an artist’s life
I want to believe that my thoughts are these cute, encouraging creatures. Ones that push me to create and succeed. But I know they’re a bit more sinister.
My thoughts have been racing as I learn about publishing and being an author. As an illustrator I was protected from the constant reviews, awards and opportunities that are either had or not. The insecurities around other authors. The scrutiny of my work, my words and my choices. I fight myself and my thoughts to keep creating.
Because I want to believe in this vision of an artist’s life. That it’s full of love, color and hope. I want to believe that for our country, our world as well.
So I focus on the things I can control – making good art and good stories. And I live with my cute, sinister thoughts and try not to let them swallow me whole.
