I'm not sure how many different things there are in my world that I can actually do for living.
and for sure the ceramic's is the best thing I can actually do and and do good. But I feel so tired that I can't actually do ceramics because I live in country where everything ... oh what's the use. I can only keep on doing what I'm good at.
I don't know why there's so hard for people to support artist... why the same people who look at your art and say tell you how amazing stuff you've made... will not buy anything...
so I started this Patreon thingie, I think it's all fine even with Finnish idiotic laws because I wont be asking just supporters to send money, but I give stuff back too. In theory this could be super great thing for artist... but.. here's the thing. even that I have over 1000 followers in facebook most of them are just.. lurkers.. maybe like some drawing, painting, sculpture now and then. but I have no idea what I'm writing..
I think I'm little depressed at the moment.. I'm a man and I would love to be bring more bread to my family but world around seems to be fighting against me in every turn. I'm broken, I've tried every other profession I've just thought I could handle. but art's n crafts is only that I can do and I'm good at (well, the ceramics at least) but how to make start when everything around you cost more than you can make. to start a business you need to be lawyer just to understand all the bureaucracy... so.. try to think how it feels for man who has dyslexia and bipolar disorder.
I miss my childhood, back then, I think, my brains did work better. Now.. all I need to have small meltdown is to chance in my routine.
still.. I can only hope things will get better. I will continue do art, maybe get somehow better equipment and even small studio .. but it'll be slow when there's no one willing to help. and I can partly understand it. times are horrible...
but It's all I can do.. so .. I do my best to be awesome!
