Q

What advice would you give beginner artists?


W. Kamau Bell responded on 08/12/2010
A

Always pay attention to the artists around you, famous and otherwise. Always create new material. Never be afraid to try new things. Seek inspiration from things not directly related to what you are doing. This can keep your perspective fresh.
