I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve witnessed – then been slapped in the face – then crushed by other artists’ talent.
I go through – wow that’s amazing – holy fucking shit balls – why do I bother?
But if the conclusion here is to give up because someone else is so talented, why do I bother actually needs to be answered.
Because if the point is to make a difference to your audience in your own way, it doesn’t matter how good other artists are.
It’s still worth doing it.
