Lessons I’ve Learned as an Artist

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

  • Don’t compare your art to other artist’s art.

  • You have to create a large body of consistent work to track your progress as an artist.

  • There will be times when you want to make something, but it’s just an urge without motivation or ideas to back it up. Still try to make something, but don’t be too upset if you end up not making anything.

  • Don’t buy sketchbooks for no reason. It’s a waste of money; finish the current sketchbook(s) you have before you decide to buy a brand new sketchbook… I know it’s tempting to buy 2 new sketchbooks because the design on one of them is, “So inspiring”, but you have 5 semi-new sketchbooks at home. Don’t do it. Trust me… I know.
