172: When You Make SH*T Art


“When you make shit art, you just have to get up and make more art.”

You just got done with your big project. Your magnum opus. You had been envisioning it for years, it was beautiful, it was impactful, it was amazing! But when all was said and done, and you stepped back, it didn’t look like that at all. It looked like shit.

If this has happened to you, contrary to what you may have thought at that point, you are not alone. And today’s episode of NION Radio is all about what to do when what you make doesn’t live up to what you saw in your head. Listen in to learn what it means if you find yourself making shit art, what to do next, and what it takes to stop making shitty art.
