Isn’t the Internet great?

Never in human history have we had a better tool for getting our creative work in front of more people.

I’m now able to draw a picture on my iPad, and instantly share it to thousands via Twitter and Instagram. I may even pick up a few likes.

Disclosure: The Internet is NOT like a huge wee wee (or a bong for that matter).

The thing is, with such a wonderful, free tool, you’re not the only one doing it.

Millions of other bright-eyed artists are taking to the Internet to share their work too.

And so the challenge is not in the actual sharing of creative work, but in getting the attention it might deserve.

Attention is an extremely valuable currency in a world whose creators are clambering to be seen.

We need attention to have someone to create for in the first place.

We need attention to build a following; to make money; to gain recognition and to make a difference.
