dude your art is fucking awesome and is a breathe of fresh air to me. I'm glad you can get this exposure with these other channels and I hope you can turn this into a career. I hope you can flood those ideas out like a burrito breaking open. Honestly one of the few artists that actually have creativity on paper. I wanna write more but I'm just gonna end this with
Keep it up!!
Proud of Ya!
Thanks a bunch man, and these conversations really help with the Burrito breaking progress :D
Mobilespider is wise listen to him. I think you're being hard on yourself. You're doing just fine. The road is always rough. Probably rougher in the line of work you chose but hey you stuck with it and youre doing great. You are a talented guy and an ever nicer human being. Hang in there boo
Thanks Luis! I will bring you and nice bottle of whisky on Pico day, that way if I cry on your shoulder I wont feel to guilty
Don't sweat it dude
I've been in this exact same boat for years.
You might not be making your own content, but you're still sharpening your skills, making connections, and learning new things.
I was done with college years ago yet I'm STILL struggling to make my own content AND trying to make a living. I haven't even figured it out yet.
Just take it one step at a time. Our profession doesn't have the quickest or best payoff.
Thanks Ed, glad to know a talented guy like yourself goes through the same stuff.
that balance is a hard one, but eventually you'll find it.
as far as not being where you want to be, a few weeks ago i had a very similar conversation with a friend about the work we were making a few years ago and how we knew even at the time that it wasn't really good. how we were embarrassed to show other people our work. he brought up this great quote by ira glass about a gap between taste and skill, really in line with what i was trying to say with 'your art is shit.' here's that quote: https://vimeo.com/85040589
like everyone else has said, you are probably being overly hard on yourself, but that's not totally a bad thing. shows that you know where you want to be. and despite any trouble you're having, you seem like you're in good standing to get there. see you at pico
Thanks Dylan, that video was very helpful and well said. I now understand what you meant in the "you art is shit" video. Your awesome, and im super hyped to chill with you at Pico <3
Yeah, sure can be sad doing work-for-hire, and yeah your old stuff might be a bit tatty, but both are proof that you're in it, and getting better (and better connected) all the time. That's a big deal dude, congrats!
Hope to see you at the party, I'll be an old short guy trying not to look out of place.... hey wait, have we met at any of the previous Pico days!? All you kids look alike lol, but it's your work that sets y'all apart!
Lol thanks dude, and yea we met! I remember you being super fun to t
All to, looking forward to chatting more!
Hey man, your art is great. I could say more, but others have already said it. Keep on keeping on. You help inspire me getting back into art and whatnot.
I hope to meet you at Pico Day!
