It's a brave statement for me to call myself an illustrator. Even though I've been drawing since my chubby little hands could pick up a crayon, going to art school ruined my confidence as an illustrator. I was surrounded by so many incredible artists that had so much skill and polish on their work. I retreated into a hole where I couldn't even look at a sketch in my notebook without thinking I was terrible and worthless.
I'M SO EFFING GLAD THAT SHIP HAS SAILED! -- BYE GIRL.
I found joy in my work again, and there's nothing that can stop me from drawing from here on out.
