Wise words from a very talented illustrator.

My personal favorites:

6. Goof off on a regular basis.

7. If you want to work on your art, work on your life. All those personality traits that aren’t working for you will come back to haunt you in your career (i.e. assertiveness, fear of conflict, fear of confrontation.) It’s all connected.

13. Don’t worry about whether or not you are good (good is subjective and most people are not great judges of their own work), just keep making work.

14. Ignore cool. Successful people do not try to be hip, they just do work that excites them.

15. Always come back to work that excites you. Even if you get off track for a while. Do personal work on a regular basis, show it to others. You can reinvent yourself at any time.

Not Just A Handsome Face.

I don’t want to be 85 years old and have my grandkids go, “Ewwww. Grandpa did some dumb shit,” I’d rather have them say, “Wow, man, you’re nuts!”
