Post Secret and Supporting Artists

post secret blog
I could relate to this postcard over at the Post Secret blog. Not because I’ve ever been in a band or lost a lover because of being an artist, but it is an issue that comes up from time to time.
Artists often have to sacrifice a lot for their art, including those that don’t believe in the work we do. I don’t think it’s important for our loved ones to love our art, but I do think it’s important that they’re supportive.
The person in the “stupid band” above has probably improved since breaking up with the creator of the postcard. Or he/she may just be a masochist and simply attracted another pessimistic partner.
Here’s some more Post Secret fun here, here, and the Post Secret book here.

    i think the post secret site is really cool. i love looking at the different post cards people find and then how they choose to convey their message, not that i beleive all the messages. some are just too “out there”. have you seen the soul reveal site? soulreveal.com. it looks like it’s based on the same theme as post secret.
