WORK AS THERAPY.
Here’s the thing: this year has started out pretty rough for some us, personally as well as socially and professionally. I get it. It’s been hard. But the world keeps spinning and for some reason, other people expect you to keep going, too.
So when you find yourself feeling like the world is ending, maybe create a new world instead. Do it regularly, on a schedule, as a means of fighting your demons or finding your place in the universe or clearing your brain out for new ideas and learning.
You owe it to yourself, your talent, and the people who might experience your art.
Also, I need you people to keep me going. This community only exists because of all of us, and the world deserves the art that all of us have the talent to create.
