I decided it was time for a light-hearted inspirational post.  While I assume that most of my blog readers are interested in learning the how-to’s, how-come’s and how-do-I’s of art licensing, it is important to remember this:

You are the only you out there and no matter what you do, bringing the best you to the table is the greatest give to the world.

Bring your art, your creativity and your perspective to the table.  Learn from those who have done what you want to do but don’t try to be them – they’re already taken.  Figure out how you might fit in the industry and add your own flair.

Sesame Street has been empowering kid’s (and hopefully their parents!) to embrace their uniqueness and talents and to appreciate the diversity of everyone around them and around the world.  I found this new song “What I Am” by Will.i.am and the Sesame Street crew to be fun and uplifting.  It even inspired me to think of what makes me – well – me.  I encourage you to do the same.

Today – celebrate the uniqueness that is you.  You are one of a kind!

Here’s to your creative success!
