i was recently asked, "do you have any advice you would give to aspiring artists? or encouragement?"
-do it for the love, not for the money. mostly cause you may starve, but youll be happy. -be who you are. dont compare yourself to other artists. -unlearn everything you learned in art school. what i mean is...whatever that part of your head is that tells you that 'you cant mix x medium with y medium'...tell it to shut up. -dont be afraid. there have to be hundreds of thousands of people out there that have amazing ideas trapped in their heads and no one will ever know...because theyre afraid. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST -dont ever stop creating...even if its on a napkin at that chinese restaurant.
