Sometimes I think about how my younger self would react if shown my current art. I think I’d go wild and ask “really?? I’ll be able to do that??” And it feels. Nice. To know that I’m doing things I thought I couldnt do ‘cause there were these little secret techniques. But it’s technique and practice and there’s more I can learn and improve upon. As a little kid I used to believe the starving artist myth. But I’m here. And I’m gonna succeed.
