There is no "art world". There are hunderds of different worlds, some overlapping, some not. If one u like wont have u, u will need to start your own.
to overcome imposter syndrome, have confidence in your depth of curiosity rather than your expertise.
"Creativity is then better thought of as an agent of desire: what do you long to create and have the power to create, and what is something that you can create? These should be your guiding questions. We live in the age where life’s biggest uncertainty is not how we can make something, but should––and for all the limited “shoulds” we have––create something that matters to you."
You have to be curious about the world in which you live. Look things up. Chase down every reference. Go deeper than anybody else - that's how you'll get ahead. (p. 19)
