WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
After watching Kiki’s Delivery Service too many times, there’s this bit of indirect advice I stumbled upon, kind of related to the scene between Ursula and Kiki with the painting: There’s no point in being afraid of art, because fear creates nothing. Better you make something and heck it up real bad, or perhaps end up with something you like and learn from, than make nothing at all. That advice, and “Stay on your own shit” from Childish Gambino.
