Often times we artists decry the chore of marketing. What little time we have set aside for creating art is precious, and the thought of using any of that time for marketing is painful.
Imagine if things were reversed; that we were marketers faced with the chore of creating art, prying time out of out precious marketing hours to create art. Wouldn't that make for some interesting marketing strategies!
Marketing will never replace the passion we have for art, but if we develop a taste for it, it goes down a lot easier.
