Ebook recommendation: "Find your artistic identity", by Eider Armendariz
Today I'm writing a bit of a different post. Normally, I share my concerts, news or experiences, but this time I'm sharing something I think it can be useful for you!
Recently, my friend Eider Armendariz, violinist (and I would say, artist in general) has published an eBook called Find your artistic identity: A guide to become the artist you want to be. It is a super interesting, attractive and practical guide that, from my point of view, accompanies you on your path of finding your personality as an artist. It is very easy to read, it is interactive (there are even some exercises for you to practise what you are learning in the process), it makes you reflect and it is beautifully designed.
The eBook has links to interesting videos, activities and a very appealing layout! But the best part, of course, is the content. Here I share with you some quotes that I find very inspiring!
The self isn't considered an unchanging core aspect of our personalities; instead, it's seen as a dynamic aspect that isbeing reconstructed all the time, based on the experiences, situations, people… we interact with in everyday life. In other words, we are not just influenced by others, but are somehow made up of interactions with others.
Your story (background) and your values are part of who you are, and that means that they will inevitably be the basic foundation of your artistic identity.
Why are you doing what you do? What are your purpose, cause and belief? What can you bring to the people and how can you do it?
Knowing how you don’t want to be is also important. You can do the same with the artists you don’t like and add those words to a new column in the table: HOW I DON’T WANT TO BE AS AN ARTIST. It will help you make sure you stand as far as possible from who you don’t want to be.
I could add thousands of quotes I found inspiring in Eider's eBook, but I encourage you to do it yourself!
