Thank you! I am based out of Los Angeles at the moment, but am currently being a nomad and fulfilling my deep uncontrollable urge to get away and travel. I’m usually away from Los Angles every couple of months it seems like. I don’t know when I will be back, but if/when I find out…..I will let everyone know.

I purposely deleted all 600+ messages in my inbox. There’s just no way I was going to answer them all……ever. Now I feel better. Also, I took anon off because some of you guys are just fucking weird.

how to improve your art:

  • practice
  • practice
  • every single day, as much as you possibly can, practice
  • experiment
  • experiment a lot
  • be inspired
  • keep drawing
  • use references 
  • just keep drawing
  • don’t be afraid to use rulers and grids and guidelines for practice
  • study from life
  • copy the masters (but don’t claim it as your own work)
  • keep practicing
  • keep drawing
  • whether you like your art or not, just keep drawing
  • don’t base yourself on anyone else’s art or anyone else’s standards
  • and most importantly: don’t ever quit.
  • if you quit, you’ll never get any better. ever.

Yesssssssss

If you’re like me and feel this way sometimes, here’s an excellent Ted Talk that’ll help for sure. I’d also recommend this whole playlist as well, to help re-contextualize how to think about your work in a more positive manner :)
