Personal Freedom and A Passion For The Future
note: this is not about quitting threadless, I dig it here
Have you ever joined something with amazing potential, only to see it wasted and fall apart- to become a perverse, or impotent version of its original or potential self?
Have you ever joined a group or a cause or some kind of organization, and even though the group became something you didn't care for, you stuck around hoping that eventually it would work itself out?
I did. And now, I quit! I will tell you something else, I feel wonderful about it. It may someday be something great, but you know what? So can so many other things, so many new things. So many things that didn't already let me down.
I realized recently, with a lot of luck and a little success, that I could finally move forward in life, assured that I was on the right path, ready to make some awesome (in my opinion) art, and to do so without the pretension of those that would for one reason or another, work against that.
So here's to all you aspiring artists, to all you professional illustrators, and to everyone in between and the few geniuses working outside the box. Good luck and don't ever let anyone tell you what you are or aren't, what you can or can't be.
