if you have artistic friends, then for heavens sake do ALL YOU CAN to support them. how can they ever hope to be recognised and celebrated for their gift if they don’t even have the support of those closest to them?? if they’re in bands, buy their EPs and shirts and see them live. if they take photographs, buy their prints. if they’re comedians, go see them and plug the shit out of them.
i’m guilty of not doing this as much as i ought to but i’m trying my best to turn this around. to those creative folk who i should have done more - i am sorry and i will strive to do better.
also i know this is preachy and i nearly pressed ‘cancel’ but i feel this is something we can often fail to bear in mind. FEED THE ARTISTS
