WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF ARTISTIC ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED, AND FROM WHO?
The one I hold the closest would be from my old professor and friend, Jeffrey Alan Love. Essentially it boils down to “Make the work for yourself.” Finding ways, no matter how small, to put myself into pieces, especially for clients, makes a huge difference for the quality of my work and my general headspace.
