I was asked to write this blog post on Ann Kullberg's Color magazine website, reminding us to pursue our art in hardships ... "No matter who rejects you. No matter that they say colored pencil is not a traditionally accepted media. No matter that no one gets your point of view, your humor, or the stories you are drawing. No matter that someone will always be better than you. You can after all, keep striving to improve, to get accepted even though, to make people see your story. To get better at hands and mouths because a portrait doesn’t have to be a picture with any flaws."
