The title of this video are a question that I honestly don't have a straight answer to. I can't say, yes I want to be famous or no, I don't want to be famous
For transparency purposes, I mean famous for my painting and drawing efforts.
While I don't understand wanting to be famous for its own sake, I understand wanting to be famous in one's field.
In cases of people like me, the bigger following we have, the better living we tend to make and if we're actually famous, we obviously have a really big following
Also, achieving fame, particularly on a national or international level, seems like the ultimate form of validation. As if you can say to your naysayers, "I must be talented. All these people say so."
I can't really say I don't want to be famous because, of course of course who wouldn’t welcome an enormous amount of recognition, which is ultimately what fame is.
But I don't intend to wait until I'm famous before I celebrate my achievements, because that would be wasting a lot of time. Also, I believe in being grateful and enjoying whatever bit of recognition we get now.
