Copycat Artists /28

As of July 2023, we won't be posting new episodes but you can connect with Bec & Michele and continue the conversation via the links below.


Something’s got Michele hot under the collar and it’s a bit awkward to talk about… how do you feel when you see an artist promoting and selling work that seems to be an obvious copy of someone else’s art? Is there such a thing as truly original art or are we all just picking up and mixing ideas from the same creative pool?

Bec and Michele talk about learning from other artists’ techniques, understanding how our art fits within current trends and the market cycle, and how to flex our creative power in such a way that we’re always leading.


Let's continue the conversation in OriginArt
