One reply on “When Your Friend Becomes a Famous Artist”

  1. Everyone will have to deal with this, at some point in their careers. I find it best to be supportive but stay neutral in your feelings on anyone’s work. Inevitably, the work that you think might “sucks” gets elevated, and you’re left with bitterness. Be happy for others’ success and take the long perspective… Even if you have to convince yourself that no one is famous on the moon…. yet. 😉
