Sometimes I wish I was the best, but mostly I just want to be seen.
I guess it's just that it seems like "only the best will do" and to hell
with the rest, only, go ahead and follow your dreams (to what ever end.)
It can feel like if you want to be seen you have to be the best
but in reality if you want to be seen you have to persist or exist.
Learning about failure is something I've done on my own, I've never felt like
it was ok to fail at something, the process of learning needed to be more like a game for me, if I could make something into a game I would want to do it. But to be good at something has always been important to me, even though the getting good at something is the important part, being versus getting. Patience is the key to getting good at something, patience while you practice. Failure can teach you what to practice.
I have been an artist all my life and a freelance illustrator for about 30 years and. Some of my earliest inspiration came from my mother, Frazetta, and comics! When I was a kid, I used to copy John Buscema, Ross Andru, and Steve Ditko comics. In 2018 I decided to re-devote my-self to my visual art and to get into self-publishing comics. I have 3 self -published comics under my belt and I have been published in local magazine and zines. I also do illustration for CD/Albums, posters and t-shirt design, magazine covers.
