In My Own Image

drying

I read this great essay about Women and Narcissism over at Rookie the other day. Anna Fitzpatrick talks about the double standard for women – how if we’re proud of and exited about our own creative work we must be full-of-ourselves and narcissistic. But it’s important to believe in yourself and make art that you think is great. If you don’t believe your work is special, you’ll have a hard time convincing someone else. That’s something I’m working on remembering.
