"Not being afraid to post your sketches online is really, really important, I think also because you're going to make a bunch of garbage, you're going to make more garbage than you're going to make a good thing honestly and like that's totally fine. That's normal. And your progression as an artist and exploration is something that you shouldn't let go of and you should embrace it if you want to."
"And it also kind of proves that like, oh, you know, just because you don't like a specific theme when you get into it and you actually give it the effort, you can grow to like it. You can you can give your little flair to it. And then all of a sudden, it's something that you might actually enjoy"
