A couple of days ago I was feeling pretty odd about my growth as a person and as an artist. I felt like I wasn't really making as much progress as I should, and I didnt realize it but I was being pretty unfair to myself, robbing my "me" time to spend studying and researching new things to draw and new things to write. I guess I got hung up.
So. I went to see my bestie one day and requested them to do a tarot reading on me. After much reflection and insight, they quickly pinpointed the issue and gave me a pretty tearful peptalk and boost.
I see now that I have grown a lot. Two years ago I was simply the guy who drew sacred geometry and mandalas (which as you can see I haven't drawn in a while). The way I carry myself, as a person and as an artist, has changed and improved. 2 years ago I honestly didnt see myself drawing faces... whales... FLOWERS (still perfecting lol). I didnt expect to be able to communicate complex emotions through my art. So, I snapped out of it. And my journey continues.
Thank you @wry_rai for your support and your peptalk and all your love! Honestly thank everyone who has supported me to this point <3
If you're doing something you love. Surround yourself with people that love you. Share every ounce of progress with them. Share your ups and downs. Theres no better way to go through a journey of self discovery and growth than with those who support you by your side.
And when you find yourself in a ditch, dont be afraid to reach out. Snap out of it.
