Kind of a personal one here, but I'd been thinking about it all day and all yesterday too.
But you know, sometimes I do stupid things, say stupid things, act ridiculously, get anxious over nothing, make tons of mistakes. I have silly ideas, and opinions not everyone agrees with. I try WAY too hard not to blunder socially. And there is sure a hell of a lot in the world I don't understand.
But when I sit down to draw, none of that bullshit matters anymore. I get so enthralled and excited by the idea that every day I get to wake up and tell stories about whatever I want for the rest of my days, to enjoy the world and entertain, whether anyone else likes it or not. And that hasn't changed since I was 6 years old and found out someone could actually grow up to do that.
Even if I still have a lot to learn about myself and the world, I'm glad to have art as my anchor.
Cheers everyone and continue to make great things!
