Do it yourself,
Its a trend among indie and hipster circles and a tool for young artists/creators with a vision and a dream but maybe not much else. A tool in the sense that with the internet and social networking in its golden age, what you want to do can be exposed and cultivated without investors, corporate interests etc.
Proxart is doing just that, with events, and now a magazine….. we are creating a movement, cultivating a idea, without what is needed traditionally
Basically if you have an idea or something you want to do, do not let anything stop you
