“Not myself today” - Partners for Mental Health installation - by Blok Design (Toronto, 2012)
Today someone reblogged something of mine and commented about being discouraged about art sometimes, which reminded me of this.
A family friend’s 6 or 7 year old daughter used to love to draw, but she started to find it frustrating, and so her mom asked me if I could give her daughter any advice. I ended up drawing/writing her this letter. I’d never really intended to show it to other people besides them, but when I saw that post today, I thought maybe it’s relevant!
If you want to see it, it’s right here!
Sage (and adorable) art advice from Korra BG painter Emily Tetri.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Exercises

"There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision, and for whom the lighting of every cigar, the drinking of every cup, the time of rising and going to bed every day, and the beginning of every bit of work, are subjects of express volitional deliberation."
An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.
