Qualities of an art-buddy

So, one day I realized that it is all cool that I am doing this arty-farty stuff but I simply don’t enjoy doing any of this creative stuff alone – I need buddies. So, later I found a book ‘Creativity for Life’ by Eric Maisel in which he describes the qualities of an art-buddy.  These qualities – he says – are important so our fragile hearts as artists and future creators would be protected and supported by our buddies.


  • respect my work
  • speak truth fully with love and respect
  • give commercial and artistic support
  • share my views
  • genuinely believes that I will succeed in my endeavours
  • has suggestions for me
  • calls me great
  • in return I can show my gratitude to them
