting both the identity and the work of making art.

This was a good read. We need more artists.
