Your work isn’t unpopular. You are.
That’s what conclusion I’ve come to for a while.
I’m not much of a social person. I have a hard time making artsy friends because I have an inability to lie. If I ever find myself talking to another artist who I get a long with as a person, but don’t like their art, I don’t know what to do. I usually just try to avoid the topic of art all together. I can’t just be nice for the sake of being nice. I can’t say the things I know I should say, but don’t believe. I think that’s one of the reasons I can’t get through an interview or hold a job for long.
I want to go to comic conventions so bad but I get the feeling that would just be worse for me. I can’t talk to people. I even get weird around people I know. I’d come off as that person that ever podcast warns you not to be. Head always down unable to make eye contact.
Does that mean I’m doomed never to succeed? Maybe I should hire someone to be my public face. I just don’t know how to not be this person.
