Just when you think you've got it

Updated: Dec 31, 2020

You know the phrase - something about being a student for life is the most important thing.

You creatives out there? We need to be in art school for the rest of our lives. Even if you never set your foot inside one - it's not about those 4 years, it's about learning how to learn. You don't need to have gone to a fancy art school to learn that.

I recently started to believe something that is so detrimental to a creative that before long it could torpedo my career. I started to believe that I got it. That I was good enough. That I didn't need much input. I didn't need "teachers" in my life. Don't believe that lie. Search out for people that will give you their opinion, that will critique you, that will tell you that you have something to learn. Because we all do.
