How to deal with haters

By | Blog

Notes from Grant Cardone – notes I had from a while back which saids a lot.

Ignoring them actually works very well. But a second powerful way of seeing haters is the following:

  • We are one
  • We came here together
  • We were all made at the same time
  • We aren’t really separate from each other.
  • We are made of the same energy.
  • The Earths problems were designed.
  • There’s a huge line of souls wanting to come in, it may have taken thousands of years for you to be here, it’s a great privilege to be alive on Earth.

The truth about my Icons 

By | Blog

Here are some facts about my icon design work which is all over the internet.

My icons have reached over 20-30 million+ downloads, keeping in mind that I have over 11,000+ Free Icons, mostly found on www.flaticon.com which were purchased for a fee and over 3,000+ Free Social Media Icons found on www.iconfinder.com I also have 15,000+ Icons on The Noun Project which anyone can download with Credit or without.

I guess I went ALL IN as they say, I’m always inspired by other Designers and can’t wait to get an idea on Illustrator and quickly up on the Internet.

So yes I created a passive income, although I’m still thinking about this, I mean I’m making money now, but it seems I’m just getting pay late.

I actually put my icon design on the side because I wasn’t making too much to live off them in California so was my mindset in the past. The impact made on to this Planet has been a greater and better reward.

I didn’t realize the impact I was making until later, until hundreds of messages and Icon requests later.

I might have missed a message from you, please re send it. I get many.

The Icon Design competition is high but I worry not about this, I want other designers participating to do well and I’m inspired by what they do. In fact if they do better than me I’m freaking happy for them.

Seems like this adventure is far from over, it calls me every morning when I wake up and see how many downloads I’ve had.

My icons are so Popular people even steal them and claimed them as their own. (freewebicons.com)

I don’t mind my icons showing up on other websites and credit is giving. (Icon-icons.com) In Fact it helps me!

I don’t really have time or care about chasing people who have stolen my work and claim it as their own work. I move to the next thing and just create.

Making a living just designing Icons is hard, that’s why I think that.. if this is your goal and you have ambition you can create this reality for yourself.

I’m still creating this for myself, even with all my downloads I have a long way to go, I don’t see it as a negative, just a process. A good one.

If you want more Icon Downloads offer FREE ICONS, when you care about your audience you will get what you want (Money, recognition, etc)

Let me know if you have any questions.

I’m still learning, Icon Design continues..

Are Artist Born? Absolutely 100% Yes! without a Doubt

By | Blog

I can speak from personal experience, check out my art here: www.afredocreates.com/art

Since I was young as all the stories go… I remembered being able to draw stuff with ease. When I was in middle school my Art skills were advanced enough to impress my friends and teachers, in High School I started selling my Art to an awesome Japanese friend named Richard Tran (which I lost contact with and looking for, where you at Richard?) His love for Art was so fascinating and new to me, here was a guy from a different background and culture who had a passion for Art strokes, paint and just original and fan work. His excitement and enthusiasm in Art and in particular my Art made me stronger, it enforced my talent and continuation of my skill which lead me to working with some of top creative companies on this Planet today.

But getting back to are we born with Art Talent I say Yes, just as some people are born with People skills, leadership skills, compassion. Just as some people are natural at building businesses, or playing in sports, or playing an instrument, so are Artist born with talent. I always had an unfair advantage if you want to call it that, I always saw things in perspective. I believe I was an artist long before this life time. I might had started from zero a long time ago and it’s just a skill that comes back with you. Of course I now lack other areas/skills but definitely not Art.

I’ve seen friends learn to draw from zero experience, it’s definitely a skill that can be learned with great dedication, passion and patience, like everything there will be times where you will hate what you love, I think it’s normal. I hated creating so many icons and seeing so many sunsets doing it, but I’m happy of all the work I’ve done for companies and for myself which you can see here or on other sites.

More to come..

Gary Vee Notes

Insecurity slows shit down.

If you don’t give a fuck of what people think, you can do everything.

No emotion in the market.

The market doesn’t care.

If your not your biggest fan you lost.

Complaining is a zero return investment.

I make all my money while you pounder.
