I’ve been practicing lettering and illustration for a long time. I definitely have a long way to go, and I can be very hard on myself. I stepped away from my workstation frustrated that something didn’t turn out the way I wanted and stopped to read this in Liam’s nursery. This is one of my first really big lettering and illustrating pieces. It was all done by hand with acrylic paint on an old chalkboard. I can sit here and criticize myself, making excuses for the reasons why I shouldn’t try to sell my work...there are more talented people, I don’t have time, I already have a full time job, I don’t have the skills...but the truth is those are just that..excuses. And I can sit here and believe them or I can take the advice of Christopher Robin and be a little kinder to myself. .
Be kind to everyone my friends, especially you.
