DIY Genius...

How To Be an Artistic Genius
A Ten-Step Program

  1. Find an Artistic Genius to copy.
  2. If discovered, deny copying.
  3. Continue copying.
  4. Seek out powerful symbols, ideas or totems to include in your art as content.
  5. Check to make sure that content is offensive and negative.
  6. Accept accolades from audience who accepts offensiveness as Artistic Genius.
  7. Ego inflates accordingly. Enjoy.
  8. Face criticisms from a minority who are actually offended by offensive content.
  9. Become artistic martyr via attacks that reinforce and validate your special authority to use offensive subject matter.
  10. Artistic Genius achieved via mimicry, negativity and offensiveness. 
All joking aside, this process is everywhere in the Art world.  I know it especially well because I've done it myself.
