An not following the herd...
Don’t be an acolyte. Listen. Learn. And then move on in the direction only you can sense is the most authentic.
Follow the fear, lean into it, learn from the failures. Then try again. Sure, it’s a little harder, but by God we don’t need more imitators and more art-by-consensus. We need boldness, authenticity, and the kind of imperfect, flawed, honest art that can only be made when you listen to one voice alone: yours.
