A shelfie seems like a generous way to share your library of ideas, instead of your silly selfie face. Shelfies also reveal how unique you think your intellect is, but they can show how deep is your soul.
How can you respect the rights of image creators? Simple. Don’t download their work without permission, and don’t claim “fair use” if you do. Check out these royalty-free sources for free art instead.
The marketplace is so crowded with content and platforms for sharing and communicating. Choice is a powerful thing. But it can leave little space for the creative ideas that are waiting to bubble up.
You are an inexhaustible fountain of ideas. If you don’t believe it, find some inspiration here.
There’s no need to make the creative process into a big mystery to outsiders, or even yourself. It all comes from your influences.
You won’t be noticed, much less discovered—there is too much competition from the entire global community for your one little drop in the big web bucket to get found. Instead, start local, where your roots are.
