"Seeking self-satisfaction on social media is a huge danger. You can get a pat on the back for your work very quickly, but then find out that it's coming from a thirteen-year-old instead of a business owner who wants to work with you. If you experience too much of that, you become delusional about being the shit and you believe that people are familiar with you work when they have no idea. Instead, focus on building a strong portfolio and a body of work, even if it's kind of sloppy and imperfect." - Kimou Meyers / Grotesk in The Great Discontent, Issue 4
Work first, social media second. After writing about my changing view on how I use Instagram, this quote really stuck out to me today as I finished The Great Discontent.
