We have a fundamental belief that creative people are different. They are born with a natural ability to paint and draw, or maybe sing and dance. They have god given fashion sense and manage to always look cool while wearing something that would make the rest of us look like the lady who collects plastic bags in the park. They make their own clothes, dye their own hair and furnish their houses with vintage flea market finds transformed into unique home decor. They are cooler than you or I will ever be.
And it hurts artists and creatives more than the average person. Especially when it becomes embedded in the psyche of the artist.
