WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
“A drawing can always be better—it’s the idea you are are communicating that makes it worthwhile. I learned through many mentors and peers that there will always be ways to push myself artistically, but ideas have a power to connect to others. I build a drawing tool belt to serve the purpose of communicating better. Even when my drawings aren’t perfect, at least maybe someone out there will enjoy my Harry Potter fan art.”
