Giving in to irresponsible art
When I was a kid, you couldn’t find me without a marker or crayon in my hand. I loved art with every fiber of my being, and I felt compelled to draw every chance I got (much to the chagrin of the teachers grading my homework).
But as I got older, I became more tentative, more doubtful of my own abilities, more sensitive to my shortcomings. As soon as I hit adulthood, I kicked art to the curb, telling myself that it was childish, irresponsible, and not productive enough to be allowed.
After several years of fear and doubt stopping my creativity in its tracks, I began to realize that art wasn’t some idle waste of time — it was a core part of who I am as a person, as a human. I realized that art made me a better person, bit by bit.
Now, as a full-time artist and creator, it is my goal to help other people with the same challenges figure out how to inject a burst of creativity into their lives. I firmly believe that everyone — yes, even you — has the spark of creativity in them. Sometimes it just takes a little extra help for you to uncover the hidden jewels within, and I want to give you the tools to start digging.
