What is it that drives an art career? Is it passion? Is it determination? Is it practical knowledge? I posit that it’s a combination of all of these and more. To succeed as an artist, you must first have the drive to create. But beyond that, you must stay the course even though it can be difficult sometimes. And, just as importantly, you must know where to find the resources you need to keep you able to work as an artist. That means including the search and submission process in your regular routine.
