I’m 23 years old and I graduated from CSUF with a BS in illustration around May this year. I tell people that I’m a freelance illustrator with a part time job at a sushi restaurant when in actuality I am a struggling illustrator with a part time job at a sushi restaurant.
Obviously, I still have a long way to go.
For around seven months now I have been neglecting my art blog, something I have kept alive since 2009. It’s been brought up to my attention several times but trust me, no one knows it more than I do.
I am struggling, a lot, with my identity and drawing. I never had a clear vision other than a “middle school dream” about where I was headed. I knew for sure that comics inspired me to draw so I wanted to be in that position where I could also inspire young minds like myself as a 7-year-old.
If this makes no sense to you, that’s okay!
I’ll be updating this blog on the regular now, and I’m aiming to improve and be the best artist I can be. I’m not going to compare art and let my insecurities hold me back because I know I am capable of something better.
