When thinking about art, #efficiency is rarely the word that comes to mind.
But if you study the career of artists, regardless if they find themselves in the fine art, editorial or commercial world – you’ll notice elements of repetition.
The most financially successful artists are the ones that have figured out how to operationalize aspects of their careers.
Repetition leads to greater efficiency in delivering an experience which creates more profit that finally leads to financial stability.
As an artist addicted to bespoke, custom, and novel projects – the key to sustaining my experiments has been the repeatable components: speaking engagements, licensing opportunities, and consulting gigs.
Adding efficiency ironically helps enable more #creativity, as long as we don’t allow it to take over our careers.
