On Trend

trendsetter or trend forgetter?

Artists tend to fall into one of four categories when it comes to trends, with most people straddling more than one. Where do you fit in? Are you a trend lover, hater, setter, or forgetter?


Check out my column The Creative Pulse in the paper or digital November/December issue of Cloth Paper Scissors to read more about the phenomenon of trends and how they impact (or do not impact) artists.

Love reading your column. Ah, trends...the bane of many an artist's existence, especially when pursuing licensing. I feel it's better to follow your own voice. Authentic work usually finds its own audience. Can't wait to read (or hear) your thoughts on this. Have a great weekend!

I find i'am always behind on trends... I seem to come to it in my own time...I can't say i don't 'notice' them. Most of the time you can't help it when they are everywhere but i try not to let the trends sway me. I try to just BE wherever i'am at, at the moment. CPS emailed me a free download of that issue and i've leafed thru it but i didn't notice your artical. I will have to go back and check now! :) Hugs! deb

Sometimes I am ahead of the trends and just don't know it! Guess that is why I agree with Shelby- finding your own voice is the best way for me!
