How do you handle criticism?
Everyone has a different answer.
Some people graciously accept it and use it to their advantage whilst others brush it aside as ‘haters’. In this live cast I share stories from my own experience and give tips on how artists can get the most from criticism and ignore the ones that don’t matter.
“Criticism is easy, art is difficult.”
“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”
“Know that the amount of criticism you receive may correlate somewhat to the amount of publicity you receive.”
“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”
-Frank A. Clark
“It is ridiculous for any man to criticize the works of another if he has not distinguished himself by his own performances.”
“Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting”
Now that you’ve heard my thoughts on the matter, what do you think? Should artists gracefully accept criticism or trust their gut and do what they think is right?
